Blackjack Mulligan (Robert “Bob” Windham) died at the age of 73, according to WWE.
Windham had been in poor health, including being hospitalized in February.
Windham, who was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame 10 years ago, was the father of Barry Windham and grandfather of current WWE stars Bo Dallas and Bray Wyatt.
Windham was an old-school, tough-guy Texas wrestler with his trademark handlebar mustache. Windham and Blackjack Lanza held Tag Title gold all over the U.S. in the 1970s, including one time in then-WWWF (WWE).
