“This is a project that has been a long time coming and we have no deadline to complete it so we are going to take our time, do our research and write the best book that we can. The first book will take the reader through my days growing up in rural Oklahoma when I became a wrestling fan, how I backed into the business w/ Watts and McGuirk, navigating the wild and crazy days of the territories as a 20 something year old kid off the farm, the UWF sell out to JCP, WCW days and departure, and culminating with one of the most emotional moments of my career to that point.

“The second book has been laid out and picks up the story in the mid 90′s through my WWE exit in 2014.”

“Not sure how this happens but the WWE Summer Slam card info and lineup of matches including the match times leaked out to the internet over the past several hours. This is a big card with 8 matches plus all the obligatory and often times ‘fill’ of backstage bits that allegedly add ‘entertainment’ content to the event which means that some of the matches on the show won’t get the bell to bell time that some would want to see them have which will prevent the show from being as good as it could be. Nonetheless I’m anxious to watch the event on the WWE Network of which I am renewing.”

“Speaking of Summer Slam, the Ambrose vs. Rollins match which I think should start the PPV is a Lumberjack Match. Why? Does this match really need a stipulation? How about a stip to where the two, talented, hungry, young stars WRESTLE until someone wins? Plus, the ‘leaked info’ says that Miz vs. Ziggler for the IC Title is scheduled to have only 10 minutes to transact their business. That can’t be correct, can it??”
