    Shooters ePUB º Paperback shooters download, Shooters MOBIThis book is uite clearly recommended for fans of professional wrestling sport wrestling and mixed martial arts I would also recommend this book for general sports fans who are either unaware or ignorant of the fact that pro wrestlers were once the most legitimately dangerous men on the planet This is no hyperbole Pro wrestling used to be a legitimate sport of dangerous men and when it made the slow transition from sport to athletic entertainment during the late 1910s early 1920s the pro wrestlers had to be even skilled due to challenges from outsiders such as Olympic or NCAA wrestlers or martial artists who uestioned the sport's credibility a

    Shooters ePUB º Paperback shooters download, Shooters MOBIWhat is a shooterBy definition a “shoot” in professional wrestling is any unplanned unscripted or real life occurrence within a wrestling event Basically it’s when professional wrestling stops being fake and things start getting real The shooters were men who were so tough that they could back up their scripted wrestling matches by beating the tar out of anyone who didn’t want to play alongThat’s what Jonathan Snowden’s book Shooters The Toughest Men in Professional Wrestling is all aboutThis book isn’t simply a history of how wrestling evolved from the old days of traveling carnival barkers to modern theatrics like last night’s Wrestlemania event it’s a well documented timeline of some of the biggest badasses of the last 150 years From the glory days of Wi
