– “Superstar” Billy Graham is — or was — quite upset with Karl Lauer, the Executive Vice President of the Cauliflower Alley Club. Last weekend, Graham sent a threatening e-mail to Lauer, likening him to Adolf Hiter and saying he should get “666” tattooed on his head. Graham forwarded the e-mail to a number of people with one person receiving it sending it to me. The WWE Hall of Famer was upset over teaching a seminar at the annual convention in Las Vegas a few weeks ago and not being paid. Apparently, he was going to send his payoff for the event to a nine-year-old girl by the name of Shiloh. However, it should be noted that the Cauliflower Alley Club is a non-profit organization.
Here is his e-mail in its entirety:
Please return Paulette Nordmann from the Bronx, NY her income tax refund check of $200, that she wanted to donate to Shiloh. Ms Nordmann has set an example that you would have been wise to follow. She gave all she had to help this handicap child. But you, a filthy rich cattle baron has not given that child a penny. I know people with almost nothing that have given something, to this handicap child. I would urge you, you worthless piece of dung to go out and hang yourself and then send us all a postcard from Hell. You are a pure dictator and your middle name should be Hitler. You walk up to me and tell me, that I have a seminar at 10 AM the next morning. You do not ask, you tell, you order, you demand. You are nothing more than a mark whore for this business and the numbers 666 should be tattooed across your forehead. I have been told by more than one person that you were the worst pay off promoter in this disgusting business. You stole and robbed money from wrestlers as a wanta be promoter. You promoted a silent auction? It was so silent that know one even knew about it. You comped me a fold up table worth $150? So what, you should have, would you have the nerve to have charged Hulk or Ventura for a gimmick table? Or, charge them $100 for a plate of mashed potatoes? Or charged them $32 per night in a white trash hotel? Dont you get it? You comp people that will bring marks and add prestige to your event. But you are whining you multi millionaire fool who did not give a handicap child a penny? Fuck you, you worthless pile of dung. I hate your guts Mr. Hitler. The CAC board of good and decent folks need to vote you out, burn in Hell please.
SUPERSTAR BILLY GRAHAM
As noted earlier, Shiloh (Pepin) is the nine-year old “Mermaid Girl” that was featured on a Discovery Channel special last year. She’s a huge WWE fan who Graham has been raising money for in recent months. He tried to convince Vince McMahon to bring her in as celebrity at this year’s WrestleMania, but he refused.
Graham’s official MySpace account (myspace.com/superstargraham) notes a statement from the official website of the Millennium Wrestling Federation, BostonWrestling.com, thanking him for raising enough money for Shiloh and her family to attend the Backlash pay-per-view in Providence, Rhode Island last week. The statement notes that Shiloh was personally presented with a WWE Women’s Championship by John Cena himself.
It would appear that Lauer gave in to Graham’s request as he is also credited with helping raise money for the Pepin family to attend Backlash.
