In mid-1999, Ventura reappeared on WWF television during his term as Governor of Minnesota, acting as the special guest referee for main event of SummerSlam held in Minneapolis.  Ventura would continue his relationship with the WWF by performing commentary for Vince McMahon's short-lived XFL .  On the March 20, 2003 episode of SmackDown! , Ventura appeared in a taped interview to talk about the match between McMahon and Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania XIX .  Less than a year later, he would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on March 13, 2004 and the following night at WrestleMania XX , he approached the ring to interview Donald Trump , who had a front row seat at the event.  Trump affirmed that Ventura would receive his moral and financial support were he to ever reenter the world of politics. Alluding to the 2008 election , Ventura boldly announced that "In 2008, maybe we oughta put a wrestler in the White House ". On the June 11, 2007 episode of Raw , Ventura appeared to give comments about McMahon.  Ventura was guest host on the November 23, 2009 episode of Raw, during which he retained his heel persona by siding with the number one contender Sheamus over WWE Champion John Cena . This happened while he confronted Cena about how it was unfair that Cena always got a title shot in the WWE, while Ventura never did during his WWE career. After that, Sheamus attacked Cena and put him through a table. Ventura then made the match a Table match at TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs . During the show, for the first time in nearly 20 years, McMahon joined Ventura at ringside to provide match commentary together.
Another awesome interview Tim. Love Walter’s book’s and enjoyed listen to you discuss all their attributes. My only comment is while retrieving show notes, I always wish for an easier access to show notes and podcasts. Would be great to see a clean list of all shows by number in a spreadsheet or table with a simple icon to the right with show notes. Me like many of your listeners would pray a premium for this access, especially when we are students of your interviews, blogs and podcasts! Thank you for constantly perfecting your craft through interesting questions. You have a gift for pulling it out of your guests so we can see and use the process. God Bless!
Efficiently signalling the changes between the narrative’s shifting time periods, director of photography Alwin H Küchler (with whom Boyle worked closely on the underrated Sunshine ) moves from the grainy texture of 16mm stock through the rich gloss of 35mm to the too-sharp resolution of digital, the film’s face evolving with its products. At the centre of this evolution is Michael Fassbender, who achieves the extraordinary feat of making Jobs not only believable but tolerable, breathing life into a character less able to mimic human responses than his misfiring machines. Both Christian Bale and Leonardo DiCaprio were once earmarked for this role, but it’s hard to imagine either of them matching Fassbender’s capacity to engage and repel simultaneously. We are at once appalled by Jobs’ denial of his daughter, yet somehow swayed by Sorkin’s sympathetic suggestion that his own adoption was the traumatic key to both his success and failure.
