MISSOULA, Mont. - The Missoula Osprey in conjunction with Big Time Wrestling announced today that WWE Hall of Famer and former Intercontinental Champion Greg "The Hammer" Valentine as well as Hornswoggle have been added to the Big Time Wrestling show that already includes WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, "Hardcore Icon" The Sandman and Carlito set for Ogren Park Allegiance Field on Friday, June 9.

Valentine is scheduled to take on Mr. TA in a Dog Collar Match. Mr. TA wrestled "Nasty Boy" Brian Knobbs in a "Missoula Street Fight" in 2015 and took on Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake as part of a tag team match in 2016.

Known for his figure-four leg-lock, Valentine was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2004 by his former manager Jimmy Hart. He held the WWF Tag Team Championship with Brutus Beefcake (The Dream Team) and was also a one-time WWF Intercontinental Champion. Valentine defended the Intercontinental belt at the very first WrestleMania against the Junkyard Dog and held the title for 285 days, the fifth-longest reign ever.

Hornswoggle has appeared on WWE programming for over a decade and as part of many different gimmicks. Hornswoggle won the WWE Cruiserweight Championship and was the last reigning champion before that belt was retired. He was revealed as the Anonymous Raw General Manager who had control of the brand from June 2010 to July 2011.

For reasons beyond Big Time Wrestling and the Missoula Osprey's control, previously announced superstar, The Honky Tonk Man will not appear at the Missoula show.
