You say, Ok what’s so interesting about that, but throw into the mix one $1,000,000 from an outside entity with the idea of not cooperating with his fellow WWF Superstars live on PPV, and basicly shooting on the worlds most famous professional wrestlers, making the wrestlers and the companies a complete mockery and than one day later jumping ship.

RF VIDEO sat down with Dan Severn last night in Atlantic City for a shoot interview that went almost 4 hours long. Dan told us as soon as the interview was done that he never has done a interview as in depth as this one. We asked him everything you would ever want to know about the shoot fighting world. We talked about how he got started as a amatuer wrestler in grade school. What he went thru to make it as a college superstar wrestler. Hoe did Dan enter the world of pro wrestling and shoot fights. What was it like to compete in the UFC for the first time. We talk about all of his fights in depth and what they were like. We talk about his fued with Ken Shamrock and why they never got along. How he almost could have killed men in the UFC. The UFC, Pride and MMA stories are amazing. This was the first time we ever really did a shoot interview with anyone that took us inside the world on MMA. We talk about his bouts with the Royce, Oleg, and all of the other huge match ups that he had in the UFC. What went on behind the scenes in UFC? Who had legit heat with who and why.

We talk all about drugs in wrestling as well. Dan was super open when talking about his 2 year time in the WWF. He will tell you why he did not last there and how the wrestlers treated him in the back. You will be shocked when you find out what Vince wanted him to change into to. He will go into great detail of all his WWF expeirences.

We also talk all about what Dan is doing these days. There are alot of crazy stories on how many people just want to fight him to make a name. He also makes it clear that he is still the NWA Champion and that nobody ever beat him for that belt. This interview is a must for anyone who loves MMA or shoot fighting as well as pro wrestling.
