Superstar Billy Graham Trashes WWE in a New Interview

Nick Paglino

Slam Wrestling has an interview up with Superstar Billy Graham where the ring legend discusses a number of topics including why he decided to sell his WWE Hall of Fame ring and his current attitude towards Vince McMahon and the WWE. Graham had the following to say. "It was really the callousness and the coldness of Vince McMahon saying there would never be a real Hall of Fame. That drained the emotion and the price of having a Hall of Fame ring — which was a beautiful ring — especially when it was so cavalier...I was certainly offended by being released from the company, by letting my contract expire. Not to be too braggadocios, but I consider myself to be an icon because of my influence on guys like Hulk Hogan and Jesse Ventura. So just dropping me from the employment contract was really a slap in the face…The selling of the Hall of Fame ring is really more due to disappointment, as opposed to a vengeful act of animosity. And to be discarded in such a blunt way with the excuse of budget cuts — that doesn’t sit well with me."
