Most 'best-of' wrestling books which immortalise showdowns between rival Superstars focus on single matches. But a match is simply one part of a much longer, much more interesting storyline. What makes a showdown memorable, even legendary, is more than the moves, the bodyslams, the count-outs. It's not just the action that drives the drama -- it's the backstory: the feud. From the immortal Hulk Hogan to the 'legend-killer' Randy Orton, Showdowns is the first book to detail in full the stories of the rivalries that fuelled epic encounters between the greatest names in World Wrestling Entertainment. Undertaker, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Mick Foley and Shawn Michaels are just some of those whose long-running battles with their personal arch-nemeses are examined here in vivid and entertaining fashion; ratcheting up the tension in match after match, stoking up partisan and explosive support on the part of their fans and culminating in their ultimate showdowns. Illustrated throughout with eye-popping action photographs, this is a book no wrestling fan will want to be without.
