Randomly found a copy of The Pictorial History of Wrestling: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly at a small bookstore for a nice price. This book was my wrestling bible when I was a little kid, but I also ruined the black & white photos by coloring them in with crayons. Really happy to have a replacement copy complete with the dust jacket.

I then went to shelve the book and discovered that apparently I bought Shinsuke Nakamura's autobiography at some point. I'm assuming I did that during the two months I was on the shelf with a concussion earlier this year.

Yesterday I got hyped when I found out this fall there is a Hornswoggle book coming called Life is Short and So Am I that is currently up for pre-order with a September release.

Today I see they announce an incoming memoir by NEW JACK

I can promise you one of those will be vastly more entertaining than the other, and better have an audio version.

Tito Santana is coming out with an 2nd autobiography (1st one was a 100 page quickie a decade ago) next month called Don't Call Me "Chico". It's gonna include passages written by Jesse Ventura, Greg Valentine, and Konnan among others.

Also if you pre-order from Tito Santana's website before Christmas, you'll get a personalized phone call from the Arriba Man.

This book actually looks pretty dang interesting since Tito was one of the few guys on the roster during the '80s boom that didn't seem coked out of its gourd. Title also seems to indicate he might call out racist BS although maybe not since the dude who called him Chico is writing in it too.

Surprised no one knew Kane had a book out. I wouldn't mind reading it if I saw it for cheap. I bet there's lots of great stories in there.

JR has a new book coming out. His first one was a disappointment so I'm unlikely going to pick this one up unless I can get it for cheap.

I remember people posting that when the book first came out.  It’s strange, I’ve had no desire to pick up his last book.  In wrestling books alone I have plenty of others of higher interest, not to account for other reading.

I've heard him tell that story before, maybe on a podcast with Connie. Worst part is when I heard him tell that story, he did in a nonchalant "Well, parenting was different back then, folks." tone.  :o :o :o

JR doing one of his promos for Burger King or Skittles but instead of shilling junk food, he's talking excitedly about bludgeoning disabled puppies.
