WWE Legend “Superstar” Billy Graham is on life support as he is battling “a myriad of very serious medical conditions.”
One of the greatest professional wrestlers of the 1970s and 1980s, Graham paved the way for the sport’s future stars.
The 79-year-old, whose real name is Eldridge Wayne Coleman, has been in the hospital for nearly five months and was recently placed on life support.
The American grappler’s wife, Valerie, revealed that doctors recommended pulling the plug, but she declined.
She also asked his fans for “urgent prayers” over his deteriorating health.
Valerie posted the following update: “Please urgent prayers for my husband.”
“Doctors wanted to remove his life support tonight. I declined.”
“He’s a fighter and his will is strong, even if his body isn’t. God is our hope.”
Graham has been battling several health issues, including an ear infection that has spread to his skull and COVID-19.
The former heavyweight has been in intensive care for many weeks and Valerie recently revealed that the situation has become “terribly difficult”.
She previously added that the WWE Hall of Famer went completely deaf and lost five stone.
Graham started out as a bodybuilder in the 1960s, training under Hollywood megastar Arnold Schwarzenegger, with whom he appeared on the covers of various magazines.
The NWA greats stood out during Territory Days, mentoring various legends such as Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair and Jesse “The Body” Ventura.
