In The Ring with Stevie Richards
If there is any one professional wrestler that should be running a wrestling school it would have to be Stevie Richards. RF VIDEO was fortunate enough to have Stevie Richards host our newest In the Ring DVD series where Stevie was able to pass along his years of knowledge to a class of young and hungry aspiring professional wrestlers.
Make no mistakes about it, Stevie is the complete opposite of a Ole Anderson or Hiro Matsuda where he was trying to stretch the kids or take them to the limits during his class. Stevie came off as one of the best teachers around taking his time with the students and explaining all aspects of the business in this near 2 and a half hour DVD.
Stevie was able to pass along tons of backstage stories from his times in ECW, WWE and TNA that would be able to help shape some of these students paths. Stevie covers the basics and one of the first things he had the class do is ask him questions.
Here are some of the key things that Stevie talks about:

Some of the best lessons is when Stevie shares stories of his in ring matches while he was in ECW with Dreamer, Raven and the rest of the Extreme locker room. We can't forget about his time in the WWE and during the seminar he pulls out tons of stories about working matches with top WWE superstars and gives lessons around some of those matches that stuck out in his career. If your a Stevie Richards fan your going to love the DVD just for his shoot stories but if your trying to break into the business or your already a wrestler trying to improve your craft you must purchase this DVD because Stevie has some of the best advice of all time. Watching this DVD is like watching a parent teaching a child on how to ride a bike for the first time. Stevie by far was the most nurturing teacher we ever had to take part in our In the Ring DVD series!!

Stevie Richards set out to make a impact in the world of professional wrestling and he had a dream ever since he was a teenager as he wanted to be a Superstar in this business. He reached his goals by going thru political hurdles in ECW with the NY clique, going to WCW and facing diversities, falling back into ECW for more torment and then going to the wrestling playground that every wrestler dreams to showcase their talents which is called the WWE . After his long WWE run Stevie reinvented himself and ended up in TNA until he left the promotion and ended back on the indy scene where it all started for one of the most motivated pro wrestlers we ever sat down with.
