They were World Heavyweight Champions: Bob Backlund, Superstar Billy Graham, and Bruno Sammartino. They were fan favorites: "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka, Chief Jay Strongbow, and Andre the Giant. They were the villains everyone loved to hate: Killer Kowalski, Ernie Ladd, and the Fabulous Moolah. They were ethnic heroes, someone just like you that you could cheer for: Ivan Putski, Pedro Morales, Peter Maivia. They were the stars that shined the brightest, and left an indelible mark on the memories of countless fans.

In a time when professional wrestling was divided into territories, no place created bigger Superstars than World Wrestling Entertainment. From the company's centerpiece in Madison Square Garden, legends were born.

WWE Legends is the every fan's guide to the legends of the ring. They are all in here, from Andre the Giant to George "the Animal" Steele, with quick stats and descriptions of their most famous matches. No true wrestling fan should be without this book.

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - red_dianthus - LibraryThing

Much better than I expected, this book does have a strong WWE bias but does cover outside promotions and some history of the industry before the Hogan era. It has bios on past stars that include some non-kayfabe details. Read full review
