I’ve heard good things about this book series from several of the people on the old school wrestling podcasts I listen to regularly.
That being said, I really wanted to check this one out first, as I’m a massive fan of old school tag team wrestling because it’s an art that seems lost in the modern era and because so many of the legendary tag teams were just too cool for f’n school.
This does a great job of providing mini-biographies on the greatest teams the sport of wrestling has ever seen up to the early ’00s. It covers all the different eras going back to the beginning of tag team wrestling.
The book is well organized, well researched and it discusses the teams and the wrestling stars with great care.
All in all, this was a thoroughly enjoyable read and I especially liked it because I don’t think tag teams get enough love.
Pairs well with: other books from this series, as well as other historical wrestling books.
