Synopsis

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO DIE THE DEATH IT DID In fact, the company was destined to thrive and prosper. They had so many advantages - a roster packed with strong talent and Ted Turner, the biggest media mogul in the universe - it seemed not only would the company expand its profits, but that it would eventually turn every other wrestling promotion in the country to dust. However, by 2001 the company, having lost 95% of its paying audience, has sold for next to nothing to Vonce McMahon and World Wrestling Entertainment. How could a company lost their audience so quickly? Why did they put on shows so horrible that fans fled in horror? Who were the people responsible for this catastrophic collapse? In short, just what caused the death of one of the largest wrestling companies in the world? THE DEATH OF WCW answers all of these questions and more as it investigates the bizarre (and often hysterical) history of the downfall of the WCW.

A follow-up to the highly successful Wrestlecrap: The Very Worst of Professional Wrestling this is the first book in history to detail the spectacular rise and fall of World Championship Wrestling, a story that many within the industry would prefer to leave untold.
