• Old School Wrestling Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School Wrestling Veteran “The Boogie Woogie Man” Jimmy Valiant (Real name: James Fanning) celebrates his 78th birthday today.
After teaming with his kayfabe brother “Luscious Johnny V” Johnny Valiant during the 70s, Jimmy Valiant ended up becoming one of the greatest comedy characters in pro wrestling history, when he adapted the “Boogie Woogie Man” persona while wrestling on NWA TV (including several PPVs) for Jim Crockett Promotions.
In 1996, the Valiant Brothers got inducted into the WWF Hall of Fame (now WWE Hall of Fame) by “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith & “The King of Harts” Owen Hart.
They became the first Tag Team ever to be inducted into the WWF/E Hall of Fame!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOOGIE WOOGIE MAN!
• Marty Jannetty Gives More Details On How He Killed A Man In 1973
As we noted earlier, Old School WWF Veteran Marty Jannetty took to Facebook on Wednesday morning to admit that he murdered a gay man, when he was 13 years old.
Jannetty was interviewed on Boston Wrestling Sports’ YouTube channel, where he discussed the matter.
He said that the man tried to “rape” him, which was a thing he used to do to kids frequently.
“He was a front desk clerk. He was known to sell the weed. What I didn’t know was he lured in little kids.
I can’t say he deserved to die, but he deserved to get his a$$ beat.”
Jannetty said that he wasn’t trying to kill the man when he was “beating him in the head with a brick” but when the man died, he then tried to get rid of the body.
“Can you imagine dragging a guy — he’s just tried to f*** you in the a$$ — can you imagine dragging him to the river and throwing him in? And, then finding out on the news the dude’s missing. You know the dude. And, you know more than that. That affected me bad, bro.”
The Columbus, Georgia Police Department is currently investigating the matter.
