David Allen Meltzer, a credible American journalist and sports historian also shared a heartwarming note on Billy Graham death and wrote-
‘Graham’s impact extended beyond “The Nature Boy.” My entire life, and tonnes of others from Flair to Hogan to Jesse you wouldn’t know that you would change because of him’
‘When professional wrestling was still viewed as a serious sport, “Superstar” Billy Graham was an eccentric, colorful character. One of the first wrestlers to use steroids heavily was Graham, a decision he subsequently openly regretted since the years of steroid addiction had a negative impact on his health. Additionally, he had pushed for former WWE Champions to use it responsibly. In 2004, Graham was admitted into the WWE Hall of Fame.’
