Twitter reacts to the death of WWE legend Billy Graham

WWE is saddened to learn of the passing of WWE Hall of Famer “Superstar” Billy Graham. A former WWE Champion, Graham set the template for a generation of superstars who have followed in his footsteps with his glamorous clothing sense, standout interviews, and bodybuilding physique.

Born in Arizona, Graham developed an interest in bodybuilding and began growing his body by making his own weights out of cement. He worked so hard that he was able to bench press 605 pounds, just 11 pounds off the world record. Graham originally gained notoriety after one of his photo shoots with Arnold Schwarzenegger was published in Joe Weider’s Muscle & Fitness magazine.

When Eldridge Wayne Coleman, man born Eldridge Wayne Coleman, entered the sports entertainment business in 1970, he changed his name to Billy Graham in honor of the preacher. When he joined the AWA in 1972, he earned the nickname “Superstar”. He has distinguished himself as a pioneer in the genre with his combination of ring talents and bodybuilding physique. Graham also proceeded to compete in bodybuilding and strongman events, where he gained recognition for his sculpted and ripped 22-inch biceps.

Graham began his interviews by imitating boxing legend, Muhammad Ali, coining a slogan: “I am the man of the hour, the man with strength, sweeter than sour!” Graham has unleashed the genre’s beautifully written regular on TV, with his similarly silly director, The Grand Wizard, using his knack for gabbling to build himself a box office hit that will sell out whatever stadium he’s the main event in.

Fans on Twitter were devastated by the passing of Billy Graham

Graham’s most notable achievement in WWE was on April 30, 1977, when he performed the near impossible task of dethroning Bruno Sammartino for the WWE Championship. The Superstar held the championship for over a year, successfully defending it against superstars like Dusty Rhodes, Gorilla Monsoon, and “High Chief” Peter Maivia until he was deposed in controversial fashion by Bob Backlund.

Graham retired from wrestling in 1987, at the age of 44, and went on to work as a manager and later as a color commentator.

Triple H “Superstar” Billy Graham was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2004. Graham’s inspirational narrative and influence on the sports entertainment business was covered two years later in the WWE documentary “20 Years Too Soon: The Superstar” Billy Graham Story. “
