"Before I became a professional wrestler, everyone told me "You're gonna hurt yourself." They were right. But it was worth it." - Ben Nelson Creed This is the funniest, most brutally honest collection of pro wrestling stories you will ever read; all of them are completely unbelievable and completely true. Nelson takes you through his life, the life of a struggling dreamer, as he fights his way up the ranks of professional wrestlers. The text is lucid; the characters raw; and the stories better read about than lived. Think you know what it is like to be a wrestler? Think again. This is stuff you'll never see on TV or read about in any official superstar biography. This book is a must-read for any wrestling fan or would-be professional wrestler. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * "Very well done, and at times hilarious." -- Jeff Jarrett "The wrestling world is very different from most other aspects of life. Ben has encapsulated the likes of wrestlers, and other shenanigans, perfectly." --Tyson Kidd "Any book with a Romeo Adams chapter I have to buy." -- Eric Young "Worst Doink Ever." -- Sinn Bodhishow more
