Honky Tonk Man & Missy Hyatt [RF Video Face-Off Shoot Interview]

The Good
RF Video's Face-Off series features many interesting combinations, some good, some not so good and this is somewhere along that same continuum. The Honky Tonk Man is always entertaining, although perhaps has been overexposed like the Iron Shiek, New Jack and Missy Hyatt. Missy, seemingly prompted by RF Video, interviews Honky for the opening segment and that is fine. Then they get into the Honky rhythm and RF pops in a few questions and there off and running. Missy gets in some comments, but the talking is mostly done by Honky. They wax nostalgic, they bury people and they talk about how the business has developed into the current product. Some of this is very good, interesting stuff.

The Bad
I think I've said that once you've seen one Missy Hyatt shoot, you've seen them all. She has a core of people she hates (Eric Bischoff, Jason Hervey, Kevin Sullivan, Dark Journey and such), she has a core group of people she puts over (Eddie Gilbert, Jim Ross, Tammy "Sunny" Sytch and such). Honky Tonk Man is not all that different, but his career was much longer, fuller and he has more to share. I wondered if Missy would drag Honky down or if Honky would pull Missy up. I tend to think more of the former. Honky takes most of this, which is fine by me. This is what it is and it is not the best interview involving either of them, the best Face-Off interview or anything like that.

The Rating: ***3/4
