New E-Book: KB’s Complete Monday Nitro/Thunder Reviews Part V with Special Price

nitro-v

A comprehensive look back at every episode of WCW Monday Nitro and Thunder from January – June 1999. WCW is in trouble and there’s not much of a better way to put it. They’re being defeated by Monday Night Raw in the Monday Night Wars, but as any wrestling historian can tell you, that doesn’t mean there’s no hope. Monday Night Raw was crushed for the better part of two years so maybe WCW can come back as well. In this book, every episode of both shows in the first half of 1999 is reviewed in full, complete with analysis, ratings and complete content included.

Normally this will be selling for $3.99 but for the next ten days (as in thru Sunday November 27) it’s going to be at a sale price of $2.99. Pick it up cheap while you can!

New E-Book: History of the Intercontinental Title

Think of a great wrestler over the last forty years and odds are they’ve been the Intercontinental Champion. Since 1979, the Title has brought us a long list of great matches, stories and champions, many of whom have risen to the top of the wrestling world on the strength of their time as Intercontinental Champion. It’s been called the workrate title and is often associated with the best wrestling that you can find anywhere in the world. Whether it’s a mat classic or a bloody fight, more great matches have been fought over the Intercontinental Title than almost any championship in the history of wrestling. Any way you look at it, there’s a reason why this title is thought of so highly among wrestling fans.

In this new book, I’ll be taking a look over 400 Intercontinental Title matches from pay per views, television and house shows with every title change (at least all of them filmed) included, along with a long list of successful title defenses. I’ll be including play by play and analysis of each match and taking a look at how much the title has changed as well as stayed the same over the years.

The books is my longest ever at over 500 pages on a Kindle and only costs $3.99, or the equivalent in other currencies. If you don’t have a Kindle or e-book reader, there are several FREE apps you can use to read it on pretty much any electronic device. You can find those from Amazon here.

New E-Book: KB’s Complete Monday Nitro Reviews Volume IV

We continue through the history of one of the biggest wrestling companies of all time with the second half of Monday Nitro and Thunder from 1998. It’s a bad time for WCW as the Monday Night Wars are starting to swing in the other direction. Monday Night Raw started winning again in April 1998 and WCW has been scrambling for a way to get back on top. However, their strategy seems to be a combination of quick fixes and going back to ideas that worked before. These methods don’t have the most successful track records in wrestling history but maybe they’ll work here.

In this book, I’ll be looking at every Monday Nitro and Thunder from July 1998 through December 1998, breaking down each show match by match and segment by segment. This is a very important time in WCW’s history and it should be interesting looking back and seeing what was working, what wasn’t working, but most importantly why it wasn’t working. As usual I’ll be providing play by play, context and analysis of every show.

New E-Book: KB’s History of Wrestlemania

You might have heard about this show before. The show has evolved from a bigger than average house show in Madison Square Garden to a show that takes over a different major city each year as part of a week long event. It has been called the Granddaddy of Them All and the Showcase of the Immortals and lives up to its reputation as the biggest and most important event of the year. In this book I’ll be looking at every edition of the series and breaking down each show segment by segment and match by match. I’ll be including detailed analysis, history and ratings for each match and show overall.

In this book, I’ll be looking at every Wrestlemania to date, starting back with the glorified house show in 1985 and winding up in Santa Clara, California in 2015. Wrestlemania is a show with more prestige and grandeur than any other in wrestling history and now it’s all collected here. These are ALL NEW REVIEWS and the last time I’ll be doing them for a very long time. As usual I’ll be providing play by play, context and analysis of every show.

New E-Book: KB’s Complete 1997 Monday Night Raw Reviews

As 1996 came to a close, it was clear that WCW was in command of the Monday Night Wars. While Monday Nitro was running away with the battles, Monday Night Raw was the same show that we had been seeing for years. It was clear that something needed to change but it wasn’t clear what. The solution would wind up being everything over the course of the year.

In this book, I’ll be looking at every episode of Monday Night Raw in 1997. This was the year where things started to change. From Bret Hart turning his back on the fans to Rocky Maivia becoming the Rock to the Undertaker having a brother and dead parents to Steve Austin showing he had staying power to Mankind having three personalities, 1997 saw Monday Night Raw go from its roots to a modern show in a hurry. As usual I’ll be providing play by play, context and analysis of every show.

New E-Book: NXT – The Full Sail Years Volume I

NXT

In today’s wrestling world, it’s very common to see the exact same formula over and over with very few changes. A lot of fans are looking for something fresh and it’s hard to find that anywhere. However, one place that you can find it is outside the top level. Down in Florida in the WWE developmental promotion, there is good, old fashioned, week to week wrestling and it’s some of the best stuff going today. I’m sure you’re familiar with names like Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Sami Zayn, Neville and Charlotte, but how did they get their starts down there?

In this book, I’ll be looking at every the first year and a half of NXT, starting with their arrival in Florida at Full Sail University and wrapping it up just before they head over to the WWE Network. NXT started fast and quickly became one of the best wrestling shows around and it will be interesting to see how they got to where they are now. As usual I’ll be providing play by play, context and analysis of every show.

New E-Book: Complete Monday Nitro (and Thunder) Reviews Volume III

When we last left WCW, they were the
undisputed kings of the Monday Night Wars and that’s certainly still the
case as they come into 1998. Things were so good that they decided to
more than double the amount of television they were airing per week. To
say this might have been too much too soon is an understatement but WCW
had done stupider stuff before.
In this book, I’ll be looking at every episode of
Monday Nitro and Thunder from January through June of 1998. This is the
time where the Monday Night Wars finally started to get competitive
again after nearly two years of being completely one sided. Having two
shows a week was a fresh idea as well, making this a very important time
in wrestling history. As usual I’ll be providing play by play,
historical context and analysis of every show.
Also remember that I’ve already covered 1995-1997
Monday Nitro in case you don’t want to jump right into the later stuff.
Both books are available from my Amazon author page.

New E-Book: Only On Pay Per View: 1998

The Monday Night Wars is one of the most discussed periods in the
history of professional wrestling. Over the years, the WWF and WCW did
battle every Monday night for supremacy in professional wrestling. Books
have been written about it and WWE produced a long documentary series
on the subject. However, there’s another aspect of the battle that
doesn’t get nearly as much attention.

While the more publicized war was taking place on Monday night, there
was another war being waged once a month on Sunday night. Every month,
both companies produced a three hour pay per view special where the
really big matches and blowoffs to the stories took place. These were
just as important as the TV shows and had more than their share of great
matches and moments.

In this book, I’ll be looking at all twenty four pay per views from
1998, one of the most pivotal years of the Monday Night Wars. I’ll be
breaking down every match, segment and show as a whole. As usual I’ll
be providing play by play, historical context and analysis of every
show. The reviews are all new and never before seen.

The books runs over 340 pages on a Kindle and only costs $3.99, or the

New E-Book: History of Saturday Night’s Main Event

One of the most common complaints wrestling fans have today is how
much content there is to watch.  WWE alone has at least seven hours of
wrestling TV a week.  For over twenty years, we’ve gotten used to
wrestling airing every Monday night with some of the biggest stars in
the sport squaring off.  However, things weren’t always the same.  Back
in the 1980’s, wrestling television was based around the idea of squash
matches.  Most shows featured a big name against an unknown and matches
against other stars were almost unheard of.

Things began to change in 1985.  Powered by the strength of
Wrestlemania and Hulkamania, the WWF was able to air a series of
specials on NBC, featuring matches between big name stars and even title
matches, all for free.  The shows were major successes and helped push
the company into their golden era, sending professional wrestling to
heights no one had ever seen possible.

In this book, I’ll be looking at all thirty six episodes of the
series, as well as the five Main Event specials, breaking down every
match, segment and show as a whole.  As usual I’ll be providing play by
play, historical context and analysis of every show.

The books runs over 300 pages on a Kindle and only costs $3.99, or

New E-Book: History of the Royal Rumble

Back in late 1987, the WWF started messing with the NWA’s pay per view
schedule by airing Survivor Series 1987 on the same night as Starrcade
1987. This worked so well that they decided to do it again in January
1988 but as a free special on the USA network. Nearly thirty years
later, the show has become one of the biggest events of the year and
contains one of the most important matches on the Road to Wrestlemania:
the Royal Rumble.

For twenty seven years, the Royal
Rumble has given us the biggest battle royal of the year and some of the
best matches of all time. Ranging from Chris Jericho vs. Chris Benoit
in a ladder match to Triple H vs. Cactus Jack in a street fight to Chris
Benoit vs. Kurt Angle in a technical masterpiece, you’re almost
guaranteed to get a solid title match in addition to the Royal Rumble
itself.

In this book, we’ll look at every edition of the Royal
Rumble starting in 1988 and break down every show, segment and match as
WWE starts their Road to Wrestlemania. The book contains twenty seven
pay per view reviews and looks at everything that has taken place at the
first major show of the year on the WWE calendar. As usual I’ll be
providing play by play, historical context and analysis of every show.

The
books runs about 350 pages on a Kindle and only costs $3.99, or the

New E-Book: KB’s History of Monday Nitro Volume II

We’re going back
to the 90s again for a look at the second full year of Monday Nitro.
The previous year closed out with WCW on a hot streak but things
would pick up even more in the coming year. WCW would go on a run
that had the WWF and Monday Night Raw not only on the ropes but on
the brink of death.

Over the course of the year, Nitro was must see TV with action,
drama, violence and the NWO running roughshod all over WCW. The
stories were as compelling as ever and made you want to come back the
next week to see what was going to happen. In addition to the top
story, 1997 also saw the rise of the future with stars such as Rey
Mysterio Jr., Chris Jericho, Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko and Goldberg
becoming some of the most interesting parts of the show.

In this book, we’ll look at every episode of Monday Nitro from
1997 and see why they were so unstoppable all year. Each show is
broken down segment by segment and match by match with historical
context, ratings and analysis of what worked or didn’t work about
each segment and how the shows added up to being so successful for
WCW.

The books runs over 400 pages on a Kindle and only costs $3.99, or
the equivalent in other currencies. If you don’t have a Kindle or

New E-Book: KB’s History of ECW Pay Per Views

We’re going back to the 90s this time as we take a look at the twenty one original ECW pay per views. The company was the kind of independent wrestling at the time and reaching a national audience was the next step. The solution was to get on pay per view, and that’s exactly what ECW did.

Over the nearly four years that ECW was on pay per view, they went on a long ride, ranging from good to bad and then back up again. You can see the Monday Night Wars and talent raids take their toll, as a huge cast of characters comes and goes through ECW’s doors. This series sees everything from barbed wire, flaming tables, chairs, some absolutely amazing cruiserweight style matches and a host of names that would fill up the WWE and TNA rosters for years to come.

In this new e-book, I’ll be looking back at all twenty one ECW pay per views and breaking each one down match by match and segment by segment, providing historical context, analysis and rating each match and show. These are ALL new reviews, done over the last two months and not released before.

The book runs over 280 pages on Kindle. If you don’t have a Kindle or e-book reader, there are several FREE apps you can use to read it on pretty much any electronic device.

New E-Book: KB’s History of Survivor Series

This time we’re starting back in 1987 when there was only one WWF pay
per view a year.  With Wrestlemania III being a huge success, it was
decided that another pay per view should be added to help bridge the gap
between Wrestlemanias.  The fact that it was able to cause major damage
to the NWA was just a bonus.

There has been a long list of great Survivor Series matches over the
years, including the tag team Survivor Series matches, Bret Hart vs.
Shawn Michaels in 1992 and Steve Austin vs. Bret Hart. There’s also a
big list of people making their debut with the company at the show.
Names like the Undertaker, Kurt Angle and The Rock all stepped into the
ring for the first time at Survivor Series. On top of all that Survivor
Series had the most infamous moment in wrestling history that changed a
lot of things forever.

In this new book, I’ll be looking at the history of the Survivor
Series, breaking down each show and going over every match, promo and
segment, providing historical context, analysis and rating each match
and show.

The book is available from Amazon for just $3.99 (or the equivalent
in any other currency) and runs 391 pages on a Kindle. If you don’t have

New E-Book: KB’s History Of Clash Of The Champions

We’re going back to the 80s again with the original WCW prime time
special. Starting in March of 1988, the NWA launched the Clash of the
Champions to mess with Wrestlemania IV. The idea worked so they decided
to keep things going and made more editions of the show. Over the
course of nearly ten years, thirty five Clash of the Champions specials
were produced with some of the best matches WCW ever had included.

In this new book, I go back and look at every single show, breaking each
one down match by match and segment by segment with detailed analysis
and a look through the history of the series.

The book is available from Amazon for just $3.99 and runs 354 pages on a
