WWE Hall of Famer Greg "The Hammer" Valentine is reportedly suffering an illness that forced him to missed an independent wrestling show last Saturday in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
The Hammer was scheduled to appear at Canadian Wrestling's Elite "Legends Of Wrestling and Professional Sports Convention 2," but his wife told CWE officials that he became violently ill last Wednesday.
The company then released a statement last Thursday that said:
"It is with great sadness CWE management has to report that we were contacted by Julie Valentine, the wife of Greg Valentine informing us that Greg became violently ill last night and was hopeful he would be feeling better before his flight this evening but is in need of medical attention and will not be able to attend this weekend's CWE Legends Of Wrestling & Professional Sports Convention 2 in Winnipeg."
This unfortunate circumstances led to Ron Simmons reaching out to D'Lo Brown to appear at the convention in place of Valentine.
