The book is well detailed and looks stylish, but it should be as WWE is one hell or a marketing machine,
But to be world champion of wrestling, means that you're generally regarded as the best at what you do. To go out there and to give the audience the best match of the night, to be the centrepiece of all the major storylines and angles, to be the biggest star imaginable of your organisation and leave a legacy that fans can revere forever.
So many world titles in different wrestling organisations have become illustrious prizes, building the aura of both title and titlist. But perhaps the WWE's heavyweight championship is truly the greatest prize in all of wrestling. Because as Mick Foley once said, "The WWF has always been able to make it's world title mean something."
Looking at the history of WWE Championship reigns, there's certainly very little evidence to dispute that theory. The WWE HAS always been able to make its world title mean something, whether it be the countless classic matches that the belt has been contested for, or from a storyline standpoint, or the calibre of an athlete chosen to hold it, or when the title has been vacated or when its been the focal point of WrestleMania.
Kevin Sullivan (the co-author of bestseller WWE Encyclopedia) tries to sum up everything that makes the WWE title so important with this delightful hardback chronicling everything from its creation to the most recent title change (which at the time of writing was Sheamus' second WWE title win at Fatal 4-Way 2010).Read more ›
