Slam! Wrestling: Shocking Stories from the Squared Circle

Hot on the heels of Waxheaven's preview of the upcoming Topps WWE sets, I thought it would be appropriate to let you know that, another colleague of mine from Card Corner Club, Jon Waldman is also releasing a book this fall, Slam! Wrestling: Shocking Stories from the Squared Circle

In addition to his work at Card Corner Club, Jon has been a long-time staffer with the premier wrestling website, SLAM! . Slated for a November 1st release date, it is available for presell on Amazon.com.

From the back cover:

From the celebration of WrestleMania XVIII in Toronto to the tragic death of Owen Hart, this collection features highlights from SLAM! Wrestling's 12-year history. Interviews with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, John Cena, "The Rock" Dwayne Johnson, and Trish Stratus seamlessly mesh with stories about the World Wrestling Entertainment megalith and the independent leagues that dot the North American landscape while striking photographs tell a visual tale. Founded by journalists yearning to break free from traditional sports coverage, the SLAM! Wrestling website has been a haven for fans and an inspiration to the internet wrestling community; behind-the-scenes information on the site's staff and insight into its ever-growing popularity is also included.

Greg Oliver is the co-founder of SLAM!, a website dedicated to professional wrestling in North America. He is the author of The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame: The Canadians and coauthor of The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame: The Heels and The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame: The Tag Teams. He lives in Toronto, Ontario. Jon Waldman is a veteran SLAM! staffer. He lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Retail price is $17.95 available through Amazon.com for $12.21.
