Hi all, I just wanted to share this with you as I thought many of you guys here would be interested to see this, it's probably the BEST shoot out there that I have seen, it's incredibly different to how most are and is done with integrity, Rick Martel's Wrestling Shoot has been updated and extended as well as migrated to the RickMartelWWE channel if you would like to check it out.
Rick talks about what happened with Tom Zenk, Shawn Michaels taking the match at Wrestlemania 10 from Rick and other talents, as well as how Shawn asked Rick to travel with to learn the ropes of being a good heel, Rick's take on Dino Bravo's passing.
If you want to add some comments for Rick and the shoot on Youtube, please do, i'm not sure if Rick reads these however it's definitely worthwhile adding some thoughts and views on there as well give the shoot a thumbs up also, however enjoy.
