Founded by Greg Oliver and John Powell, SLAM! Wrestling (http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Wrestling/home.html) changed the way North Americas true favorite pastime was presented on the web. With the backing of Sun Media and Canoe, SLAM! Wrestling brought pure journalism to the muddy waters of the pro wrestling media coverage. Never in the Internet Age had the squared circle been viewed with a keen eye by reporters and analysts who broke down the philosophy of wrestling and feted its legends, while also not being afraid to show the very human side of the locker rooms that are hidden from the plain eye inside the worlds biggest arenas.
SLAM! Wrestling takes readers on a journey through SLAM! Wrestlings first dozen years and the often all-too real world of professional wrestling. From WWE to the independent leagues that dot North Americas landscape, SLAM! Wrestling gives the unique view of the reporters eye as history unfolds, including interviews with Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena, The Rock Dwayne Johnson, Trish Stratus and many others.
Plus, for the first time ever, SLAM! Wrestlings writers take you behind the scenes and share their insights into what made the site stand out as one of the most respected sources for information in all of the Internet wrestling community. From the celebration of WrestleMania XVIII in Toronto, to the tragic death of Owen Hart and many others, SLAM! Wrestling has covered it all and now brings the history of the mat wars straight to your bookshelf.
