In this third volume of "Wrestling Archive Project," you will find interviews with the professional wrestling legends of yesteryear. Scott Teal, the man behind Crowbar Press, conducted most of these interviews in the days when the wrestlers refused to open up and break the code of "kayfabe." And yet, because of his friendship with them over several decades, they talked openly and told their stories in a frank, candid manner.
The "MAIN EVENT" for this volume is a retrospective of The Great Malenko, who terrorized wrestlers (and fans) in Florida for many years.
Two other exclusive interviews appearing in print for the first time are with Archie "The Mongolian Stomper" Gouldie and Leo Garibaldi.
Filling out this volume are interviews with Bill Blassie, Buddy Wayne, Dave Levin, The Fabulous Kangaroos (Al Costello & Roy Heffernan), Gus Raap, Ox Baker, Pat Barrett, Rip & Tim Tyler, and Scotty Williams. They all open up to Scott with details about their lives and careers as they have with no one else — before or since.
Plus, a feature titled "Two Hours in a Motel Room", in which Dick Beyer, Dick Steinborn, Don Fargo, Billy Wicks and Ted Allen all tell hilarious stories about the hijinks and behind-the-scenes ribs that took place during the golden years of professional wrestling.
Scott Teal does what he does best – sitting down with the wrestling legends and asking them tough, probing, insightful questions that give us an insight into what professional wrestling was all about in the days before "sports entertainment" became vogue. Go behind the scenes with the true legends of professional wrestling with indepth, hard-hitting, no-holds-barred interviews.
