• Old School Wrestling Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 92nd birthday of Old School Wrestling Legend “Handsome” Johnny Valentine.
Johnny Valentine wrestled for several territories during the 40s, 50s, 60s & 70s, before he was paralyzed in a plane crash.
He was the legendary father of WWF Legend Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, and while his son got inducted in 2004, Johnny has yet to be (posthumously) inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which is most likely going to happen as part of the annual ‘Legacy Wing’.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
September 22, 1928 – April 24, 2001
• Former WWE Employee Teasing Major Announcement Related To AEW
Gerald Brisco was released by WWE a few weeks ago during the budget cuts due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Brisco made an announcement last Wednesday, which ended abruptly.
Below is what he said:
“Hello internet world, it’s Wednesday night and I told ya I’d be coming to ya Wednesday night, to make my big announcement. First of all I just wanna tell you, and I hope you’re getting this, I really do. I had to borrow my wife’s phone today and she’s got a Samsung, and I’ve got an Apple phone, one of those… smartphones, that you talk and you can see people, you can do this stuff here. I’ve got that and she’s got a Samsung. I don’t know how, but I hope it works.
I’ve wasted all my time here talking about that, and that’s not why you guys came here. I wanna tell you first of all, the love and support you guys, I appreciate you guys appreciating me.
But I’m not going anywhere, I’m on Cameo. I’ll call your girlfriend, tell her you don’t love her anymore. I’ll call ya momma, wish her Happy Birthday, your brother, Happy Birthday. I’ll call your grandma. I may even know your grandma, who knows? ‘Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone.’
I’m on Pro Wrestling Tees. I got new merchandise on Pro Wrestling Tees. One of the thing I got going on, and I’m going to put a press release out on this… I’m going to make this quick so I can get to the big announcement. I got a press release coming out, on me and CJ Agnone, on Twitter follow him, he’s going to be an NFL agent and we’re going to form a talent agency.
I’m a talent scout, he’s going to handle the pro football, NFL. We’re going to have boxing, all kinds of combat sports, and who’s going to handle the combat sports? I am. And he’s going to handle football. So, look for a press release coming out.
You know, everything’s been going good. So, anyway… you didn’t come to listen to all that stuff, you come to hear what my big announcement is. Well, here it is… after 36 years of working behind-the-scenes at WWE, I’ve decided I’m going to… oh, I got 1% [of battery] here… I better get to it here.”
Brisco didn’t say anything further, and is now going to make another announcement this coming Wednesday. He even referred to AEW President Tony Khan in his tweet.
