Lance Storm is who all young and up and coming wrestlers should look up to as a role model, Someone who saw this as his profession and just wanted to get better, a true wrestler who was committed to the sport, when Lance became a big name in the wrestling business he never strayed onto the wrong path of parties and the rest, no he brought us his A game remaining professional throughout his career, hall of fame candidate for sure! in his two books storm front and storm warning he brings us some detailed events and stories from his website blog which cover his career and also go back to a time when he was just starting out. I will never look at air travel the same again ha ha. I've got one question for you Mr Evers - When's the biography coming out as these books where awesome!
Much like the first book, Storm Front is a collection of entries from Lance's own site, compiled with pictures and added insight in retrospect. The stories are interesting and varied, covering his WWE time during a pretty exciting time in Wrestling history, that of the WWE Invasion and it's good to get Lance's insight, as well as candid thoughts on other matters, like brand split. Oh, and lots of travel woe. It's a really good read and Lance has a knack for good storytelling. The only downside is that the editing in the book is quite poor, with a lot more spelling errors than any book really should have, which is disappointing. Otherwise though, a very good read.
I've been a visitor to Lance Storm's website for years, and thought I should support him by buying the two Kindle collections finally. An excellent (re)read, with enough additional commentary to more than justify the price.
A well written account of a fascinating career at a turning point in wrestling history - if you enjoy the show, or did at the time, this is really worth a read, and even if not it is likely to be an interesting read from a likeable author.
It's OK, but not great. Which is a bit like his career really. It is a fine, if a little repetitive reading. If you are stuck for some wrestling to read, then this is an OK book. In reality I would give it 3.5 as it offers little insight into his world or the industry at any real depth.
