Former WWE Star Challenges Greg Valentine To MMA Match (Video)

WWE Hall of Famer Greg “The Hammer” Valentine no-showing Great North Wrestling’s Randy Savage tribute show on Sept. 3 in Hawkesbury, Ontario, Canada has been turned into an angle.

Lanny Poffo, the brother of the late superstar wrestler, posted a video on YouTube challenged the 60-year-old to a mixed martial arts match on December 30 in Gatineau. The wrestler formerly known as The Genius says he will throw cash he received from his recent inheritance to bait Valentine into the fight. He also taunts Valentine by calling him a “mangina” and that he may be left in a body bag.


Valentine posted an explanation Friday on his Facebook account apologizing for no-showing the event and leaving a nasty voice message to Great North Wrestling promoter Devon Nicholson. Valentine says he no-showed the event because he received a phone call on the morning of the show that his mother-in-law had two days left to live, so he flew to Nashville to be by her side—she recovered. Nicholson said between Valentine’s flight from Tampa, hotel, pay and photos he printed up to sell, he was out $2,000. Valentine said he would return Nicholson the money when he arrived in Tampa.

“This was never the issue, so why he had to go off and try to hurt me at a time where we are having a tragedy in our family, I don’t know,” Valentine wrote of Nicholson releasing his angry voice message and saying he no-showed the event after he was paid.

He continues, “What tends to hurt me the most, is that I asked him to please tell the fans that I was sorry and that I was not going to be able to make it to the event. I purposely made sure that he would express that to the fans who came out to see me, and to celebrate the life of Randy Savage. Instead, he tells everyone that I pulled a “No show”. He didn’t give any reason for my absence, just told people I didn’t show up. This is not how I operate. However, when push comes to shove with family, family will always win out.”

    @ Jefferson.

    You’re gonna believe something that Hogan said ?????

    Smells like bullshit to me. Probably a work to promote the hell out of the December show. Because if Lanny and this Hannibal guy had a REAL problem with Valentine, why are they cutting promos on fucking YouTube?! Who does that? And nice one Lanny, throw your deceased brother’s money at the camera, “shooting” on Valentine. I don’t care what his sexual orientation is, but Lanny has the gayest voice ever. And according to that douchebag Hulk Hogan, Lanny use to entertain people in the locker room by blowing himself. Great talent to have, weirdo. If this is legit, fuck you Valentine. But I just feel it’s all work by a bunch of has-beens and nobodies to sell a show.

    They should throw all the druggies from TNA in a UFC cage fight. Kurt Angle would break a beer bottle over Fat Hardy’s head, and say he was framed.

    lol that would be the slowest mma fight ever they would both get tired half way through the first round and they would fall asleep by the second round and ya valantine would end up in a body bag becuse he would suffer a massive stroke
