While most of the wrestling community was celebrating Kofi Kingston’s historic WWE Championship win, Superstar Billy Graham was throwing shade — and Booker T isn’t happy about it.
In case you’ve missed it, Graham has had a lot to say about Kofi’s size in the buildup to WrestleMania. Most recently urging Kofi to start taking steroids now that he’s WWE Champion.
“I urge you to start doing some steroids and add about 50 pounds of solid muscle to your championship body,” Graham wrote on Facebook over the weekend. “Vince wont care, honestly. Actually he would be quite pleased with the muscular transformation.”
These comments drew criticism from Booker T on the latest episode of his show “The Hall of Fame.”
“These old guys need to wake up and realize that their era is over,” said Booker T. “To bring steroids into a conversation as far as what a man need to do to get to the top in the wrestling business, man … there’s more to life than the wrestling business. What about your health?”
Adding, “They got a Wellness Policy now. They’re trying to keep these guys alive. We lost so many soldiers along the way because of steroids and drugs. And for this man to say another man need to get on drugs to become successful … HE IS SUCCESSFUL!! HE’S THE WWE CHAMPION!!”
Booker then lists Billy Graham’s medical problems and says the wrestling legends needs to wake up.
“The Hall of Fame with Booker T and Brad Gilmore” airs Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday on ESPN 97.5 in Houston, TX and on HallofFamePodcast.com.
