It's really interesting, full of little and big stories in wrestling from the 70s, 80s, 00s and 00s. From the Andy Kaufman vs Lawler feud to the Cm Punk vs Samoa Joe trilogy. It tells you the thing happening over the ring, behind, in the office,... The making of of the first wrestlemania, the original screwjob (i'm talking about the 80s, not the montreal one), the sucess of some tag teams,...
Very complete and interesting. O found it really usefull if you want to learn more about this bussiness history.
if you evn have passing interest in wrestling or have been a long time fan you can't go wrong

Truly a must have for wrestling fans and worth every penny. Kudos to Mr Rickard for an excellent book on everyone's secret love.
So if you consider yourself a wrestling fan, either now or when you were younger, do yourself a favor and pick this book up and remind yourself what it was like to enjoy yourself and not worry about the troubles of life. I guarentee you will not spend your hard earned dollars any better.
This book is akin to a "Greatest Hits" collection through the last 40+ years of action in the "squared circle". This book is a MUST HAVE for any true fan of professional wrestling.
My memory was jogged back to classic matches, interviews and angles that I had forgotten about but had to smile when they were recalled into memory by this book. Who could ever forget the classic Roddy Piper antics in Piper's Pit smashing a coconut over Snuka's head, or shaving the head of a midget or beating up jobber "Frank Williams" or of Piper smashing a beer bottle over his own forehead during an interview to prove a point.
Remember classic matches such as "Bullrope Matches", "Dog Collar Matches", "Texas Death Matches" and more? You will once you start reading.
How about Jimmy Snuka performing his "Superfly" maneuver off the top of a steel cage during his title match against champion Bob Backlund. These and MANY MANY MORE are relived in great detail. This is a very enjoyable read and a welcome addition to my book collection.
