Tributes II: Remembering More of the World's Greatest Professional Wrestlers (Wrestling Observer) Reviews
Auch der zweite Band bietet viele interessante Informationen aus dem Leben verstorbener Superstars der Wrestling-Szene. Die vorgestellten Sportler sind gut ausgewählt, viele bekannte Größen der letzten Jahre, dazu ein paar Persönlichkeiten aus den frühen Jahren des Wrestlings.Insgesamt bleiben die Texte aber eher oberfächlich, man hat fast immer das Gefühl, es müsste doch noch mehr zu sagen sein. Viele der Wrestler hätten zum Beispiel durch ein paar Anekdoten aus ihrem Leben besser charakterisiert werden können. So bleiben sie Alle etwas farblos. Manchmal wird nicht einmal erwähnt, woran denn die jeweilige Person überhaupt gestorben ist.
This book was pretty much top notch. dave meltzer is really great at writing for and about wresting. my only problem is there were some wrestlers in this that were already in other dave meltzer tribute books. it kind of feels like theyre put in as filler. its not bad enough that it ruins the books though. still an excellent read!!!
Another exciting read...brought me waaay back! Ahhh good times!
Book material of excellent quality as well as the writing. Enjoyed the book immensely. Would not hesitate to order from this source again.
great book, although i wished they would have included how, when, and why they died, and other peoples reaction
For those that lambaste wrestling as being "fake" I'll challenge them to take Judo for at least six weeks. The skill these athlete's show is under appreciated. The author takes into the backgrounds of those who pave the way for today's "sports entertainment" people. From Johnny Valentine who was acknowledged by Lou Thez in his auto "biography" "Hooker My Crazy Life in Professional Wrestling" for his toughness something he normally would not do because of his lack of respect for non-wrestlers, to the demons some wrestlers endured. The tragic demise of Owen Hart and the difficulties his father Stu Hart endured. The sadness of MS Elizabeth and her life behind the glitz and glamor of the business to the tragedy of a talented wrestler such as Terry Gordy who's excessive lifestyle lead to an early grave. For those was truly appreciated the history of this sport this is a must read.
