This weekend, RF VIDEO rolled out the red carpet for international indie superstar C.W. Anderson, and welcomed C.W. to the lavish RF VIDEO Studios to record a shoot interview. This shoot came out so well, we’re not even mad that Anderson took some the finely threaded Egyptian cotton towels from the studio?s bathroom with him when it was over. From the final two years of ECW?s existence, to MLW, to Japan for Zero One, Hustle, and Zero One Max, to the front row of the ECW One Night Stand PPV, yes, CW Anderson has been everywhere and has amazing stories from every one of his stops.

Anderson talked about his entire career as a true journeyman. From working the WWE as a enhancement talent, to being a member of the Dangerous Alliance in ECW, to MLW’s Extreme Horsemen…C.W. has been around. Here?s a man who made Simon Diamond serious, while also engaging in one of the best feuds of the final year of ECW with Tommy Dreamer. The former baseball standout talked about everything but the kitchen sink in this shoot, including stories of masked men, ECW?s drug scene, and being a member of the ANDERSON family of wrestlers. Stories and thoughts on Steve Corino, Ogawa, Low Ki, Candido, Bauer, among others as well as C.W.?s thoughts and perspective on the business today and throughout his career. An extremely insightful shoot brought to you by wrestling?s shoot interview leader, RF VIDEO. You can order this today in the new release section. Here are the ?s that we asked CW Anderson
