One glaring example is the famous "Squeegee Sid" incident. Long time fans know that Brian Pillman and Sid Vicious got into an argument in a bar one night and a hot headed Sid went out to the parking lot and came back with the only weapon he could find – a squeegee. With all the wrestlers in the bar laughing at him, he was calmed down and he left the bar shortly thereafter. At no point did the altercation ever get physical, although the book claims that Sid had gotten the squeegee after Brian Pillman had beaten the shit out of him. There are inaccuracies like that throughout the book that it's hard to know what's real and what isn't.
Overall, the book isn't boring, it's just disappointing. It's a book that could have been a lot more. I know a lot of people after the Benoit tragedy had ideas on writing books or producing documentaries that would help bring change to the industry. Ring of Hell: The Story of Chris Benoit and the Fall of the Pro Wrestling Industry is one such book that tries, but ultimately fails because it forgets to treat the subject matter, its fans and performers with any respect.
