Tonight in this very Ring Being a huge wrestling fan, you might be surprised to know that I avoid wrestling books like the plague. They aren't well written, penetrating or interesting. Wrestling fans want dirt in their wrestling books, and because wrestling is such a political business no one within it wants to burn too many bridges by coming out with a juicy tell-all. Despite the fact that's what wrestling fans are really clamoring for, wrestlers have to look after themselves first if they want to work in the ever-shrinking job market that is the professional wrestling of today. Until now I’ve only read one wrestling book from cover to cover- the critically lauded Mick Foley’s “Foley Is Good”, which was light and entertaining, not particularly informative but an enjoyable timewaster. I’ve thumbed through "Tributes: Remembering Legends Wrestlers" by Dave Meltzer, which had some interesting stories about some of the greats who are no longer with us, and I read the first few chapters of "Sex, Lies and Headlocks" by Shaun Assael and Mike Mooneyham, but that’s it.
