Description - Wrestling Babylon by Irvin Muchnick

Traces the demise of wrestling's old Mafia-like territories and the rise of a national marketing base thanks to cable television, deregulation, and a culture-wide nervous breakdown. Naturally, the figure of WWE's Vince McMahon lurks throughout, but equally evident is the public's late-empire lust for bread, circuses, and blood. As this book demonstrates, the more cartoonishly unreal wrestling got, the more chillingly real it became.
