"Matysik's book offers something for the current WWE fan and for folks who enjoyed watching Wrestling at the Chase or bouts at Kiel Auditorium and the Arena. He mentions numerous familiar names and some you may have even forgotten." —St. Louis-Post Dispatch (February 23, 2013)
"One of the things that distinguishes Matysik's book from similar volumes is that he presents very convincing arguments for the inclusion — or the exclusion — of certain performers. He presents those arguments respectfully, along with a sense of fun and intelligence." —Charleston Post-Courier (March 31, 2013)
