21. Superstar Billy Graham

With his bleached-blond hair, colorful ring attire, sculpted physique and gift of gab, the charismatic Graham is among the most influential figures in wrestling. Years before Hulkamania exploded, Graham was a true superstar at the box office in a number of promotions, including the WWWF, where he consistently sold out Madison Square Graden during his 10-month run as champion in 1977 and 1978.
