Descripción del producto

Reseña del editor

Though professional wrestlers are usually ignored by sportswriters and entertainment reporters alike, the popularity of these gifted athletes and showbiz pros is undeniable. Few fans are concerned with whether the wrestling is "legitimate." From Ace Abbott to Buck Zumhofe, this is the second edition of the first-ever ("major contribution"--ARBA; "most informative"--Wrestling Then & Now) comprehensive compilation of biographical information on professional wrestlers past and present, including major promoters and managers. Each entry is listed under the wrestling name most often used, with cross references to real names and other ring names. The ring name is followed by the grappler's real name, hometown, height and weight, and birth and death dates when available. The biographical data provide the era in which the individual competed, wrestling associations, titles, tag team partners, major bouts and other highlights.

1.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Looks good, but not a factual book on many of the stars. 25 de mayo de 1999
Por Un cliente - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
The old saying goes, "Don't judge a book by its cover". This book looks good, but beyond the cover is filled with page after page of incorrect information regarding many of the wrestlers. Mr. Lentz certainly didn't take the time to research his information. I have been a collector and researcher of wrestling related items for nearly 40 years, and never have I picked up a book with so many errors in it. My advice is, if you want a book that looks good on your bookself, then this book is for you. But, if you are looking for a book that will provide factual information on wrestlings greatest performers of the past, then pass on this book! Sorry, this is not a reliable source of wrestling information to the serious collector or fan.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas The most complete listing of pro wrestlers 24 de octubre de 2003
Por wrbtu - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
I was looking for a book that would be a complete in-depth history of wrestling, but there doesn't seem to be one out there. This book has no photos (except for Lou Thesz on the cover), but it contains short bios of more pro wrestlers than any other book. Unfortunately, only the briefest of bios are provided (it basically lists championships won, with very little personal info provided). Height, weight, & birth dates are provided for some, but not most, wrestlers. Lentz has written some great books on film history for McFarland, but this one is a disappointment due to lack of more info in the entries (which is perhaps not possible given the subject matter). At first I thought this book lacked completeness, but after seeing other so-called wrestling "encyclopedias," this one is certainly the most complete. For example, a major star of the early 1960s, Argentina Apollo, gets no mention in any of the other wrestling books, but is included here. It's very dry reading for a wrestling book, & if you buy this one you should get at least a couple of other books with photos to accompany it. I'd like to see more info included in the entries (at least for the major stars) that would distinguish the wrestlers a bit more than the author has done here (for example, how they were innovative, what their style was, gimmicks used, special techniques, etc.). A worthy addition to your wrestling reference library, but will somebody please write a definitive encyclopedia on this subject? A second edition of this book is due in November 2003, but with only 20 or so additional pages, I doubt if it will expand the entries into what I was hoping for.
2.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Listing of Professional Wrestlers 28 de mayo de 2014

This biographical listing of professional wrestlers is a useful book but it is far from complete and has many notable errors. The limited and error ridden treatment of the "Zaharias Brothers" is a good example. (Theodore, Chris, and Tom Vetoyanis as well as their cousin, Chris Davros, wrestled as the Zaharias Brothers, respectively George, Chris, Tom and Babe.)

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas An outstanding reference 3 de febrero de 1998
Por Un cliente - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
Without a doubt, this is THE book to purchase if you are a pro wrestling fan. Filled to the brim with career highlights for over 500 wrestlers from the early 20th century right down to the days just before the formation of the NWO, Lentz has covered it all. I have found it to be an invaluable reference too, and worth every bit of it's price. TC Kirkham, Webmaster SyxxNet
