Every chapter concerning wcw is written in a disgusted, 'how-dare-they' attitude, whilst every bad wwf booking decision is laughed at as if to say 'oh you guys, at least you won in the end'.
I honestly lost count of how many wwf-centric sections were justified by using 'but they signed Steve Austin, Mick Foley and hhh from wcw', like wwf knew what they were doing. Austin became a star in spite of the wwf system, not because of it, and the others got over on their own merits as well.
Not a great book, written by an obvious wwf fanboy in the style of most wrestling journalism at the time of wcw' s demise.
Hard to recommend.
This book is great for any wrestling fan it not only highlights the gimmick side of wrestling but also backstage interaction that manipulated what we see each week, Wrestlecrap is a great insight and is well worth a look in.
Even if you've never read the wrestlecrap website you'll still be able to enjoy this humourous look at the industry. There's also a good nostalgia factor with some of the names and ideas you had completely forgotten about (and that pro wrestling wishes it could forget about).
