Amazing, truthful, entertaining is what we can say about our 4 hour shoot interview with "No Gimmicks Needed" Chris Candido that was conducted 1/6/05. If you loved our Jim Cornette shoot interviews you will not want to pass up on this interview as Chris just has a million stories to tell. THis interview shows the Rise and Fall of Chris Candido with nothing held back. We left no rock unturned in this exclusive RF VIDEO shoot interview that talks about drugs, sex, and of course pro-wrestling.
The one thing that everyone loves the most about RF Video is we are never scared to ask all the hard questions. Before we conducted this interview we let Chris know that we were going to ask him everything from the rumors of wrestlers sleeping with Tammy (HBK and Davey Boy Smith), his drug use with Tammy that has damaged their careers and all of the most controversial stories that go with it. NOBODY has ever been open as Chris was with his drug use.

The interview starts off taking a look back into the early life of Chris as a child. We discuss how he started to watch wrestling as a kid through his grandfather. You will hear how he would learn how to wrestle by wrestling him in their home. Chris talks about the first time he ever met Balls Mahooney. We then discuss how Chris got started on his own with local indy promoters around the northeast. You will hear all about the training that he went through and what local promoters helped him. We talk about how he would set up rings back in the 80's for NWA and what wrestlers helped him learn his trade.

After we discuss how he got hooked up with Larry Sharpe, Dennis Coraluzzo and meeting Tammy for the first time. We then talk about his first trip down to the Memphis territory and how he got to work with Tom Prichard, Bill Dundee and alot of the other top talent that was there at the time. Chris talks about tagging and meeting Sabu for the first time and there are a million road stories that are hilarious from this time period. You will hear how Sabu almost quit after he got his first pay check and why Candido had to walk around town with a bag over leatherface's head at all time. He talks about working with Eric Embry and all of the stuff he learned with him during his first match down there. We talk about his long car rides from all of the towns and what he learned on those rides. There are a ton of great stories that Chris tells from this time period as well.

Chris than talks about how he got back into the indy scene around the NJ area when he came back until he met Eddie Gilbert and Jim Cornette. We talk about how he went down to SMW wrestling and what he learned from that territory. We talk all about his classic feuds with down there with Bobby Blaze, Tracey Smothers, Rock N' Roll Express and many more. We talk about how Tammy first broke into wrestling as a valet and some of the stuff they went through as a couple.

Chris talks about how he got a call from the WWE to get into the company while working for Smokey Mountain Wrestling. You will hear why he hated it there from day one. This is where the interview starts to get very interesting as we talk about Tammy and his relationship. Chris brought up how he did not like his first gimmick in WWF and how it evolved over time. He talks about his tag partners from Louie Spicolli to Tom Prichard. Chris discusses how WWF really wanted Tammy even if he was there or not. He then talked about other problems he had in the WWF with Shawn Michaels and how HBK said he slept with Tammy. We ask him point out if he thinks she slept with any of the guys behind his back. We asked Chris all about the stories about Tammy and Bulldog and many more. Chris addresses all of these rumors. There is so much said that I do not want to ruin it here so you have to get this interview.

We talk also about how he went over to FMW with Sabu. He talks about how Sabu got all of his scars and what he saw Sabu do to himself to get them. It is a crazy story and you must hear it. We talk about his tour of ALL Japan and how Stan Hanson almost killed him for a rib. What happened after his match with Jushin Liger?

There is so much WWF stories and what he went through with the office while he was there. How he got along with the other workers in the WWF. Why was he a hot head and he talks about how he would be a heat seeker. He talks about quitting the WWF to enter ECW. What were his early impressions of ECW? He talks about all of his marque matches with Spike, Mikey and of course the Triple Threat. We talk all about how Tammy stayed in the WWF and what she was going through. Chris talks all about his relationship with Paul Heyman and how he also helped out backstage with other duties. Being around ECW for the entire time we knew exactly what to ask Chris. You will hear so many ECW inside scoops for the very first time. Chris was not scared at all to speak his mind and tell you what everyone was really like in ECW.

During the ECW time period we brought up his drug use. This is where the shoot interview had us sitting on the edge of our seats. We had alot to ask Chris about his demons. He talked about how he was first ever introduced to drugs with Tammy. Who gave it to him for the first time? He talks about why he took the drugs and what he and Tammy liked to do. When he left WWF and was in ECW he talks about how his problems stayed with him and Tammy. We talk about how he did Somas and how he dealt with all of his friends dying from the same drugs that he was doing. Why was Tammy doing drugs that the boys were taking? He talks about who he did drugs with and some of the people that he got them from. There are alot of crazy drug stories that we talk about as there are just so many of them. We talk about how he had his falling out with Paul Heyman. One of the greatest stories is how Paul owed him a ton of money on his credit card and how Chris was getting so mad at him that he went with his Dad and Tammy to confront Paul in the studio at 4AM. When they got there they kicked down the door and confronted Paul. This was around the time Chris was heading to WCW. He talks about how Paul sat them down and turned everything around and Chris drove home thinking what the hell just happened. This is a great story. He talks about what he thought about Paul letting Tammy do that shoot interview on TNN about her problems and if he thought it came off good. We talk about how he did GHB in the locker room and how Tammy drank it one night in Philly and what happened in that incident. If your a ECW fan this interview is a must.

You will hear how he went into WCW and what problems he ran into there. What happened backstage with Tammy and DDP and Kimberly? Chris talks about what it was like to work in WCW. There are alot of stories on how unhappy he was there and why it did not last there. He talks about how drugs stayed with him when he went into WCW and what problems it led to.

Did you know that Tammy almost died one time and was on her death bed? Did you know that Chris was about a day away from having a heart attack? He talks about what he did after WCW. How they ended up in Puerto Rico and how he said if they stayed there any longer they would both be dead like Eddie Gilbert. There are so many scary insane drug stories. We talk about his return to the indy scene. What made him clean up his act and what is he up to now. We talked about XPW, MLW and all the other crazy stories that followed their career.
