Without a doubt, the biggest periods of pro wrestling in this generation were the late 1990s and early part of the decade. WWE and WCW were a part of popular culture as millions tuned in Monday night to see stars from both companies. Rarely did one superstar have the opportunity to make their mark in both companies. One of those talents successfully made her mark on both companies and her name is Debra Marshall.

Debra is one of only a handful of women to have successfully made the transition from one major company to another, in the middle of the Monday Night Wars. Only few can give the perspective from both WCW in its prime and WWE in its prime. Debra Marshall can and does in this exclusive RF Video, Inc. Shoot Interview.

What led to their divorce and how did it impact her future in WCW? Debra answers all of these questions and more.

Did Debra ever regret leaving WCW? Debra addresses all of those questions and more in this exclusive interview.

Debra also married and divorced one of the biggest superstars in the history of the business. How did the romance blossom between Debra and Stone Cold Steve Austin? What was Stone Cold like outside of the ring? You will hear about a side of Stone Cold that has never been told before now. How did this fairy-tale romance turn into a nightmare of abuse for Debra? How do you handle working for a company and trapped in an abusive relationship with the company’s biggest star? Where did Debra go for help? Debra is quite candid and emotional discussing her marria ge and the abuse she incurred at the hands of Steve Austin.

Debra is very emotional when addressing the Chris Benoit family tragedies. Debra knew Nancy and Chris well, and has some really interesting stories about both.
