Fanboys wet dream....
on 17 June 2014
While a decent enough read and a good starting point for anyone wanting to look into the often ridiculous history of pro wrestling, this was written with such an obvious wwf bias that it hurts.
Every chapter concerning wcw is written in a disgusted, 'how-dare-they' attitude, whilst every bad wwf booking decision is laughed at as if to say 'oh you guys, at least you won in the end'.
I honestly lost count of how many wwf-centric sections were justified by using 'but they signed Steve Austin, Mick Foley and hhh from wcw', like wwf knew what they were doing. Austin became a star in spite of the wwf system, not because of it, and the others got over on their own merits as well.
Not a great book, written by an obvious wwf fanboy in the style of most wrestling journalism at the time of wcw' s demise.
Hard to recommend.
