Rate this:
Thrilling but flawed, entertaining despite the swerves and double-crosses, captivating even when repugnant - professional wrestling has enjoyed the attention and loyalty of untold millions for nearly a century. Why? Here, Matysik explains what it takes to win the hearts and minds of wrestling fans, examines the way wrestling is booked or planned, analyses the role of wrestlers and announcers and explores the problem of steroids. At times humorous, occasionally saddening and always insightful, Drawing the Heat the Hard Way is a great, objective glimpse into wrestling.
