Default info on The death of WCW book

Here's the official info from ECW press:

The Death of WCW is a historical - and hysterical - look at the downfall of what was at one time the most successful promotion in the history of professional wrestling.

In 1997, World Championship Wrestling was not only the top pro wrestling company in the entire world, but the highest rated show on cable television. Monday Nitro was a staple every week for millions of fans across the country. WCW's loyal fanbase flocked to sold out arenas, and proclaimed the promotion the savior of pro wrestling. Merchandise flew from store shelves. Sting, Bill Goldberg, and the New World Order became household words, and legitimate entertainment superstars like Dennis Rodman and KISS jumped on the WCW bandwagon. It seemed as if the company could do no wrong.

By 2001, however, the company, having lost a whopping ninety-five percent of its paying audience, was sold for next to nothing to Vince McMahon and World Wrestling Entertainment.

The questions behind the company's demise are numerous. How could a company lose their audience so quickly? Why did they put on shows so horrible that fans fled in horror? Who were the brain surgeons behind the collapse? In short…just what the hell happened to cause the death of one of the largest wrestling companies in the world?

The Death of WCW answers all these questions and more. Authors Bryan Alvarez (Figure Four Weekly) and R.D. Reynolds (WrestleCrap: The Very Worst of Pro Wrestling) take readers through the most detailed dissection of a wrestling company ever. It's the story that many within the industry don't want told, as their carefully crafted versions of the truth are about to be shattered.

Featuring behind-the-scene stories, readers will discover the true reason for the ultimate destruction of WCW: equal parts ego and greed, with a whole lot of stupidity thrown in for good measure.

The Death of WCW is slated for a fall 2004 release, and is available for preorder from High Spots (WrestleCrap's preferred vendor), Amazon, and Amazon Canada. You will not want to miss out on what is sure to be the hottest wrestling book this year, so preorder your copy today!
I'm looking forward to this book. wrestlecrap is perhaps my all time favourite book about wrestling. This should be a good book, and definitely one of the best wrestling books out there.
