- Hannibal Pro Wrestling sent along word that "Superstar" Billy Graham, who was hospitalized last week due to double pneumonia, is getting stronger and is no longer on continuous oxygen. He will likely be taken off of his intravenous antibiotics and diuretics (which help remove the fluid from around his heart cavity) in the next 24-48 hours. If he is released from the hospital and sent home at that point, he will remain on oral medications and ordered to rest.

Hard to believe that Bob Backlund wasn't previously in the #WWE Hall of Fame. A long overdue induction. Congrats, Mr. Backlund! #PWI #km
