The Valiant Brothers Reunion

They were the most glamorous tag team ever.
And now "The boys from New York City" are back in the Tri-State area after a 25 plus year absence.
Legendary "Handsome" Jimmy Valiant - the Boogie Woogie Man - rejoins his wrestling brothers, "Luscious" Johnny Valiant, "Gentleman" Jerry Valiant and Lou Albano for a historic reunion. Having sold out Madison Square Garden four times in a one year period during their 14 month run as tag champs, "Luscious Johnny" and "Handsome" Jimmy are both WWE Hall of Famers. For Jimmy it is an exceedingly rare East Coast autograph appearance. Joined by "Gentleman Jerry" who held the WWWF tag championship with Johnny in 1979, it is Jerry's first time ever signing. And joined by their "Manager of Champions," Captain Lou Albano, it's sure to be a colorful day's entertainment.
Lanny "The Genius" Poffo will regale the Valiants with his poetry and host the legends Q&A that afternoon.
And in a special attraction the Dream Team of Brutus Beefcake and Greg Valentine reunite with their manager Johnny V for their first area appearance in nearly two decades.
Legendary Nikolai Volkoff (with manager Nikita Breznikov) and referee Dick Woerlhe will be joined by top area indie stars including lovely lady wrestlers.
