Third time's the charm for Jericho books
By LANCE LUMLEY - For SLAM! Wrestling
Writing one book is a challenge, but when the writer has written two bestsellers, the third book may start to lose momentum -- unless your name is Chris Jericho. With “The Best In The World At What I Have No Idea” Jericho proves that he still has plenty to write about.

By NOLAN HOWELL - SLAM Wrestling

New Jack should never have been asked to remember ECW of 1998 for DVD
By BERTRAND HEBERT - SLAM! Wrestling
Kayfabe Commentaries has really one of the most interesting and creative lines of DVDs. With its Timeline series, you get to relive a year in the history of a company with one of the stars commenting on the different stories, angles and matches from that year. On paper, this is great concept, but to deliver you need someone who actually remembers that year and also can bring something to the story from that year and for that company.

Brodus Clay tons of fun in YouShoot
By MATTHEW ASHER - SLAM! Wrestling
It's a total cliché to say "never judge a book by it's cover" but it still is often true. This time, the book is Brodus Clay -- BC Monster during the interview -- as he's the newest participant in Kayfabe Commentaries YouShoot series. And while BC may look like a big, dumb jock, his discussion with Sean Oliver as he answers fan questions proves that he's anything but.

Sting's WWE DVD full of holes
By JOHN POWELL - SLAM! Wrestling
Although the term is thrown around so much it has almost lost its true meaning, Steve Borden is a true living legend in the wrestling industry. Growing up in Canada with limited access to regular WCW broadcasts and live events until the 1990s, I never fully appreciated the popularity of Sting until WCW brought their show to the outdoor CNE Coliseum in 1990. On that card, Sting fought Vader in the main event and it was a memorable event for any fan in attendance with Sting at his best not only in the ring but outside of it, as he whipped the crowd into a frenzy with all of his trademarked moves and his rock star-like persona.

By JOE BASTA and FRANK PACE - For SLAM! Wrestling
What a great way to spend a rainy Saturday night; invite a few friends over, crack a few cold ones and relive our youth by viewing the latest wrestling documentary, Battles, Bouts and Brawls - The History of Wrestling in Detroit. Both of us started watching the great talent and attending the various promotions that have made Detroit one of the greatest wrestling cities on the face of the planet since the late 1950s. All our wrestling memories jam-packed into a 90-minute film. Well, so we thought. Here are our thoughts as we discussed and debated the piece.

Hitman Hart DVD flashes back to WWF of 1992
By CALEB SMITH - SLAM! Wrestling
The latest offering from Kayfabe Commentaries, The History of the WWE – 1992 – As Told By Bret Hart, is an interesting tale that provides nuggets of information that the casual fan would find very interesting. Host Sean Oliver leads Bret Hart through one of his most important years in professional wrestling which saw “The Hitman” win not only the Intercontinental title, but the biggest prize of them all, the World championship.

Papercutz’s WWE SLAM City comic perfect for kids
By MATTHEW BYER - SLAM! Wrestling
At the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, Papercutz and WWE announced a partnership to produce a line of comic books based on various wrestlers, legends, and personalities. While the WWE Superstars series garnered much of the attention due to the fact that WWE Legend Mick Foley would be co-writing it, Papercutz also launched the WWE Slam City series based on the animated shorts of the same name that have been airing since March of this year on the WWE Network and YouTube.
