Exposing how wrestling really works—how it is booked, promoted, reported on, and broadcast, as well as how steroids come into play—this book scrutinizes the sport's power brokers, including Vince McMahon, and analyzes how announcers and wrestlers are reshaping the sport through illusion and spectacle that, despite mistakes and controversies, continues to win the devotion of fans. Revealing personal experiences with zeal, this tell-all is the ultimate take on what it means to be a wrestling fan from someone who understands the inner workings of the business."
