"I'm the man of the hour," Superstar Billy Graham told his audiences, "the man with the power. Too sweet to be sour!" Despite years of devastating health issues (a long history of drug abuse led to a liver transplant in 2002), the man regarded as one of the most influential professional wrestlers of the past thirty years still flaunts the same optimism that made his interv ...more

Superstar Billy recounts his childhood and young adult life as a Christian pastor, then as a low-level grappler, to big time wrestling star; to drug abuse; anger; depression; comeback; retirement; hip replacement; liver transplant and, finally, return to grace.

Holy shit.

Preacher. Bodybuilder. Drug addict. WWF Champion. Quite a unique combination for the Superstar who was 20 years ahead of his time.

This book isn't usually included in the best insider wrestling books, but I really enjoyed it.
