Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: In a revealing look at the decline of the world's most popular sports entertainment franchise, Scott Keith uncovers a growing trend of favouritism and stagnation within the WWE that gives an elite group of stars a free ride - for as long as they want - with no worries of being retired. Essentially, the old guys with the most chops get a soft cruise into belated retirement at the expense of eager young bucks desperate to prove their talent in the ring but written out of the theatre of the square circle by the faux-nepotism of the Old Boy's club. While the one-time legends of the ring grow fat and slow in increasingly boring storylines and staid fight routines, the new blood with the best moves is continually sidelined. Because in the WWE, getting to the top takes more than moves. In order to have it made, you gotta be made. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: In the do-whatever-it-takes world of the WWE, there has always been a system that guarantees happy audiences and successful careers—there’s the good guys, and there’s the bad guys. Over time, wrestlers may fade away, but this theme remains the same, with grudges, long-standing feuds, and an ever-changing roster of colorful characters driving the action. Until now.
In this revealing look at the decline of the world’s most popular sports entertainment franchise, Scott Keith uncovers a growing trend of favoritism and stagnation within the WWE that gives an elite group of stars a free ride—for as long as they want—with no worries of being retired. Ultimately the fans are the big losers because waiting in the wings is a group of talented young wrestlers eager to prove themselves in the ring. But getting to the top in the WWE takes more than good moves, because if you want to have it made—you have to be made.
Includes black and white photos throughout, plus a 16-page color photo insert.
