It seems Graham isn't a fans of Kofi



What's the story?
WWE Hall of Famer Booker T recently talked about Kofi Kingston's triumphant win at WrestleMania, on his show "The Hall of Fame".

Booker T went off on fellow WWE Hall of Famer Billy Graham for advising Kingston to start doing steroids.

In case you didn't know. . .
After Kofi's win at WrestleMania, Graham made a post on his Facebook page, advising Kofi to use steroids to gain 50 pounds of muscle mass. Previously, he had made another post stating that "Kofi going to WrestleMania is a joke".

Graham added that Vince fancies muscled-up athletes, and he would love to see Kofi's transformation. The Hall of Famer also said that Kingston needs to collect all of his old tapes and start watching them in order "to become an entertainer".

The heart of the matter

Booker T wasn't too thrilled with Graham's comments on Kofi. He said that Graham and old guys like him need to undertsand that this is a completely different era from what it used to be decades ago.

These old guys need to wake up and realize that their era is over. To bring steroids into a conversation as far as what a man needs 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?
The former WCW Champion stated that numerous wrestlers have died in the past due to steroids usage, and WWE is doing everything in their power to stop it from happening again.

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 needs to get on drugs to become successful … HE IS SUCCESSFUL!! HE’S THE WWE CHAMPION!!
What's next?
Billy Graham was one of the biggest Superstars of his generation. It's incredibly sad to see him resort to these kind of cheap tactics to garner attention. Kofi Kingston has given his blood, sweat, and tears to this business for the last 11 years, and he deserves his current title reign.
A good listen from Booker on Kofi's win and Billy Graham's insistence that Kofi needs steroids.

Thoughts on that, by the way? Does Kofi really need to be bigger in your opinion? Steroids or not?

I agree. Which is why I poised the question like that. Billy clearly thinks he looks small, but he jumped straight to steroids.

Chill, we don't need to jump straight there. That said, you think it still matters if the WWE Champion is small? Should Kofi hit the gym?

I mean it wouldn't hurt him at all if he got bigger, but I don't think it's a necessity when there's not a lot of huge guys in WWE at the moment anyway, plus it's not unbelievable for him to beat current top guys like Bryan and Rollins despite his size, it's not like he's exceptionally small or something. Graham would have a heart attack if he watched NXT :TI:

Funniest part is thinking steroids is the only way to bulk up....and also Billy Graham advocating something that was the entire reason for his health problems and skeletal structure problems.
