  • In The Beginning
  • Barry Windham is the son of the legendary Blackjack Mulligan..

    Jay A. wrote: Between 1983-84, while wrestling for Championship Wrestling from Florida (CWF), Ron Bass, Dusty Rhodes and Windham developed a hillarious angle. The legend was Rhodes and Bass were childhood friends back in Texas. Dusty's mother had given Bass a saddle as a child. Bass brought the saddle out on televised matches and basically alluded to Dusty's mother favoring him over her own son. Windham, who was then the Florida heavyweight champion, reasoned that Bass was unworthy of the gift. A match, which would be televised, was between Bass and Windham. Bass and Windham had already enjoyed a long running feud, where Bass would often refer to Windham as a 'snot nose punk'. Windham would place his title up and Bass would in return release the saddle to Windham if he was defeated. Windham defeated Bass in what was probably the longest televised match in CWF history (about 40 mins). Bass had different ideas and instead of walking away from the mat, used the One Man Gang to help him place the saddle on Windham's back and Bass 'rode' him around in the ring. In a few minutes other wrestlers, most notably Windham's father Blackjack Mulligan, came to the rescue and stopped the 'humiliating' treatment. It was one of the best and most hillarious moments in televised wrestling history!
