3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting topic with added guilt., 27 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wrestling Babylon: Piledriving Tales of Drugs, Sex, Death, and Scandal: Piledriving Tales of Drugs, Sex, Death and Scandal (Kindle Edition)
Just a short review as its a while since I've read it.

The topic is of interest to me as a 20+ year wrestling fan, it exposes a side of wrestling that is not often written about (apart from when a prominent wrestler dies too soon) but the main thing that stuck with me while reading this was that I felt a pronounced sense of guilt for watching all this time and indirectly contributing to the decline and demise of so many of my favourite wrestlers.

Though the decisions to take illegal substances is of course the decision of the wrestlers them selves, being a fan of many of the featured wrestlers made me think that if I hadn't bought there merchandise, or a ticket to see them wrestle, perhaps a different line of work would have been chosen.

It's well written and interesting but it has made me think more about the consequences of what the wrestlers go through, and selfishly, it has removed some of the "shine". My only other complaint is that there are a lot of problems raised in this book, with very few remedies suggested.
