The Complete History of WWE'S UK PPVs: 1991 - 2003

The Complete History of WWE's UK PPVS: 1991 - 2003 is the second book from Retro Pro Wrestling. 

With WWE Clash at the Castle now just days away, I thought it would be the perfect time to go back and relieve all those earlier UK exclusives and special events. 

The result was this book, which recounts every major* event from Battle Royal at the Royal Albert Hall to the company's last UK PPV for 19 years, Insurrextion 2003.

The Complete History... recounts every match,angle, promo video backstage interview from these events and features a Who's Who of WWE legends such as: 

Andre The Giant, British Bulldog, Bret 'The Hitman' Hart, Macho Man Randy Savage, Ultimate Warrior, Nature Boy Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Triple H, The Undertaker, John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Kurt Angle, Eddie Guerrero, Kane, The Rock and many more. 

Get your copy from Amazon today.

PS: I'll be back to posting my regular reviews from September 4th, 2022.
P.P.S: Both The Complete History of WWE's UK PPVs and The Complete History of NWA/WCW Starrcade will be published in print form by the end of November.

The Complete History of NWA/WCW Starrcade - Volume 1: 1983 - 1989 Now Available from Retro Pro Wrestling Books

Retro Pro Wrestling presents our first book: The Complete History of NWA/WCW Starrcade - Volume 1: 1983 - 1989, featuring every match, angle, and interview from the first six Starrcade events.

If you're wondering why new wrestling reviews have been somewhat sporadic as of late here on RPW, this book is partly the reason.

The other reason is that my usual laptop is currently broke, and I can't access the dozen or so new reviews I wrote, nor can I get at the folders full of screen grabs that would usually accompany those reviews.

I'll get back to publishing new reviews as soon as possible, but until then, I wanted to tell you how excited I am to publish the first volume of my complete Starrcade history.

Based on past Starrcade reviews I've published here on this blog, the book recounts everything that happened during the first six years of Starrcade events from Flare for the Gold all the way to Future Shock.

The book is currently available in eBook form only, with a print version due out later in the fall. 

It costs just $2.99, while Kindle Unlimited users can read the whole thing for free.

My next book will be The Complete History of WWE UK PPVs, due out mid-late August in eBookform.

Retro Pro Wrestling

New reviews of classic WWF/WWE events recalling every moment from Wrestlemania 1 - 30. You'll also find reviews of WCW, ECW, TNA and the occasional indie event, along with a look at old school magazines, merchandise and more.
