RF Video Iceman King Parsons Shoot Interview DVD

Disc is in excellent condition

RF Video conducted what may go down as one of the most controversial shoot interviews of all time. From death to drugs to groupies to racism, this is a shoot interview that you have to see. It would have to take one man who has seen all of the controversy and known the players to give an interview like this one. That one man is Iceman King Parsons. RF Video is thrilled to announce its newest shoot interview with the great Iceman King Parsons.

At one time, Iceman was one of the most popular wrestlers in the business. How did a young man driving a dump truck in Houston wind up on the shoulders of fans in Dallas Texas? Iceman’s journey started with a chance meeting. Iceman talks about how it all went down and how he wound up working for Paul Boesch as a rookie.

Iceman has some great stories about his early days in the business. Unlike today’s era, Iceman wasn’t smartened up right away. It took a grueling beating from one of wrestling’s veterans to smarten up Iceman. What veteran and legendary manager took liberties with Iceman and almost ran him out of the business? The story will shock and inspire you at the same time.

Iceman is very candid with the racism he faced as a young black man in the industry. Iceman talks about the problems he had early on in Portland. Iceman talks about being harassed nightly by one wrestler and the booker. How did he handle it? What mentor finally gave Iceman the courage to stand up for himself? What happened after he stood up for himself? Iceman also gives a fun retrospective of Roddy Piper from that time period.

One of the most interesting topics was Iceman’s brief run for Jim Crockett. Iceman gives a blow-by-blow account of a locker room meeting which changed the course of his career forever. What did Iceman say to the new booker in front of the entire locker room that led to his departure? Wait until you hear the angle that Iceman proposed that could have been one of the biggest ever. What legendary wrestler backed up Iceman? What was Crockett’s reaction?

Iceman also talks about the decision that changed his career forever. Iceman talks about making a deal with another territory before going to World Class. Wait until you hear about where he was supposed to go and what gimmick he was supposed to take. Even more surprising is the wrestler that told him to stay away from that area because the promoters and bookers couldn’t be trusted. Needless to say, Iceman’s career would have turned out a lot different.

Iceman recounts the excitement of going to World Class. Iceman talks about developing the Iceman Parsons character, his promos, and even who gave him the name Iceman. Iceman tells a fun story about how he head heat with Fritz on his first night. That all changed quickly. Iceman recalls his debut match and the immediate reaction from the office. What did Kerry, Fritz, and the Freebirds say when he walked back through the curtain?

Iceman is not shy in talking about all of the controversies surrounding World Class. Iceman talks openly about the Von Erich family’s issues. Iceman may upset with some people when he talks about who is really at fault for the boy’s problems. Iceman puts the blame on one person and it isn’t who you think it is. This is an intense moment, and it must be seen to be believed. Iceman also talks about the night Tommy Rogers gave Kevin CPR in the ring. You won’t believe what Fritz’s reaction was after the match.

Iceman also talks about all of the other controversies linked to the World Class area. Iceman gives his thoughts on Gino’s passing with new information. Iceman talks a lot about the late Chris Adams and his issues. Iceman also talks about Bruiser Brody’s death in Puerto Rico. Iceman gives a reason behind it that has never been revealed anywhere. Iceman also talks about the night he and Brody almost went at it. Iceman also talks about the problems with abuse and how he was able to avoid those pitfalls.

This is one interview you do not want to miss. Whether you are a fan of Iceman’s or just want to hear some great stories, this interview has it all. This is one interview that will be talked about for a long time in our offices. It is with great honor and pleasure that RF Video brings to you the newest shoot interview with Iceman King Parsons.
