Product Description

Review

"Awesome.  Great interviews with all the key players from different eras. It's like every time I get near the book it drags me into opening it and the next thing I know it's an hour later." —www.f4wOnline.com


"Mad Dogs, Midgets, and Screw Jobs is an informative and entertaining read for any professional wrestling buff. Laprade and Hébert's well-researched text shows the evolution of the world of wrestling in the city of Montreal, which has been the focal point of Canadian pro wrestling history." —www.slam.canoe.ca

About the Author

Pat Laprade is well known within the wrestling community in Montreal for being the creator of the first Quebec wrestling hall of fame. He contributes to SLAM! Wrestling, the Wrestling Observer, and Reseau des Sports. In the 1990s, Bertrand Hébert was the mind behind Northern Championship Wrestling, ushering the Montreal territory into the independent era of wrestling.

I could not stop reading this book once I started!

Montreal always did have a rich history of wrestling attached to it. WWE annoncers call it "Bizarro Land" for a reason. Most fans know a little about the great wrestlers that come from Montreal, the history behind the screwjob, the time Hogan had 15 minutes ovation on live TV or Lawler's heart attack... but how much do you really know about one of the Capital City of Wrestling? Never enough!

The book is written by two wrestling historians, Pat Laprade and Bertrand Hebert, who finally decided to break the language barrier associated with the french province to tell the story of how much Montreal shapped and changed the wrestling world... and still does!

The more you think you know about wrestling, the more "knowledge gaps" will be filled by this great ouvrage full of personnal stories by the wrestlers and promoters who were part of it, written just in time so that most of them are still alive to tell them. Lots of suberb photos, news articles and a complete and comprehensive Montreal's title history make this book even more complete. Also, for readers who are not from Montreal, Quebec or Canada, most of the chapters come with a brief, yet insightful view of the social/polical/economical portrait of what was going on a the time.

A necessary book that couldn't have been more lovingly written by more competent people. Well done!

No wrestling fans should miss this one, you too will fall in love with Montreal's wresting History!

Even if it's the story of the Montreal territory, a lot of stories on wrestlers known around the world: Rick Martel, Dino Bravo, Andre the Giant, Abdullah the Butcher, Mad Dog Vachon, Little Beaver, Lord Alfred Hayes, Billy Robinson, The Rougeau brothers... I recommand it without hesitation.
