WWE Hall Of Famer Superstar Billy Graham Has Passed Away At 79
(Heard a one-of-a-kind interview from Mike Tenay, as he was talking to “Superstar” Billy Graham, on the old ‘Wrestling Insiders” Saturday night radio show, years ago, and on that show Billy Graham said, “yes my name is Wayne Coleman”…

He was giving out the inside scoop right there on the radio, with “The Professor” Mike Tenay in the house…The radio show came in from Las Vegas, Nevada, and it was broadcast over the old SEN/Sports Entertainment Network….

Great stuff with Superstar Billy Graham, and Graham was a major influence for many wrestlers, over the years….His style and look were wide-open, and he was even known to come in with a Ninja/Karate look on more than one occasion…Tye-dye shirts, huge arms/biceps, the long side-burns, those were all trademark “Superstar Billy Graham features….

He had a real-life high squeaky voice, and he sure went through some terrible health ordeals/issues, over his last years here on earth….”Superstar” Billy Graham has gone home, and as Wayne Coleman, he leaves us in a very quiet manner.)

RIP:”Superstar” Billy Graham/Wayne Coleman

Sad news for the professional wrestling world as WWE Hall of Famer and former WWE Champion “Superstar” Billy Graham has passed away at the age of 79.

Fellow Hall of Famer “Nature Boy” Ric Flair broke the news on Twitter, which was later confirmed by Dave Meltzer.

“The Superstar Billy Graham Just Left Us,” Flair wrote. “THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR INFLUENCE On My Career!” 

Graham had recently been placed on life support after a year that saw the wrestling legend contract COVID-19, a life-threatening ear infection that spread to his skull, inflammation in his lungs, and even renal failure. Graham’s doctors nearly took him off life support two days ago but his wife had refused. 

Graham’s influence was not confined to just “The Nature Boy.” In his reaction to Graham’s passing, Meltzer wrote “My entire life, and tons of others from Flair to Hogan to Jesse to tons you wouldn’t know and tons you would changed because of him.”

“Superstar” Billy Graham was a colorful, outsized personality at a time when professional wrestling was still presented as a dry sport. With his bulging muscles, bleached-blonde hair, and tie-dye attire, Graham was seen by many as the first “sports entertainer,” as his garish persona was aped by wrestling legends like Jesse “The Body” Ventura and even Hulk Hogan. Graham was also known for being one of the first wrestlers to heavily use steroids, a practice that Graham later regretted as years of steroid abuse took a toll on his health and the health of other wrestlers. Graham has advocated for its responsible use by past WWE Champions. Graham was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2004.
