There is only one word that can describe Ole Anderson. Cantankerous. Actually, now that we think about it, several other words come to mind as well: bitter, cranky, malicious, stubborn, and outright mean.
Like the old man down the street who yells at squirrels on his lawn, Ole Anderson can be unapproachable. Downright scary even. But no one can accuse the crack staff of RF VIDEO of being cowards, and we summoned up all our courage and approached the notoriously media-hating Ole for an exclusive interview. A one-on-one shoot that would allow one of wrestling's most controversial speakers to hold court and hand down judgment on everything and everyone in his path.
Lo and behold, we proudly present the DVD you've been waiting for. Ole Anderson lives by one rule, it's his way or the highway and this interview is no exception. Wrestling historians will love Ole's tales of wrestlings yesteryear, with stories that including legendary stars such as Verne Gagne, the Bruiser, the Crusher, Lou Thesz, Jim Crockett, Jim Barnett and the Duseks. You will hear all about hooking and booking, as Ole gives first hand accounts of shooting in the ring and what it was like to have to book a promotion full of stars. You want the big names? They come fast and furious as Ole gives his thoughts on men such as Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Thunderbolt Patterson, Roddy Piper, the Road Warriors, Stan Hansen, Jake Roberts and many more. In fact, the promos Ole shoots on his former Four Horsemen teammates are worth the price of admission alone!
We put Ole on the spot by reading him various quotes from over the years by other wrestling superstars about his booking style and watched Anderson go into overdrive. Black Saturday. Vince McMahon. Jim Herd. Kip Frey. The Black Scorpion angle. Brian Pillman. Mick Foley. Why he was really fired by WCW. What really happened in Smokey Mountain Wrestling with his son Bryant. Who is the superstar he considers a stooge above all others? Youll get all that and so much more in the one shoot that has more yelling and cursing than a whole season of The Shield. Outspoken. Outrageous. Outstanding. The Ole Anderson shoot interview from RF VIDEO.
