Welcome to OWW Radio! Each week hosts David and Alex will provide perspective to the WWE, TNA, and everything else making news in the world of professional wrestling. A new episode will be posted each week. This week David is joined by Larry Matysik, the author of the new book, “The 50 Greatest Professional Wrestlers of All Time: The Definitive Shoot”. During the interview we discuss the history of professional wrestling, how the business has changed, and how he was able to come up with his top 50. And, yes, John Cena is on his list!
Editor’s note: I really enjoyed this book because Larry Matysik does his very best to present a fair, educated, and thorough look at the greats of professional wrestling. I appreciate his effort because the WWE list of top 50 is obviously flawed (Hulk Hogan at #23? Please.) I don’t necessarily agree with every entry in Mr. Matysik’s list, but that’s the fun of pro wrestling, we all have opinions. I recommend you buy the book and see how your list matches up with the one presented here.
