Michael Gossett, best known professionally as Mike Graham, the son of late Championship Wrestling from Florida promoter Eddie Graham, passed away today at the age of 62. He was in Daytona, Florida for Bike Week with his wife andwas found dead by his wife.
Graham was trained by Hiro Matsuda, Boris Malenko and his father in the early 1970s and had a long run as a babyface in the Florida territory. He won just about every championship there was in the old Florida territory and had several stints as the AWA Light Heavyweight champion. Graham ended his in ring career in 1990 and worked on and off as a road agent, producer and trainer for WCW until the company folded in 2001.
Graham appeared occasionally on legends events promoted by WrestleReunion and other promotions. He also appeared on several of the early Legends of Wrestling roundtable discussion shows produced by WWE’s 24/7 Video on Demand channel.
Our condolences to the family, friends and fans of Mr. Graham.
