I really do not know where to start. I get asked this question alot, Who was your best shoot interview with? What is your top 3 shoots of all time? When asked that question I usually say Roddy Piper, Tully Blanchard or Road Warriors. There are just to many to choose from. But on Saturday night we now have someone who has climed into our top 3 shoots of all time spots. Now I know your thinking, I am just saying this so you go ahead and buy this interview. That is not the case at all. When we sat down with Bad News Brown or Bad News Allen I did not know what to expect. What we got was one of our top three shoots of all time. I actually had to stop the tape at one point and tell him how amazing the interview was going.

Three hours later I was blown away and so was the rest of the RF VIDEO staff. I will put it all on the line and say he is now one of our top three shoots of all time. He has some of the best road stories of all time and we never even heard them from anyone before. If your a fan of New Japan, you will love this as Bad News was there with all the top dogs and the behind the scene stories of Abby, Brody, Hansen, Tiger Jet Singh are all amazing. Find out how he almost got into a fist fight with Andre the Giant on a bus and why Hulk Hogan ducked thinking a gun was involved. What happened in a bar in Sapporo when Tom Prichard got so drunk he got naked and the Somoans started a bar room brawl…..Why Bob Orton left Japan after the Yakuza legit wanted to kill him…. You will hear so many classic stories from Calgary Stampede with Dynamite Kid, Davey Boy and Bret Hart. Finally after three shoot interviews with Bret Hart talking bad about Bad News, we now have the response from Bad News about Bret Hart. Bad News talks about why they never got along and its a great story.

Why did Andre the Giant take a crap on him in Mexico….The WWE stories are a must see as Bad News has seen it all in the locker room and held nothing back..Why him and Roddy Piper had legit heat and why his program was so short….What happened with his meeting with Vince and how Bad News did not back down. His first hand account of the fight with Dynamite and Jacques. What happened when Randy Savage stiffed him in a match….What happened in Florida when Bad News confronted a green Lex Luger….The WWF stories are so amazing and there are so many first time stories on this DVD. As a huge WWF fan I was sitting there marking out.

In the world of professional wrestling, only one man could be referred to as BAD NEWS.

Traveling around the globe, from Inoki and New Japan, the Hart Family in Stampede, south of the border to Mexico, to facing a half black body painted Roddy Piper at WrestleMania VI, Bad News Allen has seen the wrestling business like few others. RF VIDEO is proud to present a shoot interview like none you have seen before as Bad News Allen sat down and talked about his entire career. Allen went into stories that even we and I thought we had seen it all have never heard. This is seriously one of the top three greatest shoots RF VIDEO has ever taken part of as Bad News had one story after another that were simply amazing to listen to. Allen traveled through the back pages of his career and went into vivid detail about everything, including how Cowboy Bob Orton was almost murdered in Japan and exposing some of the truth on two of the cult stories about the 1980s, Tom Magee, WWEs lost hope, and of course the story about Andre losing his bowels IN THE RING! That story alone, if you have never heard it, is worth the price of the DVD. Bad News lives up to his gimmick as guys like Roddy Piper, Dusty Rhodes and Dr. D David Shultz are buried in a manner that is nothing less than shocking. You want Bret Hart, Dynamite Kid, and Davey Boy Smith stories from their development in Stampede to their rise in the WWE, you got em here!

This is a great look back at the “decade of decadence” as Bad News made his name in three historic promotions during this time. You’ll get all the dirt on New Japan, Stampede and the then-WWF. All of the icons of the ’80s are talked about on here, and Bad News doesnt hold back and this without a doubt is one of the finest RF Video shoots ever as he teed off on so many legends! Lou Thesz, Billy Robinson, Riki Choshu, Hulk Hogan, Judo Gene Lebell, Kevin Sullivan, Brian Pillman,Randy Savage, Brutis Beefcake, Larry Cameron, Pat Patterson, Vader, Rick Steamboat, Tiger Jeet Singh, Abdullah the Butcher, Dynamite Kid, Bruiser Brody, Lex Luger, Owen Hart, Bret, Antonio Inoki, Hansen, Dick Murdoch, Davey Boy Smith, JYD, Randy Savage, Hercules, Chris Benoit, both Vince McMahons, Jason the Terrible, Peter Maivia, Akira Maeda, Wahoo McDaniel…these are just some of the cast of many names we give Bad News on this shoot. For fans of Stampede pro wrestling, and for fans of early New Japan, this shoot gives it all in telling stories and if that isnt enough, you’ll hear about an incident between Bad News and the legendary Andre the Giant which almost resulted in legit fight over Andre’s dropping the “N” bomb. What are you waiting for?! Over two and half hours of one of the most entertaining shoots ever filmed, without a dull moment to be found!
