Hmmm, I've read and heard this somewhere before...

First off, this is an enjoyable read. And it's an enjoyable fresh read if you haven't read Mick Foley's book and watched the Rise & Fall DVD. The writing is pretty unimaginative, and when you find yourself reading page after page of quotes from "Have a Nice Day" and the Rise & Fall DVD, it's a severe case of deja vu. Okay, so perhaps 30% of the interviews are original, but the rest are taken straight from what you've seen and read already. And sometimes it seems Loverro just pops some huge quotation in there for no good reason. No background to it, just copy and paste. If you know the history already you'll understand, but to others it may sound like a 10 year old kid high on too much sugar trying too tell everything at the same time! Fair enough, this review sounds a tiny bit negative, but as I said, if you like wrestling books (and especially if you're unfamiliar with the ECW) - buy it! Just overlook the fact that some of the photos are named laughably wrong (doesn't anyone proof read anymore?!).
