  • Short Description
An insider’s look at those most respected by their peers as masters of pro wrestling, in the words of the wrestlers themselves.

A walk-through wrestling history, starting with the founding fathers such as Ed “Strangler” Lewis and the incomparable Lou Thesz, to modern-day masters such as Daniel Bryan and Kurt Angle.

The Wrestlers’ Wrestlers spotlights elite performers and analyzes exactly what made them your favorite wrestler’s favorite wrestlers. Authors Dan Murphy and Brian Young interviewed more than 40 in-ring veterans, historians, referees, and promoters to get a unique insider’s look at the people who have made a lasting impact on the world of professional wrestling. It offers a special peek “behind the curtain” and a rare look into the top stars’ thoughts on their peers, their influences, and their personal favorites.

The Wrestlers’ Wrestlers is a history of professional wrestling but also a tribute to the frequently misunderstood art itself. Featuring stars of the 1920s to today, this essential read deserves a prominent spot on the bookcase of every fan and historian.

“For more than 20 years, Dan Murphy was my go-to guy when the editors came up with the outline of a good topic but needed someone with the depth of thought to flesh it out. With this amazing book, Dan once again proves to me that he is a writer’s writer.” — Stu Saks, publisher of Pro Wrestling Illustrated

“An interesting look at some wrestlers who may at times be overlooked, but within the wrestling industry everyone talks about them with great respect.” — Dave Meltzer, Publisher and Editor of The Wrestling Observer

“What a great book! It's a veritable who's who of professional wrestlers accompanied by painstakingly detailed context. As someone who personally knew many of the people profiled within, I can't recommend it enough.” — Jake Shannon, Author, Scientific Wrestling founder, and Catch Wrestling Coach

The Wrestlers’ Wrestlers: The Masters of the Craft of Professional Wrestling is a great curated list of the workhorses and stars of the business … It can be a great guide for new fans to get into pro wrestling even more, and for hardcore fans, it can be a reminder of why these wrestlers are great.” — Voices of Wrestling

“I'm glad the authors decided to tackle this topic, as they produced a solid read that made me think, question, and debate their choices. I can't ask for much more than that from a book. With this in mind, I wholeheartedly recommend buying The Wrestlers' Wrestlers: The Masters of the Craft of Professional Wrestling by Dan Murphy and Brian Young. It's unique, smart, and well written.” — Michael Cavacini blog
