While many wrestling fans don’t know the name Mike Shaw, they certainly will remember some of the memorable characters Shaw has portrayed in his “illustrious” career. Norman the Lunatic. Solomon Grundy. Friar Ferguson. Trucker Norm. Bastian Booger. Makham Singh. These personalities and many more were played by Shaw during his time all across the wrestling landscape including Mexico, Stampede, WCW and the WWF. Now, Mike Shaw and all of his characters sit down with RF VIDEO for a very exciting and informative shoot interview covering his entire career!

Mike Shaw has wrestled all over the world, from South Africa to the frozen tundra of Canada and we grilled him on each territory. Shaw shares with us his memories of wrestling legends such as Gene Siniski and Stu Hart before going in-depth on his contemporaries like Owen Hart and Brian Pillman. Shaw’s WCW area is covered in-depth, answering each and every question you could possibly have concerning a man who not only came to the ring with a teddy bear in his Norman persona, but also had a series of hard hitting matches with Cactus Jack. Shaw also compares the savage Singh gimmick he played in Stampede compared to the mentally retarded Normal character in WCW. Shaw talks about he politics in the WCW locker room while also giving the dirt on many of wrestling’s top personalities of that era, including Ric Flair, Terry Funk, tag team partner “The Juicer” Art Barr, and Paul Heyman. No shoot interview would be complete without Shaw discussing his legendary Bastian Booger character, including his thoughts on why Booger got over as a face. Shaw also gives us his perspective on the current scene of wrestling!
