  1. Thank you taker. that is all i can say. never got to see him perform live (i live in the middle east). wish i did. still,thank you taker a thousand times. i wish he would write an autobiography,though i doubt it,and i would be honored if i could meet him even one time.
  2. Pretty sad to hear that.RIP Ivan Koloff. One of the best "Russian Wrestlers" of all time. may his soul be in heaven now :'(
  3. you are welcome guys! Glad you enjoyed the package! BTW,I decided to make a "DLC Package"for Wrestling Books A-N,featuring the 21 A-N Wrestling books that i obtained since making the original Package. link already sent to every one i sent the original A-Z package to. Hope you enjoy it guys and looking forward to hearing your thoughts about it F*** Copyright. as a huge wrestling fan from the middle east,i wouldnt have been able to watch even one wrestling show or read even one wrestling book if the copyrights worked as the assholes wish they did. piracy is the reason i was able to keep my hobby,and eitherway none of these guys would have seen any money from me because i live in a country where their stuff isnt availableby any "legitimate"means. i intend to write some books in the future,and you can be sure that i will post a pirated version of my book alongside the normal version,because i lived it and i understand it. well said
  4. you are very welcome man! hope you enjoy them! thanks reached without the need to sing though lol XD as for your question,i didnt compile the N-Z portion. i originally intended to do it later. now i dont know. that experience turned me off the whole thing >_>.
  5. True. it is quite annoying. you'd think the damn assholes would say thanks,not say that you are suspicious/the FBI lol. PM Sent
  6. Thanks for the link and the kind Words! PM sent
  7. thanks very much for the link man! it has a ton of awesome stuff
  8. i intended to delete it anyway. that board turned out to be the biggest group of assholes i ever saw in my life. i post an incredible collection,over 250 unique wrestling books for free,biggest free wrestling books collection in the entire history of the internet,and they react by calling me names. funniest one was when one of them said i was the FBI. you cant make this s*** up. talk about a bunch of crazy ass people. and the most annoying part is that over 50 of them downloaded it,yet not a single one posted a thank you/told the others to STFU because i was saying the truth. talk about doing tons of good and,instead of getting thanked and high 5ed,getting bit in the ass big for it. anyway. PMed you a link to the A-N part of the collection(originally intended to post N-Z later. now not so sure). hope you enjoy it from reading this topic,i assume that posting the links here would be not allowed,right?if that is the case then i am willing to pm those who ask
  9. also,found this interesting article: http://www.pwponderings.com/2016/11/08/the-modern-revival-of-all-japan/
  10. also guys,if any of you want a treasure trove of wrestling books then google "The Ultimate Pro Wrestling Books Collection". you are welcome would like to hear your questions/comments/Thoughts about it guys. i like to know that my very hard work is appreciated
  11. i hope you dont misunderstand me. i am not disagreeing(except for point 4). i am just trying to understand it.i am thankful for your replies and i hope mine didnt annoy you 1:so it was basically the same deal as the WWF in the 80s. gotcha. 4:because no decent booker was there at the time. no matter how bad their roster was,it certainly was better than what heyman had to work with. good bookers turn chicken s*** into chicken salad. 7:if AJPW is currently japan's ROH(3rd company),then what is japan's TNA(2nd company)? NOAH?
  12. 1:" AJPW was a mom and pop shop " um. it was a huge company with tons of employees. that is the exact opposite of"mom and pop shops" :/. were there more reasons that lead to the other wrestlers leaving with misawa?i just cant imagine a mass quitting spree just because a wrestler-turned-booker quit,no matter how popular said guy was. he wasnt even screwed or backstabbed like bret did,yet very few people quit over montreal(IIRC only rick rude,davey boy smith,and ,for one day only,Foley). heck vince literally told anyone who wants to leave to do so and no one did lol. i know that the Japanese care about camaraderie far more than the americans,but someone leaving over creative differences is as normal as breathing in wrestling lol. 3:no matter what the culture is,a TV contract is legally binding to both parties. the japanese are business men too. they cant simply just leave. 4:so even back then NJPW had pretty much won. good on them for actually being good and not assholes like vince lol. "help and be helped"is not in vince's dictionary XD 5:that point is simply not true in wrestling though. again,look at WWF in 1994. all their big names were gone. yet in only 3 years they created new big names. look at heyman in ECW. he created stars out of garbage.in professional wrestling,one smart booker is all you need to fill your roster with stars. as for your reputation point,even when WWF in 1994 was like this,it was still the place that most new wrestlers hoped to go to. why?because of its reputation and name. reputation gives you the best of the hungry new talent,who can easily be converted to stars within 1 or 2 years. reputation ALWAYS maters 6:i get that in cases like when Iwata slashed his salary in half,because he was the president of Nintendo and made/approved the decisions that led to the 3ds not selling well,thus he felt personally responsible and punished himself by cutting his salary in half. however,in this case not only was the matter in no way,shape,or form Muta's fault,not even indirectly,but that was a matter that wasnt uncommon at all in wrestling,and was even advocated by multiple bookers to settle your differences in the locker room so that it doesnt spill out into the ring. so,why was this one case so much of a big deal? 7:both of them,although atleast tenryu was somewhat understandable because they were desperate.
  13. thanks for the replies! a few questions: 1:didnt baba's wife own AJPW after he died?how come she didnt simply say"i own the damn company. you follow my orders. end of discussion"like any other wrestling company owner(heck,any company owner in general)?or simply replace him as booker with whomever was booker during baba's days?also,does she still own it? 2:How much were the nelson ratings for AJPW around the time Baba died?and how much are they now? 3:how can the tv deal follow him?first,those tv deals are binding for many years. the station cant simply randomly decide to leave. second,what reason would the station have to leave a company that was giving them INCREDIBLE ratings for more that a third of a decade just because some top guys left?by that logic wwe in 1995 would have been off the air,as literally all their big names were taken by wcw. 4:how did NJPW agree to an inter-promotional feud with their hated rival?and how was it booked?did the AJPW guys get squashed like the invasion?doubt it,as that storyline apparently helped them,but somehow i cant see the winning company(NJPW,WWF)helping the losing company(AJPW,WCW)or making their guys look strong in anyway :/ 5:with AJPW's great reputation and ratings,How come no rich billionaire bought it and helped it back to its feet?or the channel its self ALA Ted Turner with WCW? 6:i really dont get the"muta stepping down"bit. locker room fights are as normal as breathing in wrestling. putting someone in a coma is a bit extreme,but a suspension or a firing of the guy who did would have been more than enough. why would muta step down over something that was in no way his fault,and was actually not unusual? 7:how could a backstabber become president of the company? sorry for the many questions,and thanks again guys
  14. ok. a few more details please?i am legit curious. AJPW and NJPW were like WWF VS WCW. sometimes AJPW was on top,sometimes NJPW was. what happened to make AJPW fall off the radar so much? to my knowledge,they didnt hire russo lol XD
  15. ...f%%%. just went to it again,only to find that google deleted it
  16. One book that doesnt get much love is "Atlas:Too Much...Too Soon"by Tony Atlas. it is brutally honest,quite enjoyable to read,and has TONS of great stories and quotes. to entice you to get it,here are a few awesome quotes from it: and a few funny stories to LOL at
  17. i know that lol. i meant what actually happened,in a bit more detail than that
  18. AJPW was great. WTH happened to it??!! seriously,can anyone explain to me why it is almost dead?its situation seems as bad as WCW in 2000 also,you guys know about the google drive folder that has all ROH shows,right?
  19. HIGHLY Disagree with these.it was one of the best autobiographies i ever read. he is as brutally honest in it as bob holly is in his,and it is very informative and interesting. only thing i didnt like is him not talking about the 4 horsemen at alol,but the reason,as he explained in shoot interviews,is that he loaths that stable and regrets ever being a part of it as he believes that it was "all show business". EDIT: "An interesting new book that will go behind-the-scenes of WWE is set to be released in 2015. "Nude and Rude: The Naked Endeavors of WWE Superstars" will be hit store shelves in February. The book, written by a former WWE employee under the pseudonym "John Dough", will, according to publishing company ECW Press, "take the audience on a journey into what the WWE superstars do when their clothes are off and nobody is watching". Upon reading the press release, we contacted the publishing company to get more information. They sent us the following e-mail: "You need not worry about our "Nude and Rude: The Naked Endeavors of WWE Superstars" book. This will not be an expose on wrestling or wrestlers. The book will not be about the sexual activity of WWE stars, merely the funny moments that happen in and out of the locker room while the wrestlers are undressed. For example, the writer tells a story in which a wrestler placed a pair of "googly eyes" on his buttocks and then proceeded to shake, much to the amusement of the guys in the locker room. Another story features a wrestler who fell asleep in the shower while other wrestlers showered with him still lying there. Still another talks about a female wrestler who flashed a celebrity guest moments before he was to enter the arena. These are the kinds of stories you'll find in the upcoming book. The wrestlers will be named, but we feel there is nothing for them to feel ashamed of. The stories are all innocent fun that happen to involve nudity. The intent is not to ruin careers or cause scandals." Upon our asking, they also confirmed that the author proved to them, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he is is indeed a former WWE employee. For his own protection, they wouldn't reveal his name or even his role within WWE, as the subject matter will undoubtedly make him very unpopular with his peers. It should be noted that while ECW Press has published a number of wrestling books, the initials in its name are purely coincidental." WTH Happened to this book lol? sounds incredible XD
  20. I heard it is full of bullshit i bought it and read it. it is awesome. some stuff might seem like lies but i managed to validate it through research. the book says the truth,even if it at first might seem too unbelievable sometimes also,LOVE Gary's book!i have TONS of respect for him after reading it. He was a manager's manager and a booker's booker :')
