As much as I like Foley's 1st 2 books, he 3rd one sucked (Hardcore Diaries). I liked Jericho's book the best.
I'm reading it for the 3rd time now.
ain't seen foley's 3rd
the opening bit in the first, where he watches the german nurse throw his ear in the trash & then asks him,
"that wrestling --- is all fake, no?" jeezus!
flair's book is pretty good (dvd anthology is astounding), heard piper's was not-so... i have dibiase's, but lotsa born-again stuff in it...
to flip (and to paraphrase yourself), these are compelling flicks in their own right --- well-made, compassionate & highly engaging... i've shown "beyond the mat" to people who thought they couldn't have cared less & they LOVED it... as far as fans' "idiocy," it's entertainment, which requires no more or less suspension of disbelief than yer average spy novel, superhero movie, etc... most people are in on the joke, and the ones that aren't (i've seen my share), well... more entertainment for me...
