WWE Hall Of Famer Superstar Billy Graham has claimed that he has signed a new agreement with WWE, after last wrestling for the company over 30 years ago.
Superstar Billy Graham is an icon of the wrestling world from the days before Hulkamania was a twinkle in either Hulk Hogan or Vince McMahon’s eye.
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.
Superstar Billy Graham has now taken to social media with the claim that he is back in the WWE family, saying he has signed a 5-year “nostalgia agreement” with the company:
“WWE Nostalgia Agreement
Hello fans everywhere. “This is an official statement by me to inform everyone that I have signed a 5 year Nostalgia Contract with the WWE. I of course cannot discuss the details of my contract. I want to personally
thank Vince McMahon for offering this opportunity to me and I hope that it will be profitable for the WWE and for myself.”
Superstar Billy Graham”
The 78-year-old was part of the 2004 WWE Hall Of Fame where he was inducted by one of the many stars he influenced over the years, Triple H.
