Bruce Prichard Comments On How WWE Viewed Greg “The Hammer” Valentine

How did WWE view legendary pro wrestler Greg “The Hammer” Valentine during his time with the company?

Bruce Prichard spoke about this during a recent installment of his “Something To Wrestle” podcast, noting WWE viewed the Hall of Fame second-generation performer as a “steady” and “dependable” talent.

Featured below is an excerpt from the show where he touches on this topic.

“Greg was always looked at as steady. He was the guy you could always depend on. He was the guy who could always deliver. He was a great hand….I think he [reinvented himself] with Rhythm and Blues, and that’s why that change was so important. That was an opportunity to completely reinvent himself. You change your look, you change your gimmick – as much as you possibly can. You’re still Greg Valentine, and you’re still doing your shit, but give me a new presentation.”

Check out the complete episode of the show at H/T to 411 Mania for transcribing the above quotes.
