Some of you might be a little bit younger to remember an old WWF (now WWE) character by the name of “Val Venis”. I use to be into watching the WWF with Hulk Hogan, Randay Savage, Ultimate Warrior, Brett Hart, Shawn Michaels, damn I can go on forever. The 80’s and early 90’s WWF wrestling what the shiz nit, and although the transformation of the WWE into the whole “Attitude” era was alright, it’s completely dead and has been for me for many…. many years. Despite that, I’ll always remember old characters and Val Venis was one of them:
Although he wasn’t the most popular character (well not for me), he was still including in the golden era of great wrestling so I’ll remember him when I see him and this auction caught my attention. At first I though the seller was selling some new wrestling game and that you can get it signed by no other than Val Venis. Now I am not sure if this is actually Val Venis’ eBay account which the seller goes by “me-plus-2“, but it would sense since there a recent photo of a more “older” and “out-of-shape” Val Venis than what I remember him looking. He doesn’t look bad, but you can tell he lost a lot of muscle mass.
Yup, that’s him. So like I said I am not sure if the seller is some random dude who has connections with V.V or if it’s actually V.V himself, but we’ve seen some video game celebs pop up on eBay before such as Richard Divizio signing his own Mortal Kombat banner and even n original Goro MK standee. I am not sure how much value this brings to any video game you own, probably more in the WWF memorabilia spectrum but if he was one of your favorite characters from the WWF then bid on this auction as it’s only $50. He’ll sign any video game (specifically WWF/WWE games) or anything else you want.
Just for your info this is what’s written in the description:
“Brand New and sealed. This can be Autographed by WWE Val Venis “upon request” once payment has been received. You will also receive a Promo picture autographed by him as well.
If you wish him to sign it, please let me know if you want the cello package to be removed in order to sign the box.
PAYMENT DUE WITHIN 3 DAYS OF END OF AUCTION PLEASE”

I received this as a gift and am moving so don’t have room for it anymore. The statue has been on display since I received it in a smoke free home out of direct sunlight. The auction includes the original box as well as the foam. There is wear to the box. If you are looking for a mint condition box, this is not the auction for you.I know this is a higher price point item so I want to be as upfront as possible about everything! Note:There is a little wear on the base where the feet make contact with the base. This came from simply assembling the statue. It is not visible when Ratchet is actually positioned on the base.There is a small wear point on the bottom edge of the base. Not very visible when on display.The base is a little dusty. (Statue went back into the foam once I decided to sell the piece)”.
