Overview
A fascinating history of one of the hottest wrestling territories of all time Montreal was the proving ground for some of the biggest names in wrestling, including Andre the Giant, Abdullah the Butcher, and the infamous Mad Dog Vachon; it was the site of the first midget battle ever; and made famous worldwide for the infamous Survivor Series screw job that saw Vince McMahon, the Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels, and Bret Hart create the attitude that reshaped the business. Mad Dogs, Midgets and Screw Jobs is the ultimate guide to Montreal s legendary place in professional wrestling history. Get the lowdown on all the major wrestlers who made their name in the territory, from Yvon Robert, the Rougeaus, and Gino Brito to Edouard Carpentier. With a detailed account of the promotional war between the Rougeaus AllStar Wrestling and the Vachons Grand Prix, a complete history of how wrestling developed on Montreal TV, and an investigation of the murder of Dino Bravo, this book demonstrates how much of what has happened in wrestling, just may have happened first in Montreal."
