RIC FLAIR – In the words of the "Nature Boy" himself in 1986, at the pinnacle of the successful reign of the Horsemen.
"We take a lot of pride in being first class. We pay a lot of respect to J.J. Dillon, our leader ..."
TULLY BLANCHARD – "James was the crucial component that made us complete."
OLE ANDERSON – "Dillon made the Four Horsemen."
ARN ANDERSON – "J.J. Dillon is one of the classiest pros this business has ever known."
For more than 40 years, James J. Dillon has been involved in the world of professional wrestling. Now he speaks candidly on all aspects of both his career and his personal life.
This book has something for wrestling fans of all generations and ages:
• Being a wrestling fan in the 50's
• Breaking into the wrestling business as a referee during the 60's
• Wrestling in the territorial system of the 70's
• Taking leadership of the legendary Four Horsemen during the 80's
• Working with Vince McMahon in the WWF during the 90's
• Watching the monumental collapse of WCW in the 00's
J.J. Dillon offers a first-hand account and detailed history of one of the most influential wrestling promotions in wrestling history — the World Wrestling Federation. For 7½ years, JJ served in the WWF as Vince McMahon's top lieutenant, right-hand man, and Vice President. Never before has someone from McMahon's inner circle written a book with an insider's perspective of the company.
JJ also gives a insider's perspective on the ludicrous business decisions made by executives who took World Championship Wrestling down a path that led to the company's destruction and eventual demise.
From the highs of making big money, winning championship titles, rubbing elbows with top celebrities, and appearing on television every week — to the lows of filing for bankruptcy, extramarital affairs, divorces, and drug use — no stone is left unturned when J.J. Dillon tells his story.
In this book released by Crowbar Press, there are truly "no holds barred."
