I typically attend comic conventions to get interviews with WWE legends, as they typically end up appearing at these kinds of events. One in particular had the Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase and Virgil.
I had wanted to interview Ted for a while because I admired his body of work, particularly in the WWF. He was, and in many cases still is, a household name.
As you will see in the video, when we began the interview, Virgil decided to take it upon himself to "interview bomb" the piece (sort of like a "photo bomb," where people steal the spotlight in a picture from the desired subject). DiBiase, seemingly having been through this before, dismisses Virgil. You can definitely see the look of "will you please stop doing this during my interviews?" in his face.
The funny thing is, as much as Virgil wanted to get in this interview, when I approached Virgil afterwards, he declined the interview!
Yes, the great Virgil said no. It's not that I got denied that I'm baffled at, it's how much he wanted to get on camera in the first place, but apparently not in his own time. I even mentioned during the DiBiase interview that I would get to him shortly. Maybe he was upset he was going second. Or maybe it was this.
