What is it like to be in the ring with one of the greatest of all-time in his prime? Sam Houston has the stories and it is with great honor that he shares them with us in the newest RF Video Shoot Interview.

Another would be that he is part of one of wrestling’s most controversial families. Another reason may be his brushes with the law.

Sam has some classic stories about one of wrestling’s most polarizing figures, Dusty Rhodes. Sam traveled with Dusty and has a ton of great road stories. Sam tells an absolute classic never told before here or anywhere else. Sam rode with Dusty after Dusty’s interview with Jim Crockett. Dusty didn’t think it went well and what happens next is worth the price of the shoot alone. What happened and how did the Dream wind up with a lot of egg on his face?

Sam also talks about working for Jim Crockett Promotions at the height of its success. What was it like to wrestle Ric Flair in his prime? What was it like to party with the Horsemen? Sam talks about all of his legendary opponents including Abdullah the Butcher, Tully Blanchard, and Superstar Graham. How did so much potential get wasted by placed in Central States?

Was it a good or a bad thing being in the business together? How did Sam’s job cost Baby Doll a spot? What went wrong and how did things end so badly between the tw o? Did any booker’s jealousy cost Sam a push?

Sam also talks all about his brother Jake. Are they close? Was there ever an attempt to use their relationship together in the WWF? Sam talks about Jake’s psychology and where it comes from. Did his brother ever get him a break? What does he think of his brother today? What did he think of his brother’s portrayal in Beyond the Mat?

Sam also addresses his demons and is very outspoken about his problems with alcohol. Does he think it is hereditary? How does his problems compare to his brother Jake’s? Did it ever cost him a job?
