“A lot of people has asked me for updates on James Harris status,” she wrote on Facebook. “The Doctor said he’s looking good this morning.”

In a separate post from Sunday evening, Juanita asked for prayers from family, fans and strangers alike.

Through it all, those in the WWE community have shared their fond memories of an athlete who made a name for himself in the community.
