WOW! Didn't know Flair owed him money as well. LOL!

Loved hearing about all those Georgia booking stories. Seems ole Jim Barnett kept going back on Ole time and time again.

Before my time, but Ole talked about how great Louis Tillet was a booker. Anybody here work with Mr. Tillet.

Ole's ornery but who cares? Fascinating interview from a territorial perspective. God, I miss those days!

I've loved all the shoots I've heard Ole do. Say what you will about the man - he says exactly what's on his mind, and there's always something there.

I don't recall the book but when Vince was buying the TBS time slot he said "C'mon Ole, let's make a lot of money together" and Ole said "F### off"

I have loads of respect for Ole, but I don't think I've ever read an interview where Tillet as booker gets mentioned and it's not in the context of him running the promotion into the ground.

Cool, BJL. Didn't mean to be flip. But Ole's the first time I've heard Tillet praised as a booker.

How many Ole shoots were there? Was it three?
RF Video, High Spots, and Scott Teal's Shooting with the Legends?

There's four all together: one with Highspots, one with RF and two with Scott Teal. I think the Teal ones are the best because Ole isn't nearly as confrotational as he's been in certain situations. But I do admit I think the RF video is actually entertaining just to listen to Ole insult the interviewer.

Personally, I thought Ole was a great interview, great worker and had a very good mind for the business. He's also as stubborn as mule.

Ole insulting the guy in the RF video was PRICELESS. The kid had it coming though. Trying to tell Ole that Ted Turner "owned the NWA in 1991"...LOL!!!

Ole told him to "quit being so damn dumb!" LOL!!!

IIRC, RF asked Ole what he thought of Flair leaving with the belt in 1991. Ole responded by asking him how many promoters were in the NWA at the time and RF said that Turner owned it. That's when Ole made the "quit being so damn dumb" comment.

He asked RF again how many promoters there were and RF said there were two big companies and a bunch of smaller ones. Ole got frustrated and asked if there was a promoter out in San Francisco or Los Angeles. RF said no and Ole said "Right, because there was no NWA anymore" and tried to make the point that when Flair left with the belt it didn't matter because he was no longer champion of anything.

Only problem with Ole's "facts" is that Flair was still champion of WCW and the NWA (even if there were no more territories, it still existed as an organization) when he left and it DID matter to them, which is why they sued when he took the belt to Vince.

Technically when Herd fired Flair, he wouldn't have been WCW champ even if he did take the belt leaving him as NWA champ and as Ole correctly stated, the champion of nothing.

I wonder how WWF would have turned out if Ole Anderson was Vince's booker in the 80s.

I've heard the one where Dave Meltzer interviews him and every 3rd question was met with "Have you read the book?"

yeah, that was the Eyada interview. I remember Ole saying to Dave something to the effect of 'The difference between me and you is I am worth something"

Ole is just upset that he is not in Meltzer's hall of fame.

Well, for a guy who claimed not to care about being in the Observer HOF, Ole spent a hell of a lot of time talking about not being in the Observer HOF.

Dave is a much better writer than interviewer as I thought he did a poor job on that one. Ole should just take meltzers HOF with a big grain of salt

When I look at some of the ones in Meltzer's HOF and compare them to Ole's career.....I'd have to agree with you.

I understand that Ole is revered by many on here while Feinstein is (justifiably) reviled, however, I'm still at a loss as to what point Ole thought he was making here, and fail to understand how it can be viewed as him "owning" Feinstein as many like to gleefully claim when the point he was making was nonsensical.

As if a wrestler who holds a made-up world title for winning pre-determined wrestling matches is somehow more or less of a world champion depending on the current organizational structure of the group whose world title he holds. When Flair left for the WWF in 1991 it was a huge deal. I would seriously doubt that there was even one wrestling fan who said to himself, "Well, I would be excited about Flair jumping to the WWF as World Champion, but since the NWA no longer has representation in Los Angeles or San Francisco I guess it's no big whoop". Ole was the one who was out of touch with that comment.

Ole was the one who was out of touch with that comment.

Unless you were reading the Observer or Torch, you probably didn't know that the NWA even still existed. But regardless of if there were territories or not, Flair was still champion of something.

Even if the NWA HAD morphed into WCW, he was champion when he was fired and took the belt with him. Yeah, I know Herd technically stripped him of the title, but to discount that it wasn't a big deal because he wasn't the official WCW champion when he went to the WWF, or that him being NWA champion meant "nothing" because there weren't anymore territories, is really ignorant. The fans saw it as a big deal, and obviously WCW and the NWA did too or else they wouldn't have gone to court and tried to block him from using the belt or even calling himself a world champion.

So for Ole to just blow it off as "nothing" is either completely ignorant or just hard headed. And it's not like Feinstein was in any position to challenge him because Ole was right about one thing, Feinstein DIDN'T know what he was talking about. When Ole was interviewed by Meltzer, he came across at least somewhat bad, IMO, because Dave actually knew his stuff and would tell Ole when he was incorrect about something. Ole may not have liked it, but oh well. Feinstein just asks a bunch of questions without doing any research or knowing the background, so when Ole berates him he comes off as a complete moron that just says "right" and folds like a chair because he knows he's ignorant to the facts of everything he's asking.
