ESS PROMOTIONS sat down for the 4th time this weekend with the legendary Iron Sheik for what can be described as one of the greatest shoots out there today. I did 3 other shoots with him but none compare to this over 3 hour more than 200 question shoot interview. The first one I did with him covered his career but the lighting was bad and felt guilty selling it. The second one covered the different territories and is very informative. The third one was done just after September 11. He talked about all the terrorism, plus the McMahons, ribs and road stories and more. What makes this shoot different is that on the first 3 he kayfabed a lot. On this 4 edition I finally got it right and he does not kayfabe anything. I told him he was not allowed to kayfabe and he had to shoot hard on all my questions. I had over 200 questions and was a little concerned about getting all of them in. I started with the hard hitting intriguing questions and hoped he would not lose patience. He hung in there for 3 hours and answered every question. Some will amaze you. I even asked him about the famous beer bottle throwing incident that happened with him and I after a Fan Slam convention that had the best and most heated dialogue on the tape. Find out if he apologized to me or not for that incident.
