As the word goes, Mulligan was a true “Outlaw” and was one of the toughest wrestlers to ever come through the business…Mulligan also played professional football….

from Wikipedia:

As a young man, Windham played football at Texas Western College, now known as the University of Texas at El Paso. He then went on to play for the New York Jets during the 1966 pre-season and received tryouts with the New Orleans Saints and Denver Broncos. After football, at the urging of Wahoo McDaniel, Windham trained with Joe Blanchard in Corpus Christi, Texas and later with Verne Gagne and became a professional wrestler in the American Wrestling Association. Billed as being 6′ 9″ and over 300 pounds, Windham was a rawboned cowboy in the vein of Bobby Duncum or Stan Hansen.
