Mike Graham passes away at age 61


Mike Graham, the son of Championship Wrestling from Florida promoter Eddie Graham, passed away yesterday at the age of 61. He was found dead by his wife with a gunshot wound to his head in an apparent suicide.

Graham worked for WCW for over a decade both as a wrestler and as a road agent and also worked with WWE for the WWE Classics shows, often participating in round table discussions.

In 2008 he was at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony and accepted his late father’s induction. Upon learning about his death, WWE issued a statement on its website saying, “WWE is saddened to learn of the passing of Mike Graham, 61, son of legendary promoter Eddie Graham. While never under contract with WWE, he was part of our extended family. The sports-entertainment world lost a beloved member today. WWE extends its sincerest condolences to his family and friends.”
