At its core, professional wrestling has always been about the forces of evil trying to undermine everything good and a red hot heel needs a valiant hero to battle against, someone fans can root for, identify with, and look up to.

Wrestling heroes like Hulk Hogan, Dusty Rhodes, The Rock, and Andre the Giant are celebrated worldwide. In The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame: Heroes & Icons, Greg Oliver and Steven Johnson include more than just the household names, digging deeper to also tell the story of forgotten heroes and regional stars, like Tiger Jeet Singh, who has an elementary school named after him, and Whitey Caldwell, whose gravesite still sees flowers from fans 40 years after his passing.

Covering the 1930s through to the present day, the latest instalment in the acclaimed Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame series examines what makes a great hero.
