-- Road Warrior Joe "The Animal" Laurinaitis has signed a book deal to release his nonfiction biography titled ROAD WARRIOR: My Life as Animal and a Regular Joe. Joe looks back on his career in the glory days of pro wrestling, from his humble beginnings learning the trade in dingy basements in Minnesota, the home state of the AWA, and the likes of Jesse Ventura and Ric Flair, to his rise to stardom with partner, Hawk, as the Road Warriors with Georgia Championship Wrestling (GCW), and later across other promotions like NWA and the WWF. Revealed are the power struggles between the various promotions, how the arrival of Vince McMahon changed the wrestling landscape, and the hard and often excessive lifestyle that took its toll on many pro wrestling greats, including Joe's partner, Hawk. This is the story of Animal & Hawk and of a guy named Joe, who's every dream came true. The book is currently set to hit store shelves in March 2011.
