The official publication date for The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame: The Storytellers (From the Terrible Turk to Twitter) was August 6, and on August 12, the first review (that we have found) was posted. Read what Lance Lumley liked and didn't like at his blog. (Of note, Lance has written for SLAM! Wrestling, the website that I run, in the past in an unpaid capacity.)
Tying together the stars of professional wrestling, country music and the New York Mets is one man: John Arezzi. In his memoir, out in the spring of 2021, from ECW Press, Arezzi will bring the reader along on his wild ride, from a pioneering wrestling radio show to baseball's minor leagues to working with Patty Loveless, Kelsea Ballerini and Taylor Swift. To complete his life story, Arezzi is teaming with accomplished wrestling journalist Greg Oliver, author or co-author of 15 previous books, including the acclaimed Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame series. Oliver has also run the respected SLAM! Wrestling website for more than 20 years. CLICK HERE for the rest of the press release.

Steve Johnson and I have been doing the media rounds to promtoe The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame: The Storytellers (From the Terrible Turk to Twitter). I was on Mike Richards' morning show on Sauga960AM, and then Steve and I were both on Rasslin Memories Then and Now on Pioneer 90.1. And Jon Langmead did a lengthy piece on both of us for PopMatters.com: The Pro-Wrestling Story Collectors: An Interview with Sports Authors Steve Johnson and Greg Oliver.
