GORDON SOLIE INTERVIEW
Guest: Andre the Giant
Solie asks Andre his thoughts on WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION The Iron Sheik.
ANDRE: He’s a World Champion who can’t win a match. He has only had one title defense since becoming champion. All the others, against me, he has lost. By disqualification. He knows he cannot beat me.
This brought out the The Iron Sheik!
IRON SHEIK: I can beat you any time!
GORDON SOLIE: With all due respect, Sheik, it seems that every time you step into the ring with the giant here, your goons Volkoff and Zhukov get involved or Blassie gets involved. Are you able to beat Andre one on one?
IRON SHEIK: The Sheik is the most superior athlete in wrestling. I can beat anyone.
ANDRE THE GIANT: Could you beat me in a steel cage?
The fans are going crazy. The Iron Sheik is stalling.
GORDON SOLIE: Well, Sheik, there is the challenge. You and Andre in a Steel Cage for the title!
The Iron Sheik is stalling like crazy. He apparently does not want to answer.
IRON SHEIK: The Iron Sheik can beat you in a cage, out of a cage and in the street! I will put the title on the line in a cage against you but once I win, you cannot challenge me again for the title!
GORDON SOLIE: There you have it Andre, what do you say.
ADREN THE GIANT: Sheik, I am going to take everything from you.
The fans are berserk at this point. Sheik gets in Andre’s face and THE BOLSHEVIKS rush out to pull him back. Andre just smirks down at him as we crash to commercial.
