Product Description

Product Description

Ever wanted to know the worst career choices pro wrestlers made upon retirement? Or which kung fu chop-socky wrestlers would make Bruce Lee do a backflip in his grave?

The WrestleCrap Book of Lists! has all that — and much more. The gloves are off as best-selling author RD Reynolds and his co-author Blade Braxton pull no punches in looking at some of wrestling’s biggest mistakes, most comical mishaps and most egotistical performers. Among the lists included in this cornucopia of wrestling nonsense are:

• Sights Wrestling Fans Should Never Be Forced To See Again!

• The Greatest Mullets in the History of the Game!

• Porn Stars Who Moonlighted in Wrestling!

• The Proof that DX is really, REALLY Gay!

• The Greatest Mugshots — Featuring Your Favourite Wrestlers!

• The Pieces of Definitive Evidence that WCW May Have Been Run By Nazis!

• Pro Wrestling’s Stupidest Hometowns!

• The Things That Vince McMahon Always Wants to Talk About (Half of Which Involve His Genitalia)!

Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the book’s craptastic main event: the 25 Worst Gimmicks of All Time.

Irreverent, off-kilter, and certain to be offensive to all, The WrestleCrap Book of Lists! is pro wrestling’s very worst of the worst!

4.0 out of 5 stars Book of oddly numbered lists 24 Dec 2007
By R. Howell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The boys over at Wrestlecrap.com have gone through their database, collect and organized many of the worst ideas, characters, and storylines throughout wrestling history to form the WrestleCrap Book of Lists. If you visit the website, you know what it is all about, this book simply organized many of those dreaded concepts and people into an easy to read and pretty darn hilarious format. I'm not going to compile their lists, you'll just have to trust they all fit and are very funny. You'll disagree on some things but mostly, it's pretty dang close to what we all feel. Some 'facts' of stories may not be entirely accurate (such as around pg 42, The guys say Zybysko blackmailed Dusty with the Baby Doll photos, memory tells me it was Tully Blanchard {Baby Doll was Tully's valet} but well, they have the video library and I don't). There's a good bunch of photos but the best is page 106.

My only beef with the book is that the lists are really pretty oddly numbered. It's not standard Top 10 style but anywhere from a List of 25 to 1. Really guys, 1 entry is not a List. Many stayed in that 7 items range and I would have liked to have had a consistent Top 10 or 15 items per list. Minimum of 5 items in a short list.

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll say "WTF were they thinking?". Read it, enjoy it, and laugh at how stupid wrestling can be. Great job guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let the crap keep on coming! 21 Dec 2007
By A. Pierre - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I got this book opened to a random page and read it. I loved it right away. The writers have a way of writing stuff that is funny but true at the same time. While I dont know there next plan for a book will be, I cant wait to read it. Excellent book and a great companion piece to WrestleCrap: The Very Worst of Pro Wrestling. If you enjoy wrestling books that are honest and not penned by WWE wrestlers or Scott Keith, then this book is for you.

1.0 out of 5 stars A few laughs but generally not recommended 24 Feb 2008
By zvirbulis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had picked up the previous WrestleCrap books, and am a frequest visitor of the website. The death of WCW book was, in my opinion, one of the most interesting and worthwhile books on wrestling available. Informative, detailed, and well written, it was a thorough analysis of the failure of WCW.

This book, however, is quite the opposite. Of course it is not meant to be a serious book, it is meant to be humorous, but even the humor is rare.

What particularly struck me was the vulgarity (particularly references to female body parts), which seemed completely unnecessary. Though some of the lists were funny (the best mullets list in particular) many of them seemed like filler, others were just infantile and disturbing (though wrestling is often infantile - not to mention disturbing - so maybe I shouldn't be surprised)

Also many things in the book, though likely meant to be humorous, come off as being harsh and mean-spirited.

Probably best to avoid this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hit or Miss, but overall a light, entertaining read 1 Aug 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the third of RD Reynolds' books that I've read. It's a different type of read than either Wrestlecrap or the Death of WCW (a fantastic account), as it meanders (in a good way) through a narrative filled with different lists. I enjoyed many of the factual lists, looking back at wrestling's worst gimmicks, storylines, etc., but found the "creative aspects" - i.e. "Fantasy" lists compiled by Reynolds and Braxton of things that didn't really happen, but what "would" have been good or bad - quite distracting. Mixed in, they watered down the humorous atrocities that actually happened, because the reader finds himself inadvertently comparing their outlandish nature to those that actually happened. That being said, I did enjoy the trip down memory lane, but thought that if the authors had stuck to a historical aspect instead of fantasy booking/creating angles, it would have been a stronger read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Book! 27 Jan 2008
By J. Westgate - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I loved his other book, "The Death of WCW", so naturally I picked this one up. I'm 75% finished with it and it eveything I expected: funny, insightful, and detailed. Every wrestling fan should have this book! Highly recommended!
