Honky Tonk Man Shoot Interview (RF Video 2004)

The Good
The Honky Tonk Man is one of the most out-spoken pro-wrestling legends there is and he absolutely shines in shoot interviews.  He is probably classified by some as bitter, self-righteous or nuts and there might be a little truth to all of those.  Regardless of the negatives, Honky is wildly entertaining with his over-the-top opinions, hilarious comments, silly impressions all done with his signature Southern twang.  Whether he's taunting washed up wrestlers, bashing money-grabbing Bible-thumpers or explaining why various people need an ass-whippin', HTM can't not put a smile on your face.

The Bad
Honky was stuck in a shoot interview with the Iron Sheik and New Jack for several reasons: he's loud-mouthed, he's controversial, he's hilarious and he's gold behind a microphone.  While people could definitely knock him for his approach and question his opinions, which I do at times, you believe he's genuine.  Is he?  The Honky Tonk Man is a worker and if he's working Rob Feinstein, the fans that bought this or anyone who hears him, I'd not be surprised.

The Rating: ****1/4
