Guide Review - Adam Copeland on Edge
The first half of this book details his life growing up and in the Canadian wrestling scene. He got his first break by writing a letter in a contest to get into wrestling school for free. One of his buddies started wrestling a few years later. That friend is known as Christian Cage today. While wrestling on the Canadian circuit, he became friends with other future WWE stars including Rhyno and Val Venis. At this point of the book, his story telling ability is shining and he comes across as a cool guy you'd want to hang out with.
Once he enters the WWE, the stories become less interesting. While detailing most of his feuds and major matches, the story seems to turn from an autobiography to a career recap. Most of the stories told from this point on were pretty common knowledge, but there are a few interesting tidbits thrown in (including a soapy JBL story).
