In 1997, World Championship Wrestling was on top. It was the number-one pro wrestling company in the world, and the highest-rated show on cable television. Each week, fans tuned in to Monday Nitro, flocked to sold-out arenas, and carried home truckloads of WCW merchandise. It seemed the company could do no wrong.But by 2001, however, everything had bottomed out. The company - having lost a whopping 95% of its audience - was sold for next to nothing to Vince McMahon and World Wrestling Entertainment. WCW was laid to rest.What went wrong? This expanded and updated version of the bestselling Death of WCW takes readers through a detailed dissection of WCW's downfall, including even more commentary from the men who were there and serves as an object lesson - and dire warning - as WWE and TNA hurtle toward the 15th anniversary of WCW's demise

I tried to like this, I really did. This reads like a reference book, sprinkled with humor. The problem is that the volume is way too long and tediously detailed. Each paragraph is a variation on "the sky is falling, just not yet...". I was able to make it through two-thirds of this book before quitting. Many hours of reading and feeling like I got nowhere. This could be enjoyable for true wrestling fans, which I admit I am, as I grew up in the 80s watching WWF and AWA wrestling with my dad and my older brother. Just not enough variation and true analysis to keep me interested.

I found this book hard to read because it was poorly organized. Each chapter was just one long list of incidents.
