In this update of the Death Of WCW, which has about double the pages of the original book, many things are covered that weren't in the original such as various angles that weren't covered the first book such as the Black Scorpian angle, the monster truck battle between Big Show and Hulk Hogan, and several more and they all have a common theme, they make absolutely no sense, a WCW tradition.

A real eye opener was Jim Herds comments. Herd, who famously fired Ric Flair in the summer of following failed contract negotiations, basically admits that firing Flair was a huge mistake and that he was the best performer in the entire company by far.

It's amazing what hindsight does to people. Moving on, the book has new asides. Lance Storm also talks about his first night in the WWE which is a good read.

It's too bad Vince Russo was not interviewed for this book. I would have loved to hear his side of things as he's portrayed as a clueless baffoon throughout the first and second versions of the book. Jim Cornette, a sworn enemy of Russo, rips him for his lack of understanding of psychology in wrestling. Psychology in wrestling is extremely important so it's easy to see why Russo struggled so much in WCW as nothing he came up with made any sense.

It was long accepted as fact but Bischoff said he had nothing to do with in his book and there's nothing else to back up the claim so out it went. At the end of the book is a long list, though I swear it's only a partial list of the general idiocy in TNA, with many mistakes eerily similar of the mistakes WCW made. Anyway it's definitely worth the money even though it's largely the same book.

Learning about the ebbs and flows of Hardcover Verified Purchase. Sources notwithstanding I generally question online dirt sheet facts due to the very evasive nature of the wrestling business and the people inside of it , even if some of the facts may be a bit skewed, such a good read.

Learning about the ebbs and flows of one of the biggest 'grab defeat from the jaws of victory' stories in the history of sports OR entertainment, you are taken back to a time, possibly the last, when wrestling could do no wrong. Attendance figures, ratings, financial figures; even if you're not a numbers guy and just wanna hear about backstage scuttlebutt, this is an excellent read for a slightly-above hardcore-level wrestling fan especially if you lived through the Attitude Era.

One person found this helpful. One day while listening to a podcast I heard Bryan Alvarez being interviewed and he mentioned the 10th anniversary book was available for Kindle so I decided to get it. I also really liked the additions at the end of chapters where Alvarez highlights what brought down WCW in the chapter and did current organizations learn from these past mistakes.

Spoiler the answer is usually "no". For younger readers it is a good look at what amounts to a minute in wrestling history. The is a revised edition of the original book and is a great cautionary tale of what not to do when running a wrestling promotion. WCW, for what it's worth made history that changed the face of pro wrestling. There will never be another wrestling promotion that can compete with McMahon's WWE within the next decade or ever.

Those who lived to witness the "Golden Age" of wrestling in the mid to late 90s will never forget the days when story lines were at their peek and wrestling was the hottest thing going. This book covers a lot of ground and gives you a sense of what went wrong in WCW which killed itself with mismanagement of talent and money.

Not a bad read but the writing style does get tedious after a while.

Fun to get a different picture of all the behind the scenes shenanigans. Sorry they screwed it up so badly though, I really liked WCW during it's better years.

A very easy and well structured read. The authors, for the most part, try not to speculate on the faults of WCW as a company, but rather present facts and historical examples of the business where WCW management didn't learn.

This leads a reader to consider how a business is impacted, not just a wrestling business, by faulty management. While the authors most likely don't have business degree backgrounds and why they probably didn't elaborate more on business theory the book can be a good teaching tool for any company executive.

Ultimately you see that a company who adopts a 1 or None mindset will eventually achieve the later part of that goal. To see how management could take a guaranteed successful property for several decades to come, provided the show minimal fiscal responsibility, and disregard that responsibility at ever opportunity, serves to remind how fast a fun thing like WCW can turn to tragedy.

For a wrestling fan, this book is the ultimate recap of found memories and what could have been. So many sport books and documentaries focus on athletes that never lived up to potential.

WCW is the ultimate example of this. No former 1 draft pick, All American, Collegiate Player of the Year who busted in pros can match how WCW went from being the most dominate name in the industry to the industry's biggest joke.
