5.0 out of 5 stars
Unique, informative and highly enjoyable, 1 July 2013
Spandex, Screw Jobs & Cheap Pops provides a unique and in-depth look into the sometimes overlooked world of British pro wrestling.
The book allows wrestling fans to take an exciting look into the workings of the modern British wrestling business. The interviews and information are presented in a way that makes it easy to follow, meaning that a reader who was not familiar with the British pro wrestling scene would be able to understand and enjoy the book. Speaking of interviews, there are many of them to enjoy, as the author has spoken to everyone from experienced wrestling promoters to wrestlers to referees.
Not only does the book focus on the different roles played in current British wrestling, it also gives the reader a look at different wrestling promotions around the UK and their aims, showing us just how diverse the current British wrestling scene can be.
The book also delves into topics such as the current state of British women's wrestling, a very interesting subject made more so with the inclusion of the POVs of some of the top female wrestlers in the country.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in British pro wrestling, whether it be a life long fan or someone who has just discovered it.
I will definitely be looking out for future works from the author.
