The Death of WCW
330 pages, ECW Press
“What a truly fantastic reading experience. Exhaustively researched, incredibly entertaining, to put it bluntly – YOU MUST GET THIS BOOK. The Death of WCW is not just the best wrestling book of 2004, it is the best book on wrestling done to date.” – Derek Burgan, Pro Wrestling Torch
“It’s not hard to find case studies about business failures. But it would be hard to find another one with the same kind of bizarre and amusing twists, turns and “what were they thinking?” moments that are featured inThe Death of WCW. ” – Forbes.com
In 1997, World Championship Wrestling was not only the top pro wrestling company in the entire world, but the highest rated show on cable television. Monday Nitro was a staple every week for millions of fans across the country. WCW’s loyal fanbase flocked to sold out arenas, and proclaimed the promotion the savior of pro wrestling. Merchandise flew from store shelves. Sting, Bill Goldberg, and the New World Order became household words, and legitimate entertainment superstars like Dennis Rodman and KISS jumped on the WCW bandwagon. It seemed as if the company could do no wrong.
By 2001, however, the company, having lost a whopping ninety-five percent of its paying audience, was sold for next to nothing to Vince McMahon and World Wrestling Entertainment.
The questions behind the company’s demise are numerous. How could a company lose their audience so quickly? Why did they put on shows so horrible that fans fled in horror? Who were the brain surgeons behind the collapse? In short…just what the hell happened to cause the death of one of the largest wrestling companies in the world?
The Death of WCW answers all these questions and more. Authors Bryan Alvarez (Figure Four Weekly) and R.D. Reynolds (WrestleCrap: The Very Worst of Pro Wrestling) take readers through the most detailed dissection of a wrestling company ever. It’s the story that many within the industry don’t want told, as their carefully crafted versions of the truth are about to be shattered.
Featuring behind-the-scene stories, readers will discover the true reason for the ultimate destruction of WCW: equal parts ego and greed, with a whole lot of stupidity thrown in for good measure.
