Monday’s RAW lineup in Birmingham, AL, had to be changed somewhat as both Bo Dallas (Taylor Rotunda) and Bray Wyatt (Windham Rotunda) flew home from Birmingham to Tampa as grandfather, Bob “Blackjack Mulligan” Windham, is in bad shape.
Mike Rotunda, a producer with WWE, Bob’s son-in-law, and the father of Wyatt and Dallas, flew home with his sons today as well. Both Bray and Bo did work WWE house shows Sunday night, so something obviously changed between then and today in order to cause their trip back.
The 73-year-old Windham was hospitalized in June 2015 after suffering a heart attack. He and partner “Blackjack” Jack Lanza were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in April 2006. He worked all over the world as a tag team wrestler and as a singles wrestler in all of the key promotions, winning titles with Lanza, Ric Flair, and Dick Murdoch.
We’ll discuss any updates or story developments on tonight’s edition of Wrestling Observer Radio.
