Last week, “Superstar” Billy Graham had some comments for CM Punk on his Facebook page regarding Punk’s comments during a promo on RAW in which Punk referenced Bruno Sammartino.
Chris Jericho then chimed in on Twitter & told Graham to shut up and stop being a mark.
Graham has since responded and issued a statement to Jericho.
“Mr. Jericho Sir,
I won’t say Dear Chris because I know you hate me with the utter most hatred.
Addressing your quote about me, “And stop being such a mark” The truth is, I believe everyone is a mark for someone or something at some point in their life. For instance, I am a total mark for Bob Dylan. The man has written over 600 songs and I saw him in person here in Phoenix last year. He had never sounded better at the age of 70! Fans are marks for the upcoming Super Bowl, The World Series, The NBA championship playoffs, and Nascar to name just a few examples.
In pro wrestling I am a mark for Triple H and proud to admit it for numerous reasons. He had a great hard earned physique, he had enormous charisma and an in ring presence that was unmatched. I remember sitting on the front row at a PPV here in Phoenix and his opponent gave him a sling shot into the post. I had my eyes fixed on him because I was curious about how he was going to do the blade job. As soon as his head hit the post he started bleeding, I did not see him cut himself and he was right in front of me, just a few feet away! Back in the locker room we were sitting next to each other and I asked him, “Brother, how did you cut your head, as you started bleeding immediately?” He said, ” Superstar, I cut my head right before it hit the post.” I marked out at that very moment, what a pro that man was and still could be if he wanted to be.
In closing I hope that answers your statement to me regarding “being such a mark.” And your quote to me about “Shutting the hell up” I won’t even address that because what I do best is CUT PROMOS!!!
Superstar Billy Graham”
