In regards to Eric Bischoff's book, definitely worth the read. He comes off to me as a very intelligent guy who takes a lot of undeserved flack.
In regards to Bret Hart's book, I liked it, but it left a sour taste in my mouth. Most bios you read will have some one look back on their life critically and admit their mistakes/poor judgments, but Bret doesn't.
Despite his extra marital affairs, he doesn't seem to regret them at all, citing how his wife made him miserable all the time. Sorry Bret, then divorce her if you'd rather sleep around then try and fix your marriage. Great example for young men everywhere.
In Hulk Hogan's latest book, he offers what seems to me a very fair and honest look back at his life (ignore his first WWE-backed bio, it's pretty bad).
he states he did everything he could to try and make his marriage work not only because of his wedding vows but for his children's sake. That's being a man and role model. Being proud of all the ladies you slept with like Bret doesn't make you a man. Big difference.
I guess wrestling has passed me by, and I don't really feel the loss. Thoughts?

but I couldn't help but think that it would be a lot more interesting if it wasn't sanitized by the WWE.
I'm one of the people who doesn't watch the current product, but purchases retrospective DVDs on the "old guys", like Hogan.

Another good one was the Saturday Night's Main Event set from a year or so ago.
I wonder if they'd ever release "season" sets of the show.
I understand why it's done, however sometimes it takes away a little bit from what I'm expecting.

I started to watch the Hogan/Backlund match last night but fell asleep (not because it was dull, it was after midnight. I guess I'm getting old).
I was fortunate enough to catch the Hulkster in action three times back in the 80s, once against Jake Roberts, which was pretty cool at the time as they didn't really have any feud going on. Jake gave Hogan the DDT and left him lying there and started walking around jabbering with the crowd. Everyone was screaming "Pin him!" but of course when he finally went to pin him, that's when Hogan started waving his finger around and made the Superman comeback. Which I didn't have a problem with, I was a Hulkamaniac.

You met Bret Hart? That's pretty awesome. Did you get an autographed book? Inquiring minds want to know.
