In 2001, the professional wrestling scene in the western world changed almost overnight. From three major promotions at the start of the year, just one remained by the start of April, ending more than a decade of competition. But success breeds complacency, and the five years since World Wrestling Entertainment stood triumphant over its rivals has seen unprecedented shifts in wrestling. Charting the highs and lows of the business in that time, Wrestling’s Sinking Ship offers a unique look at the fall and rise of sports entertainment’s most controversial characters. From necrophilia to exploitation, nostalgia to racism… oh, and don’t forget that fake gay wedding!
Available: in paperback (worldwide); Amazon Kindle (US, UK, Germany, France, Spain and Italy), iBooks (on the iTunes store, for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and the Nook store.
