Not really a wrestling book...,
This review is from: Rope Opera: How WCW Killed Vince Russo (Paperback)
I should be honest here, this is not really a review of this whole book; it's a review of the first four chapters. I had planned on reviewing the entire thing but I really couldn't read any more.
My biggest issue with the book was just how much Russo talks about religion. Don't get me wrong, I knew when I bought the book that Vince Russo is a born-again Christian and that his religion is a big part of his life but surely he realises that people aren't buying his book to read about that. If I'm buying a book called 'Rope Opera - How WCW Killed Vince Russo' then I don't think it's unreasonable to expect the book to mainly be about wrestling.
The parts where he does talk about wrestling are informative and enjoyable but unfortunately there just aren't enough of them.
If you want a book about WCW then do yourself a favour and pick up a copy of The Death of WCW.
