Pressestimmen

"[A]n opportunity to learn about a legend not only in professional wrestling internationally but in mixed martial arts as well . . . I would recommend this book to anyone who was interested in learning about the early days of Catch-As-Catch-Can Wrestling." --onlineworldofwrestling.com

"In this book Billy Robinson takes the opportunity to set the record straight on a number of subjects, but it is much more than that. It is an opportunity to learn about a legend not only in professional wrestling internationally but in mixed martial arts as well. . . . I would recommend this book to anyone who was interested in learning about the early days of Catch-As-Catch-Can." --www.OnlineWorldOfWrestling.com

"Along the way we hear great stories about some of the legendary wrestling cities and stars like Karl Gotch. At 141 pages it's a great quick read with great stories for anyone that is a fan of catch-as-catch-can (today MMA) and pro wrestling." --www.RedCarpetCrash.com

5.0 von 5 Sternen Billy Robinson is a legend 14. Juni 2012
Von MMA Encyclopedia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Robinson is a bonafide wrestling legend, and with the help of Jake Shannon, tells the story, not just of his own career, but of British wrestling. Robinson and his mentors and peers were a unique bunch of tough blokes, capable of taking the average man and twisting him into pretzels.

Catch wrestling hasn't been very careful with its heritage. These great legitimate wrestlers were about to be lost to history. I'm glad that Robinson and Shannon grabbed them in a front facelock and dragged them into the limelight.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great review of wrestling! 5. August 2012
Von Brooks Butler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Billy was a champion. I couldn't put this book down. I still eat at his table every day. I bought it from him after his marriage dissolved. Billy has outlived his wife, Ulla, a Germanic lady of movie star beauty and dominating personality. At best, Billy could wrestle her to a draw.

Compared to real wrestling everything else is a pussy sport.

5.0 von 5 Sternen 5 Stars 4. Juni 2012
Von WolfhoundFC - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is a gem. Besides being a biography of one of the greatest men to ever wrestle, it is a time capsule into an oft times forgotten era of both British and American Pro Wrestling. Billy discusses men such as Billy Joyce and Billy Riley, Jack Dempsey, Gideon Gida, all true greats who have almost been lost to time and marketing trends. Billy Robinson is a living legend who has led a life to be celebrated. Jake Shannon did us a favor in helping record forever the life of a Catch-as-Catch-Can master.
4.0 von 5 Sternen "Physical Chess," As Told By One Of Wrestling's Grand Masters 18. Juni 2012
Von fred vallongo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In this memoir, Billy Robinson gives a unique insight into both "show," and "catch" wrestling. A product of the legendary Wigan style. Robinson grew up in a style of wrestling known as one of the toughest and most punishing in the world. Robinson himself had a well earned reputation as one of the toughest, legit performers to ever enter the ring.

This little book is filled with his observations of such famous stars of the last century as Lou Thesz, Vern Gagne, Dick Hutton, Karl Gotch, Rikidozan, Giant Baba, and Dan Hodge. He also provides stories on many of the lesser known, but no less remarkable wrestlers who toiled in obscurity.

He provides insight into an era when top promoters kept "policemen" on their payrolls to keep order in the ranks, and the line between "work," and "shoot," was sometimes blurred. My only quibble is that as is so often the case with wrestling autobiographies, this one covers a lot of ground without really providing much about it's subject. Perhaps that will come in another volume.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great History on Catch Wrerstling. 4. September 2012
Von Fred E Nimmon II - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I found this book to be a great historical read on Catch Wrestling. It's not so much a history of Billy Robinson as it is him paying homage to all the great Catch Wrestlers that trained him. He talks a lot about the mental game of chess wrestling and the strategy that goes on. I liked how he talked about how he was humble and his coach never gave him praise until he won Nationals. I think his quote from Billy Riley was "I'm hear to tell you waht you did wrong. Not wht you're doing right." Very good book and quick read as I read it less than a day. If you liked the Snowden book called "Shooters" than you will really like this book also.
