1.0 out of 5 stars Some random lists, and very hit and miss humor. Guess which one prevails. 3 Sept. 2008
By Aiex Halo - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
So I'm not much of a fan of the WrestleCrap website. I find it hard to navigate through, and only really enjoy the "Someone Bought THIS!" section. However, I thought "The Death of WCW" was highly informative, and had great, but never over-the-top, humor.

Then this one I decided would be fun, the sort of thing not to read all in one sitting, but to read out lists and such.

As it turns out, they clearly ran out of list ideas about halfway through, and started throwing random lists together like "TOP WORST MULLETS IN THE BUSINESS" followed by "TOP BEST MULLETS IN THE BUSINESS" and "TOP 25 WORST MOVE NAMES" and "TOP 1 WORST CHAMPIONSHIP SPEECH" random bits that often end up nonsensical, and with really lame "miss" jokes.

Some of the lists are really unimpressive, and all either involve one person, or one event. The most pathetic list in my view was the "TOP 3 OUTFITS THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN RESERVED FOR HALLOWEEN" and all it consisted of was one event, Wrestlemania 22, and the outfits worn by Rey Mysterio, John Cena, and Triple H. The jokes were terrible, too.

Possibly WrestleCrap's style, any of the funny jokes weren't actually funny, but more of the sort of "Oh, I see, that's kind of amusing", while a solid 50% of them were simply "That was stupid", with most of the rest falling in between those.

The final list involves the "TOP 25 WORST GIMMICKS EVER" and I'd consider it a real disappointment. Most of the gimmicks weren't given any real explanation as to why they are among the "worst", and just about all but a very small portion of them are intensely obscure and esoteric things, like a one-time gimmick from some random jobber in some random independent federation in 1972 that lasted a week. Some older fans might not even get it, so younger fans are completely out of it.

Potentially a spoiler, but the supposed "WORST GIMMICK OF ALL TIME" was "Red Rooster", a gimmick for Terry Taylor in which Bobby Heenan called him a little red rooster one time, and the name stuck, so at Wrestlemania, Taylor spiked his hair, colored it red, and pretended to be a rooster.

Is that it? Seriously? That came above the likes of Cheex (not even mentioned), RoboCop (seriously. Also not even mentioned), Kerwin White (not even mentioned), the Bashams, Gobbledy Gooker (came in number 2), Shockmaster (nowhere near top 10), Yeti, That 70s Guy (not even mentioned), Warrior in WCW, and others.

In all, this book is not comedic, and useful only for learning obscure and esoteric facts such as who was AWA Champion in 1980 or who Bastion Booger is or who was the first and only "World World Tag Team Champion". Not worth half the amount I spent on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars must read for wrestling fans 16 Feb. 2009
By D. Williams - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was fun and humerous look inside the world of pro wrestling. Laid out in a list type format. I would reccomend it to any fan of professional wrestling. I learned a lot and it was fun to reminice about some of the things I knew already.

1.0 out of 5 stars A few laughs but generally not recommended 24 Feb. 2008
By zvirbulis - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had picked up the previous WrestleCrap books, and am a frequest visitor of the website. The death of WCW book was, in my opinion, one of the most interesting and worthwhile books on wrestling available. Informative, detailed, and well written, it was a thorough analysis of the failure of WCW.

This book, however, is quite the opposite. Of course it is not meant to be a serious book, it is meant to be humorous, but even the humor is rare.

What particularly struck me was the vulgarity (particularly references to female body parts), which seemed completely unnecessary. Though some of the lists were funny (the best mullets list in particular) many of them seemed like filler, others were just infantile and disturbing (though wrestling is often infantile - not to mention disturbing - so maybe I shouldn't be surprised)

Also many things in the book, though likely meant to be humorous, come off as being harsh and mean-spirited.

Probably best to avoid this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book of oddly numbered lists 24 Dec. 2007
By R. Howell - Published on
Format: Paperback
The boys over at have gone through their database, collect and organized many of the worst ideas, characters, and storylines throughout wrestling history to form the WrestleCrap Book of Lists. If you visit the website, you know what it is all about, this book simply organized many of those dreaded concepts and people into an easy to read and pretty darn hilarious format. I'm not going to compile their lists, you'll just have to trust they all fit and are very funny. You'll disagree on some things but mostly, it's pretty dang close to what we all feel. Some 'facts' of stories may not be entirely accurate (such as around pg 42, The guys say Zybysko blackmailed Dusty with the Baby Doll photos, memory tells me it was Tully Blanchard {Baby Doll was Tully's valet} but well, they have the video library and I don't). There's a good bunch of photos but the best is page 106.

My only beef with the book is that the lists are really pretty oddly numbered. It's not standard Top 10 style but anywhere from a List of 25 to 1. Really guys, 1 entry is not a List. Many stayed in that 7 items range and I would have liked to have had a consistent Top 10 or 15 items per list. Minimum of 5 items in a short list.

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll say "WTF were they thinking?". Read it, enjoy it, and laugh at how stupid wrestling can be. Great job guys.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just a little too much bias for my taste 9 July 2009
By epcthree - Published on
Format: Paperback
As most reviewers have mentioned, there is little in this book that hasn't been written elsewhere, either online or in print. When reading any book which is essentially a re-telling of history (in this case the history of WCW) the writer(s) will likely have some bias even prior to their writing on the subject. For me, that was too obviously the case here. I won't even necessarily disagree with the ultimate conclusions of the book but the sarcastic and smarmy way in which they were presented left me cold. Also, while I read at least one poster who praised the book for its accuracy, I was struck by many incorrect facts and citing of data. All in all not awful, but my caveat would be to read it with a "grain of salt".
