Concerning Health Update On WWE Hall Of Famer Superstar Billy Graham

Superstar Billy Graham

Superstar Billy Graham has had a number of health setbacks over the years, and his most recent hospitalization has taken a concerning turn.

Graham was hospitalized back in January with a number of health concerns, and according to a new update posted to the WWE Hall of Famer’s official Facebook page, both Graham (real name Wayne Coleman) and his wife Valerie have contracted COVID-19. The Facebook post reads as follows:

Hello friends,

The latest update from Wayne’s wife Valerie is rather dire. In addition to Wayne’s on-going medical issues, resulting in them spending 200 dollars a day out of pocket for his care at a rehab hospital, they both now also have covid!

Valerie has used up all her sick and personal time at her job, and is no longer getting a paycheck while she is out with covid. In addition, she cannot visit Wayne due to having covid, and is having difficulty getting any updates on his condition. They are facing serious issues.

Please pray for them both. It is much appreciated.

If anyone can donate any amount, it would be tremendously appreciated at this critical time.

Thank you, and God Bless

Superstar Billy Graham Is A WWE Hall Of Famer

Graham’s wrestling career began in 1970 as part of Stu Hart’s Stampede Wrestling in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. As was the custom in the territory days, Superstar moved around a lot before finding himself part of Vincent J. McMahon’s WWWF for the first time in 1975.

When Graham returned to the promotion in 1977, he did the unthinkable when he defeated Bruno Sammartino for the WWWF Championship, ending the legend’s second reign as champion at a whopping 1,237 days.

In these days the WWWF Champion was touring champion much like the NWA World Heavyweight Champion and Superstar Billy Graham defended his title against the likes of Dusty Rhodes, Rocky Johnson and even took on NWA Champion Harley Race in a special double title match at NWA SuperBowl of Wrestling in 1978 that ended in a one-hour time limit draw.

The 79-year-old is part of the WWE Hall Of Fame class of 2004, where he was inducted by one of the many stars he influenced over the years, Triple H.

Everyone at Inside the Ropes sends our best wishes to Superstar Billy Graham and his wife Valerie during this difficult time.
