WWE and the entire wrestling world have come together in mourning following the tragic passing of Superstar Billy Graham.

Graham was hospitalized back in January with a number of health concerns, and his condition continued to worsen in the following months. Last week, his wife Valerie was told to prepare for the worst, and he had been placed on life support prior to his passing.

Superstar Billy Graham was a huge star in the 1970s and into the 1980s thanks to his imposing figure. Graham has openly spoken about how steroids helped him with his physique along the way. In April 1977, Graham ended Bruno Sammartino’s long title reign to become the WWWF Champion before he lost the title to Bob Backlund in February 1978.

Though his relationship with WWE and the wrestling business eventually fell apart, he was inducted into the company’s Hall of Fame by Triple H as part of the class of 2004.

News of Graham’s passing was mentioned during AEW Dynamite, with Excalibur sending condolences to Graham’s friends and family after news broke that the star had died. And now WWE along with many other wrestling stars such as Ric Flair and Paul Heyman have paid their own tribute to the man with the power, too sweet to be sour, Billy Graham.
