Cornette took to Twitter to correct false reports about Eaton suffering a heart attack. Cornette says he did not have a heart attack but had congestive heart failure and fluid buildup in his chest and legs, thus causing his heart to work harder.

In case you didn’t know: Barry Windham and Bobby Eaton appear on WCW Monday Nitro and WCW WorldWide.

Eaton is considered one of the greatest tag team wrestlers of all-time and one of the nicest guys ever in the wrestling business.
