WRESTLING BABYLON ‘A Powerful Collection’ — WrestlingObserver.com

Saturday, June 9th, 2007

WRESTLING BABYLON: Piledriving Tales of Drugs, Sex, Death, and Scandal is “a powerful collection … that cut[s] right to the heart of the matter in one scandalous subject after another,” reviewer Derek Burgan writes on the website of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Burgan adds that Irvin Muchnick’s new book about pro wrestling is marked by a unique style “that will appeal to both the hardcore wrestling fan and to people who don’t even like wrestling but appreciate a well written piece.”
