First, Williams goes into his famed wrestling and football career at the University of Oklahoma. How and why did Bill Watts get him into the business and why did Watts push him so quickly? Who taught Doc the tricks of the trade? Hear all about the rise of the legendary UWF with stories on The Freebirds and Ted Dibiase. What is the truth behind the elbow that caused him to get 100 stitches? You wont believe the details of the car accident he had with Rick Steiner and how they saved someones life. Williams covers the downfall of UWF and what it was like to go to the NWA as UWF champion and not have that used in a storyline.
