Billy Graham hospitalized with Pneumonia:
WWE Hall of Famer “Superstar” Billy Graham was admitted to hospital yesterday suffering from pneumonia in both lungs, and is now showing signs of heart failure.
Double pneumonia occurs when tissues inside both lungs fill with fluid and become infected. The symptoms of fever, chills, trouble breathing, chest pain, vomiting and chills can be particularly dangerous for someone like Graham 69, who is suffering from other illnesses. Graham has been sick with influenza symptoms for the past few weeks.
The wrestling legend also suffers from diabetes, is Hepatitis C positive and has cirrhosis of his second liver, after it was transplanted some years ago.
Our thoughts are with Superstar and his family.
Mick Foley‘s Hall of Fame video:
WWE have uploaded a promo video for Mick Foley’s WWE Hall of Fame announcement on Youtube:
It will begin airing on TV possibly as soon as SmackDown.
“I love Steve very much and respect him. I believed in him before anybody else,” says Roberts, who was infamously on the losing end when Austin coined the 3:16 catchphrase.
“He had been given a raw deal several times in other organizations but I was the first person to step up and say, ‘This is the guy!’ I hate when I’m right.”
Here are some other highlights from the interview…
A possible return to the ring:
“Never say never. But that is not what I’m here for. What my dream may have been in the beginning pales in comparison to the dream that has become. I want to excel in what I’m doing and slay the beast that used to control my life. If Jake Roberts can do these things, bring myself back to health, conquer my demons, then I will become something much bigger than Jake Roberts ever was. That would be an example that you can win the war that you are battling.”
On the Jerry Lawler whiskey segment:
“There’s a lot of things that some might choose to hold bad feelings about. I choose not to think about negative moments and certainly not waste time thinking about them. I wish Jerry the best. I have much more important things to deal with than the past,like my future.”
Working in Mexico for AAA:
“Dangerous and exciting. Thank God I had a bodyguard named Sherri Martel. I actually felt sorry for the people she attacked. I really miss her. Seriously, very confusing to work there.”
Rey Mysterio back in action:
WWE star Rey Mysterio is back on the house show schedule after taking some time off to deal with an undisclosed personal issue.
Rey’s longtime friend Konnan went in to more detail on his MLW radio show:
“Somebody seems to think that Rey was suspended for the wellness policy. Absolutely incorrect. He is dealing with a family situation right now and he does have permission to be out. They know what’s going on and he will be back soon. He is not injured. He doesn’t have any drug issues – and I’m not covering for him because he’s my boy… but he’s cool, he’ll back soon.”
Mysterio is booked at tonight’s WWE show from the Staples Centerin Los Angeles, CA.
