REVIEW: 4th Edition of WWE Encyclopedia

Posted on 10/27/120 by Alan Wojcik

Since 2009, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has created
the ultimate guide for professional wrestling, sorry Sports
Entertainment fans to have in their homes. The WWE
ENCYCLOPEDIA has now reached its fourth edition in 2020
which was released in September.

This year's edition clocks in at 416 pages (the original is
363 pages) and goes from the 24/7 championship to Zeus (the
No Holds Barred character played by Tom "Tiny" Lister.) In
between are the legends of your grandparent's generation
like Lou Thesz, Mae Young and Eddie Graham, to your parents'
generation of Bruno Sammartino, Harley Race, Wahoo McDaniel
and Jack Brisco and mine which featured Hulk Hogan, Ric
Flair, Sting, "Macho Man" Randy Savage and others. Today's
generation of superstars are also here like John Cena, Seth
Rollins, Sasha Banks, Bayley and Becky Lynch.

I am not going to spoil who is here and who is not, but I am
surprised how many former stars who now work for All Elite
Wrestling are here like Jon "Dean Ambrose" Moxley, Chris
Jericho, Cody Rhodes and his wife Brandi AKA Eden Stiles.
This is a beautiful layout of a publication with glossy
photos and for the major stars like Undertaker multiple
pages are needed to tell their story. The total profiles is
over 1,100 with 250 brand new or updated listings.

Tons of credit goes to the authors Kevin Sullivan, Keith
Elliot Greenberg, Jake Black, Dean Miller and Steve Pantaleo
for what must have been an exhaustive process. This book is
on sale now in retail stores in person and online. Thanks to
Kristen Fisher of DK publishing for allowing me to review
this book.
