Product Description

Product Description

“Imagine having the Wrestling Observer or Fighting Spirit Magazine in the 1930s!” - John Lister, veteran wrestling journalist/author.

“The best of the best.” - James Zordani, wrestling historian.

“[A] seminal expose.” - Jonathan Snowden, Bleacher Report Lead Combat Sports Writer and author of Shooters, the definitive modern book about the pioneer era.

Over 50 years before Vince McMahon exposed wrestling's inner-workings to avoid taxes in New Jersey, over 55 years before the first shoot interview video, and over 60 years before Mick Foley's first book, Fall Guys was the first time was the inside of the pro wrestling business was really expose in-depth. While the agenda behind the book serves as a source of controversy to this day, it is a must-read for everyone who wants to learn about wrestling history.

HASH(0x9c8dedbc) out of 5 stars Where's the beef ? Right here is where it is March 7 2015

I had been wanting to read this book for quite some time but was not interested in paying 25$ to buy the hardcover version of it, especially since its not a very long book. I was pleased to finally locate the kindle version recently for a fraction of the price. I had really heard good things about it at various wrestling websites and knew the book was about the corruption of the pro wrestling biz during the dawn of the modern wrestling era. What I didn't expect was an incredibly detailed history of all the rivalries, feuds, power struggles, double crosses and other shenanigans by the various wrestling promoters of the day, Even though I had high expectations for this book it far exceeded them and I whizzed through the book in one night. I have a strong interest in the history of pro wrestling from 1985 all the way back to its roots in the early 1800s - before the business became all sizzle and no steak we see today - and I have read many excellent books on the subject. If your interest is similar to mine you won't be disappointed reading this book.

HASH(0x9c89548c) out of 5 stars like the NWA strap, ten pounds of solid gold. Dec 30 2014

Was made aware of this book via a link on the wrestling obsever, and having read reviews from the publishing industry on the buy page describing it as a 1930's era version of it, i was sold. To my delight the statement was not hyperbole, the book is a fascinating illustration of the era. Moreover, the comparison to the ovserver was apt in a sense that for any consumer of pro wrestling today, either the ravenous or discriminating appetite, the observer treats its subscribers and its subjects with that skilkfull mix of respect, reverance, reality and , really no other way to say it, no bulls*** approach that seems to be fading amongst reporters. This book serves as a both what will eventualy be a perfect book end to the observer, and an outstanding read on its own.

Good read if you're interested in the history/politics of pro wrestling. Hard to imagine a story being written this honestly almost 80 years ago--
