It's a laugh out loud, can't put down, sad that it's over kind of book and I loved every second of it. As expected, the job is not an easy one, and operating under a man with a work ethic the likes of Vince McMahon is a job that can only be done by select few individuals.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.There’s a lot of that in here, and frankly Gewirtz comes off rather dorky (which he admittedly is, he talks about it constantly) and not as funny as he thinks he’s being. I don’t particularly enjoy the feeling of “man if I had to spend time with this guy I’d hate him too” when I’m reading from someone’s POV, but that’s just me.

But something funny happened over the course of several years and attendance of live Smackdown, Raw, and pay per view events. The author even gives examples of Vince being literal garbage to employees, but manages to makes excuses of it.

McMahon comes off as many things in the book — all-knowing, wise, stubborn, egotistical, inattentive, supportive, driven, and, perhaps most surprisingly, loving. There's a whole spectrum of stories between the good, the bad and the stuff that drove me absolutely crazy," Gewirtz says. Hachette Australia acknowledges and pays our respects to the past, present and future Traditional Owners and Custodians of Country throughout Australia and recognises the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. In one of his first meetings with Brian, Vince told him that WWE “doesn’t do comedy, we do humor” and that “there’s nothing funnier than someone stepping in dogshit. It is our intent and purpose to foster and encourage in-depth discussion about all things related to books, authors, genres, or publishing in a safe, supportive environment.

My thanks to both NetGalley and the publisher Twelve Books for an advanced copy of this biography and history on the world of professional wrestling. There are more than a few stories detailing Gewirtz contributing to some of Rock’s most memorable moments in the early 2000s. They also discuss his time at WWE, including when he was out on trial in wrestling court, working when Stone Cold Steve Austin walked out on Raw, and so much more. I’m no die hard wrestling fan by any means; I only started casually watching about 4 years ago after meeting my boyfriend, who has been a lifelong fan. Gewirtz revealed in the book that the hardest, any segment that has made Vince McMahon laugh was Hulk Hogan’s “ That’s The Wall” promo from WCW.The Great One always wanted to one-up himself and in the year 2000, he took the help of Gewirtz to crush Triple H that night in a promo.

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. Throughout this journey Gewirtz found himself becoming both friend and antagonist to some of the biggest names in WWE history – Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena, Stephanie McMahon, Bill Goldberg, Paul Heyman, Chris Jericho, Shawn Michaels, and the two men who he worked the most closely with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.He asked Brian if they had ever done a Triple H vs Chris Jericho match, which was the main event of WrestleMania a few months prior.
