WWE Star Billy Graham Dies At 79
World Wrestling Entertainment star Billy Graham died at 79 after battling several health problems.
According to a GoFundMe website set up to assist Graham and his family, Graham has been in the Intensive Care Unit for several weeks.
TMZ reports that he died Wednesday after being taken off life support with his wife and daughter by his side.
Graham was admitted to the hospital in January after developing an infection in his ears that had gone on to his ear bones and skull.
He was also said to suffer from acute kidney failure, congestive heart failure, diabetes, and hearing loss.
Graham’s wife, Valerie, had given an update on her husband’s health on his official Facebook page on May 15, admitting that she had first refused to remove him from life support.
Valerie said, “Please urgent prayers are needed for my husband. The doctors wanted to remove him from life support tonight. I refused.
“He’s a fighter and his will is strong even if his body isn’t. God is our hope.”
