“Superstar” Billy Graham
“Superstar” Billy Graham was not the first rulebreaking WWF World Heavyweight Champion, but he was the first who was held an extended reign as the champion. Graham’s autobiography was titled “Twenty years too soon” and that wasn’t too far off as he certainly predated many of the other muscle bound grapplers who would follow. Countless wrestlers cited him as an influence in terms of look, in ring skill and style and if the WWE Hall of Fame was based on influence, Graham can’t help but belong. Sadly, he has had many disputes with the WWE in the past and it appears that he his not on good terms with them now.
