RF Video just finished filming one of the most entertaining shoots in the last ten years. RF Video sat down with former ECW and WWE star, Balls Mahoney. Balls taped up the fists, picked up a chair, and pulled no punches in this shoot. This shoot is so extreme you'll have to watch it several times to make sure you didn't miss anything. This shoot hits harder than a Balls' chair shot to the head!
 
Balls Mahoney is one of the most revered wrestlers from the era of Extreme Championship Wrestling. Balls takes us into the forbidden world of kayfabe in ECW. Balls talks quite candidly about some of his most memorable moments in ECW history. You'll hear all about the wars with the Dudleys, New Jack and Kronus, Sabu, Rob Van Dam, and more. What was it like to be in the ring with this wild bunch of wrestlers? What was it like working for Paul Heyman? Balls tells us, with some great stories to boot.

Balls recounts some of the more controversial moments in Extreme Championship Wrestling history. Balls talks about the crazy locker room and the legendary partying within ECW. Balls talks about the infamous riot with XPW in California. Balls tells a great story about almost coming to blows with an extreme icon. Balls looks back at some of the craziest riots in ECW history, including the night he went nose-to-nose with a white supremacist in the front row in Plymouth Meeting, PA
 
What is it like going from steady work to being unemployed? Balls talks about adjusting to life after ECW. When did Balls realize it was over for ECW? What was it like to go back on the indys? Who were his favorite and least favorite promoters to work for? Balls tells his side of the story regarding his no-showing for CZW, with strong words for Zandig. Balls responds to claims made by other promoters about him and his professional co nduct. Balls clears the air for the first time ever in this RF Video Shoot Interview.
 
How did one of the least political wrestlers in ECW make it to the WWE? Balls talks about he and Axl Rotten's tryout, including the night Axl cracked. Balls also talks about the rocky transition from ECW's locker room to the WWE's locker room. Who tested him in the WWE locker room? What had changed since his last run in the WWE?  Did his past relationship with Paul Heyman help or hurt him in the WWE? Balls also compares politics in the WWE and ECW.
 
Balls is not shy about his experiences in the WWE. Balls tells a great story about the night he threatened to knock out John Cena. Did he act differently in the locker room? What was it like initially working with the WWE crew during the One Night Stand build? Balls also has great stories about being in the ring and working with the Undertaker, Kevin Thorn, and Bob Holly. Was there really anything going on between Balls and Kelly Kelly?
 
Balls recounts his entire WWE run. What were his highlights and lowlights? Where did it go wrong for Balls? What in the world was he doing hiding in a closet and what did he hear? Balls also answers questions about the most powerful family in pro wrestling, the McMahons. From Triple H to Vince, Balls talks about working with them all in and out of the ring. What are his thoughts on his release, and is he bitter? How did he hear about it? What was his shocking reaction?
 
Balls also goes into great detail about his childhood friend, Chris Candido. Balls gets very emotional talking about the passing of one of his best friends. Balls has some great stories about growing up with Chris and breaking into the business together. The emotions continue when Balls talks about the passing of Chris Benoit. What does Balls think about the theory of chair shots causing cerebral damage to Benoit? If anyone would know about taking chair shots to the head, it would be Balls Mahoney.
 
This is without a doubt one of the most fun interviews we have ever had the pleasure of filming. Balls is fun, witty, insightful, and honest to a fault throughout the interview. We have known Balls for over ten years, and he even surprised us with a lot of great stories. As a big fan of our interviews, Balls knew what to expect and delivered. You will never look at Balls Mahoney the same again after this interview. Love him or hate him, you will have nothing but respect for the incredibly journey of Balls Mahoney. RF Video is proud to bring to you one of the craziest shoot interviews of all-time... Balls Mahoney!
