It's a classic for a reason. I'd also recommend it as a business study as it analyses the numbers and the reasons for them very thoroughly. It's very well written, funny and always interesting. If you've read the original and wondering if it's worth buying this edition I'd recommend it as it has tons of new content.

As a 'Mark' wrestling fan, I had a pretty decent idea about what had happened in the Monday Night Wars and the collapse of WCW, but this book delved much deeper into my knowledge and shed so much more light onto just what went wrong from the top to the bottom.

This is a compelling read for any wrestling fan to look at and well worth the time.

Good insight in to the other side of the industry that we very rarely see. As I write this I'm about a third of the way through and surprised already at how things were structured and how many bad decisions were made

The death of an organisation is always sad but sometimes is necessary. WCW seems poorly managed and was lacking in ideas. TNA and possibly WWE has fallen in the same league and needs new talent to make the entertainment better. New talent in NXT and other smaller organisations are blowing new air into the area but may run out soon. Good book for wrestling fans.

The story of the rise and incredible fall is detailed here in all its glory. The book goes through the entire history of the company, with a combination of snippets of interviews with wrestlers and background figures in the middle of it all, and also a nice dose of humour. For even the most fairweather wrestling fan this is.a fascinating read, delving into the good, bad and downright baffling decisions which led to the downfall of wcw, alongside warning notes for tna to follow at the end of the book.

I really enjoyed this. I grew up as an avid WWE/WWF fan and didn't know a whole lot about WCW, didn't see and live through it's demise, instead I simply noticed it off to the side. This book gives enough information for me to follow what happened and is written in an interesting way, keeping me entertained throughout. The only (minor) complaint is that after reading it, I'm not sure I fully get how WCW was so popular in the first place! But perhaps that's truly because I wasn't watching at the time.

Absolutely brilliant book about WCW. Being a WWF fan and watching the attitude era i had a general gauge of what was going on over at WCW. But this book shines a whole new light on the matter. Also the book mentions WWF issues as well which is nice to read in conjunction with WCW.

Also the book surprisingly funny, with the author showing their frustration at the ineptitude that killed off WCW.

The author should do a corresponding boom on WWF to show their post 2001 decline.

A thorough blow by blow account of the mistakes and misjudgements (both behind and in front of the cameras) that took World Championship Wrestling out of business. It certainly covers everything and at times it makes for unbelievable reading, but it's let down by really poor writing, it feels more like reading a website than a novel (the phrase "don't ask" and variations of it appear so often it becomes like water torture, and every point made has to then be repeated with "Yes, they really did this" just to hammer it home). Even more so in this 10th anniversary edition the authors seem intent on, to use a wrestling term, "putting themselves over" rather than just telling the story. Yes well done Messrs Reynolds and Alvarez, you're very clever and funny and we're all laughing. There's definitely a great book in the demise of what was at one time the biggest wrestling company in the world, but this isn't it.
