I learned more about that time period in wrestling that I loved, the McMahon family, and the inner workings of WWE. Hearing this, Gewirtz immediately started laughing and that irked Paul Heyman enough to want to fight Brian. Stories About Jerry Lawler, Hulk Hogan, Andy Kaufman, and an Insider’s Look at the Golden Era of Pro Wrestling. Vince always encouraged Brian to fight for his ideas but if he ever had a disagreement with Vince himself, Brian would never win, which is what ultimately damaged their working relationship. Brian knew he couldn't win in an argument based around what should or shouldn't be on television, but even after years and years of loyal service, Vince still would only listen to himself and if he didn't get what Brian presented, it didn't go on the show.

In knapp unter 300 Seiten fühlt es sich eher an, als würde man bei seinen ganzen Erlebnissen nur an der Oberfläche kratzen.Amidst allegations of Flash action figure payola, the infamous wrestlers court, multitudes of laughs, made-up words, 5 second poses, roasting local sports teams and battling at WrestleMania in my hometown over a Japanese shampoo endorsement (you knew I had to mention it), we've both ended up where we needed to be. However, Brian Gewirtz revealed that this gimmick had nothing to do with punishment, and it was just a bad creative decision taken for him.

However, having a narrator who is familiar with the people he is talking about would have improved the experience. In another chapter, Gewirtz shares "the most intense, emotional, nerve-wracking, yet triumphant" experience of his career, when he found himself writing a Saturday Night Live sketch for Johnson, who was hosting the show, before the pair soon booked it to San Francisco for WrestleMania, writing the his script for the next show overnight on the plane. I can only imagine how frustrating this can be for someone who knows the product inside and out and has proven time and time again to be of considerable value.I never met someone in the wrestling business that wasn't a wrestler that had as much knowledge and insight as Brian. EDIT: Had I known more clearly what a monster Vince McMahon was a few months ago, I would have never read this in the first place: Brian Gewirtz is a mark and a piece of shit for having such a long association with the WWE, maybe read Abraham Reisman's Ringmaster: Vince McMahon and the unmaking of America instead? Vince McMahon seems more of a driven business owner, with a strong ego and sense of righteousness, with a few quirks. Vince wanted to do everything differently and uniquely with his league and was letting the creative work overtime on this.

One such occasion is told in detail involving Gewirtz taking a trip to "wrestler's court" (a mock trial in which one wrestler is accused of something by another backstage: usually a rookie running afoul of a veteran) when Gewirtz was accused of favoring Edge and Christian after Gewirtz was seen accepting a gift in what others assumed was in exchange for more television time. How does a low-key personality deal directly with his boss, the most brash, unpredictable alpha male on the planet, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon? Except in the case of ex-creative director Vince Russo, who gets lightly -- and deservedly -- roasted. There are so many unwritten rules that it's impossible not to run afoul of them, and Gewirtz constantly finds himself in hot water with men two, three, or four times his size. Ansonsten um endlich mal zum Positiven zu kommen, ist dieses Buch echt klasse und lustig geschrieben.

Gewirtz does exactly that here, with a fondness and self deprecating voice which can only come from a little distance and perspective. Just this past July, Gewirtz was cleaning out his parents' basement when he stumbled upon old wrestling action figures, some of whom — like his childhood hero "Rowdy Roddy Piper" — he later got to work with while constructing episodes of Monday Night RAW or the annual WrestleMania. Brian and Paul Heyman were summoned to Stephanie McMahon’s office where Vince McMahon asked them to take Russo seriously. Being a wrestling fan, probably one of the more bizarre questions I faced was when I told a college friend I was reading a book written by a wrestler.

Hachette Book Group is a leading book publisher based in New York and a division of Hachette Livre, the third-largest publisher in the world.It contains some of the most hilarious and never heard true stories from the wrestling world, mostly from WWE. The Hot Read, Conference Championship Edition: The Lions Gave Away a Super Bowl Berth There is nothing noble about Detroit’s loss. And, as Gewirtz became accustomed to during his time at WWE, he then found himself scrambling to make edits seconds before Johnson stepped out in front of the crowd. I am a Creative Mind with the ability to think outside the ox and the flexibility allows me to think creatively in terms of other niches as well, apart from my current niche.
