Al Snow 2008 Shoot Interview
It has been over ten long years since Snow sat down with us and we were surprised that we got not only a great shoot interview, but so much more as Al explained so much about the working insides of the wrestling business. To some degree, this new DVD is part shoot/part Behind Closed Door as Al mixes answering questions with weaving one story after another on his experience behind the scenes. If you are even considering getting into wrestling, or are a fan who has always wanted to know exactly what it takes to break into – and keep working – in wrestling, then this is the one man you need to listen to as Snow as been in and around the wrestling business working in various capacities for going on twenty five years.
Al discusses wrestling psychology and took us through an in-depth look at exactly what is wrong with today’s wrestling. Snow walked us through what guys are doing in the ring today, how it is wrong, and explains how it can be fixed. Snow described the “formula” trap that many wrestlers fall into and detailed his Seven Deadly Steps of a Wrestling Match. With one great example after another, Snow clearly showed how guys can be great wrestlers, but not great workers. Laying out matches, what “highspot” really means, what a pop should really be about, these and many more subjects are passionately talked about by Snow as he details how the art of the business is slowly being lost because it is being handed over to wrestlers not being trained by qualified professionals. Even we were shocked when Snow gave us his opinion on wrestlers who work the “stiff style” of wrestling with the mistaken idea that it is making wrestling look more real.
