Publisher's Weekly Not Too Impressed with Matthew Randazzo's book on Wrestler Chris Benoit

Publisher's Weekly recently reviewed Matthew Randazzo V's new book, Ring of Hell: The Story of Chris Benoit and the Fall of the Pro Wrestling Industry, and were not very impressed...at least with the true crime portion of the story.

PW basically summarized the Benoit story, then concluded its review with "Randazzo’s broad biographical strokes (he saves details for pivotal matches) and wide focus on the industry’s evolution make Benoit little more than a minor character in his own story. Wrestling fans will savor the industry gossip, but those interested in the how and why of Benoit’s tragic murder-suicide will be disappointed."

Be sure to check out an article posted by Randazzo at one of my other blogs, In Cold Blog, here.
