“They’re not chanting boring…they’re chanting Doring!”

Everyone at RF VIDEO is excited to announce a brand new shoot interview that was more fun and entertaining than anything that we had expected! This person has never done a shoot interview and promised us that he would hold absolutely nothing back and come out firing with both guns blazing. He was one half of the final ECW Tag Team Champions. A graduate of the legendary ECW House of Hardcore. Part of both the original ECW and the WWE-run version. We are talking about none other than Danny Doring!!

Trained by Taz, Bubba Ray Dudley and Perry Saturn, Doring earned his stripes at the House of Hardcore and quickly made his way to the main ECW roster in ’97. Doring’s original gimmick was that of a wrestler who used extremely non-exciting holds and refused to do high flying moves due to “vertigo.” An instant heat magnate, Doring convinced himself and his cult fanbase that – when the chorus of “boring” went throughout the arena – everyone was really chanting “Doring!”

Doring’s most famous gimmick was that of a womanizer and tag team partner of fellow House of Hardcore graduate Roadkill. The two were wrestling’s original Odd Couple and were originally managed by Miss Congeniality until she went on to later fame in WWE as Lita. Roadkill and Doring quickly became one of ECW’s most talked about tag teams and ended up as the last tag team champions the company ever had. In fact, history will note that Doring and Roadkill were permitted to keep their title belts in lieu of the fees they were owed during ECW’s bankruptcy. Only in wrestling folks!

After ECW, Doring went onto the indy scene, worked Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, and then went back to ECW when McMahon introduced v2.0. Our THREE HOUR interview with Danny was beyond amazing and we got so many wonderful backstage stories. Doring gave his uncensored view of Paul Heyman and why he believed Heyman hated him to the point of working against Doring in WWE’s version of ECW. We got the rat stories you all love. Crazy drug stories. Hilarious rib stories. You will get an inside look at the old ECW locker room like you never have before. A guy that has traveled with Raven and Sandman along with partying with all the big names in ECW has seen and done it all, and lived to tell about it! You will hear about all the wrestlers who had heat with Doring and Nova, including an especially interesting story that involves Jasmine St. Claire and the Blue Meanie which went all the way to the ECW One Night Stand PPV.

From putting up the ring to working all the big shows, Doring has had his hands in every part of the original ECW and gave us tons of info that was just incredible. If you liked Forever Hardcore or the Rise and Fall of ECW, then this is a DVD for you as Doring gives an even greater depth and appreciation to a company that literally changed wrestling forever. This is yet another RF VIDEO exclusive that you will not want to miss!
