Wrestling Observer's the Top 100 Pro Wrestlers of All Time is much more than just a ranking of wrestling's elite performers. It is a salute to the men and women who suffered enormous hardship by physically taxing their bodies every time they stepped inside the ring all for the sake of entertaining the crowd. The lives of the industry's biggest stars come to life on these pages, as their careers are examined thoroughly and put into the proper perspective. Historians, reporters, wrestlers and experts are consulted, providing countless stories and first-hand accounts of the lives of wrestling's seminal figures. Read about the meteoric rise of Ric Flair, the macabre death-shroud surrounding the Von Erichs, the slaying of Bruiser Brody, the cultural phenomenon of Mexico's El Santo and the indomitable, bristling spirit of Lou Thesz. Along the way, readers will uncover an historical account of the wrestling industry that stands in direct contrast to the revisionist version long touted by Vince McMahon and others, making Wrestling Observer's the Top 100 Pro Wrestlers of All Time an indispensible addition to any fan's wrestling library.
