Billy Jack Haynes and RF VIDEO go one on one in quite possibly the most brutal and jaw-dropping shoot in our illustrious shoot interview history.

 

Once in a great while, a shoot interview will come along that has everyone in the entire wrestling industry talking. The fans, the boys, the wrestling historians, the people behind the scenes…everyone. RF VIDEO's exclusive new shoot interview with Billy Jack Haynes is one of those legendary shoots. This exhaustive shoot uncovered every aspect of Billy Jack's long career and opened a floodgate of unbelievable - and never heard before - stories. Always known as a shy, soft speaker during his working days as master of the full nelson, Billy Jack lets in all hang out on this jaw dropping shoot and we guarantee that this is one of the all time great interviews.

Starting his career in the Pacific North West, Billy Jack always had that can't-miss, blue chipper aura about him. Much like the troubled Kerry Von Erich, the expectations for Billy Jack were tremendous and he quickly rose to the top of the cards. This meteoric rise to fame brought with it all the problems no one in the industry talks about on the record. RF VIDEO goes even farther back in Billy Jack's history, to the shocking revelation of his molestation by a family member and the devastating fall out. This particular segment of the shoot will affect even the most cold hearted and jaded wrestling fan. Billy Jack then talked about working for the exploding Portland, Oregon territory and gave inside stories on all the top names there including Roddy Piper, Tom Zenk and Dynamite Kid.

Moving on to Billy Jack's time in the Florida territory, we got a story on the death of Eddie Graham that has never been heard anywhere else. Billy Jack explains in detail why he feels Graham shot himself and backs up his theory by discussing the letters Graham had written to Billy shortly before his death. You want shocking? This shoot delivers in a major way. Billy also talks about all the top names in Florida at the time including "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes, Kevin Sullivan, Wahoo McDaniel and Barry Windham. The stories with Dusty Rhodes don't stop there as Billy Jack goes into detail about working for the Crocketts at Starrcade and an actual physical altercation between Billy Jack and Jim Crocket before Haynes went backstage looking to confront Dusty Rhodes! Old school wrestling fans are going to go out of their mind while watching this shoot and hearing all the fantastic tales of the old territories!

Many of RF VIDEO's dedicated fans have been waiting years for Billy Jack to talk about his time in the WWF and this shoot does not disappoint! Billy talks about every facet of his WWF career, including his infamous WrestleMania III match with Hercules Hernandez and why it was so stiff. Billy Jack talked about steroids, the grind on the road, and Hulk Hogan without holding anything back! WWF 80s fans, youll want to watch this to hear some stories which just might make the hair on the back of your neck stand up!

If you are a fan of road stories, this DVD must be added to your video library as Billy Jack told one story after another that covered the entire range of wrestling promotions and personalities, you won't believe the night when Billy Jack went to his car at a WWF house show with the intention of shooting Vince McMahon! This story alone is worth the price of the DVD as it is one you'll never forget!

Suicide attempts. Mental institutions. The RF Video shoot interview series has produced many great shoots in the past, but this might be on of the finest shoots we have ever done. This shoot doesnt require the hype we will give it here, because the shoot will speak volumes, but we wanted to make sure every single one of our valued customers were let in on the ground floor of something great.

Take it with a grain of salt

Billy jack has done several interviews, and his stories always change. He is also bat shit crazy. So, if you don't mind if it's bullshit or not as long as its entertaining, (and it's us marks who buy these so I assume you won't mind) then at the least it's a fun shoot. Lots of info on Portland wrestling, and he isn't afraid to bury anybody.glad I bought it.

In a word: Candid

In my mind, Haynes was a forgettable wrestler who had a forgettable career. My opinion: he had some talent, but he never really got pushed. Not saying he should have been, but I have seen plenty of workers with far less talent get pushed a lot harder. That said, this shoot is very entertaining. Haynes holds back pretty much nothing. He is very honest and candid. I think he may have taken too many shots to the head, he trails off sometimes, but that aside I really enjoyed watching this.

WOW what a shoot

All there is to say about this shoot is you need to see it to believe it. Bill Jack Haynes hold nothing and I mean nothing back when asked questions. This is a must have for your shoot library.

Shoot With Billy Jack Haynes
(Unknown) 2/18/2008 12:55 AM
Of all the wrestling DVDs that I have purchased over the years, this is the top 3. Of the the shoot interviews, this is # 1. He seemed very sincere. I loved his interview. I wish all the other shoot interviews were as candid and thorough. YPMM5

First off, I was never a Billy Jack fan (Didnt like his look or his matches and he was everywhere but nowhere). He comes off as a real compassionate guy towards his dad but also comes off as a con man. But any shoot thats says Hogan did more steroids and coke than anyone is GREAT STUFF. Too much CAMERA WORK BEING TURNED OFF RF. UNEDITED SHOOTS PLEASE. I loved the magazines he brought for this but then accused RF of stealing them was odd (if it was a joke). I dont know how I feel about Billy Jack the person but feel he has no wrestling options so has no reason to lie. Everyone wants a link to all the deaths in wrestling, Its Billy Jack everyone he has touched in the ring has died, and if CRUSH f*'d with him about the WWF wanted him to try out and had him drive so far, then CRUSH JUST GOT THE BILLY JACK CURSE. GOOD JOB RF
