WWE Hall of Famer “Superstar” Billy Graham was one of the biggest stars during his golden days in the industry. His unforgettable rivalry with Bruno Sammartino for the WWWF Heavyweight Championship remains a highlight in wrestling history. However, fans continue to worry about his well-being for a long time now.

As previously reported, Billy Graham’s wife instructed the admin of his Facebook page that he had a very bad infection in his ears that spread to the bones in his ears. Fans simply feared the worst for him after that.

Billy Graham has faced numerous health challenges over the years, resulting in multiple hospitalizations. However, despite these setbacks, his fans have never wavered in their support for him.

He was also dealing with tough physical issues. Sadly, the situation for Graham has only worsened. Graham would then provide an update on his condition himself couple of weeks ago.


As revealed by the admin on his official Facebook page, Billy Graham has been in and out of hospitals for four months and lost 80 pounds so far. It was also added that he is now because of his Osteomyelitis infection.

It has now been four months since Wayne has not been home, he has either been at the rehab center, or in the hospital.
Due to ongoing issues from his lack of appetite he has now lost 80 pounds and subsequently continues to struggle with extreme weakness. The Osteomyelitis infection in his ears,skull and sinus cavity remains his greatest challenge. He’s on strong IV antibiotics 3 times a day to treat this and the infectious disease doctor says he will need to be on them for at least 3 more months. As a result of this infection, he is currently completely deaf. We’re praying this is temporary, and will resolve as the infection is treated. He has intermittently also suffered with kidney issues, and been on dialysis. This in addition to Billy having heart and lung concerns, sores from being in bed for 4 months and depression.
The financial situation has become dire as Insurance is only covering part of this treatment. His rehab copay care is costing $200 a day, out of pocket. Unfortunately, both Wayne, and his wife Valerie, contracted Covid 2 months ago. And unfortunately In Valerie’s case she continues to struggle with what is now Long Covid and as a result she has had to extend her LOA, consequently this has left them with absolutely no income. The emotional strain of not being able to visit her husband, due to Covid, along with the deep concern over his health as well as their financial difficulties is heart-wrenching and very stressful for them both.
Anyone who could find it in their heart to donate any amount, would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you so much. Please help, and pray for the superstar to recover, and get back home where he belongs. God Bless you all, and thank you. He is in the fight of his life.

We are sending our support to Billy Graham and his loved ones during this difficult time. We are hoping that the Superstar will kick out of the prolonged illness soon and will keep you updated on his health status.
