Hillbilly Jim Shoot Interview
Jim held nothing back as he had one incredible story after another and I could have sat with him for hours. Going into the interview, I was nervous because I was not sure if Jim would be open or so old school that he would kayfabe us and hold stuff back but man was I wrong. If you love interviews with locker room stories or behind the scene stories this interview is for you.
Jim talks about his start in the business and how he broke in. He talks about his early runs in Calgary for Stu Hart and what it was like to work in Memphis for Jerry Lawler and Jerry Jarrett. How did he break into the WWE after being inside the WWE locker room at a spot house show in FL and who sized him up.
Jim talks about his amazing angle that lead him to jumping over the guardrail after he was placed at ringside for months that saw him save Hulk Hogan when the Hulkster was triple teamed. Jim was surround by a locker room full of giants at the time of his WWE debut and he talks about what it was like to work with all of them from Big John Studd, Andre the Giant, King Kong Bundy and many others. Jim got to see all of the top names come into the WWF at the time during the wrestling boom and he has stories on all of them. This is when I was hooked as his stories were all so entertaining.
