Shoot interviews in UK Fan Forum Posted April 19, 2012 · Report reply I completely disagree about Sean Oliver, I think he's an excellent host. I haven't seen any signs that he's 'trying to get himself over' but that's the problem with anything like this relating to wrestling - there will always be a pocket of people that claim that the host is trying to get him or herself over. In Oliver's case, it's nonsense and I think you should back that point up with some evidence, presuming you have any. He never dominates these interviews. He always takes a back seat, he always lets the wrestlers get their points across without interrupting, he doesn't grandstand questions. I don't really know what more you could ask of him as a host. As for the people who send in video questions, sometimes they're pretty funny, sometimes they're not. But usually they get a decent question out there no matter how they're farting around. Oliver's range of shoots and programming is far and away, for me, the best of its kind in wrestling, and the range of different shows he now has is impressive. The timeline stuff is a particularly good idea with the Cornette, Ivory and Shane Douglas ones being excellent that I've seen. You only actually realise just how good it is when you compare it to the RF Video stuff, which really is the absolute pits. I'm guess the funny faces he pulls after questions have something to do with it, it's like if someone says something he knows his audience won't agree with he can pull a funny face and confirm for the viewer that they're are in the right and not the person being interviewed. Youshoot's are a mixed bag though, if they cut out the sleaze and the dribblers they would be more well received I think, but I suppose any business model needs to cater to their audience, and they've done just that, I mean why else would you want to interview one half of PG13 a small time regional tag team if not to satisfy THAT crowd. The Russo one looks interesting but much like the Dixie Carter one, it's not going to deliver the showing that fans want because much like Dixie herself Russo is too smart to sit there and look foolish and like Dixie was he'll be well versed and able to put his points across well, and this won't be the Nixon/Frost of the wrestling world like so many are hoping it will be. It'll probably be a popular sell though for Kayfabe Commentaries, and a decent watch for us so it's a win-win situation for all round.
