Greg “The Hammer” Valentine was recently interviewed by app.com. During the interview, Valentine revealed that he doesn’t like how wrestlers of today ignore kayfabe and how the importance of making what they do in the ring look believable has been diminished. Here’s what he had to say:
I’m not OK with that, because I busted my (butt) trying to make everything believable. Now they think it’s all a show. I know guys still work real hard and stuff like that, but when you tip your hat toward convention and say it’s planned who’s going to win or loose, that ruins it as far as I’m concerned. Why would you have to tip your hat to something like that?
When I was wrestling, I wanted them to believe everything that I did in the ring. That’s why I worked solid, that’s why I hit guys hard, that’s why I had them hit me hard. It was all a different concept back then.
