It took RF VIDEO nearly 15 years to sit down with one of the original ECW superstars and it was well worth the wait. You can call him what you want, Big Stevie Cool, Dancing Stevie Richards the king of swing, Dr Stevie or Stevie Richards, as most of you know him from his early days in ECW. 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.

In this solid 4 hour 20 minute shoot interview, yes almost 4 1/2 hours, Stevie covers for the first time ever in this RF VIDEO exclusive shoot interview his entire career from his early days in the Philadelphia wrestling scene that brought him to ECW. You will hear how he landed into ECW and how his relationship started with Paul Heyman. How did Stevie get partnered up with Scott Levy which later became one of ECW's top money gimmicks of all time Raven. What was their relationship outside the ring? How did their ECW relationship cary over to WCW and WWE and even to this day and you will hear first hand on why is has never been a smooth ride for Raven and Richard's as friends. What happened in ECW when Taz and the NY clique took issues with Stevie as Stevie talks all about what went on behind the scenes with his ECW run and how he took so much brutal heat from Tazz, Bubba, Perry Saturn and others. Stevie talks all about his run in ECW during the Raven vs Dreamer feud and what parts he played in it. How did Stevie get the singles push after his program working with Raven. Stevie talks about his early injuries that he suffered from Sandman and Terry Funk in ECW that almost made him crippled. If your a ECW fan the first two hours is pure gold. You will hear gossip on every ECW superstar that ever entered the ring as Stevie has worked with everyone in ECW. Stevie talks about all of his gimmicks in ECW from the BWO to making it on the very first ECW PPV Barley Legal working with Terry Funk and Raven.

Why did Stevie quit ECW and how did Paul Heyman take the news over the phone? How did Stevie end up in WCW with Raven and what was it like to be working in WCW during the boom period. You will hear about his WCW tun and what it was like work with with Randy Savage, DDP and working with Raven once again and why it was not as fun as it sounds. What was Hogan like towards him in WCW, you will find out. Stevie did not stick around WCW for a long period and there was a reason for it. Why did he come home to ECW? Did Paul Heyman welcome him with open arms?

What happened backstage when Stevie came to the ECW arena for the very first time and Taz and Bubba took him under the stairs for a nice chat, or was it that nice? Did Chris Chetti stiff Stevie in a shoot to teach him a lesson on his first match back with ECW at the NVR PPV? Why did Stevie leave ECW so quick after he was going to get a major singles push?

Make no mistakes about it, Stevie was one of the longest running talents who stayed around the WWE when he left ECW. He had one of the longest runs there out of anyone from ECW. What was it like to work with Heyman in the WWE and how were things different with Raven once he got there? What were the Dudleys like in WWE? Stevie talks about all of his WWE gimmicks from Right to Censor to working with Ric Flair in Philadelphia. Stevie was in the WWE and worked with every big name in the business. He even took over Stevie Night Heat and made it his own show until Stephanie McMahon caught on. The stories alone is worth the price of the shoot. You will hear stories on the Rock, Steve Austin, Undertaker, Chris Jericho, Chyna, Edge and every name that Stevie came across in the WWE locker room. How did he wind up in ROH for a angle there while he was under WWE contract? What did he think of the beating Blue Meanie took from JBL at One Night Stand?

Why did Stevie never get the push that he so deserved in the WWE? What obstacles stood in his way and how did the phrase "Ill show you you'll see" come about and what was the meaning behind it? What did he think about the fake WWE ECW version? Want to hear his thoughts on CM Punk?

Remember this interview is 4 1/2 hours long so we spend plenty of time on every company he worked for. How did Terry Taylor guide his career and play an important role as his mentor for him?

Stevie spent many years working in the WWE as RF VIDEO dissected his entire WWE run from start to finish. There is nothing left untouched. After his WWE run Stevie reinvented himself and you will find out why. What was it like to work for TNA and once again to work with Raven. How was working with Mic Foley in TNA? What were his thoughts on working with Hogan and Bischoff. Did he think Dixie was smart to the businesss. What ideas did he have in TNA that never came into fruition and what promises were broken?

Do I need to tell you that this interview was 4 1/2 hours long, so you know we did not rush anything. What was it like for Stevie to resurface on the indy scene? What is Stevie into outside of the world of pro wrestling? You will hear about his love for modern day technology and how he is making it a second life for him.

One of the best shoots out there...
Bork Laser (NY) 11/2/2014 4:35 AM
If not the best. I have seen 100 shoot interviews, probably more but i don't count. I can tell you this has to be in my top 3 shoots ever. That includes Youshoots and timelines... Its 4 hours of coherent stories and event by Stevie Richards. Everything is covered, i soon realized after just how much Richards has done in wrestling. Most will think of RTC but theres much more, including ECW, WCW, stories of his WWE run as a jobber for 10 years and his TNA run that should have been much longer. He is very open and doesn't hold back. Also has a great memory for a wrestler.
The Stevie Richards Story
Matthew ruiz (Bronx, NY) 11/26/2013 11:32 PM
Stevie Richards holds nothing back as he tells you his whole story into the wrestling business. Stevie made a name for himself during his time in ECW as he eventually became the sidekick for Raven! If you want good ECW stories, this is the interview for you, because he gives his true feelings on all the ECW stars during his tenure. He tells you what it was like to work for Paul Heyman and what type of motivator Paul was! He tells you what Tazz was really like, the Dudley Boyz, the Blue Meanie, the Pitbulls, his angle with them and how they took liberties with him! He goes in great detail of working with Raven both inside and outside the ring and how difficult Raven could be in both situations and how they're relationship went from being difficult to being very close friends today! Stevie talks about going to WCW very briefly and the plans Eric Bischoff had for him, but he eventually went back to ECW. Stevie talks about the Raven-Tommy Dreamer feud, the cruxification angle with Sandman, going to the WWF and forming the Right To Censor and loving it! Stevie gives you his real feeling on the top stars and Vince McMahon. This was a much better interview than I ever imagined.
Highly recommended!

No stone from Stevie's wrestling career goes unturned as Stevie and RF Video run though Stevie's accomplishments and travels, with alot of detail and insight into his time with the various companies. Very informative shoot.
Steve (Canton, OH) 4/3/2013 11:46 PM
This DVD is worth the money out of all shoots Richards goes in depth and gives a lot of insight on the business RF production guys turn off your fucking ring tones you didn't hear Steve's shit go off lol unprofessional great shoot though 
Just What I Expected.. And More!!!
JM (Bronx, NY) 2/27/2013 10:41 PM
Just like RF, I have been waiting for a Stevie Richards shoot for years! This was such an in depth shoot, so informative, and so honest. Stevie Richards was always high on my list, but I have become an even bigger fan of his after this video. 4 1/2 hours too, WELL WORTH the spending money!!!
