About the Book
Pro Wrestling FAQ  is a bit of sport, entertainment, and art form, all put into one. With a certain intangible extra something thrown in for good measure, this book makes professional wrestling a truly unique entity unto itself. From its origins in carnivals and sideshow attractions of the 19th century, right up to the multimillion-dollar, multimedia industry of the present day, and all the bizarre, wild, and woolly points in between, Pro Wrestling FAQ delves into the entire history and broad scope of one of popular culture's most enduring yet ever-changing spectacles.   Amazon      BarnesandNoble    IndieBound
