Every indy wrestler that steps inside the squared circle has one dream and that is to make it to the big time. One wrestler in particular by the name of Michael Tarver did exactly that. It was not a easy path to make it to his dream of being a WWE superstar and in this exclusive RF VIDEO shoot interview Michael discusses how be made his journey from small indy shows to appearing on national TV to be apart of one of the hottest angles of all time when Nexus attacked John Cena and destroyed the entire ring side area.

As the interview starts we talk to him about how he got his start in the business and you will find out if he was a long time wrestling fan growing up and how he broke into the industry. We talk about all of the indy companies that he worked with like NWA East, PWX, AIW and CAPW. For the first time ever Michael tells his side of the story on what happened in the incident involving another pro wrestler Gregory Iron. What exactly happened in the match and what was the fall out after everything went down. This gets pretty personal at this time as he goes into incredible details on every detail and his thoughts on other people that might have got involved in this.
We talk about his time in PWU in Philly and how he first got into WWE to work as an extra during the JBL/Chris Jericho segment. When he finally got excepted to be apart of the WWE he spent a lot of time in Florida working with Billy Kidman, Steve Keirn, Joey Matthews and Dusty Rhodes. He was known as one of the top guys that could cut a promo. Hear how he impressed Vince McMahon with his mic skills and how that got him to help talk to other students at the time to help them with their promos. He was in the same class with a lot of the younger talent and has stories on a lot of the guys that you see on TV today.

When he got first called up to TV to be apart of NXT we discuss the impact on how that might have changed his role in the company. We talk about his match with Daniel Bryan on NXT and for the first time ever you will hear how the formation came about and more specifically about the closed door super kfabed meeting they had before one of the biggest angles took place where they laid out John Cena to close Monday Night Raw which got tons of press. What were his thoughts on Bryan getting fired for choking out Michael Cole? Did he like Wade Barrett as the leader?

We talk all about what really happened behind the scenes with John Cena and himself and what led to the heat. You will hear his thoughts on his groin injury and if he blames John Cena. What happened once both men were behind curtains and what went down between the two.

This interview is very personal at times as we talk about some other issues that he went thru as he touched on the subject of suicide and that is all I will say as you have to watch that part to see why he almost ended his life. If you are a WWE fan you will love this interview because he talks all about the current scene and has worked with everyone in the WWE. He has stories on CM Punk, Bret Hart, John Cena, HHH, Vince Mcmahon, Sheamaus and so many more.
