"It is one thing to no-show a pro wrestling event. It is another to demand all your money up front, promise you're going to come and then no show a huge event like the Macho Man Memorial Show," Nicholson said.
"Greg Valentine cost in the ball park of $2,000 for his payoff, plane ticket, and hotel room. That money all went to waste with him no-showing. Greg Valentine truly showed what scum he is this week. I would highly recommend that no promoter trust or book this man. He better hope he never crosses paths with me again. What he did was a horrible insult to me, Lanny, The Macho Man and most importantly the fans who paid to see him."
After negotiations for Valentine to appear at the Randy Savage tribute show were finalized, he drunkenly called organization officials three days before the event demanding that he be paid more money (which he received). Below is audio of the profanity-laced voice message Valentine left.
