I've read a few, but want to read more.  However, I don't want to spend money on too many as I've read a few stinkers (Jerry Lawler).

So, I'll check the local library for a few, if we can put a list together.

Here's what I can recall -

J.J. Dillon
Terry Funk
Ole Anderson
Ivan Koloff
Assassin Jody Hamilton
Shawn Michaels
Ric Flair
Chris Jericho
Mick Foley (3 books)
Edge
Steve Austin
Eric Bischoff
The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame: The Tag Teams
The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame: The Heels
Dusty Rhodes

That's all I can recall, please add more if you can think of them....

Eddie Guerrero

Missy Hyatt

Falls Guys- This book is from the 1930s. Only reprints are available.

Gotch An American Hero- Frank Gotch book. Pretty good actually if you can get past the worship.

Superstar Billy Graham

Stu Hart

The Stampede Wrestling Book. I forgot the name. It's very good.

The Bruiser Brody books. I liked Emerson Murray's better than Larry Matysik's.

Dusty Rhodes- Don't get it.

Harley Race

There's a book called The Death of WCW. One of the most poorly written pieces of schlock I've ever read.

Lawler's It's Good to be the King . . . Sometimes. Best part is King in a threesome in a limo and the drivers' reaction: "You is the king!"

Sex, Lies and Headlocks, the journalistic scoop-ola that said that Undertaker threw Mankind off of the Hell in a Cell at the 1998 PPV titled . . . Hell in a Cell.

the Stampede book is Pain & Passion - The History Of Stampede Wrestling and is a very good read, a new book out now by Gary Howard up here in Ontario called The Rassler From Renfrew about Larry Kasaboski's Northland Wrestling is a good one

"Sex Lies and Headlocks" is an error-ridden trainwreck.

Lawler's book was good on the beginning of the Memphis days-stories of Sam Bass, Jerry Jarrett, and the Gulas family were actually entertaining.  It turned into complete shit after that. 

Didn't Chyna write a book?:D

Eddie Guerrero and William Regal's books were completely interchangable, just replace Mexico with England.

I ended up keeping Regal's and selling Eddie's on ebay.

Drawing Heat which I think focused mostly on Bearman McKigney.

Sailor White also put out a book.
