World Wrestling Insanity: The Decline and Fall of a Family Empire
Paperback : 300-pages
The nepotism, backward logic, and power plays behind the World Wrestling Entertainment's (WWE) downfall are exposed in this indictment of wrestling's first family. An analysis of the McMahons' poorly written scripts discloses how nepotism and vanity have taken over their creativity, while input from many well-known figures provides details on the complicated and seemingly endless web of manipulation that has led to such questionable behaviors as locker-room hazing and sexual indiscretions. WWE's racist undertones are also discussed, with a firsthand account on how being black affected one wrestler's match with a world champion.
James Guttman is a columnist for the Pro Wrestling Torch Newsletter and the author of the weekly JG's Raw Insanity column. He writes for London Publishing's family of magazines. He lives in Plainview, New York.
