It’s been called the greatest show on earth and the biggest farce in entertainment. Professional wrestling, though hated as equally as it is loved, is inarguably a major player in American culture. The multi-billion dollar industry has transformed from athletic competition to a live theatrical performance and a demonstration of athletic skill. Matt Murphy knows this; he has been a part of the show.The Story of a Nobody, and the Pursuit to Become a Somebody is a unique recollection of Murphy’s troubled youth and the childhood dream he never outgrew—to become a professional wrestler. He became a bright young prospect in the sport, battling grown men and his own personal demons along the way.This book is not intended solely for wrestling fans: anyone can, in some way, relate to his story. It is not only a success story, but the true account of the maturing of a man. Funny, informative, and politically incorrect in every sense of the term, Murphy pulls no punches as he invites readers into the intriguing life he has led.
