Wrestling in the Garden
The Battle for New York: Works, Shoots & Double-Crosses

by Scott Teal & J Michael Kenyon

  There has always been something special about attending an event in New York City — sporting events, theater, movies, concerts — and even though wrestling fans in the Northeast loved their local venues, when push came to shove, the one place they’d rather see wrestling than any other was Madison Square Garden.  For many years, the Garden was considered to be the wrestling Mecca, and many great moments in wrestling history took place with those walls.

This book, containing every wrestling event that took place in the Garden between Nov. 24, 1875, and Dec. 26, 2016, is the definitive, exhaustive record of professional wrestling in Madison Square Garden ... The World’s Most Famous Arena!

Dinner with the Legends of Wrestling

by Jeff Bowdren
edited by Scott Teal

In 2012, three friends – Dan Lambert, Robert Mitchell and John Menhennet – decided to invite one of the legends of professional wrestling to dinner, where they could talk to him about his experiences both inside and out of the squared circle.  They enjoyed themselves so much that they invited other friends – Jeff Bowdren, Bob McKeon, Greg Goode, and Duane Long – to join them for what would turn out to be a series of dinners with the wrestlers they idolized.  Bowdren, a wrestling fan known to everyone as "The Booker," took notes and recorded 24 interviews, each filled with anecdotes, tales of the road, and wrestling history.  This book is the product of his efforts.

BRUISER

BRUISER

by Richard Vicek
edited by Scott Teal

  There have been several "Bruisers" in pro wrestling, but the name synonymous with the sport was "Dick the Bruiser."  Bruiser cracked heads and pounded flesh in main events from coast to coast and overseas.  His in-ring style was believability, belligerence, domination, unpredictability, explosiveness, intensity, and rampage.

Whatever Happened to Gorgeous George?:
The Blood and Ballyhoo of Professional Wrestling

by Joe Jares

There is a world where truth, beauty, and innocence battle nightly with the insidious, subterranean forces of evil — evil in the guise of The Beast, The Crusher, and the Missouri Mauler, truth embodied in The French Angel, The Golden Superman, and Chief Big Heart.  It is the world of pro wrestling.  Come backstage with the boys and see what the brutal world of wrestling’s all about.

The Mat, the Mob & Music

The Mat, the Mob & Music
by Tom Hankins, with Scott Teal

  To most people, Tom Hankins is not a recognizable name in the world of professional wrestling, but he parlayed his talents into three careers: wrestling, music, and working for a mobster named Fat Eddie.  The stories he tells of all three occupations are wild and filled with incidents involving women, alcohol, drugs and violence, many of which involve the infamous Dr. Jerry Graham, one of pro wrestling's most colorful characters.

Replica posters
  
 
  "Classic Wrestling Poster Replicas" is a series of all-new posters created and produced by Scott Teal through Crowbar Press. Each poster features a classic wrestling card from the past. We have re-created posters from the golden age as closely as possible to the originals. For territories which had no posters, or for which we had no examples, we created them as we imagine they would have looked. We also created posters based on the style of the newspaper ads of the time.
These posters are NOT lithographs or mass-produced on cheap paper. Each poster is actually a high-quality, glossy PHOTOGRAPH which comes in three sizes — 8x10, 12x16, and 16x20 inches.
These beautiful posters are sure to become collector's items and more cards will be released in the near future. Our hope is they will help preserve the legacy of professional wrestling's legends and increase interest in the history of professional wrestling.
— HAVE YOUR NAME PRINTED ON ANY OF THE POSTERS! —
We can add YOUR NAME in the place of ANY wrestler on the poster for an extra $3. This offer is available for 16x20 posters only.
