• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (March 10, 2010) – Old School Wrestling Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2010, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran “Gentleman” Jerry Valiant (Real name: John Hill) at the age of 68 after a battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
From his debut in 1959 until his retirement in 1988, Jerry Valiant wrestled for several territories, such as the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), American Wrestling Association (AWA), St. Louis Wrestling Club (Wrestling At The Chase), NWA Big Time Wrestling, All Japan Pro Wrestling (AJPW), Continental Wrestling Association (Memphis Wrestling), Vancouver All-Star Wrestling, … among many others.
His greatest accomplishment was probably winning the WWF Tag Team Championship with his kayfabe brother, “Luscious” Johnny Valiant, on an episode of WWF Championship Wrestling, that was taped on March 6, 1979.
† REST IN PEACE JERRY VALIANT
July 8, 1941 – March 10, 2010
