Fighting for life, WWE Hall of Famer ‘Superstar’ Billy Graham needs money for treatment

The wife of WWE Hall of Famer “Superstar” Billy Graham recently provided another update on his health, and it’s worrying.

Valerie Coleman began providing updates via her husband’s Facebook page last month after he was reportedly “coded” and brought back to life by doctors during a hospital visit.

The days that followed were filled with worrying updates, but Graham made some improvements, and Valerie said she was eventually moved from the hospital to rehab. However, this did not last long, she said in the most recent update.

“Billie was briefly released from the Mayo (Clinic), placed in a rehab center, and then sent back to Mayo with heart problems,” she wrote. “I’m so worried about Champion. He’s lost almost 50 pounds in a little over three weeks. Thank you and God bless!

Post With a GoFundMe link tHay posted to help pay for her care.

Graham, whose real name is Eldridge Wayne Coleman, has a long history of medical issues.

He said last June that he would have to have “some toes” partially amputated because he was dealing with “some infections,” and he reportedly had a liver transplant in 2002.

During his days in the wrestling ring, Graham was known for his bigoted personality, and was an inspiration to many big-name wrestlersโ€”people like Hulk Hogan and Ric Flairโ€”who followed in his footsteps.

He was a three-time heavyweight champion in major wrestling organizations, and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2004.
