Brisco - The Life & Times of National Collegiate and World Heavyweight Champion Jack Brisco Jack Brisco is on the short list in the discussion of the greatest NWA World heavyweight champions ever.

This is the book about Jack's battles both on and off the mat. Author Bill Murdock has spent countless hours with Jack, helping Jack write his amazing story about his travels through amateur and professional wrestling. All the big names in wrestling history parade through the book as Jack tells some of the greatest stories never heard. "One of the very best books on pro wrestling I've ever read," said Mike Chapman, executive director of the International Wrestling Institute and Museum, Iowa. Softbound, 286 pages, lots of photos.

This is the first video that gives fans a behind-the-scenes, backstage look at what happens at a major professional wrestling event. Behind the Scenes at the Bash is an intimate and unvarnished look at the life of a professional wrestler. "Gorgeous" Jimmy Garvin takes you on an all-access tour backstage at the Great American Bash. Featuring original footage shot by Garvin himself, you will see a lot of the biggest stars of the 80s at their most candid. You see the camaraderie that the people that lived this life experienced. The fact that this group of wrestlers spent so much time together travelling an unbelievably grueling schedule did bond them. The DVD captures the intimacy of backstage life. It shows the highs, the jokes, the friendship, etc. while at the same time giving you an idea of how difficult this insane amount of travel was. Available on DVD only.
