If you are a wrestling fan and love the business as much as I do, you will want to watch this interview as it needed to happen only with RF VIDEO. We left no rock unturned and asked him everything under the sun. If you loved the NWA as much as I did, you will love this amazing interview that lasted for three solid hours. Tony Schiavone gave us one of the best interviews of all time and just like I did you just never wanted to hear the words “Well Tony we got to go we are out of time."
