For Immediate Release
New Book Tells The Life Stories Of Britain’s TV Era Wrestlers
For six years, the stars of Britain’s ITV wrestling -- many speaking candidly for the first time -- told their stories to Fighting Spirit Magazine’s John Lister. Now these in-depth biographies of more than 50 grapplers come together in “Have A Good Week… Till Next Week”, the ultimate history of the ‘World of Sport’ era. From Adrian Street to William Regal, from Tiny Tom Thumb to Giant Haystacks, these are the true stories of amazing lives in and out of the ring.
The book also contains articles on wrestling at the Royal Albert Hall and Wembley Arena; the FA Cup Final special shows; wrestling in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland; the pre-TV era; and the most in-depth and revealing history of Joint Promotions, the British equivalent to the NWA.
The print edition has free shipping while Kindle Unlimited members can read the book free of charge.
