Superstar Billy Graham already hospitalized now has COVID-19

Superstar Billy Graham who has been in the Mayo Clinic hospital for weeks, has recently contracted COVID-19.

The 79-year-old Graham, whose real name is Wayne Coleman, is a three-time former world champion professional wrestler. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2004.

Coleman is currently suffering from congestive heart failure, diabetes, significant weight loss and infections to both his ears and skull.

The latest COVID-19 update from his wife via his Facebook page. She noted that both Graham and his wife Valerie recently picked up the virus. Because of this, his wife cannot visit him and cannot work. The following was posted:

“The latest update from Wayne’s wife Valerie is rather dire. In addition to Wayne’s ongoing medical issues, resulting in them spending 200 dollars a day out of pocket for his care at a rehab hospital, they both now also have covid!

“Friends, Wayne (Billy) has had a very rough run lately,” reads a message on the GoFundMe page. “He coded, but God decided that it was not his time to go, and brought him back to us! He is going on over three weeks in the Mayo hospital ICU, checked into a rehab center, and is now back at the Mayo. He is dealing with a myriad of very serious health issues: a major infection in his ears and skull that may take six months of intravenous IVs, congestive heart failure, diabetes, hearing loss as a result of the infection, and the list goes on.”

“He is facing a long period of rehab, and his insurance will only pay a portion of this. He is facing at least two months in a skilled nursing facility, once he is stabilized and released from the Mayo hospital. Wayne has lost 45 pounds in the last three weeks.”

“Wayne’s wife Valerie is doing the best she can to work full time, while also doing all she can for her husband,” the GoFundMe continued. “They are facing mounting long term medical related bills. Any amount would be greatly appreciated. God Bless you and thank you. Prayers would be much appreciated!”
