"Superstar" Graham at one point was the biggest star in the New York area and became the first heel WWF Champion in the history of the company. Also names like Hulk Hogan, Jesse Ventura, and various others have named Graham as an inspiration and a big reason for them breaking into the wrestling business. Following a disagreement with Vince Sr. Billy would leave the territory and in a way would never truly be the same as he once was. Following suit with many of his fellow legends the "Superstar" reconciled with the company a few years back and is on great terms.
Another legend that has had a bumpy road with the WWE over the years especially in recent years is Mick Foley. Mick had in the past been a huge advocate of the GiveDivasaChanceMovement and was very critical of WWE creative in the past to the point where he actually destroyed his TV due to a WWE booking decision. However, in recent Mick has really calmed down on his negative view of the company and honestly it has been better for us all, because that has lead to a Mick Foley return to the company and I think that much like Graham, Mick has never been on better terms with WWE.
Happy Birthday to Billy Graham who turns 73 years old
Happy Birthday to Mick Foley who turns 52 years old
