A book poorly written for the average 5th or 6th grader. Definitely a case of the right place at the right time, riding the Wrasslin' hysteria wave. Though most of his accounts are probably true, with all the required name-dropping, it seems to me that he has left alot of stuff out of this book - inane little jokes and repetitiveness fill the pages. Yes, this is a book on the "sport" of wrestling, so who cares about the rest of the stuff that happens surrounding these "athletes," none of them do drugs, mind- nor body- altering, and of course they're all family men, no whoring around for these guys, believe this and Foley really is God. Foley frequently compares himself to professional athletes and now, famous writers, like he has something in common with Stephen King. This book just tells that a bunch of grown children have found their niche in life, being able to continue their backyard wrestling matches on national TV and only realizing they're old (at 30) when their bodies are falling apart from the continuous abuse.
