Shooters: The Toughest Men in Professional Wrestling
Shooters tells the stories of athletes like Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley, men who have lived their lives on the border between 'works' and 'shoots', between the routines of the professional wrestling circuit and the legitimate confrontations that made their reputations. From catch wrestling masters Ad Santel and Billy Robinson to pro-wrestling icons like Strangler Lewis and Lou Thesz, from Olympic heroes Danny Hodge and Kurt Angle, Shooters takes readers from the shadowy carnival tent and the dingy training hall to the bright lights of the squared circle.
