Hannibal and Billy Jack Haynes Clip

Why was Hannibal so condescending and disrespectful to Billy Jack Haynes? I know Billy Jack is crazy but did he deserve to get treated like this? Is there a backstory or something that could put this into context? I usually enjoy Hannibal's interviews. Billy Jack was polite and complimentary at the start too. Would Hannibal have questioned Billy Jack like this 20 years ago?

Would he"ve disrespected Billy in his real prime/ 80's circa I doubt it.

Re: Hannibal and Billy Jack Haynes Clip

That interview has put me off Hannibal.
Billy Jack is a legend and he could still take him now, I saw a different interview the other day where BJH talks about his upcoming autobiography, now THAT will be one hell of a book. Long live The Master of the Full Nelson

and %**k Hannibal

Re: Hannibal and Billy Jack Haynes Clip

I've only watched a few of Hannibal's clips but this pretty much soured me on watching anymore.


I'm not even a big fan of BJH, as I think he's a bit "out there" but that's perception. As a viewer, if I think that, fine. But, as an interviewer, it's in poor taste to attack the credibility of the subject, as you're reinforcing your personal opinion to the viewers. Respect factor aside, it seems like a moronic way to conduct an interview, one that you're clearly hoping to monetize.


What's even worse is Hannibal is "one of the boys". I don't even feel bad for him anymore.

Re: Hannibal and Billy Jack Haynes Clip

I read through the YouTube comments. Hannibal mentions he doesn't appreciate BJH telling lies about wrestlers. OK, I get that. But what did he expect to happen when he accosted a broken and broken down 65 year old man with the intent to degrade him on camera? Was his clip. He edited what he wanted us to see. It put Hannibal in a very negative light. Hannibal made BJH sympathetic.

It's a shame. As I've said I've always enjoyed Hannibal. This seemed out of character to me from what I knew. Everyone makes mistakes. It would be nice to know why though.

Re: Hannibal and Billy Jack Haynes Clip

Here are some of Hannibal's comments to basic criticisms of his interview.

Quote:
He actually does need to get on Hep C medication or it's going to kill him like it did Ivan Koloff. He should take my advice on that before it's too late. For your other comments I'm the one with nearly 70 million views in 5 years as an interviewer, I'll take advice from people doing better than me but otherwise I could care less what people think and I'll do what I want.
Quote:
It's unfair for him to publicly spread total bs about other wrestlers.
Quote:
I'm guessing you've never seen all the videos out there of him spreading lies and defaming people left right and center. He was the leader of the WWE Lawsuit that got thrown out of court as well.
Quote:
He doesn’t deserve the same respect as them for going around spreading seriously defaming untrue stories about people.

Re: Hannibal and Billy Jack Haynes Clip

Saw this yesterday . Think he tried to make BJH look stupid but it just made Hannibal look like a jackass - rude disrespectful and unwarranted in the circumstances of promoting an event.
Never heard of this Hannibal before and have no interest in seeing him again after this performance.

Re: Hannibal and Billy Jack Haynes Clip

I was always a fan of Billy Jack Haynes back in the day. Some of his stories are hard to believe, but at least I can respect what he has to say, whether it's truth or not. I don't even know this Hannibal guy, but after seeing this, I have no desire to pursue anything he's done any further. I feel like Haynes was very respectful to him until he just started being a douche. Then, when Haynes called him out on it, all of the sudden he doesn't want to talk anymore. It's humorous.

Re: Hannibal and Billy Jack Haynes Clip

Hannibal is a piece of shit human being. Always tries to stir shit up in interviews. Thinks he is some kind of a huge success thereby making him an expert/wrestling historian but he couldn't make it to even TNA. More than that it is just his condescending attitude and hypocrisy that pisses me off.

You are a fuckin interviewer and not a judge you idiot.
