In the Ring with Al Snow
Item Number: 00806
There is one wrestler out there who has always been outspoken about how to make it in the wrestling business and to go about it in the right manner. He has done a lot of shoot interviews about these subjects with RF VIDEO but now it's time to actually step food inside the actual ring with him and witness his knowledge as he hands it down to a class of 12 students of the game. Just when you thought you knew all the answers, Al Snow changes the questions!! For the first time ever Al Snow invites you the wrestling fan or upcoming wrestling Inside the Ring with Al Snow.
This DVD is a must have for anyone trying to make it in the wrestling business. Al Snow's world famous seminars have never been caught on tape, that is until now. RFVIDEO filmed a four hour seminar that breaks down the barrier and allows you to really understand the business from an inside view point. This DVD is full of lessons that anyone breaking into the sport should know and understand. Now we are going to allow everyone to watch this totally open and honest shoot style seminar to make it out for the masses to enjoy. So you think you know how to be a wrestler. You think you know how to put together a good match. What works in the ring. Do you think you know how to get heat? Think you know how to get yourself over? Do you think you make a good babyface or a heel? Can you really cut a good promo? Do you understand how to move around the ring? Do you really even know what a finish is?
There are all the questions that you will hear Al go over with this class as he has them do actual matches in front of him and then he critiques each guy and tells them what they were doing right or wrong. Most of today's matches did not go the way that Al had wanted which makes it for a great DVD as he really Al open up and give some of the hardest taught lessons that needed to be taught to get this class to the next level.
We have done other Inside the Ring DVD's, but this one is the most informative of all of them. You get to listen to Al talk about what the WWE is looking for when they hire a guy and how they can make money with you. What happens if you cant work or get yourself over, well Al gives about 60 minutes of this DVD series some of his best stories from behind the curtains in WWE and tells you exactly what they are looking for, and how they will make money with you if you have the "it" factor.
The 60 minutes mini interview with the class before the three hour workout session is worth the price of the DVD itself. Never before in any of Al's shoots do you get to hear what the WWE office is looking for and how the agents handle their business with the wrestlers to better the product. What really goes on in FCW if you are hired by the WWE and what they want you to get out of going into that system.
These are just a few of the topics that we talked about today on this 4 hour DVD
**How to get yourself over with the office of the WWE and how to get over with the fans
**How Dave Melzter is one of the best workers out there
**How to be a good worker
**What to do to get a job in the WWE
**What to do in your dark match with Funaki if you get that chance to make it
**Talk about how the WWE is looking for new talent to get over
**Why does the Undertaker really take time off
**Talk about finishes in wrestling
**How wrestlers relate to the fans and how to get over so the fans want to be you
**Why it is stupid for guys to work stiff or the strong style uses Roddy Strong as an example and why its bad for the business
**How to reteach the audience and make them believe in your finish
**How to make someone look good if they are smaller than you
Then we actually went into the ring and did another 3 hours of workout footage which you will learn:
**How to move around the ring slower
**How to make it look like a shoot and not a work
**How to sell a basic move...
**Why a Babyface must deliver in his match what ever he talked about in his promos
**Why the Babyface must always be aggressive and always go for the pin and always move forward
**What is a finish
**How to get heat spots
**How to tell a story by selling
**Less is more
**How the heel dictates the match and how the babyface only cares about winning
There is so much more to this DVD and it's by far the most open video ever filmed by us. If you think Tough Enough took you inside the ring you have not seen anything until you have seen "Inside the Ring with Al Snow" as this DVD is a blockbuster.
Al Snow's best dvd!

Here are the highlights:
1)The first 43 minutes is a question and answer session.Al insults everyone in attendence and the wrestlers on the indy scene repeatedly about what they are doing wrong,but also gives a lot of explanations and details about their mistakes.
2)Tells a great story about an indy event where all the wrestlers were worried about what a 13 year old would blog about them.
3)Tells and explains who the greatest worker in the wrestling business is and it's not Vince McMahon,Hogan,Austin,Rock or Triple H.
4)Each match starts out with a 30 second promo by each guy and then they have about a 6 minute match.Al goes into detail about what they are doing wrong in the promo and match.
5)There's a guy with a goatee,crew cut and dark blue hoodie who is a big mouth douchebag,he is always in front of the camera and always tries to get the attention on himself when Al is talking by making stupid faces,jumping,rubbing his hands and sitting on the apron like he's Raven.
6)The fat guy in the first match has a ring name that will either make you laugh or gross you out.
7)The emo goth guy in the second match does an unintentionally hilarious promo.
8)Al gives great explanations with lots of details on comebacks,finishes and telling a story inside the ring.
9)Al makes a priceless comment about the Twilight movies.
10)He makes another great comment about one of the students and his light up pen.
11)The big mouth douchebag from before does his best to act like a moron at 1:18:56 and 1:43:13.
12)The referee from the first match kept saying "what do you say?" every 2 seconds even though the only two moves of the match were a headlock and a dropkick.He even threatened to suspend one of the wrestlers for 3 months without pay for pretending to bite his opponent.
13)The last match was the best.
14)Al Snow explains what the McMahons will do to you if you don't have the match they want you to have.
I highly recommend this dvd for everyone!

Al Snow is great. He really wants to tell a story in the ring and lets the younger guys know that. Never realized how smart Al Snow is about a match and what goes into a match. Really learned alot from this DVD. I really think I'm going to enjoy watching wrestling more after seeing this.

Great DVD for anyone looking to break into the business and learn basic yet essential and effective ring psychology. The Al behind closed doors is not the goofy character you're used to seeing on Raw in the late 90's.
The first section features Al repeatedly and descriptively talking about the importance of reaching stardom and making money, NOT having the 'best match' on every card. The second half of the video is where Snow works with indy wrestlers with both their in ring promos and actual matches.
I found both sections of the DVD to be very entertaining and extremely detailed. Al does not breeze by explaining how the matches he saw frankly fell short of what they could have been. He also critiques the business while speaking passionately about how to bring the business back to what it once was.
If you are thinking about getting into pro wrestling this is a DVD where you need to hang onto Al's every word. You'll still enjoy it if you are a die hard fan looking to see a veteran's perspective on what it takes to make it in the business. All in all a quality video. Thanks Rob!
