WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair revealed on "The Steve Austin Show" podcast that legendary wrestler Nick Bockwinkel, 78, is now suffering from Alzheimer's disease.
It was apparently known some time in various wrestling circles. Bockwinkel has been described as "no longer addressing everyone" when appearing at Cauliflower Alley conventions.
Bockwinkle competed in the American Wrestling Association (AWA) during the 70s and 80s. He is a former multi-time AWA World champion and co-holder of the AWA World tag team title.
