Before committing suicide in Daytona Beach, Florida on Oct. 18 from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the forehead, Mike Graham went to Universal Studios Florida in Orlando, Florida, while TNA Wrestling was holding a live iMPACT! Wrestling show two months prior to request a job on their creative writing staff. He was instantly rejected by company officials.

Graham's reaction was described as being "shocked" to be turned down, since his father, Eddie Graham, an influential Florida wrestling promoter, told he would be hired for any job in wrestling by virtue of his rich family heritage.
