9781550225310: The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame: The Canadians

Bret Hart, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Chris Benoit did you know they were Canadians? The dark secret of professional wrestling? Canada. By population, no other country on Earth has sent as many top performers to the upper echelon of the squared circle. But to this day, the Canadian origins of these superstars have been hidden or played down by promoters. Now, everything’s about to change. Here, for the first time in print, respected wrestling author Greg Oliver blows the lid off the secrets: Rowdy Roddy Piper was never from Scotland, he’s from Saskatche-wan; Mad Dog Vachon, billed from Algeria, was from Quebec; Abdullah the Butcher learned to use a fork in Windsor, Ontario; Val Venis isn’t a porn star from Las Vegas but a wannabe helicopter pilot from southern Ontario. The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame details all of the top stars to come out of Canada. From the golden era of wrestling’s itinerant early days, to Pay-Per-View billionaires and Wrestlemania x8, top names like Chris Jericho, Whipper Watson, Chris Benoit, Gene Kiniski, Rick Martel, Killer Kowalski, Edge and Christian, Chris and John Tolos, Yvon Robert, and Sky Low Low are profiled. Plus a special section features the famous fighting families like the Harts, Cormiers, and Rougeaus. Full of photos and fascinating stories and facts, The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame is a must for any wrestling fan whether they hide their country of origin or not!
