This book offers readers a link between what happened a century ago to what is currently happening today.

Through injuries, sickness, and family tribulations, many wrestlers have given everything they have to give in the ring, and true fans of the sport love every single second of it.

5 Stars highly recommended. An excellent pro wrestling history book with many pictures never seen before. I would of liked to have seen more pictures of some the New England area pro wrestlers of the day such as Hans Kruger, Joe Marciano, and Irish Pat Sullivan.
Very interesting. Too bad some of the pictures are cut off or completely missing. Format needs to be corrected.
