Greg “The Hammer” Valentine appeared on Filsinger Games’ the View Podcast and said that he didn’t believe in women wrestling, boxing or being in MMA. You can check out the full podcast at this link, with Valentine’s comments beginning at about 41:44 in.
Valentine brought up his points unprompted in the middle of answering a question about bringing managers back. He said, “As far as girl wrestling, I would send them all out to the strip bar and fire ’em…I’d fire every girl wrestler I ever saw. They don’t draw any money, they have horrible matches. They’re terrible. That’s the way I feel.”
He added, “They take away jobs from men that need to support their families. They should be home washing dishes and cooking and pregnant and barefoot…I love women … but they gotta realize their place. They’re not supposed to be wrestlers. They’re not supposed to be MMA fighters or boxers. It’s bullshit.”
It’s worth noting, that the host of the show then called Valentine’s comments a “perfect heel interview,” and he laughed and agreed with the host when called the “Donald Trump of wrestling,” but otherwise he didn’t appear to be “in character” or joking.
Wow …. just wow. Let us know your thoughts on his comments in the comments section below!
