A rare glimpse not only into the life of a professional wrestler, but the life of a gay man in a straight world, this tragic memoir is told in Chris Kanyon’s own words, with the help of journalist Ryan Clark. One of the most popular wrestlers of the late 1990s, Kanyon kept his personal life private from his fans until finally revealing his biggest secret in 2004: he was gay. Going through the various roles that Kanyon played, both in the ring and out of it, as well as his battle with manic depression, this book explores the factors that led to his suicide in 2010. In his voice and the way he wanted it told, these are Kanyon’s last words about his experience rising through the ranks to the top of the professional wrestling world while keeping his sexuality hidden.

Chris Kanyon (1970-2010), born Christopher Klucsarits, was an American professional wrestler best known for his work in World Championship Wrestling and the World Wrestling Federation. Ryan Clark is an editor, an instructor at Northern Kentucky University, and a writer for the "Cincinnati Enquirer." He lives in Burlington, Kentucky.
