Just in time for the book tour…

Superstar Billy Graham will be attending Summerslam in Phoenix Arizona, and it will be his first WWF/E show in 14 years.

They will be doing a Confidential story on Grahamm which might be a two parter scheduled for airing in September.

It will be Graham’s first meeting with Vince McMahon since they both appeared on Donahue in 1992, and had a falling out.

Geez.....

I'm thinking WWE should take advantage of this by starting a whole new kind of reality show. If you want, call it `Vince McMahon's Kiss My Ass Club: The Series''

How it works is: a host (perhaps Michael Cole) goes to the homes of disgruntled former WWE guys like Piper, Graham, Sable, LOD, etc. Ask each of them what it would take to metaphorically kiss Vince's ass by going back to the federation. There -- your first season is already filmed.

For the second season, go for guys like Shane Douglas, Terry Taylor, Bruno Sammartino, Nailz and .... Bret Hart.

I'm telling you; the show would do killer ratings!!!

He wrote an autobiography, made up with Vince, and now Simon & Shuster will put out the book and WWE will promote it.

Is he still in a wheelchair? Remember what happened to the last guy that showed up in a wheelchair after writing his autobiography?


Not to be morbid but I'm just sayin...

I could be wrong on this, as it was a while ago, but I believe he left because once he retired, they had nothing for Graham. Then he went on the Donahue show, buried Vince for being a steroid distributor, etc. and that was it.

There was an article written about it (biased obviously) on the inside front cover of WWF Magazine (with Hogan and the Warrior on the cover sometime in 91; how's THAT for a good memory) that actually broke kayfabe for the first time and essentially buried Graham and others.

He's no longer in a wheelchair because he had a successful liver transplant.

I have kind of a morbid interest in seeing what Graham looks like after all these years. He looked like an old man back in the late 80's, so lord knows how much more steroids has ravaged his body. Scott Steiner, this is your future.

Maybe Billy Graham came back because Scott Steiner owes him royalties for "borowing" his gimmick?

Just keep Graham out of the commentators' area and I'll be happy. I mentioned this before, but Graham was just awful doing the color at the 88 Summerslam. As long as he doesn't see this as a glorious 15 year anniversary return to the booth, I'll be fine with his return.



Molly, Stacy and Daffney all in WWE? I suddenly lost all my will to complain about anything regarding the WWE. Hope I don't lose my street cred for this.

TS, the greatest Wiener rated 6.1554 ever to live!! Oops, I mean 5.5...4.5?? Oh, dammit! I guess Notorious FAB was right.

I wonder if it's a good idea having him on the show. When he is announced and comes out, half the crowd will probably be dead silent thinking "who the hell is that" and the other half will be dead silent thinking "my God, he looks horrible."

Nah... if 'Slam is in Phoenix, enough people know him there, because I believe that's his old stomping grounds (To borrow a Gorilla-ism). And for the people watching on PPV, they'll probably figure he's just ``that preacher guy.''
