RF VIDEO brings you another shoot interview with a veteran in the wrestling business, Paul Diamond who has worked most of the territorial promotions thru out the mid 80’s until the now. We cover his run from TX, Georgia, AWA, Memphis, Continental, WWF, WCW, Japan and ECW!!!!!

From his early start as a singles wrestler to his incredible run as one half of the legendary tag team with Pat Tanaka, Bad Company, Paul shoot for the first time ever!!!

Paul talked about how he got started in wrestling down in Florida after a long successful career in pro soccer. You will hear how he was brought into wrestling by the Malenko family. How did Paul make it to Texas All Star Wrestling and we talk to him about his initial relationship with Shawn Michaels that led to a life time friendship with HBK or did it?

We talk all about his early run and all of his major programs before he got to the AWA and his stories were awesome and really funny. His AWA stuff before he got to the WWF were also really informative stories. He talked all about his long time relationship with Shawn Michaels since they broke in together down in TX and worked all over the place including the AWA, WWF and also when Paul booked for Shawns promotion in TX the TWA. We talked all about his tag team work in the WWF, his Max Moon gimmick and his brief WCW run. I was in ECW when Paul Diamond was there the entire time so I knew what to ask him about the land of Extreme. Remember the exploding ring match in ECW with Bad Company? Who could forget that fiasco and we got Paul’s reactions to that horrible gimmick match that had the epic fail. What happened to Paul after ECW and how did he hook up with HBK to book and run his company? What happened to their relationship down in TX and why was there trouble between the two. What heat did Paul have with Rudy Boy Gonzalez? Do you want drug talk, there is plenty of that. You will hear how drugs almost ruined his liefe. Do you want to hear stories about ring rats down in Memphis? Want hilarious road stories with ribs that Curt Henning and Mr Fuji, there is that!!!!

The Paul Diamond shoot was a shoot for the masses and especially if your a old school fan your going to want to own this DVD.
