• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Legend Greg “The Hammer” Valentine (Real name: Jonathan Wisniski) turns 67 today.
After the famous dog collar match versus “Rowdy” Roddy Piper at the first ever Starrcade event (1983), Valentine returned to the World Wrestling Federation in 1984 and won the WWF Intercontinental Championship from Tito Santana later that year.
He wrestled for the company for 8 years, before leaving 1 week after the ‘WWF Royal Rumble 1992’ PPV.
Greg then wrestled in WCW for most of 1992 and from 1996 till 1998. In between his WCW stints, he wrestled as The Blue Knight at Survivor Series 1993 and entered the 1994 Royal Rumble match as himself.
In 2004, The Hammer was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his former manager Jimmy “Mouth of the South” Hart.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GREG VALENTINE!
