Jimmy Valiant 1982: Classic Photo





Jimmy Valiant making an ENTRANCE at MLG in 1982. This was his 'Handsome Jimmy' persona and to say it was popular would be a huge understatement. He was kind of a precursor to Hulkamania in his own way, a lot of flash and energy, and the fans loved him. You could argue his stuff didn't age well but there were others -Leroy Brown notably - that you couldn't mistake for Lou Thesz, but they had the fans and that's what it's all about.
