-Arda Ocal (@arda_ocal) of theScore Television Network and Layfield Report (http://www.layfieldreport.com) spoke with "Superstar" Billy Graham in his first interview since overcoming double pneumonia. Highlights:
-How his health is and how close he came to death:
“I was just released from the world famous Mayo Clinic Hospital just 2 days ago actually last Thursday from the flu which turned into double pneumonia, which is fluid in each lung and then congestive heart failure. I feel very good, excellent really. I’m back painting. (Doctors) told me about another 10 more days before I can get back in the gym”
-How often he works out.
-How he keeps busy with his painting.
-If his health scare affected his perspective on life. Also looking back on his life if it has changed any animosities he may of had in the past.
-Not actually having heat with CM Punk and Chris Jericho, and how he feels about his comments after going through his health scare:
“I know that Chris Jericho has never really cared for me, really basically from day one, but anyway I was very shocked (by his comments), I was just trying to make a observation of how things have evolved in professional wrestling with body types. I meant no harm or disrespect to CM Punk whatsoever because he’s a hard worker and dedicated.”
-Did CM Punk contact him directly about the statements?
