  1. The Reflection of Perfection! Superstar Billy Graham! Could've been the Greatest Champion of all time, if only Vince SR. had given him the chance.

  2. Dude was the shit! They don't make em like the Superstar anymore. He should have been bigger then that rip off Hulk Hogan only if he had his true chance.

  3. The Superstar at the peak of his title reign. No other heel came close to the number of fans that Graham had. Simply the Best.

  4. Superstar was so superior to Hogan. McMahon "Senior" could have done so much more with Superstar. Backlund was a great tactician but horrible with the Mike. Superstar was hated and loved like no other.

  5. I wish pro wrestling could go back to these days and that of the late 80`s early 90`s….. much more entertaining than the shit they knock out on the tv nowadays!!!!!!!! the superstar had the main ingredients required in my book, he looked great, he could wrestle although he could of been much better especially against lesser opponents, and he could certainly work the mic, so in my opinion he`s one of the greatest of all time.

  6. Superstar Billy Graham had so much charisma, he made many other wrestlers look so bland and lame. Superstar generated excitement and he was the best on the mic in his day which generated tickets sells to his matches. The body, the ring attire was sensational. He certainly wasn't one of the best technical wrestlers going around but he could do his part in a match against a good technical wrestler. Superstar had good ring psychology and could tell a story in the ring. The name superstar fits well.

  7. As a kid, I remember when he took the belt from Bruno and it was simply inconceivable!!!  By today's standards it is hard to realize the impact he made back then.  Even the fact he took his name from the famous TV preacher seemed outrageous, along with all other aspects of his character.  This was for sure one of the most unique periods in pro wrestling history.

  8. Vince, jr. was the greatest straight man in the history of pro wrestling. His expressions when talking to the likes of Superstar, Captain Lou Albano ect were priceless.

  9. Its so obvious Hulk Hogan tried his best to emulate "The Superstar". He did, and fortunate for him pro wrestling's popularity was just beginning to take off.

  10. He doesn't have the charisma of John Cena but he does have a strong physique. Vince is no small guy and Billy stands tall over him. Which is such a shame that little freaks like Daniel Bryan and Rey Mysterio got the WWE championship. Wrestling is for large athletes!

  11. He was the champion. He was the greatest.
    He was the strongest.
    That was his belt.
    He had the proof, baby. LOL.

  12. listen to the crowd, thats a reaction. You can hear the cheers and boos, at a time that there were very clear lines between heel and face. That's how much of a prescence the Superstar had. He had great charisma. You can see alot of his influence in many other wrestlers, they should have kept the belt on the Superstar alot longer

  13. Nobody came close to Graham. Benoit and Bret Hart were short and didn't have the mic skill despite putting up 5-star matches. Cena's over-credited! Flair, Jesse, and Hogan were influenced. Macho Man imo nearly made the same cut, but jobbed to Hogan. Reigns nearly made him roll on his grave. Luger, luckily, didn't insult the belt. HBK and Bryan were short but had aligned attributes with The Superstar. Billy, Bruno, Lou Thesz, Pedro looked to decimate ANYONE who came in their way. Damn! And we got NOBODY who's coming close to their prestige!

  14. Vince Jr. wanted to turn Graham into a full babyface and keep the belt on him a little longer, but Vince Sr. overruled him because he promised Backlund the title in 1978. Graham knew how to work that MSG crowd. They loved to hate him and really wanted to see him lose.

  15. I wonder if they were considering a face turn. I watched a pre champ Graham promo and he was very belligerent (don't touch me, etc.). Here the ego is in place but he isn't insulting Vince or the fans.

  16. I'm still mesmerized by the presence of Superstar Billy Graham ! He had it all back in the day . He was so Unique during this era of wrestling . So much charisma , an original way ahead of his time. There will never ever be another SBG ! Today's wrestlers all look the same , Talk the same , wear ridiculous outfits . Billy stuck out like no other , he was different which makes him truly great !

  17. And Vince Sr. chose loyalty to Bob Backlund, most boring champ in history. They had hulkamania a decade earlier with Billy, Junior must have been sickened by his dad chosing Backlund
    yuck

  18. It gets said all the time, but when you see a clip like this you realize how bad todays mainstream wrestling is.

  19. 41 years ago in pro wrestling history and this brief pre match interview is more exciting than decades of action of what is being promoted in the current wwe era …….Super Star Billy Graham you are a pure Legend ..the reaction of the crowd is legit ! childhood memories reading the wrestling magazines ….

  20. Paved the way for Ric Flair, Hogan, Randy Savage, etc. The original bad guy that could win the crowd over. The WWWF would have been more interesting if he would have been champ longer.

  21. How many people ripped off this man? Hulk, Ventura, Flair, Austin Idol…the list just goes on and on. His mic skills were epic!

  22. The first Alpha wrestler who was ripped and huge. Veins popping muscles exploding. Others copied his style from Hulk to Poppa Pump.

  23. the one and only Superstar. one of my all time favorites. watched his entire reign live at MSG. was the best of times.

  24. Can you even imagine what the landscape of wrestling would have been if Vince McMahon Sr. had kept the belt on Superstar Billy Graham?

  25. Wish someone would come out with video of all his interviews, especially with McMahon as the straight man..You'd get my saw buck! The more outrageous he got, the more I would laugh!

  26. Billy was so far ahead of his time. A heal that is getting cheered. Hogan, Ventura and many others stole their persona from him. If he had kept the strap and officially went face he would have brought wrestling to the mainstream like in the 80’s. In my opinion one of the worst ideas and missed opportunity to make giant money was not doing this and giving Backlund the strap.

  27. SOUNDS LIKE THE G.O.A.T. ……
    THE MUHAMMAD ALI INFLUENCE
    DUSTY RHODES SPOKE THE SAME WAY…..BUT LET ME TELL YOU ALL YOUNGER GENERATION SOMETHING, THIS IS WHEN WRESTLING WAS TRUE PRO WRESTLING. THEY DON'T MAKE THEM LIKE THIS ANY MORE. GET WELL SOON SUPERSTAR BILLY GRAHAM, YOU ARE IN OUR PRAYERS.

  28. All VM had to do was turn SS face and he truly would have been a Super Star. He was extremely popular for a heel. The only other heels close to this popular was the NWO many years later.

  29. I can think of 2 people already who ran with his act hulk Hogan did for almost his whole career and dusty cut his promo just like his
