RF VIDEO hits another major home run today, by conducting a shoot interview with former AWA World Champion, The Living Legend Larry Zybysko.  This interview is once again what a shoot interview is all about.  Just like Bad News Brown and Billy Jack, Larry holds nothing back and gives the phrase, "e;shoot interview,"e; real meaning.

The interview was almost 4 hours long and is loaded with never before stories about his heel turn on Bruno Sammartino,  NWA, WCW,  AWA, WWWF, TNA and so much more.  Larry talks about his start in wrestling and how he stalked Bruno as a fan before he broke into the business.  You will hear all about his early days in WWWF. There is so much WWWF talk about politics and stuff from the 70's and 80's that if your a WWF fan you will want to hear everything that he has to say.  We talk about all of his early classic matches before the Bruno and Larry split with all the top stars of the WWWF.  You want to hear about rib stories and backstage fights that have never been told before this shoot has it.

Why did he quit the WWWF and go work for Georgia Championship Wrestling.  What happened when he had a falling out with Bill Watts and he got fired after one day on the job.  A few weeks later  you will find out why did Bill Watts eat his words and re hires Larry and apolgizes in a closed door meeting with Jim Barnette.  Talks about his major feuds in Georgia with Tommy Rich, Orndorff and more. 

How did Larry end up in the AWA and working for Verne Gagne?  How he got busted for dating Verne's daughter.  He talks about all the greats from the awa and what it was like to work with Nick Bockwinkle, Henning, Ray Stevens, Scott Hall, Rockers and all of his major programs in the AWA.

You will hear what it was like for Larry to work for the NWA and WCW early on.  He talks about the original NWO angle that was supposed to happen with the AWA talent before Hall and Nash were brought in years later.  What did Baby Doll have in the envelope? He takes us on a very inside look on Eric Bischoff.  How they first met in AWA and he talks about Eric's rise to power and how he landed his booking job in WCW.  This part of the shoot is just awesome. We also talk all about his matches with Arn Anderson as a tag team and how Scott Steiner started to shoot on him in the ring and how he took him down. We talk in great length about the demise of WCW and what lead up to the end of the company.  This interview is loaded with brand new, never told stories.  Larry held nothing back talking about guys like Lex Luger, Sting, Brusier Brody, and of course Ric Flair.  Larry has alot of stuff to say on the Nature Boy and its raw and in your face!!  What about Bill Gooldberg and why the company ruined a homegrown talent.  Thoughts on why Bret Hart should never been pushed the way he was.

Why he stepped down from being a wrestling in WCW to doing play by play.  Thoughts on Russo and how he almost fought Scott Hall in a bar after Louis Spicolli passed away.  We talk all about TNA and all of the major talent from AJ Styles to Somoa Joe.  Does he think Jeff Jarrett is pushed to hard.  We talk all about the current wrestling product and why it is so bad.  What are the top workers doing wrong.  Larry talks about working with Raven and AJ Styles.  What he thinks is in store for TNA and the indy world.  The shoot talks all about the good and bad of today's sport and what can be done to change it.  Larry is just one of the funniest guys and is super down to earth in this shoot interview. 

I will have a much more detalied report on this interview later this weekend!!!!  Doug Gentry is saying this shoot should be in our top 5.  Here is a list of the questions that we asked Larry!!!
