Got this from a guy at PW

Quote:
A new book titled "Ring of Hell" is out with scandalous details on the backstage scene in Japan, ECW, WCW, and WWE. The book goes into theories as to what drove Chris Benoit to kill his son Daniel and wife Nancy.

The book also has details on other backstage stories not necessarily related to Chris Benoit. Former WWE writer Dave Lagana, who was fired from WWE is mentioned in the book. Writer Michael Randazzo V cites sources that claim that Lagana was released because he was offering sexual favors to male and female talent.

In his latest podcast on prowrestling.net Jason Powell mentions that he has heard this rumor and that Lagana propositioned Kevin Thorne. Kevin Thorne reported the incident to The Undertaker and Undertaker took it up to Vince McMahon. The original story of Lagana's firing was that he was thought to be a leak to wrestling news websites. However, the book states that it was a coverup.

Some of the stories may sound hard to believe but Randazzo does have sources (including former WWE writers) to back up many of the claims in the book.

Here are excerpts from the book:

"In addition to being WWE stars, Nash and Hall, along with their buddy Shawn Michaels, had been genius backstage politicians. Pooling their professional leverage and considerable charisma, they concentrated like no one since Hogan on obtaining maximum power, maximum pay, and maximum privileges from McMahon--for which they should be commended. Their calculated mind games against their colleagues were less worthy of plaudits: they would **** in the food and bags of the women who rejected their advances, berate workers who did not use speed and pain pills, and use their near hypnotic pull on McMahon (who was commonly rumored within the industry to have a psychosexual fixation on Michaels) to get away with power trips that shattered the confidence and morale of their competition. To Nash and Hall, the wrestling business was a cutthroat team sport in which ruthless self-gratification was their only goal, and they played this sport with skill and killer instinct. They were good enough to play Vince 'Emperor of Carnies' McMahon like a hapless mark, and in 1996 they were again facing authentic hapless marks in WCW."
__________________

"Deranged marks like Hart and Benoit were the easiest targets imaginable. Hall would walk up to Benoit backstage 'real friendly like' and say, 'I love your finish! I can't wait to kick out of it!' On another occasion, Hall began talking to Benoit in a casual, chummy manner, relaxing him, making him feel special like a nerd in high school who is finally getting treated like a human being by the jock bully. Midway through the conversation, Benoit realized that Hall had covertly taken out his d*ck and was pissing on Benoit's cowboy boots."


Other topics in the book include:

- Antonio Inoki buying an island from Fidel Castro because Castro told him that there was buried treasure underneath the island.

- Benoit threatening WCW executives that he would mutilate himself on live TV if forced to go through with a storyline he didn't want to be involved in.

- Vader once got tied up by the Yakuza and they started making little cuts all around Vader's body as some sort of ritual.

- Former WWE writer Dan Madigan's story of sharing a limo with the McMahons and HHH in which he witnessed Vince very gently cradle and snuggle Stephanie to sleep in his arms, then fall snoringly asleep himself, only to catch HHH looking at them drool onto each other and snore into each other's faces with a mixture of utter repulsion and spectacular triumph.

- Trainees in the NJPW dojo being subjected to anal rape if they complained about the food and Jusin Liger would punching rookies. There are stories of people being forced to do pushups while veteran wrestlers urinated on their backs, being sexually molested in the showers, and being made to drink their own semen.

- Paul Heyman talks about his drug use in the book but denies the rumors of being Marty Jannetty's drug dealer.

- Dean Malenko was allegedly Eddie Guerrero's drug connection hook-up for years even after he got out of rehab.

- Saito legititmately KOingd Vader for telling him "Vader calls the match, mother****er", and then had the ref count him out while he screamed insults at Vader.

- Eric Bischoff started Nitro as retaliation for a rib played on him by another major promoter.

- No surprise to anyone but Benoit had an undenying love for Dynamite Kid and it sounds like he had self-esteem issues. He had been taking steroids throughout his adolescent years and painkillers to cool himself off but it just made him into a worse person.

(Thanks to Chris Key for emailing us some excerpts and bulletpoints from the book)

The vince/stephanie thing just sounds like a dad napping with his kid, but the bit with shawn makes me throw up a little.

Wrestling rumors always seem to be exaggerated. Come on... I'm supposed to believe that Dean Malenko, someone who seems to be highly respected in the wrestling industry, was partly responsible for Eddie Guerrero's death?

Well, if Chris Benoit was a murderer, then I guess anything is possible, and maybe this book is taking advantage of that. Years ago, when a wrestling writer made a comment about old school Japanese wrestlers scrubbing floors and being hit with kendo sticks... well, that ain't too hard to believe, but now you're tellin me those guys get anally raped? Repeat: anally raped?

Maybe this guy tells these stories in a believable way, maybe he has good sources. I don't know, haven't checked out the book for myself. On the surface, it just seems like craziness.

Malenko's dad is a pharmacist, Eddie was addicted to roids and pain killers. It makes sense.

I can easily believe that HBK used to fuck with people by shitting in their bags and in their food and what not. I can also easily believe that Hall used to urinate on people. That's typical macho bullying shit.

I have a harder time believing the stuff about Lagana offering sexual favors and all that arse raping shit.

Lagana walked up to Thorn in the bathroom, and asked Mordecai and I quote "If he would like to fuck his face" while rubbing his nipples. Thorn told Taker, and Taker got rid of his ass. Lagana also use to fuck the chicks in development...Alledgely

I won't spoil it for you Trev, but this book is well worth the 18 bucks. It is awesome, I have no idea oif this shit is true, but this guy has no reason to lie, he names most of his sources and he has people that was in the company giving you this shit on the record. I think everybody knows I'm a mark for Vince and Trips, but even I can't codone some of the shit they say about them in this book.

Quote:
Vince having a unhealthy relationship with Steph has been touched on way before this book came out, and the book is awesome and has some credible sources. If your in to wrestlers writing books where they paint the picture of being hero's, and are usually 300 pages of them marking for themselves and their buddies, this book isn't for you. If you want a unbias look from a guy who has no agenda, and is basically a outsider to the industry and gives you the whole story than pick the book up.
Post I made at PW.
