World Wrestling Entertainment Hall of Famer Jimmy Hart has managed a long list of professional wrestlers.

When Hart travels to Miami for the Legends of Wrestling Night on Saturday, Aug. 24 at Marlins Park, he will be reunited with Greg The Hammer Valentine, Koko B. Ware, Brutus The Barber Beefcake and The Hart Foundation (Bret the Hitman Hart and Jim the Anvil Neidhart).

“It has been some time since I last saw some of these guys,” Jimmy Hart said in an interview with The Roman Show.

The Legends of Wrestling Night, in conjunction with the Miami Marlins/Colorado Rockies game, also includes Bill Goldberg, Wes Brisco, Davey Boy Smith Jr., Chavo Guerrero Jr. and more. They will be signing free autographs during the game. After the game, there will be a live pro wrestling show.

Jimmy Hart, who serves as a WWE ambassador, says the fans deserve all the love.

“The fans have been so wonderful for us,” he said. “The 80’s era, we stick together.”

In the interview, Jimmy Hart also mentions that he will extend an invitation to big time wrestling fan and musical artist Flo Rida, a Miami-Carol City native.

“Flo Rida is a major wrestling fan,” he said. “If he has a chance, he will come out and maybe participate.”

Hart explains his history with pro wrestling in Miami and also performing there with his rock band The Gentrys, best known for their number one hit, “Keep on Dancing.”

Prior to the Marlins baseball game on Saturday, Aug. 24, The Roman Show will be conducting a live show from Marlins Park in the West Plaza.

• Also on The Roman Show, former Ring of Honor and TNA wrestling star Homicide discuss how he turned down a scholarship from the University of Miami to play baseball and opted to dedicate his efforts to pro wrestling full-time. The independent wrestler said he regrets making the decision. He also sends a strong positive message to up-and-coming pro wrestlers.
