Stamp has a book coming out, and haven't we all been waiting breathlessly for it.

http://astore.amazon.com/pwincom-20/detail/1501089315


Before attaining a cult fan following as a result of his appearance in the documentary film Beyond the Mat, Dennis Stamp was a wrestling star who competed across the globe.

In his career, he faced the very best athletes in his profession, and worked in various territories of the National Wrestling Alliance, the American Wrestling Association and across Japan. Stamp shares some of his favorite stories and poems which celebrate an industry filled with moments and characters that are simply larger than life.

In these tales, Stamp recounts the intensity of his greatest matches, and provides us with anecdotes from a life on the road with the top stars of his generation. He reveals the inspiration that kept him fighting in his battle to survive cancer and shares the emotion of the many friendships he built with promoters, his fellow wrestlers and the fans.

In these tales, Stamp reveals that one time he was a whiny bitch in a famous documentary

I wonder how he'll spin it?

This is one that I won't consider buying. Art Crews' book was more appealing.

I"m reading Ole Anderson's book now in ebook format and to be honest...it's pretty fucking boring. The format seems to be this

1: Lick the taints of Verne Gagne, Danny Hodge and Jack Brisco every Chapter

2: Repeat the same statement in 10 different formats every chapter

3: Constantly tell the reader fringe elements of stories from back in the day, but no real depth in any of them.

4: Tell us how much you hate Eric Bischoff over and over.........and over and over again.

5: Tell us in 9489292354 x 10th degree how much you hate Jim Herd and Bill Shaw.

As I recall he spends a good bit of time bragging about physically taking advantage of marks while taking their money (even describes his sugar hold in detail), and makes very sure the readers realize everyone sucked at booking, except himself.

I thought it was an interesting books.  If I recall (and it's been years since I've read it), he goes in depth on the booking processes, gates, and pay-outs during several periods of time.
