This book even has a work out section to help sculpt the potential pro wrestlers body so he can look the part.
Norm Kaiser has taken that first step to actually doing something with Indie Wrestling with his eye opening book "Fixing the Indies".
Norm has been around the wrestling business for most of his adult life and has many stories to share about the good, bad and ugly parts of the "small time" wrestling circuit. (I think the duct tape story is filed under bad AND ugly.)
Before John Cena was headlining Pay Per Views, before CM Punk was demanding ice cream bars and before Daniel Bryan got his name mixed up, these guys were learning and perfecting their craft in front of crowds of 50 people in various parts of the country for little pay and even less respect.
Why only 50 people? Norm has the answers.
Why bad pay days? Norm has the answers.
Can 50 people turn into 500 people? Norm has the answers.
Can a promoter go from saying "Sorry, bad house brother." to saying "Great house guys! I put a little extra in your envelope!"? Norm thinks it's possible.
If you want to get involved in Pro Wrestling in any capacity (wrestler, manager, promoter) this book is for you.
If you want the answers to the questions above...don't be a jabroni...buy the book.
I know two independent promoters here in Oklahoma, and I'm planning to give them both copies of this book. They have good promotions, but reading this book and following the suggestions inside can only make them better.
If I were ever fortunate enough to win the Powerball jackpot and start my own wrestling organization, I'm not quite sure whom I would hire as my booker. The booker's boss, though, would definitely be Norm Kaiser. I can't think of anyone who would do a better job of running a wrestling company. If anyone from TNA is reading this, please take my advice; read this book and follow its contents to the letter
