One of wrestling’s most under-utilized players sat down with RF VIDEO to candidly discuss his buzz-worthy time in Ohio Valley Wrestling along with his controversial character Eugene in WWE. Nick Dinsmore gave us the ins and outs of the long road he took from being an OVW stand-out to unceremoniously walked out of the building to end his WWE stay.

We covered Dinsmore’s entire career, including his cup of coffee in WCW and having a match on Monday Nitro. Nick described how he got booked in WCW and what the backstage atmosphere was like. Dinsmore quickly ended up in Louisville within the WWE developmental system and told us exactly what it was like to learn his craft under Jim Cornette. There are so many great OVW stories that it just doesn’t do them justice to list them all here, but we can say you will hear Nick talk about Kenny Bolin, teaming with Rob Conway, the Pillman Memorial show, Al Snow, Les Thatcher, Danny Davis and much, much more! During Dinsmore’s time in OVW the company was one of the best booked in the country filled with some of the best up-and-coming talents in the business, you will get to hear exactly what it was like to be in Louisville during this exciting period!

Getting called up to WWE is a major day in any wrestler’s life, but after his long and hard battle to prove himself despite his size, what did Dinsmore think of being given the mentally handicapped gimmick of Eugene? This is the first DVD that will give you Dinsmore’s complete and unedited thoughts on this highly controversial character, including what he studied in order to get the gimmick down. Nick also talked about what it was like to work with William Regal, Coach, Christy Hemme, Triple H, Vince McMahon, Ric Flair, Edge, Tajiri, and Eric Bischoff on the main roster.

Everything you ever wanted to know about Nick Dinsmore is covered in this highly entertaining shoot including Nick’s trips to Memphis and Puerto Rico along with his highly publicized overdose that occurred shortly after the death of Eddie Guerrero. Dinsmore described what it was like to read about his fall from grace straight on the WWE website and what the reaction was from the boys in the back. This is one interview you will never forget as Dinsmore covers everything from working with Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania, to giving his thoughts on all the big WWE names both in front of the camera and behind including Mick Foley, John Laurenitis, Shawn Michaels, and Batista!
