Some consider the Valiant Brothers the premier tag team of the 1970s. With their bleached blond hair, rugged ring moves and over all flamboyance, the
Valiants were revolutionary, giving fans a taste of what sports entertainment would look like in the future.
Handsome Jimmy and Luscious Johnny seemed unbeatable at times, holding the WWE championship for an entire year in 1974 and 1975. Despite the fact that
the fans were always cheering their opponents like Tony Garea, Dean Ho and Chief Jay Strongbow, the Valiants generally left the ring snickering.
Later on, another Valiant brother, Gentleman Jerry, would be added into the mix. Jimmy would go on to become "the Boogy Woogy Man" in other
promotions, while Johnny transformed himself into manager Johnny V and, later, a popular New York comedian.
