Today's Mailday: Superstar Billy Graham Leaf Originals Wrestling Autograph

Another autograph from Leaf Originals Wrestling set. Superstar Billy Graham was the pioneer of the cocky heel wrestler. He was pretty much the first "cool heel" so to speak and was the inspiration of other wrestling icons such as Jesse "The Body" Ventura and Hulk Hogan himself. Graham became WWWF champion in 1977 defeating Bruno Sammartino. His relationship with the WWE has always been rocky (I believe currently, he's on the outs with them) but he is a WWE Hall of Famer, and one of the biggest wrestling legends ever the grace the squared circle.
