Publisher's Weekly Review

Back in the U.S., Floyd Connor (Baseball's Most Wanted) pays tribute to a national phenom in Wrestling's Most Wanted: The Top 10 Book of Pro Wrestling's Outrageous Performers, Punishing Piledrivers, and Other Oddities. Deftly matching form to content, Floyd rates the best-dressed, the ugliest, the most mentally unsound, the most occult, the sexiest and every other conceivable category of world-class wrestler, supplying juicy blurbs about each contender. From Chyna to Shark Boy to "IRS agent" Irwin R. Schyster, everyone gets their 15 seconds in the spotlight. 20 b&w photos. ( Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
