Review

"Awesome.  Great interviews with all the key players from different eras. It's like every time I get near the book it drags me into opening it and the next thing I know it's an hour later." —www.f4wOnline.com


"Mad Dogs, Midgets, and Screw Jobs is an informative and entertaining read for any professional wrestling buff. Laprade and Hébert's well-researched text shows the evolution of the world of wrestling in the city of Montreal, which has been the focal point of Canadian pro wrestling history." —www.slam.canoe.ca

I've read 99% of all pro wrestling books written and this one is near the top of the food chain. It is incredibly researched and offered a tremendous history into wrestling in Montreal. Even though I'd followed wrestling history, I had no idea of Andre The Giant's strong roots in the territory and the importance of Dino Bravo to the territory. If I have any quibble with the book, and it's minor, one is made to feel that Jean Pierre Lafitte was an important figure in the WWF in the mid 90's, when he was mostly used as a midcarder. That is nothing against the guy as I remember viewing an incredible opening match he had with Bob Holly in a nearly empty madison square garden in the mid 90's.

How about a biography focused on the Rougeaus as a follow up?

Pat and Bert's book is an amazing walk back to the lost era of professional wrestling in Montreal. As an old-school wrestling fan this is one of those books that is hard to put down once you start reading it. It's full of great stories, breathtaking photos and immediately takes you back to the 1970s and 80s in Montreal. Back to a time when professional wrestling was still "real" and not sports entertainment! I give this book my highest recommendation and am confident you won't be disappointed.

An interesting look at the Montreal wrestling territory. I liked the book although I wish it was organized more in a timeline type of format. A great book if you are a wrestling fan and love information about wrestling. A good book if you are a fan that thinks wrestling started with the WWE.
