One of wrestling’s most controversial wrestlers in recent memory is none of than Chris Masters, and RF VIDEO was lucky enough to sit down with Masters to discuss his recent firing along with many other subjects in our latest exclusive shoot interview! Chris walked us through his daily schedule in Ohio Valley Wrestling and compared what it was like working for Bill DeMott and Lance Storm. You’ll be able to hear a whole bunch of OVW stories as Masters talked his relationship with Jim Cornette and Paul Heyman as well as all the guys that were there during his stay including Brent Albright and Carlito.

Getting the fast push to the main stage, Masters told us what he felt working his first dark match with Bob Holly and how Triple H and Shawn Michaels immediately took him under their wing. We got the entire scoop on the creation of the Masterpiece gimmick and what type of pressure Chris was under to maintain his look. Masters described his friendship outside the ring with Carlito and Randy Orton along with giving one story after another about their time on the road together. This is the only place where you’ll find out what kind of trouble Masters got into with Orton, including a hilarious story in which Masters and Orton did not see a cop chasing them for two miles and finally pulled over to find guns drawn on them. What was it like being pushed so hard so fast and working with all the top talent including Triple H, HBK, and the Undertaker? Who did Masters have heat with in the locker room? Which match does Masters, to this day, constantly relive in his mind? And why? This is the one interview in which you’ll get the inside dope, straight from the source!

We talked about Masters’ physique and what it took to maintain, and this brought up the subject of steroids in wrestling, drug testing, and being sent to rehab. In an infamous skit, Triple H described a book by Chris Masters being about how to lose 50 pounds in six weeks, and we got Chris to talk about his shrinking and how the mass got put back on so quickly. Masters did not hide behind anything and was completely open, even offering his opinion on the effects of steroids in the Chris Benoit tragedy. What did Chris think about the Masterlock challenge? Who chose Bobby Lashley to be the first person to break the Masterlock? What did Chris feel about selling for older guys such as Ric Flair and Jerry Lawler? You’ll get the answers to these questions along with a first person perspective on what it is like to be pulled into the WWE machine, eaten up, and spit out. Chris even talked about all his problems with JBL and how he stood up to JBL during an overseas tour.
