For example, Ultimo Dragon won the WCW Cruiserweight title twice and the WCW Television title twice. That information is not featured so of course it's sort of annoying to see such a classic wrestler get disrespected because they couldn't afford to put 2 sentences of info on a page.
I hope for the next version, They don't half-ass it and leave out information. That's sort of annoying. Still, The book is still good overall and well worth buying because you do learn a lot from it. It's just frustratingly incomplete.
It is touted as “The Definitive Guide To WWE” and I’ve got a hard time arguing with that statement. The first thing I looked for when opening the book told me just how inclusive this was… It includes Chris Benoit. And while it doesn’t go into details on his death (nor would I expect it to) it gives him a half page spread and talks about his accomplishments. As far as I know, this is by far the most the WWE has referenced Benoit either on air on in print since his death.
That huge positive aside, there’s still clearly politics at play here. If you look at the cover (front, back and inside jacket) you’ll notice a glaring absence: Hulk Hogan. I can’t say I blame WWE though. At the time of publication, Hogan was the acting general manager of TNA. Luckily, the hard feelings didn’t extend into the book and WWE gave the Hulkster the treatment he deserves with a full two page spread.
Hindsight being what it is, inclusion of CM Punk front and center on the cover and Superfly Jimmy Snuka flying over the entire historical roster weren’t the best choices, but they were working with that they knew at the time.
Hall of Famers are recognized with a seal on their entry that tells which year they were inducted which is a nice touch.Read more ›
