Memphis Wrestling legend and WWE Hall of Famer “Handsome” Jimmy Valiant celebrates his 73rd Birthday today. On behalf of everyone at MemphiSport.com – we wish “The Boogie Woogie Man” a very Happy Birthday!
With it being Handsome Jimbo’s Birthday and all – why not take a look at some ole Jimmy Valiant footage for this week’s Throwback Thursday?
This week’s clip reminds us all just how cool and before his time “Handsome” Jimmy really was. The charismatic promo man proved that he could not only wrestle and talk trash – but he could rock ‘n roll too! Check this out from 1978.
Remember when Maria attempted to slap “Handsome” Jimmy? Mercy, daddy!
