WWE Hall of Famer Greg Valentine believes he’s better than both Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair!
A WWE Hall of Famer in his own right, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine believes his name should be mentioned in the same conversation as all-time greats such as Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair. Speaking in a Title Match Wrestling video, Valentine even said that he’s better than both two-time WWE Hall of Famers based on his in-ring work.
“As far as Hogan and Flair, everybody puts those guys over, but I think I’m better than both of them. I did longer matches than Flair. Well, Flair was ‘60-minute man,’ he called himself, but I’m the guy that did 60 minutes. I did 60 minutes in Madison Square Garden, I did 60 minutes everywhere.”
Earlier this year, a video showed the Hulkster hanging out with the Nature Boy and naming who he believed to be the best wrestlers of all time. In the video, Hogan said that Flair was the greatest, he was second, and he placed Stone Cold Steve Austin as number three. Valentine took issue with that, saying that his name should be at the top of the list instead.
“I liked Hogan as a friend, but I couldn’t believe it [when] I saw he put Flair over [and] said, ‘Flair’s number one, I’m number two. I said, ‘Guess what? I’m number one and both you guys are five or six.’”
