Oates has a story of when one of those matches got very heated as The Iron Sheik and Ricky Hunter were supposed to work a shoot-style match. Situations unfolded that made the match a real shoot between two very skilled wrestlers.</p> <p>Find out what happened and who won&nbsp;in this edition of the Portland Wrestlecast.&nbsp;</p> <p>{radioShow free/PWC39JERRYOATES2.mp3} {membership 4}&nbsp;</p>
