RF VIDEO conducted another shoot interview with local legend from the Philadelphia wrestling scene and this time JT Smith took the RF VIDEO hot seat.

JT shares many locker room stories on what it was like in the TWA dressing room. JT talks about what it was like to train with the Sandman when they both just broke in.
