Is it sport or is it entertainment? As presented by World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc., the most well-known promoter of professional wrestling, it is hard for the uninitiated to tell. A refuge for the very athletic, and often a breeding ground for the highly dysfunctional, professional wrestling is, in the truest sense, life on the fringes. • 15 illustrations

Independent wrestling promotions were once the norm all across the country. However, with the rise of World Wrestling Entertainment and the creation of World Championship Wrestling -- out of three Southern promotions -- the possibility of an independent succeeding grew fainter and fainter. As the nineties began, independents were looking for creative ways to survive. In the East, several banded together to share cost and talent; they were known as Eastern Championship Wrestling. Based out of a warehouse in Philadelphia that stored parade floats and hosted bingo, this promotion seemed doomed to be just one more ninety-day wonder. When they hired a brash New Yorker, Paul Heyman, he warned Eastern Championship Wrestling that the job was just temporary. He would come in, shake up a lot of the wrestlers, and then leave. But what Heyman did redefined professional wrestling in the nineties. What he created was a company that dared to push the boundaries of sports entertainment. What he created became Extreme Championship Wrestling. As the person responsible for booking -- who was going to wrestle and who was going to win -- Heyman dared to break with tradition. Rather than relying on local talent and down-and-out veterans to draw in crowds, he created new characters and story lines that would appeal to the core wrestling fans: eighteen- to twenty-four- year-old men. Paul also realized that to persuade them to come, you had to get their interest and keep it. You had to offer the fans more than just the match. ECW became known for the interview, the shoot. Heyman got to know each wrestler's style, and in their interviews he would encourage them to speak from their hearts. When it came to the matches, ECW broke even farther from the mainstream. Tables, ladders, chairs, barbed wire, and even frying pans were used with abandon. Wrestlers not wanting to be topped put their bodies on the line, taking ever greater risks, daring to jump, leap, and fall from places never tried before. ECW matches became the stuff of legend. Word spread as savvy wrestling fans began talking about the promotion and exchanging tapes. To keep the buzz building, wrestlers used the age-old trick of taunting the fans, and ECW fans responded in kind. By including the fans in the shows, ECW attracted a rabid, cult-like following that is still going strong today. For nearly a decade, ECW redefined professional wrestling with a reckless, brutal, death-defying, and often bloody style that became synonymous with "hardcore." Through extensive interviews with former ECW talent and management -- Paul Heyman, Mick Foley, Tazz, Tommy Dreamer, Rob Van Dam, and many more -- The Rise & Fall of ECW reveals what made this upstart company from Philadelphia great -- and what ultimately led to its demise.

Being a pro wrestler takes talent, guts, and hard work—can Kyle make it to the pros and live the life he wants? Kyle Bailey is a normal high school senior with a secret ambition: to be a wrestling superstar with the WWE. When he hears about a wrestling class at the local gym, he knows this may be his one shot at making his dream come true. The only problem is that no one in his life understands his love of wrestling, so he can’t tell anyone what he’s doing—especially not his grandmother, who has raised him since he was a kid. As Kyle’s talent becomes increasingly apparent, his instructor takes notice and invites him to wrestle in an upcoming professional match. With his newfound success—and his beautiful wrestler girlfriend—Kyle feels like he’s finally exactly where he belongs. But when his grandmother’s health takes a turn for the worse, Kyle is torn between needing to care for her and wanting to follow his dreams. He isn’t ready to give up on being a pro wrestler, but he can’t abandon the woman who has taken care of him his entire life. Headlock is a heartwarming novel about the strength it takes to let go of what you love and the courage it takes to ask for help.

If Abner Musser hadn’t run out of sons, his neighbors say, The Buck would have been as big as Pittsburgh in another 10 years. This area in Southern Lancaster County reminds me more and more of the region just east of Lancaster. I suppose the words that condense this thought could be: Bird-In-Hand gained, Paradise lost. Quote from Robert Risk: “Death does not end all-it begins everything.” If Ma Garner heard a ruckus outside her house at night she raised her bedroom window, shot once, then opened fire with an arsenal of words that may have stung worse than the shotgun pellets. The resourceful human mind has developed to strive for the betterment of mankind, yet the human spirit has evidently never abandoned the cave. At Woodstock there were numerous drug busts, at our gathering all drugs were handed out before the meal.

Selected Poems

"In Selected Poems Dave Etter brings together nearly three decades of carefully crafted poems, including generous selections from the long out-of-print early collections, Go Read the River and Last Train to Prophetstown. With the companion volume Alliance, Illinois (no poems from Alliance are reprinted here), this book constitutes the life's work to date of a poet increasingly recognized as the voice of Mid-America. Etter's poems are colorful, energetic and sensual; his voice rings with the idiom of the Midwest as his poems flash the colors of the Heartland. There is scarcely a poet writing today between the Alleghenies and the Rockies (and many on either coast) who has not been influenced by Etter's jazz rhythms and vigorous colloquial cadences"--Book jacket.
