Overview

The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame: Heroes and Icons by Greg Oliver, Steven Johnson, Mike Mooneyham, J. J. Dillon

The legendary good guys worthy of a spot in the pro wrestling hall of fame

At its core, professional wrestling has always been about the forces of evil trying to undermine everything good — and a red hot heel needs a valiant hero to battle against, someone fans can root for, identify with, and look up to.

Wrestling heroes like Hulk Hogan, Dusty Rhodes, The Rock, and Andre the Giant are celebrated worldwide. In Heroes & Icons, Oliver and Johnson include more than just the household names, digging deeper to also tell the story of forgotten heroes and regional stars, like Tiger Jeet Singh, who has an elementary school named after him, and Whitey Caldwell, whose gravesite still sees flowers from fans 40 years after his passing.

Covering the 1930s through to the present day, the latest installment in the acclaimed Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame series examines what makes a great hero.
