Best wrestling books?

I know I’m late to the party, but I’m just finishing the Bret Hart book now. I’ve read the first two Mick Foley books previously, and wanted to get one of the “story of WCW” type books but wasn’t sure which to choose.

I know John used to say on the podcast that he really liked one, but I can’t remember which.

Any thoughts on that, or wrestling books in general?


Guy Evans’ “Nitro” book is really good. He has a ton of relevant guests interviewed in the book and does a lot of fact-checking with the information he is providing. It’s one of those books when you pick it up, it’s hard to put it down.

Death of WCW (2014 Edition) is a good one as well, though it’s not as in depth as Nitro but it is pretty good for laughs.


Death of wcw

Pure Dynamite

First two Jericho books kept my interest even tho I don’t love his writing style

Terry funk’s book is okay

I’m halfway through the David shoemaker book and it’s well done

+1 for death of WCW and Jericho’s first book.

Regal’s book is very good. There’s a lot of faith stuff in Eddy Guerrero’s book that doesn’t really speak to me, but it’s still a good book.

Bret’s book, mick’s first book and Jericho’s first book are my top three.

I really enjoyed jim Ross’s book and pre ordered his new one. I liked d. Bryan’s book. Justin Roberts was really good too in a different way.

Also, crazy like a fox, the bio.of Brian Pullman is highly recommended.

Jericho’s first book and second one are great.

One vote for Pure Dynamite!
