One of the most infamous moments in WWE history came when Bart Gunn legit knocked out "Dr. Death" Steve Williams in the Brawl For All toughman tournament in 1998. Gunn, now going as Mike Barton, stopped by for a no holds barred shoot interview that covers his entire career, including the Steve Williams knockout and its after effects. This is one story NO ONE has ever heard before and one you will not want to miss!
Barton discussed his entire career starting from his early days in Florida and how he met up with Kip James, previously known as Billy Gunn. Bart describes how the Smoking Gunns got into the WWE and talked about all the major tag teams they worked with in New York. The Road Warriors, the Steiner Brothers, the Public Enemy, Yokozuna and Owen Hart, Scott Hall and the 1,2,3 Kid, and many more are covered in this exclusive one-of-a-kind shoot. Learn all about the New Generation era of WWE from one of the larger tag team wrestlers of the time!
What was it like working with Bob Holly and Jim Cornette in the ill-fated New Midnight Express? How was it working with Sunny? What was the attitude in the WWE locker room when Scott Hall and Kevin Nash left for WCW? Barton covers all of those stories and many more in depth in this three hour shoot.
After Barton was all but blackballed from American wrestling following his loss to Butterbean at WrestleMania, he went over to Japan, and we were able to get one good story after another about All Japan, New Japan and Barton's foray into the growing world of MMA with K1 and Pride. This is one shoot that is super intense and will make even the most hardcore fan tap out!
