Shoot Interview with PG 13

At one time the tag team of PG-13, Wolfie D (Kelly Wolfe) and JC Ice (Jamie Dundee), were young ambitious athletes looking to take the wrestling world by storm. Now we have these two together again and All Grown Up. Months ago highspots.com brought you the highly entertaining Jamie Dundee shoot interview. This time we brought Jamie back with his former parnter and a full case of beer.

Topics ranging from drugs, sex, violence, and a little wrestling get discussed when these guys tell of the wild times they had as a team. Much like the Jamie Dundee shoot, this one gets wild in a hurry when Jamie pops the top of a fresh one and talks about any and everything on his mind!! No topic, no company, no former boss, NO ONE is safe when these guys get going.

This DVD got so out of control we had to keep the camera's rolling and make it a two disc set. This double disc also has bonus features including Jamie and Wolfe going one on one in a chain match from early in their career. This one is a must for your DVD collection!

Scott Hall will go down in the books as one of the most entertaining and compelling shoot interviews in the history of RF Video. Hall's passion for the wrestling business comes alive right from the beginning when talking about his memories of breaking in the business and working for Jim Crockett as a rookie. Those who know Scott know that there are very few short answers as Scott goes in depth with his answers to all of our questions. He literally was giving two or three extra stories while answering one question. Scott's memory of recalling all the events throughout his career is amazing to witness. Hall remembers every little detail and had no trouble sharing those experiences without holding anything back. What you will love about Scott is how he wears his heart on his sleeve as he talks honesty about himself. This is a man who has no problem taking responsibility for his actions that others may have found controversial. This exclusive shoot interview is a combination of interesting road stories and compelling answers to questions that spanned from his salad days in Florida as a greenhorn all the way to his current comeback in Puerto Rico.
 
Some of the many highlights of the interview include: Scott talking about the break Barry Windham gave him early on his career; being ribbed in Kansas City by two of the territories biggest stars, how he reacted, and the surprising reaction he got from Harley Race; Hall's run in the AWA, who helped him during that time, and who tried to sandbag him early on in matches; the lessons he learned wrestling Bruiser Brody early on; the influence that Curt Hennig, Larry Zbysko, and Dusty Rhodes had throughout his career; what he learned from Verne Gagne and the strange way that the meeting went in which he gave Verne his notice; how he wound up in WCW and how the Diamond Stud gimmick developed; and DDP and Hall being ribbed early on and how it turned out for an unlucky wrestler.
 
It gets better. More topics include: Halls very candid thoughts on Ric Flair leaving WCW while he was holding the strap, and how The Nature Boy took that resentment to him to the WWF and how it almost came out in a booking meeting with Vince McMahon; the process of how Hall got into the WWF and how long it took; the initial meeting with Vince McMahon and how he sold Vince on his character while coming up with the name Razor Ramon (this includes a surreal moment when Hall went into character and it beame immediately apparent as to how truly talented and charismatic this legend truly is); putting Sean Waltman over on Monday Night Raw, why the angle worked, and a match early in his career that inspired the angle; and the legendary WrestleMania X match with Shawn Michaels and some of his peers reactions.
 
We also were able to get Scott's side of a story told by Shane Douglas, in a previous shoot interview, about the heat between the two of them and what it stemmed from. Hall also gave his view of the infamous weekend the Clique allegedly went on strike and Vince McMahon came to a house show to calm down the locker room. You will hear the evolution of the Kliq and their issues with Chris Candido. Scott talked about what it was like to wrestle Bret Hart and gives his opinion on whether Bret is overrated or not. We found out Hall's side of the story on to why he did not want to work a program with Goldust and all the behind the scenes notes on how the negotiations went down with WCW and how Vince reacted to it. This led to the controversy behind Hall's suspension for failing a drug test towards the end of his WWF run and how he found about it. Hall's last house show matches before leaving to go to WCW and the most famous Nitro in wrestling history where he debuted, how it almost turned out different, and who's idea it was that would make or break the angle. The infamous Bash at the Beach and the politics behind Hogan going black and white. You will hear a first person account of the heat between the NWO and the Horsemen after the infamous Arn Anderson skit and the hypocrisy behind it.
 
Hall discussed his matches with Goldberg and gave some interesting comments rebutting claims Goldberg has made about Scott and Kevin Nash over the last few years while also giving a very interesting take to the age old question as to whether WCW used Bret Hart right or not. We got Hall's version of what happened between Jerry Saggs and himself that resulted in a lawsuit. Why was Hall originally fired by WCW and what were the politics behind it? Scott talks that and about leaving WCW for good and what he had planned at the time. The DVD covers the NWO return to the WWE, how it came about, and why he and Nash had reservations going into it. How WrestleMania changed around the day of the show and why he thinks that happened. The differences in how Vince used the NWO as compared to how they were used in WCW. Hall's matches with Steve Austin are covered along with some interesting insight. Hall describes the chemistry between he, Nash, and Hogan and Hogan's part in the NWO in the WWE. Why things didn't work out in the WWE and the final conversation he had with Jim Ross about his tenure in the company. Scott talked about his brief run with NWA TNA. Holding back nothing, Scott talked about his personal issues and how he feels about the fact they are so public. Scott got very emotional when speaking about the recent tragedy involving Chris, Daniel, and Nancy Benoit. Scott talked about the rumors behind the DX vs. NWO feud last year. His future and his current return in Puerto Rico. His future intentions and where he may pop up next. Throughout the interview Scott gets very detailed about match psychology, the theory behind doing jobs, good business and bad business, and the change in philosophy in wrestling today.

 August the 2nd has become one of the greatest days in RF VIDEO history. We were able  meet and be apart of the Howard Stern show with the one and only Iron Sheik. Just a total mind blowing experience and we want to thank everyone over at the Howard Stern show, Eric Simms for making this happen, and Tom Brandi for being apart of a brand new amazing On the Road with the Iron Sheik DVD! That's right, we got this all on video!
 
Where to begin?  A few months ago we conducted an infamous shoot with the Iron Sheik which received a ton of attention. Anyone who has watched that shoot knows how memorable it was and it will definitely go down as one of our funniest shoots of all time… one that we thought could never be topped. UNTIL TODAY!!!
 
Everyone here is a huge fan of the Howard Stern show at the RF VIDEO and a few weeks back we established a great relationship with a few of the guys from that show.  They got a chance to watch the shoot with the Sheik and, of course, they absolutely loved it.  If you remember, on that shoot we said we should get Sheik on the Stern show. How's that for foreshadowing?! We got a call about four weeks ago from Eric Simms , who had also been talking to the people at Stern's office. Simms had Sheik on The Ferrell Show and after that happened Howard's staff thought it was so amazing that he wanted Sheiky immediately on his show.  
 
Soon afterwards we were contacted and asked if they could air our footage on the upcoming Sheik appearances on the TV show as well as the radio show. It would crazy to turn down that kind of PR, so we jumped at the offer. We were also told that Howard wanted Sheik on today and that we also personally invited to come to the studio as well. Everyone from Artie to Sal to Richard put our shoot interview over huge to Howard.
 
We decided that brand new On the Road DVD with the Iron Sheik was just what the doctor ordered, so that is exactly what we did for the past 48 hours, and trust me this might top the last shoot if that was even possible.  We even added Tom Brandi to the mix, who just happens to be one of the most outspoken and hilarious guys in the business.
 
Our shoot started playing on the Stern show last week and continued to be played all week long. No one in the office could not sleep for the past few days as we were all so excited about doing the show.  On Monday they played a lot more of the shoot, which got us a ton of great press. It was like living a dream. Then the entire RF VIDEO crew headed to New Jersey to stay overnight in a hotel with the legend that is the Iron Sheik.  When we got there we were immediately told that the Sheik was in rare form. So we quickly went to Sheiky's hotel room and captured over a hours worth of amazing footage of the Sheik talking about Ultimate Warrior and the convention footage of "e;the slap heard around the world."e; Sheik also went off on Hulk Hogan for not calling him. Priceless. Sheik then broke down about the Chris Benoit tragedy and gave his views on this controversial topic. We also got Sheik to open up and talk about the incident in Canada where he got stuck in a car for five hours. FIVE HOURS. After a couple more stories we realized Sheik had been talking for so long that it was time for everyone to head off for dinner. We kept our cameras rolling the entire car ride and you will feel like you were in the backseat for the ride. You will hear wild stories on Bob Orton, Superfly Snuka,  Randy Savage, Fred Blassie, Roddy Piper, Vader, Ric Flair, Bob Backland, and many more. Sheik started to cry after he heard about the passing of a true wrestling legend, Karl Gotch. After we got to the restaurant we were almost thrown out on our asses because Sheik was very loud and did not use the proper language with so many kids around.  If you thought the Sheik was crazy wait until you just watch the first hour of this brand new DVD that is another RF VIDEO exclusive.
 
The next morning, everyone headed to the city at 5:30AM.  Before we got to the studios, we stopped at Madison Square Garden so that Sheik could cut some promos for us that will be included on the DVD. This was legit some of the best stuff we ever filmed. Then it was time to head on over to the Sirius studios where we were quickly escorted into a green room before Ronnie came in to greet us. Everyone had to sign waiver for our appearance and we were in there with 30 Rock's own Tracy Morgan.  We sat in one green room before we were actually allowed into yet another green room inside the office area. As we walked to the green room, Sheik was already being interviewed as there were cameras everywhere and pictures were being taken like crazy. It was an amazing feeling and several people remarked how surreal the entire scene was. We got to meet Robin and Gary before we went to sit down and as soon as we were in the interview room we were greeted by Will and given some basic instructions.  Artie Lange came into the room to talk to us and so did Bubba the Love Sponge. Bubba wanted to thank us for his wrestling footage from ECW and we talked about meeting Bubba back in the ECW days down in Florida when he worked Bill Alfonso in 1999 and 2000.  Could there be a Hogan and Bubba shoot interview in the works? Time will tell. As the morning went on everyone at the Stern show were really cool with us as they let us go in the hallway and basically film anything we wanted as long as it wasn't in the main studio.  We ran into Richard and Sal who were dressed up like Randy Savage and the Ultimate Warrior.  It was hysterical to watch them get ready for their bit. Artie was also getting dressed up like the Sheik and we were giving them all pointers on how to act as the guys they were playing. This was truly laugh out loud material and has to be seen to be believed! 
 
When it was finally time for the big show it was like being on another planet. Truly it was one of the most intense productions since we witnessed a WWE PPV being put together.  They had everyone running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Gary seems like he was always in control and everyone worked smoothly despite the chaos. Sirius had a great staff that went way out of their way for us and we were incredibly thankful. During Sheik's official interview, we were allowed to chill with Sal and Richard in their office and everyone was there from JD to Fred and Benji.  If it sounds a little like we are marking out… well, we are! Everyone is still on a high from being apart of this amazing day. A lot of the staff there were nervous about Sheik going crazy.  In fact, Bubba was telling us before the show went on the air that he intended to put Sheik in his place for trash talking his friends like Hogan and Brian Blair. We were all on pins and needles knowing it was going to get heated, and boy did it ever when Bubba and Sheik went at it. Everyone at RF VIDEO also swelled with pride as Stern asked questions based on our very own shoot.
 
When the show was over we were allowed in the studio to meet the man himself, Howard Stern. It was just really cool to be in the studio and we all loved watching how everything was put together. Howard was a total class act with us and you could tell that he is a man with great power. Just to be around him was an honor and a privilege. Afterwards we got to meet Fred and talk to Gary some more and since the show was over for the day they had lunch brought in for everyone.  Ronnie told us that we could help ourselves to their food, which was a great gesture.  We ate with the staff and set up some HUGE projects down the line. You are going to see a lot more in the future of RF VIDEO teaming up with the Howard Stern show.  We already have talks about doing something for upcoming DVD releases.
 
We also had Richard and Sal do a special interview for our On the Road with the Sheik DVD! And just wait until you see who else makes a rare appearance…
 
When it was all over, we left with a big smile that lasted all the way back to the hotel. We filmed even more of the road trip on the way back home where you will hear what the Sheik thought about Artie and Bubba. He goes completely off on both of them.  You will listen to his recap of the entire morning and wonder how a man like this can truly exist in this world. Sheiky baby, we love ya!
