Honky Tonk Man Shoot Interview # 1

I'll go ahead and start off by saying that I didn't watch much of the DVD. I took this bad boy to work and just listened to it through a set of headphones. Therefore, I can't comment much on the actual camera work although I believe the actual picture was better in the second Honky Tonk Man shoot interview. In fact, (and as a person who is into electronics and the new gadgets) I believe it was filmed with a better camera. Regardless, this DVD is a must buy and featured some classic moments for me. He was really honest in his opinions about different characters he has worked with and I most enjoyed the stories about the Ultimate Warrior and Texas Tornado. I also enjoyed some of his personal life stories such as his move to Phoenix, Arizona and how he felt as though he was "followed". (I'll leave the details of that one as a surprise but I certainly enjoyed it). I also enjoyed his stories about working in the Calgary area around the Hart family and under Stu Hart. Must buy!!

HTM was entertaining, open and honest and he too held nothing back when it came to hogan, vince, wcw, wwf, bischoff and his career. he had stories to tell that no one ever knew about regarding hogan and dr d's relationship. and his reason for not dropping the ic strap to savage did cause a big spiral for the wwf. but then again if vince tries to bury you you have to take a stand and i respect that. he truly does speak his mind and isn't afraid to tell anyone off if he has to!

In my first review, I made comments on how I liked the interview. I must give credit where credit is due! Honky Tonk Man is the longest reigning IC champion in WWF history. That makes him one of the greatest champions of all time and he made his mark in this business. From his humble start in Memphis and working along side his real life cousin Jerry Lawler, great stories on their relationship and why they don't get along. To his run in Florida and then to Calgary working for the late Stu Hart's Stampede promotion. That's where he was found by Hogan and went on to WWF and became a huge star! His feuds with Jake the Snake Roberts, Ricky the Dragon Steamboat, Macho Man Randy Savage, Brutus the Barber Beefcake, Superfly Jimmy Snuka and the Ultimate Warrior were all memorable, Great Warrior stories aswell. His tag team with Greg the Hammer Valetine and how that came about is spoken about. He gives a great story regarding Dr D David Schultz and their friendship with Hogan and how Dr D came up with the original concept of WrestleMania before they came to WWF. He talks about going to WCW and why it was short lived and he really knocks Bischoff and comes down on Hogan for not helping him while he was there. Great Interview from beginning to end and he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame
