Format: Paperback
This book is a very well researched and interesting book giving lists on all different aspects of wrestling from the 10 heaviest to 10 animal inspired nicknames. This would be a very good book to read either as a whole or for 10 minutes at a time. You could pick it up open it at any page and really enjoy this book.

Wrestling's Most Wanted: The Top 10 Book of Pro-Wrestling's Outrageous Performers, Punishing Piledrivers, and Other Oddities
By Floyd Conner.
Published by Brassey's.
Released February 1, 2001.
303 Pages, paperback.

Floyd Conner has composed several of these top 10 books covering a variety of sports including baseball, football and hockey. In the back of this book it states he is a life long football fan and in the text states he was at least an old school wrestling fan, and quite likely present day also. He has composed a daily sports fact calendar too which would be a best seller.
This is a book that is meant to be light hearted, a nice leisurely read that you can pick up at anytime, read a list or two, put it back down until the next time you fancy reading a top 10 something or other that's wrestling related. Floyd starts with an introduction giving the reader a glimpse on what to expect in the following pages. He lists some names such as Amish Roadkill, the Rock, Kevin Nash A.K.A. Oz or Big Sexy, Mr. T, Hulk Hogan, Morgus the Maniac, Kane A.K.A. the Christmas Creature or Dr. Isaac Yankaam, Sunny, and Kimberly Page among many other names, it boasts that there are over 700 grapplers in total featured within this book. Here is a list of just some of the categories you can find in this book: Entertaining Entrances, Celebrity Wrestlers, Music to their Ears, Incredible Names, From NFL to the WWF, They're Animals, Beasts Bruisers and Brutes, Call Me Mister T, Too Sexy for their Trunks, Totally Outrageous, Sex and Violence, Whose Side are you On?

Format: Paperback
This is definitely a list of top 10 this and that of wrestling. Even if it might be of use to someone who does not really know much of the sports entertainment called wrestling, it offers very little to those who actually have followed wrestling for a while. As some other review said, 10 minutes at a time is a good way to finish it off, but if you really want to know more than just a sentence (sometimes faulty, often very shallow information) of a wrestler or a match, consider getting an another book.

Wrestling's Most Wanted: The Top 10 Book of Pro-Wrestling's Outrageous Performers, Punishing Piledrivers, and Other Oddities

Wrestling's Most Wanted a book of top 10 lists is always going to be controversial, everybody will have their own opinion on who should be in these lists depending on what era they grew up watching and how interested they are in the history of this business. Floyd Conner manages to give lists compiled of names covering over 4 decades and throws out there some names you wouldn't normally think of from the late 90's independent wrestling to earlier stars. The only main problem with this book though is it's factually inaccurate. When a wrestler, match, stipulation, prop, manager etc., is named in one of his lists he gives a reason to why they should be included. Besides from some of these explanations being tedious at best, some of them are partially or entirely inaccurate. At first you over look them as they are small trivial era's, but, as you gone reading you realise they get less and less trivial and just totally erroneous, if he had just spent a little more time researching then Floyd Conner would have put together a pretty darn good book of top 10 lists.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great idea for a book on the biz, but does not deliver 19 Mar. 2001
By K. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Books on the subject of pro wrestling are coming out in great quantity these days. A few are great, many are so-so, and some are disappointing. I hate to say this book is one of the disappointments; I love the idea of a pro wrestling "book of lists," I've even known enthusiasts who have considered trying out the idea. "Wrestling's Most Wanted" delivers list after list of stage names, family combos, gimmicks... the categories themselves are interesting, but the examples give little interesting information other than citing who used what gimmick, who uses which finishing hold, etc... I doubt the author really knows a lot about pro wrestling; it seems like he merely collected a book's worth of information and tossed them into a book. Maybe those who know nothing about the pro wrestling biz might enjoy some of the newfound information in these lists; if so, kudos to the author for turning newbies into possible fans. If you are, on the other hand, a wrestling fan who is only even ankle deep in your pro wrestling studies and initiation, you are much better off purchasing the autobiographies of Lou Thesz, Mick Foley and Dynamite Kid.

I found this book to be rather inadequate in its account of the history of professional wrestling.
