Founded by Greg Oliver and John Powell, SLAM Wrestling (http: // changed the way North America's true favorite pastime was presented on the web. With the backing of Sun Media and Canoe, SLAM Wrestling brought pure journalism to the muddy waters of the pro wrestling media coverage. Never in the Internet Age had the squared circle been viewed with a keen eye by reporters and analysts who broke down the philosophy of wrestling and feted its legends, while also not being afraid to show the very human side of the locker rooms that are hidden from the plain eye inside the world's biggest arenas. SLAM Wrestling takes readers on a journey through SLAM Wrestling's first dozen years and the often all-too real world of professional wrestling. From WWE to the independent leagues that dot North America's landscape, SLAM Wrestling gives the unique view of the reporter's eye as history unfolds, including interviews with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, John Cena, "The Rock" Dwayne Johnson, Trish Stratus and many others. Plus, for the first time ever, SLAM Wrestling's writers take you behind the scenes and share their insights into what made the site stand out as one of the most respected sources for information in all of the Internet wrestling community. From the celebration of WrestleMania XVIII in Toronto, to the tragic death of Owen Hart and many others, SLAM Wrestling has covered it all and now brings the history of the mat wars straight to your bookshelf.
