The newest release from Crowbar Press is “Wrestling with the Truth” by Bruno Lauer.
Bruno, who worked under the names Downtown Bruno and Harvey Wippleman, spent several years writing his bio, and turned it over to Scott Teal and Crowbar Press for editing and publishing.
You can find full details on the book, including a synopsis, subject matter, chapter titles, and even lengthy excerpts from the book. The excerpts on the page listed below are worth taking the time to check it out.
Wrestling with the Truth opens with a Foreword by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and comments by Kurt Angle, Mick Foley, Chris Jericho, Batista, and John Cena, all of whom read the book and raved about it.
We guarantee you’ll enjoy the read. Bruno has a great sense of humor that permeates the book, as well as a unique perspective of life behind the scenes of the USWA (Memphis), CWA (Alabama), and the WWF-WWE.
Mick Foley, who read the first draft of the book, found himself on the receiving end of a few barbs thrown by Bruno. “Bruno’s honesty can be, at times, a little painful. A unique perspective from one of the most unique characters in the history of the wrestling business.”
Bruno’s book is phenomenal and I highly recommend it to everybody. You will learn a lot about the business of professional wrestling, and in the process, you will laugh your ass off.

Entertaining, visual, and vicious. A memorable memoir by a veteran performer who has seen and done it all in sports entertainment.
