Summary

Over the years, the wrestling world has lost its share of legends, from Randy 'Macho Man' Savage to Andre The Giant. With humorous poignancy, A Battle Royal in the Sky celebrates the stars' lives, and looks back with fondness on the sport's many unforgettable gimmicks - the good, the bad, and the painfully ugly - that are also sadly missed.

A Battle Royal in The Sky Summary

A Battle Royal in The Sky: The Life and Death of Wrestling's 100 Greatest Gods and Gimmicks by Rich Tarantino

Every wrestling fan of the 80s and 90s remembers larger-than-life superstars in unintentionally cheesy promos - it was a golden era of grappling where two companies battled and no matter what the outcome, the audience always won. Nowadays, wrestling just isn't the same. Many of our former heroes, whether it's Randy 'Macho Man' Savage or Curt 'Mr Perfect' Hennig, have passed away too young, and many of our favourite gimmicks and story angles - many of which had no right to live on - have been permanently retired. With humorous poignancy, A Battle Royal in the Sky celebrates both 50 legends we lost, and 50 good, bad, and very ugly gimmicks we've had to say goodbye to. Told from a true fan's perspective, the book features superstar career highlights and lowlights, and a wealth of irresistible trivia from worst celebrity WrestleMania appearances to the top rated wrestling managers who were pets.
