It is a real honor for RF VIDEO to get to sit down with a true legend in the wrestling business especially someone who not only performed in the wrestling ring but someone who was a booker in a few major wrestling territories.  That person is Eric Embry.  Not only was he a main stay in almost every wrestling territory in the 80′ and 90’s but he was also responsible for some major angles that are still talked about to this day.

Eric has wrestled all over the country and has worked with everyone under the sun.  For the first time ever Eric sits down with RF VIDEO to discuss his entire wrestling career.  His stories are amazing as he was very happy to share some of his fondest memories with us.

This was an incredible interview and if your a fan of the Memphis, Florida, World Class territories your going to love it.  We talked all about the Von Erichs, Puerto Rico, Bruiser Brody murder, drugs, ring rats, Jerry Lawler, USWA vs WCCW feuds and so much more.  If your a fan of Eric this will be one interview you can’t pass up on.  He talkes about all of his major programs and also major angles that he was involved in.  He was super open with us and he did not hold anything back.  We also talked in great detail about southwest champion wrestling and what is was like for him to become the booker of Puerto Rico and Texas with the Von Erichs.
