[Misc News] After he was informed he was being taken off the payroll, Superstar Billy Graham, perhaps in anger against the company, shared his release letter from WWE’s Joe Bogdan (Legal Affairs) to a select group of people. The letter, dated 4/17, stated that effective 7/19 Graham was being let go from his legends contract worth $500 a week. The letter specified that he is forever precluded from “using any names, likeness, costumes, props, gimmicks, gestures, routines, themes, personalities, or caricatures, which refer or relate to, or which are confusingly similar to those [he] used while bound by the contract.” Basically WWE are claiming the rights to Superstar Billy Graham. The letter also said he couldn’t perform in any wrestling matches, which having been retired since 1987, at 65-years-old, was laughable, until his current contract expires. Graham says he used the name long before his WWE days, and took his moniker from the famous evangelist Billy Graham, and the song Jesus Christ Superstar. . [reported by Mike Aldren]
