WWE Legend says Kofi Kingston in WrestleMania title match is a ‘total joke’, also knocks Dana Warrior

WWE Hall of Famer ‘Superstar’ Billy Graham has had the following to say on his Facebook page after Kofi Kingston finally earned his WWE Championship match at Mania last night:

“Is The WWE Serious???

I turned on my computer today and went to the wrestling news sites and what did I see? Kofi Kingston vs Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship at mania. Talk is Vince is going to put that WWE belt on Kofi Kingston…. S—…..You…not me, will have a 145 pound WWE champion. This must of been an idea by the new Sr. Creative Lady Dana Warrior? Meltzer says she has been promoted to an extremely high position on the creative team and attends meeting that only Vince, H and Step are in…damn…how did she get so smart???

My friend Hannibal has been monitoring the Monday Night RAW steady decline in TV viewership. Well Hannibal, it dropped again last night in Boston, Monday, March 25th. Steady decline in TV viewership. I predict that this years mania will be so bad that next year, 2020, will not come close to selling out. The thrill is gone. Is anyone out there really excited to see these 2 light weights wrestle for the WWE Championship ? Oh, one more thing. I would love to see Kofi at 145 pounds put his newly won WWE belt on the line against Brock Lesner, great logistics, 1 man being out-weighed by a good 135 pounds, a total joke this thing is. – S.B.G.”

Erm, yeah.

    You’re right dude, we should totally have Lesner vs. Reigns 5, because they TOTALLY “look the part” of a champion (IE tall musclebound jerkwad that can’t wrestle worth a damn).

    You know, by your neanderthal logic, there are a LOT of former champions who “never should have been champion”. I’ll name just a few:

    Buddy Rogers, Bruno Sammartino, Pedro Morales, Bob Backlund. Randy Savage, Ric Flair (6’1″, hardly ripped), Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Steve Austin (“only” 6’2″ and hardly ripped), Mick Foley, Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho, Eddie Guerrero (ripped, but 5’8″), Chris Benoit, Edge (tall but lanky), Rob Van Dam, Rey Mysterio, Jeff Hardy, CM Punk, The Miz, Dolph Ziggler, Christian, Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens (6’0″ and fat), Dan Ambrose (tall but lanky), and AJ Styles.

    And hell, for that matter, John Cena, while muscle heavy, is only 6’1″ himself.

    So I’ve just listed a vast majority of the various World Champs WWF/E has ever had. Most of them have actually been UNDER 6’3″, and UNDER 250 lbs. For THAT matter, most of the champions the NWA and AWA had for decades, also likely fit that bill. And most of the champions that TNA, ROH, New Japan, AAA, CMLL, Lucha Underground, etc. have had. So by former roid freak Billy Graham’s logic, and apparently yours, the VAST majority of World or equivalent status champions in pro wrestling history, weren’t actually believable or fit to be Champion.

    And do you want to know why he and you think that? Well, in his case, it’s because HE was that big. Most of his contemporaries of the 70s, outside of Andre the Giant, were “small” compared to him. So already he’s stating that during HIS era, he was one of the only ones “fit” to be Champion. And you? Well, when Vince Jr. took over in the 80s, that’s mostly what HE pushed, via Hogan, and later the likes of Ultimate Warrior, Yokozuna, Diesel, etc., was that a World Champ, HAD to be a GIANT. “Larger Than Life”, a term (at least in wrestling) that he coined, as a cute euphemism for being tall and, typically, very muscular. But it’s funny, because Randy Savage, Ric Flair, Bret Hart, even Steve Austin, hell even Kurt Angle? Those are some of the biggest names in wrestling history. And VINCE, even though he clearly prefers big buff hunks like you do, chose to put the strap on them. I guess you know better than him then, eh? Hell, Austin wasn’t short, but by body builder standards, he was “flabby”. Yet Vince has the announcers constantly refer to him as “The Biggest Star in WWE history”.

    Just saying…unless you’re trolling, you may want to seriously reconsider how you seem to view pro wrestling. It’s a SHOW, and yes, smaller, more athletic wrestlers, could beat big body builder types. If you don’t get that, you don’t get wrestling, and probably shouldn’t be watching.

    Well neither of these two guys look like main eventers, much less HEAVYWEIGHT champions, is funny how some people say “but they are such good athletes” yeah…but it is a FAKE SHOW and they have to look the part they are playing, so this “crazy old man” is telling the truth, they don’t belong in the main event, not to mention Kofi is a zero in terms of a Character, he’s just the flavor of the month, no one gave a damn about him a few weeks ago, LOL, and don’t forget just because he’s black some people will pretend to like him, just to be polliticaly correct, well this is the wwe of today and it’s sad, seriously this is your main event of Wrestlemania? LOL, pathetic

  • The Random Reader

    I agree with Billy Graham

  • The Random Reader


  • The Random Reader

    i’d rather see the Men main eventing, they are better

  • Rinn13

    If anything, Kofi vs. Bryan should be the main event. THAT is the hottest angle going on in WWE right now, now Rousey’s BS.

  • Soulshroude

    Even if that cover photo makes Kofi look like a “smug rapper”, doesn’t mean he doesn’t deserve what he’s strived for since day one. Give him and a few other “light weights” a break, obviously the WWe officials have gone a different route and in that context, not only heavy weight can gain that prestige. Though through contradiction it is the WWE Heavyweight Championship, is it not?

  • Kristopher Robinson

    That’s what I was thinking lol He must have been infuriated when Rey Mysterio was WHC hahaha

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Well I do it different and I know those women are going to put on a show. But lot of wrestling fans don’t like change.

  • BB

    I came on here to make the exact same comment, hahaha.

  • Darrin Tyler

    Weight? Sorry Billy I guess even you forgot that its scripted.

  • Will Henderson

    me too, just another episode of “Superstar” Billy Graham is a bitter old man.

  • Will Henderson

    when i saw the title, i just knew it would be “Superstar” Billy Graham that would be ranting. that guy’s just a bitter old man

  • ClauDee

    To be fair – I don’t like the Women Main Event either…

  • I knew who it was before I even clicked on the story.

  • jamesjones

    i guess were gonna ignore that kofi is bigger than daniel

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I don’t listen to bitter people and trust me Billy Graham is very bitter. He probably don’t even like the idea of Women Main Eventing Wrestlemania 35.

  • CC

    Billy Graham is and always has been an idiotic fossil with no idea what wrestling is these days.
    As much as people mock Vince for his love of big sweaty men, at least he has conceded and allowed smaller guys to shine over the years.
    People like Graham though live in the past that the only credible champions are big guys.

  • Worse than him being little is his being ethnic, don’t nobody want a hood WWE champion.

  • oppa

    He is the most negative person in wrestling history. Probably feels like Kofi doesn’t deserve it because he’s Black either. He took all of those steroids, threw Vince under the bus when Benoit died, claims he has demanded to be taken out of the Hall of Fame and now wants a super heavyweight to be in the match instead of two of the best wrestlers. His thoughts mean nothing at this point. If he hates things as much as he claims he does, just quit commenting on them.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    So out of touch with the business, that it’s not even funny. What does weight have to do with 2 very talented athletes. Guys that could easily out perform any wrestle from his generation or any generation for that matter. And I really dont think that Dana is that “promoted”, so quickly. It’s amazing that guys like him, are still high on muscle bound guys being champion.
