As we reported last night here on eWn, “Superstar” Billy Graham passed away at the age of 79 after a series of health issues.
Many names from the wrestling world have now taken to social media to react to the news, including the likes of Jesse Ventura, Paul Heyman, Zelina Vega, Bully Ray, and others.
You can check out some of the tweets below:
There wouldn’t be a Jesse “The Body” Ventura without the in-ring success and trailblazing showmanship of Superstar Billy Graham. One of my proudest wrestling memories was having the honor of being inducted into the same WWE Hall of Fame class as Graham. Rest In Power Superstar.

Before Billy Graham, performers in WWWF / WWF/ WWE were known as professional wrestlers. After Billy Graham left his mark, Vincent Kennedy McMahon decided everyone would be a WWE Superstar. A most heartfelt RIP to the man of the hour, the man with the power, too sweet to be sour! pic.twitter.com/bwL6UQ3c3h

Quite possibly the biggest game-changer of all time. Because of Billy Graham, we got Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair, not to mention countless others who made fortunes borrowing from this man. Say his name and remember him.

This is one hits me hard as Wrestling Superstar Billy Graham has passed on to paradise at age of 79. He has been so kind and supportive of the work I do with students. My prayers are for God’s comfort to his wife, family and all who loved him. He visited me when I lived in… pic.twitter.com/DfKKjrdkc5
