Bob Ryder's autobiography is set to be released this December by ECW Press. The book is titled "How I Helped Kill KayFabe: From Internet Geek to Wrestling Insider." The press material for the book reads, "A compelling chronicle that details Bob Ryder's involvement in wrestling journalism and his insider role in three of the industry's most important promotionsExtreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), and World Championship Wrestling (WCW)this autobiographical account documents the Internet's effect on professional wrestling's secretive entertainment empire.

Ryder details the breakdown of the mindset known as kayfabe, a word derived from carnival slang that describes the protection of industry secrets from the fans. He tells how he and his peers were able to get the scoops that drove the WWF crazy in the early 1990s and provides insightful commentary into the rivalry between wrestling journalists like himself, Dave Meltzer, and Wade Keller. Ryder eventually immersed himself in the entertainment side of the industry, attending many ECW events that allowed him behind the scenes of the hardcore outfit's most controversial moments, such as sitting next to Olympic gold medalist and WWF superstar Kurt Angle during the Raven/Sandman crucifixion or watching Sabu rip his arm apart at "Born to Be Wired."

At WCW, he was backstage for the debut of Rowdy Roddy Piper and the ascent of Vince Russo. He incurred the ire of Goldberg and he booked Ric Flair's last title win. The most explosive, history-making moments in contemporary professional wrestling history are all detailed, from Bret Hart's jump from the WWF to WCW and Hulk Hogan's heel turn to Owen Hart's tragic death and the author's own role in the birth of the TNA. Bob Ryder is a cofounder of the TNA Wrestling organization and oversees its administrative affairs.

A pioneer of professional wrestling coverage on the Internet, he organized the first online chat session featuring professional wrestlers, led the Prodigy Online Service's wrestling community from 1994 to 1998, launched the www.1wrestling.com website, and cohosted the WCW Live! Internet audio show."

My window closed about five years ago. I'm pretty sure I've made more money Not Writing Books than I ever could have made with an ECW Press title - except MAYBE when I was drawing unemployment from Gov. Arnold, but even then it might have been a toss-up either way. ;-)

Funny, I was just at Book Expo America in DC and ECW Press was there. I declined to stop by their booth, though ... didn't look like they had any cool freebies. I did, however, run into Wink Martindale of Tic Tac Dough and get a photo.

I am assuming this will be a pop-up book

I hope this opens the door for all the IWC people in the 90's and early 2000's to write books. Think of the possibilities:

Meltzer - How to write a 300 page long Run-On sentence
Keller - Mondays with Mitchell
Hyatte - *$#& %%*&#*($ %(_)( #&%&*( and your mother too
Shannon - (no joke here. His autobiography would be funny enough)
Scaia - The Middle Road: A history of Thumbs In The Middle

There are endless possibilities here people!

Yea, and all of them would be a look at pro wrestling from the IWC/self-aggrandizing POV of people who are in desperate need of lives.

You forgot about Scherer:

FRONT COVER: "Open this book to find your FREE $50,000!!"

INSIDE FLAP: "If you go to college, work hard, earn a degree, and get a good job, you too can earn up to $50,000 a year or more."

I'd probably thumb through it at Borders.

I'm kidding... I'd make it my first ever internet purchase.
