It's no secret, I love books written about professional wrestling. There's something about the behind the scenes stuff that I find entertaining and ridiculous - especially stuff from the territories in the 70's and 80's - what better than Canada's premier wrestling organization for almost 30 years!? The stories that Heath McCoy brings to the book about traveling across Western Canada are amazing. ( )

To Grampa, because I’ve always loved watching wrestling with you; Gramma for not making us change the channel; and to Mom and Dad, who were the best parents a kid could have (despite your lousy rules).
To my late brother, Jay (the only one of us kids brave enough to ask for Bad News Allen’s autograph). I miss the hell out of you and I think about you every day.
And to my wife, Tamara. No one knows how much personal pain and passion went intothis book like you do. Thanks for getting me through it. I love you.
