I Finally Met Val Malone

Val Malone made her debut on the wrestling scene in 2006, but somehow I never got a picture with her over these many years. That changed at Blizzard Brawl 2019.
Mostly a manager, Val has occasionally entered the squared circle for battle. Her strength is being the mouthpiece for various wrestlers and occasionally "helping" them during matches.
Based in Milwaukee, WI, I have seen Malone in action a few times. Billed as the First Lady of Milwaukee Wrestling, Val is always a hit with fans.
In 2019, when I was covering Blizzard Brawl for, I messaged Malone, asking if I could meet up with her for the story. She agreed, but for the first part of the night, the timing was off. Finally after intermission, I messaged Val and she set a meeting place for the big event. We talked for a bit and I got the long-awaited picture.
I appreciate Val's time, patience and consideration. She went out of her way on a night she was very busy.
Look for Val on various wrestling shows in the Milwaukee-Chicago area. She's a terror in and around the ring, but a sweetheart to fans.
Without further adieu, I now present that picture. Also, you can see an interview I recently did with Val at On the Beat With Val Malone.
