I get asked quite a bit what’s it’s like to be a pro wrestler… where do i start? How does somebody describe something they’ve completely dedicated themselves to?

Wrestling is filled with the good stuff but there is also the times that is filled with disappointment and setback.

Maybe this where I’m supposed to talk about the blood, sweat and tears?

Well in Matt Murphy’s autobiography, The Somebody Obsession, he nails it.

Matt overcame a less ideal childhood to follow a dream. He dedicated himself to it in ways other people can only imagine and achieved a level they can only dream about. From being the 1st graduate of the Harley Race Academy and being one of Harley’s best and brightest. He toured Japan, wrestled the best in the world, and entertained thousands. All while living with friends, waiting tables and wrestling with demons.

Matt’s book is an easy read with something for everybody. He’s got funny tales of language breakdowns with some of Japans best, to hilarious “injuries at his own hand”… Gives insight to some of the greatest stars in the history of pro wrestling. Harley Race’s competitive nature and the stubbornness of Bret Hart. Matt also gives his candid opinions on some of the best wrestlers covered in in the MWR area. Murphy does this with a writing style that makes you think he’s in the room telling you the stories personally.

This book is a must have for wrestling fans everywhere.
