Find out what made him the man he became today, from his impressive 60-1 childhood record as a Golden Glove state champion boxer, to his championship victories on the football field, and numerous victories and championships in the world of professional wrestling. Hear Buff’s story, from growing up in a wealthy Marietta family with enough happening to fill a completely separate release, to being scouted and signed by Dusty Rhodes at the age of 19. Follow his roller-coaster of a journey as one half of the pretty boy American Males tag team, to his stint as a top-draw in the industry as a member of the New World Order, to his short run in WWE and life on the independent wrestling scene thereafter. Find out what led Buff to be on the television series Gigolos, as well as his appearances in other various film and television. The first in what will be a new series of docu-shoot interviews has Buff tell all in regards to the scandals, rumors, lies, and truths that have surrounded his career. He pulls no punches when discussing hot topics like addiction, behind-the-scenes romance, and backstage politics.
