Kevin Steen Shoot Interview
RF Video is proud to announce that we have finally sat down with one of the most talented, outspoken and controversial wrestlers in the world! ‘Mr. Wrestling’ Kevin Steen has been one of the biggest names on the independent wrestling circuit for more than a decade and is on the verge of major mainstream success so the time was right for Steen to sit down with our cameras for the first time and tell all on his improbable rise to the top of the game.
In this interview, we go in depth on it all. We discuss what it was like training with Jacques Rougeau and why Steen considers he experiences with The Mountie to be mostly negative, and he includes a story about a WWE tryout setup by Rougeau that ended very dubiously for the former WWE Tag Team Champion. Steen also shares some interesting thoughts on the opinions of Devon Nicholson, a proud student of Jacques Rougeau, and just what he thinks of Devon’s claims. We talk about his first exposure to the American indy world via the IWS in Montreal and what it was like working for “PCP Crazy F’N Manny”, a man well known for many reasons in the Quebec wrestling circuit. We go in depth on his arrival in the States where he and his peers made a huge splash for CZW at the ECW Arena, and Steen reveals his feelings on the treatment he and his friends received from John Zandig and the CZW locker room. We also discuss his debut and ensuing success with Pro Wrestling Guerilla in California and just how unlikely it was that he would catch on with the promotion as a major star for nearly 10 years.
