Full of revealing interviews with the sport's past and present stars and candid shots from the world's foremost wrestling photographers, this book celebrates the game at its very strangest Culled from 100 years' worth of mat mayhem, this collection reveals the pseudo-sport's oddest bouts—from the contest in which a tag team lost their championship belts six days before they won them, to the match that took place in an exploding swimming pool. With a cast that includes Hulk Hogan, Kendo Nagasaki, Muhammad Ali, Andy Kaufman, a wrestling robot, and a monkey, this book takes fans well beyond the accepted canon of headlock history.
