VIDEO DOWNLOAD - Matt Morgan Shoot Interview
When Matt Morgan was first called up to the WWE ten years ago, many believed he was about to embark on what was sure to be a long and prosperous career with the global leader in sports entertainment. Upon his debut, he was thrown right into the fire, working with the biggest names in the business atop the biggest events in the industry. What happened in the years to follow was a roller coaster of roadblocks and obstacles, but the whole way Morgan remained optimistic that his time would come. A decade later, Matt Morgan has enjoyed extended success in the world of professional wrestling, but he still hasn't reached the very top of the business with the WWE, or come even close to reaching the potential that many believe he had and still has. Both in and outside the ring, Matt has had a life full of ups and downs, and his journey is both heartbreaking at times and also inspirational. In late 2013, Matt's seven year run with TNA came to a very surprising and controversial end, and for the first time, Morgan has decided to sit down exclusively for the RF Video cameras and tell all about a very accomplished, and also frustrating run as one of wrestling's biggest (literally) stars.
When we sat down with Matt, we had no idea what to expect and we knew very little about the real Matt Morgan away from bright lights and tv cameras. In the 4+ hours that followed, we came to respect Morgan as a man who has been through more adversity than most and lived to tell about it. Matt went into excrutiating detail about the life of an addict, a disease he struggled with everyday for nearly five years at a time when his career was just starting to take off. In this video, you will learn what substances Matt's struggled with, how he got it, what life in the WWE and international locker rooms is like as an addict and just what happened that caused him to hit rock bottom and turn his life around. Matt also talked about helping many of his brothers in the business who have had similar struggles, including Kurt Angle, a man who has publically battled his demons for nearly a decade. Matt also had a very traumatic childhood in the classroom, and bounced from school to school until participating in an experimental program that will shock you when you hear just what it entailed. Morgan's story of persevereance in the face of ADHD, learning disabilities and drug addiction is both heartbreaking and inspiring, and it's a story you need to hear. Of course, this was just a fraction of the topics we covered with Matt during his first sitdown in front of the RF Video cameras....
We also discussed Matt's entire WWE run, from his chance meeting with Vince McMahon in the WWE gym before he ever began training to be a wrestler, to his initial introduction to the WWE Universe as part of MTV's 'Tough Enough' reality show, and his arrival in OVW and eventually the bright lights of Monday Night RAW and Smackdown. Matt will tell you what went on behind the scenes with his development, and who was instrumental in helping guide him through the early stages of his career. Matt worked at OVW with some of the biggest names in the business, including John Cena, Randy Orton, Dolph Ziggler, Damien Sandow and many more. What were these superstars like before hitting the big time? Matt will tell you.
Matt's WWE run came to an abrupt and shocking end in 2005 before he fully reached his potential, and Matt himself was caught by surprise by his release. Matt will tell you all about that difficult day and who told him he was out, and what they told him he needed to do to return. After his relase, Matt went international, working extensively in Japan for All Japan, New Japan and HUSTLE, and worked with the country's biggest names and icons, and he'll tell you all about life as a gaijin in the land of the Rising Sun.
