For over three decades, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine graced the ring for promotions like World Wrestling Entertainment, the National Wrestling Alliance and the American Wrestling Association and now he is heading to Middle Tennessee for a weekend of shows.
Middle Tennessee fans will receive an exceptional treat for the appearance of this former WWF Tag Team and WWF Intercontential Champion in not one night, but three different nights in three different cities.
Starting Thursday night, September 4, 2008, the WWE Hall of Fame inductee will be lacing his boots in Lewisburg, Tennessee, at the ASW Arena at 2224 Mooresville Hwy., Lewisburg, Tennessee, where he will be teaming up with Mikey Dunn taking on Marshall Law (J. P. Cage & Chaos) with doors opening at 7:00 p.m. and belltime at 8:00 p.m.
Along with the show in Lewisburg, on Friday, September 5, Valentine will be heading down to Tullahoma, Tennessee, at 106 Southside Drive where he will be taking on Doug Harrison with doors opening at 7:00 p.m. and belltime at 8:00 p.m.
On Saturday, September 6, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine will be taking on his ASW tag team partner Mikey Dunn in his Tennessee Championship Wrestling debut at 634 East College Street in Pulaski, Tennessee. Valentine will have pictures available for autographs during the show with doors opening at 6:00 p.m. with a 7:00 p.m. bell time.
“This is a rare opportunity,” says All-Star Wrestling’s owner Mikey Dunn. “To see the WWE Hall of Famer this close is a treat for the fans of middle Tennessee. We at the ASW would like to thank our sponsors Century 21 Agent Vickie Cain in Lewisburg, Tennessee, and Sun Loan and Tax Services in Pulaski, Tennessee, for the support of this wrestling legend.”
When asked of his wrestling Valentine as a tag partner and as an opponent, Dunn exclaimed that it was a great honor.
“This is a gift to me getting to not only tag up with one of the best wrestlers in the world, but then getting to go head to head with an idol of mine, this is a great honor and a privilege. Now I get to share this gift with the great wrestling fans of Lewisburg, Tullahoma, and Pulaski.”
Make sure to tell a buddy and bring not only a friend, but the entire family out to see the WWE Hall of Fame Legend Greg “The Hammer” Valentine.
