Overview


Missy tells all … and there is a lot to tell. First came Missy. Then came Sable, Sunny, Chyna, and the rest. Missy Hyatt was professional wrestling's first character — the original sexy "socialite" sidekick whose trademark Gucci purse and tough-girl attitude made her the most loved — and most hated — woman in wrestling. Now, fifteen years after she first shimmied up to the ring, Missy Hyatt takes fans inside the world of wrestling. From her high school days as a hard-core fan, cheering from her living room, to the cover of Wrestler magazine, Missy has done it all. In this no-holds-barred memoir, Missy discloses the behind-the-scenes secrets of table-throwing, chair-smashing, hair-pulling, and the technique of "juicing" — how wrestlers make themselves bleed on cue. Find out about her intimate relationships with Jake the Snake, Wonder Years' Jason Hervey, Hot Stuff Eddie Gilbert, and many many more. Missy has worked with wrestling's biggest stars, from Hulk to Jesse, from Vince to the Rock, and she tells everything.

Editorial Reviews

Paul E. Dangerously
Missy Hyatt is going to burn in hell—and rightfully so! —(Paul E. Dangerously (ECW owner, WWF announcer)
Electra
Missy Hyatt is the first lady of wrestling. She knows the business inside out—literally. Now she's telling all. Forget you know me, Missy ... and enjoy the Witness Protection Program! —(Electra (ECW, HBO's The Sopranos))
Tom Z-Man
Missy and I and Brian Pillman were the best tag team ever ... under a blanket! —(Tom Z-Man (WCW))
Terry Funk
Missy always had more bullshit in her than a Christmas turkey. But come Christmas, I'd still rather have her on the table than the turkey. —(Terry Funk (WCW))
Stevie Richards
Missy was a real bitch to me for the longest time! I think it may have been because she wanted me so bad and knew I was way out of her league. Anyway, as Big Stevie Cool would say, READ THE BOOK! READ THE BOOK! —(Stevie Richards (ECW, WWF))
Dusty Rhodes
Missy Hyatt is every school boy's dream, and pro wrestling's Jane Mansfield. —(Dusty Rhodes)
Tammy Sytch
People credit 'Sunny' for revolutionizing the wrestling business for females. But before Sunny, Missy ruled the wrestling world. When I met my husband, Chris Candido, I tore her poster off his bedroom wall! Years later, after I met her, I realized what a wonderful person she was ... which made it really hard to hate her. She's an inspiration to me and a role model for all of the hundreds of girls who have tried to follow in her footsteps. To tell the truth, her poster should be hanging on their walls! —(Tammy Sytch (aka Sunny—WWF, ECW))
Kimona Wanalaya
I've got one word for Missy Hyatt ... Diva! —(Kimona Wanalaya (aka Leia Meow—ECW, WCW))
Kevin Nash
I think I'm the only guy in wrestling who didn't sleep with Missy Hyatt. —(Kevin Nash (WWF, WCW))

    Missy is no Sissy!!

    Mi ssy gives a great detailed account of her entire career in the sport of pro wrestling from her wrestling groupie days to her her first match for World Class to her final apperance in the Xpw promotion.She even let's you know what she has planned for her after wrestling career.Personally,I wished she'd haved dished a little more sexual dirt on the affairs she's had with certain wrestlers but was a very enjoyable read for a girl like me who's watched Missy from her first ever wrestling appearance in my hometown of Dallas,Tx. Is a very informative read on any woman looking to break into the now " sports entertainment" business as a woman wrestler/valet/manager

    Nothing new

    If your a fan of Missy, you probably saw her "shoot" interviews with RF Video, Smart Mark Video and Wrestling Universe. This book is basically everything said in those interviews on paper. If you seen any of the videos, skip the book. Lots of name dropping and typical Missy stuff.

    RingRats Bible

    I read the book a few months ago and you might as well call it the ringrats bible because she details and names names as to who she slept with. I hope any and all wrestling wives and girlfriends read this book to find out if their husbands or boyfriends have ever slept with her and may those men get what they deserve. I won't name names fellas you know who you are. If your a ringrat(for which I am not) this is the book for you then again it would be followed to the letter thus making good girls to the business like myself look worse than what we already do now. Thanks a damn lot Missy for damaging our good girl reputations!

    Slut

    I must give Missy credit. I didn't know she could spell. She is one person that girls do not want to look up too. Missy is pretty trashy and she should have saved the money she spent on plastic surgery for something else because she sure went to hell pretty fast. ----Owner, Anti-Ringrats
