RF VIDEO sat down with Danny Davis, who can actually say he has done everything in the pro wrestling business from setting up the rings, being apart of WWF ring crew, being a referee only to turn heel and become part of the Hart Foundation stable with Jimmy Hart. Danny Davis now for the first time ever sits down with RF VIDEO to discuss his long time stay in the world of the WWF and pro wrestling.

You will hear how Danny Davis paid his dues by getting his first break into the WWF during the early 80’s and being around all of the long time vets. How did this young man get to be apart of the ring crew to being able to wear a mask and calling himself Mr X to face long time ring veterans like Bruno Sammartino, Perdro Morales and sharing the locker room with all of the legends like Muraco, Snuka, Backland, Valentine, Albano, Blassie, Samoans and all the legends of the early 80’s. Danny not only got to wrestle some of these huge names but was also able to be a ref for their matches. You can be sure that he has tons of locker room stories from the early 80’s that he has never told before until now. He was pulling double duty at times where he would wrestle under the mask and than come back out later to be a ref. How much training did he really have to be a wrestler and why did some wrestlers hand pick him to work with him in the ring?

What was it like when the WWF went national and Vince started to bring in all the stars from the territories like Roddy Piper, Dr D David Shultz, Paul Orndorff and of course the Hulkster Hulk Hogan. How did Vince change over time and what did he see behind the scenes during the big boom. How did drugs and alcohol come into play and what was his vice to deal with all of the travel?

Once again Danny was there for the next crop of superstars during the mid 80’s like Randy Savage, Bulldogs, Hart Foundation, Big John Stuff, JYD, Jim Duggan, Sheik, Koko Ware, Jake Roberts, Steele, and everyone in between. His big break in the WWE came when he turned heel which all started during the infamous cage match between Hogan and Orndorff. You will hear how the gimmick took off and why he was paired with the Hart Foundation. How much heat did he have with the fans, his memories of doing Pipers Pits, how the death of Joey Marella effected him.

Danny was also involved with some major angles with Jake Roberts, and got to work Wrestlemania 3, King of the Ring 1987 and SNME’s. He was a guy that was apart of every TV taping and was on the road full time and again was around the WWE during its prime years of its expansion. His stories from his perspective are very entertaining.

Who is the only guy in the business that he had a issue with and what happened when he confronted him? If your a huge WWF fan from the 80’s your going to love his stories because we talked about every major superstar that was there during his run. Make sure you purchase this or Danny might look the other way when your getting choked in the ropes!!!
