Re: Forgotten Legends3: Greg Valentine
He was a fairly well protected heel in the early 80s. There was even a house show where they teased a "win" over Hogan for the title only to rule it a DQ or some such (can't remember the exact details and too lazy right now to google it).
I personally enjoyed The Hammer in those days and he was part of large collection of awesome heels that the WWE cultivated in those days to throw at Hogan. Others include Piper, Muraco, Orndorff, and many others.
Greg Valentine is also the son of legendary heel John Valentine who was as successful in his days as a top heel could get, but his career was ended by the same plane crash that broke Ric Flair's back.
