Cross post with the wrestling merch thread. We’ve discussed before Countdown to Lockdown being decent. RVD is selling his copy from his collection (that apparently he bought from Big Lots)

Had anyone read Dutch Mantel's book, The World According to Dutch "? I'm halfway through. I paid $25 which was the cheapest I could find it. So far it's an easy read but nothing great. One thing I found interesting was he an Jeff Jarrett were asked to wrestle for a PBS type special where they wrestled while a percussion orchestra was playing behind them. I watched a clip on YouTube and it is something to see.

Still really curious about that. I think this could be surprisingly real good or a bust. I defintely think, at least, it won't be a boring rote wrestler autobiography.

Mox book looks like it's just transcriptions of Mox rambling his life story.

Definitely will buy this.

It appears that Mox will be doing the reading for his own audiobook. I liked the Bucks’ audiobook, but the person reading messed up so many names. Hearing Moxley read his own book, especially pages like this, is going to be amazing.

Finding out from the TNA History podcast that Bert Prentice's autobiography just came out posthumously. I might have to pick it up for the early TNA stories and to see if there are any good Jingus stories.

Has anyone read the Mad Dog Vachon biography? I got a copy about a month or so ago and it's in a big pile of books-to-read.

I guess I'd rather read it than Tyrus' book.
Any review of this? Kind of curious to hear his take on the WWF backstage + the ECW era from his arrival to him being pushed as the man towards the end of the promotion.
