WRESTLING BABYLON: Piledriving Tales of Drugs, Sex, Death, and Scandal is â€œa powerful collection â€¦ that cut[s] right to the heart of the matter in one scandalous subject after another,â€ reviewer Derek Burgan writes on the website of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Burgan adds that Irvin Muchnickâ€™s new book about pro wrestling is marked by a unique style â€œthat will appeal to both the hardcore wrestling fan and to people who donâ€™t even like wrestling but appreciate a well written piece.â€
