Â Â "If I had realized that you people would be so damned stupid as to give the world champion $750,000, I would have made myself the champion."
â€” Ole Anderson, to the executives at WCW and WTBS
Â Â Here, for the first time, Ole Anderson finally tells his story.Â Â The people who know him, know that Ole is never hesitant to speak his mind â€” and this book is no exception.
Â Â Combining facts and opinion, Ole's biography is a straightforward look at the many phases of his career in the wild, if somewhat seedy, world of professional wrestling.Â Â From his days in amateur wrestling, to the time when he hooked up with Gene and Lars Anderson as the Minnesota Wrecking Crew, Ole relates 30-plus years of never-before-told stories.
Â Â Ole tells of his feuds, both inside the ring and out, with people like Ric Flair, Wahoo McDaniel, Mr. Wrestling, Dusty Rhodes, and Bill Watts.
Â Â However, his biggest feuds took places behind the scenes in the halls and offices of corporate giant, Superstation WTBS.Â Â The matches in the ring were nothing compared to his battles with The Suits, corporate executives like Vince McMahon, Jim Barnett, Bill Shaw, Jim Herd, and Eric Bischoff.Â Â In Ole's own words, "The wrestling matches may have been staged and scripted, but there was nothing â€˜fake' about the corporate and legal battles."
Â Â As a former wrestler, booker, promoter, owner, and executive producer, Ole goes deeper in the inner workings of professional wrestling than anyone ever has.Â Â He tells the stories about financial, legal, and drug problems that plagued the wrestling business.
Â Â It doesn't matter whether you hate wrestling or love it.Â Â This is a powerful story about a man who stood up to the establishment.Â Â His insight, humor, and colorful use of the English language makes this a "no-holds barred" book that you won't be able to put down.
