It was 10 years ago that RF Video sat down with Konnan in his mansion in California and now once again in Los Angeles, Konnan takes the hot seat to follow up with RF Video this time talking about his entire tenure in TNA and what it is like to return to AAA in Mexico.  Don’t worry we cover the entire current scene of pro wrestling like WWE, TNA, ROH and so many other companies as well.Konnan has went through a lot in recent years, besides his raw deal in TNA which we talk about in great detail, he talks about his battle with drug problems and how his health problems affected him over the last few years.  What really happened in the locker room with Juventud Guerrera and Jack Evans and how did Konnan react to what Juvi said about him in recent interviews?  You will hear all about what it was like to work in Mexico when he came back as the head writer and all of the talent that gave him problems.  Want to hear about why Teddy Hart left Mexico well this interview spills all the dirt.Konnan talks in great detail about his entire TNA run and what it was like to work there with the people in charge.  He gives his thoughts and opinions on Dixie Carter, Jim Cornette, Vince Russo and all the other major power players that are calling the shots up there till this day.  We talk about all of the problems he had in TNA and nothing gets left out.  What really happened in ROH with him when I booked him back in the day for my company?  What does he think of Jeremy Borash?  Did he get along with Raven? Who did he try to get TNA to hire to be apart of LAX and why it never happened.


Konnan is very close with so many of the WWE talents and he gives us behind the scene details on what they thought about the Eddy Guerrero passing and the Chris Benoit tragedy.  What happened when Konnan tried to get a job in the WWE and who snubbed him?

Konnan is another one of those guys who is super smart in our business and is way ahead of his time.  His outlooks on the business during this interview are right on the money.  If your a fan of wrestling and want to hear so many amazing backstage stories without any sugar coating, I would highly recommend this shoot interview!
