WWE Hall of Famer “Superstar” Billy Graham has never been one to bite his tongue, especially recently. Prior to WrestleMania 35, he said the fact Kofi Kingston was challenging for the WWE Champion was a “joke”, and then publically advised the New Day star to start “doing steroids“.
The controversial former world champion recently sat down with Hannibal TV to discuss a wide range of topics, including the historic Winner-Takes-All main event of WrestleMania 35 between Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair and “The Man” Becky Lynch.
Graham said that the women would not have main evented WWE’s biggest show of the year if it wasn’t for the WWE Network, as Ronda Rousey wouldn’t have sold “one ticket”, despite being “pushed more than any other human being”:
“I don’t believe that it would have been like the old school pay-per-views that did tremendous business, because Ronda Rousey was not really over, she was pushed more than any other human being, female or male, in the history of the WWE. She had the biggest push of anyone in the history of that company, and still was not over. You cannot convince me that she would have sold one ticket.”
The outspoken Hall of Famer also was clearly not a big fan of the match itself, and had the following to say on the bout:
“It was a horrible match. I saw highlights of it, but it was a perfect opportunity for Vince to use those three girls…because of Rousey’s UFC past, even though she got her ass kicked in those last two fights.” Graham went on to discuss Rousey’s history with the UFC, including her multiple losses and her reaction.”
Graham continued his rant on Ronda Rousey, and did not hold back when speaking about the UFC Hall of Famer:
“You cannot tell me she’s the greatest UFC female fighter ever, when you lose your last two by such horrific short-time knockouts. And then you cry in the ring like a child…she sat there and wept in the ring like a baby, and then said that she was going to commit suicide over the loss. This woman is such a mental case, that I don’t know how she made it through an entire 12 months, from the first Mania to the next.”
I think Billy Graham will struggle to find people who support his points here…
