This is a fascinating look at pro wrestling and how it changed into what it is today, written first hand by one of the central players in the drama. Ole Anderson describes how he fought, almost single-handedly (and unsuccessfully, as it turned out) to defend the honor and credibility of pro wrestling. If you were a fan back in the 80s and are disgusted with where wrestling went (as I am) you'll love this book. If you're a more recent fan, this book will show you where today's 'sports entertainment' product came from. Long time fans will have some cherished notions challenged (Ole's comments about Ric Flair startled me, until I realized he's right.) Learn why Ole became a mythical beloved figure among many 'smart' fans of the 80s, as well as why many who worked for him couldn't stand him. Highly recommended; I couldn't put it down.
