Daily Discussion: “Superstar” Billy Graham and the WWE Hall of Fame



Today’s topic: “Superstar” Billy Graham has requested to be removed from WWE’s hall of fame due to the company inducting the controversial Abdullah the Butcher. “For the WWE to induct into their Hall of Fame, Abdullah The Butcher, who has never wrestled one match under a WWE contract, is bordering on blasphemy. I am demanding that this company remove my name from their index of Hall of Fame wrestlers. It is a shameless organization to induct a bloodthirsty animal such as Abdullah The Butcher into their worthless and embarrassing Hall of Fame and I want the name of Superstar Billy Graham to be no part of it. The WWE and their Hall of Fame is disgustingly embarrassing, I want out,” stated Graham.

Should WWE honor the Superstar’s request?

    Read Graham’s book. He’s a carny through and through. Vacillates back and forth with no rhyme or reason. This is a guy who nearly got Pat Patterson–who helped him growin the business–thrown in jail by lying on the stand about him.

    Great draw, wag ahead of his time, but egomaniacal and too caught up in the God squad. Instead of being embarrassed by Abby, he should be embarrassed about his own behavior and the way he treats people. Too self-serving and I don’t think he’s necessarily mentally stable.

    All that said, leave him in the HOF just to piss him off.

    NO, I mean YEAH….but no.

    No in that they don’t have to worry about it given that they had his permission previously and thus it’s set

    Yeah in the sense that they should want to validate the requests of a man who gave them his heart and soul.

  3. JDBJJ says:

    Honor his request if he feels strongly enough to ask for it, but Graham should understand its a pointless issue to gripe over. Since there is no more AWA, NWA, WCW, UWF, etc, the WWE Hall of Fame acts as a glorified “pro wrestling Hall of Fame” to honor stars of the past who otherwise will not recieve recognition. Abdullah never worked for WWE, true. But in that sense, Graham should bicker over Nick Bockwinkel, The Shiek, Bullet Bob Armstrong, the Von Erichs (with the exception of Kerry), Stu Hart, there are plenty of people in the WWE HOF that haven’t been wrestlers for the company. It’s a ridiculous reason to bicker and it would be a shameful reason for Graham to lose his spot in the HOF.

    I feel Billy Graham is very ungrateful for the gifts of his talents, he lived life high on the hog and thinks Vince McMahon owes him a job for life.He is bitter about the way his life has turned out and blames Vince for everything maybe he needs to be taken out of the Hall of Fame a honor that will keep him name alive long after he is nt and just not be remembered for his gifts and talent that he shared with us all over the years

  5. I’m sorry but who does the Superstar think that he is.To complain that Abdullah the Butcher , should not be placed in the WWE hall of fame? I mean lets get real here. Abdullah the butcher, just like you Superstar, has left a mark in the sport and the business of professional wrestling/ or Puroresu. He like you have wrestled against many of the all time greats. He was a great draw , like yourself & a living legend. The problem that you have , which is has no leg to stand on ( no pun intended) is that he never wrestled for the WWE/WWF/WWWF. But he did wrestle hall of famers, Andre The Giant, Gorilla Monsoon, Bret Hart, Hulk, Hogan, Ric Flair, Terry Funk, Mick Folley, Arn anderson, Barry Windham, Stan Hansen, & Antonio Inoki. He is a well decorated champion and wrestling star in the NWA affiliates in Canada, Japan, the West Indies & the US. & being that the WWE was a member of the former NWA organization & brought companies such as world class/ USWA/ Stampeed/ WCW and Abdullah has worked there. It gives the WWE the right to have him there. So what’s next for the superstar to gripe about? Will it the celebrities entering as well. Or japanese wrestlers going in, such as Chono and the Great Muta and Tatsumi Fujinami, How about Stan Hansen or The Koloffs and the original tiger Mask? or even the late Giant Baba? Please get a grip man, the WWE can place anyone they want into the hall of fame .and just know that, he earned it, without burning a bridge. He did it with a fork.
