Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

Has he read any books prior? Does he like gossip?

Every time the guys on TLF read from Diana Hart's book, its ****ing riotous. She writes about the locker room like its a ****ing soap opera.

That said, Diana Hart's book got only a brief publication run because of the fact that she seemingly libeled 10 people per page, so you have to pay through the nose to get that one.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

Diana Hart book is $98 on Amazon. Just based on the reading of passages from it during the SS 92 episode, I'd snap buy it if I wanted to waste a hundo.

edit: used is $32

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

I'm pretty sure he's read some due to the fact he enjoys reading generally speaking. I'll do some investigating and see what he's read/enjoyed etc. Also to rule out doubling up Will report back.

I enjoyed Jerichos first two books a lot if you can get past some of the stupider aspects of his writing (can't even source any right now but he used some stupid word in place of another one for no clear reason, can't remember which words though)

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

Jericho’s writing is so self-satisfied without reason.

If you’re going to be cocky about your writing, make sure you’re actually good at writing.

I looked for a gif of a wrestler hitting someone with a book, but was left disappointed

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

What area of the country is he from? If he watched any World Class or Georgia Championship Wrestling back in the day, I highly recommend Gary Hart’s book. Even if he hasn’t watched any of that, I still recommend it. I wouldn’t buy it though since it was a limited printing and copies of the book sell in the hundreds of dollars. You can find a pdf on the internet rather easily.

I went there after you PMed me the link, and I must say that there was not a name to be added. Literally everyone I could think of who I considered even marginally worthy was already nominated.

Your sentiment is common although there's a few I can think of not already on it.

Headbanger Thrasher?

Mosh gets all the headlines, but Thrasher was the heart and soul of that team

Quick little anecdote about him. I used to watch him in the early 90’s wrestle in the independents in NJ as The Spider. He was also a substitute teacher at my high school during this time as well.

So it's confirmed that Headbanger Thrasher participated in the first screwjob by taking the women's title off of Wendi Richter? I knew it.

Did he have a costume like Spider-Man?

No it wasn’t like Spider-Man. It was just a mask, maybe black and purple, that he wore.
