The Grapple Manual
Heroes & Villains From the Golden Age of World WrestlingBook - 2006
Britain's undisputed wrestling icon has put together a hilarious look back at the bizarre world of professional wrestling in its golden age (1960 to 1987). Meet 30 world-famous wrestling personalities from Britain, Europe, and America in fascinating, anecdote- and photo-packed bios, featuring cross-dressing hulks, crotch-grabbing moves, sequined shorts, monstrous memorabilia, and 420-pound men in leotards. Try out the flamboyant, fully illustrated, fighting moves like superplexes, body splashes, pile-drivers, and flying clotheslines, and prove that anyone can put the showmanship back into self defense. Pure nostalgia and the ultimate book on the subject, it's a take-down gift for die-hard fans.
