• Old School WWF Manager Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 72nd birthday of Old School World Wrestling Federation Manager “Luscious Johnny V” Johnny Valiant (Real name: John L. Sullivan).
Most 80s WWF Fans will remember him as the manager of ‘The Dream Team’ Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake & Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, ‘The New Dream Team’ Dino Bravo & Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, as well as being the first manager of Demolition, before Mr. Fuji took over.
Johnny and his kayfabe brother “The Boogie Woogie Man” Jimmy Valiant got inducted into the WWF Hall of Fame (now WWE Hall of Fame) in 1996 by The British Bulldog & Owen Hart.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & REST IN PEACE!
• Former WWE Star Says He Can Beat Brock Lesnar – If Lesnar Can Get His Lazy Arse Up
Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville did a Q&A on Instagram and answered questions regarding why he left WWE, his issue with Enzo Amore & more.
Below are the highlights:
Why did you leave WWE?
“They killed the king and gave the crown to a wannabe rapper.”
What would you have done differently, from a booker’s perspective?
“I would have kept me the champ and not lose twice to that pathetic bastard of a man.”
Why did you leave WWE? We all miss you.
“I disagreed with my booking.”
How was Vince?
“Powerful man. Won’t say much though he’d sue me 4 times in a row.”
What if you met Enzo in the streets?
“Black Arrow. Done.”
How long would Enzo last in a real fight with you?
“It wasn’t really Enzo why I left, I don’t hate the lad. He was just annoying backstage and putting the title on him was bad, especially beating me. I was worth more than being jobbed out to jobbers so that’s why I left.”
So it’s safe to say that you and Enzo weren’t best friends like he said?
“Like I said, I don’t hate the lad. Just disagreed with the booking.”
Do you hate WWE?
“No, they gave me the opportunity to shine and shine and I did. The lads over there are great, but they ran out of ideas for me so I left.”
Can you beat Brock Lesnar?
“Yes, if he can get his lazy arse up.”
