Arda Ocal of theScore Television Network and Layfield Report 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?
