This review is from: Sex, Lies, and Headlocks: The Real Story of Vince McMahon and the World Wrestling Federation (Hardcover)
Sex, Lies and Headlocks claims to be the real story of Vince McMahon and the World Wrestling Federation, however, much of what is contained within can be found quite easily by anybody who has an inside interest in how the world of Professional Wrestling works.
The book serves more as a catalogue of events and outcomes as opposed to offering any real insight into stuff people don't already know about. The book is largely narrative (did we really need to know that the federal prosecutor liked to drink Pinot Noir from grapes grown in his own back garden?, I think not) and in places some of the dates are sloppy, not good enough considering that long time wrestling journalist Mike Mooneyham was part of the book's creation.
Overall the book does offer an interesting insight into the world of professional wrestling which people don't see on the screen, and for newcomers looking into that side of the wrestling business it serves as an excellent starting point. However, for the seasoned wrestling scholar this book offers little which isn't already known about.
