    We travel back to 1998 for Big Van Vader's very first shoot interview. We hear about his upbringing in the mean streets of Los Angeles, his gridiron success in college, his Super Bowl experience, what gave him the itch to start wrestling, his training, working with stiff monsters like Stan Hansen and Bruiser Brody, AWA payoffs, being courted by Inoki and Baba and more! I added as much relevant video footage as possible to help capture Vader's story.

    Which interview with Patera is the one where he says that his heel persona swayed the jury and they should have gone easier on him because of his Olympic past, regarding the McDonald's incident? is it the ROH one or is it a shoot done by someone other than ROH or RF Video?
