Bryan Alvarez and RD Reynolds announce plans for newly-revised and expanded 10-year anniversary edition of Death of WCW coming in 2014
and RD Reynolds
announced Tuesday on Figure Four Daily
they have signed a deal with ECW Press to write a newly-expanded
10-year anniversary edition of the 2005 Wrestling Observer Newsletter
Book of the Year, "The Death of WCW
The original manuscript was significantly larger than the final
product, largely due to the wrestling book market being significantly
smaller at the time. Nearly everything that was cut out will be
included in the revised edition, plus tons of quotes
from the major players, a look at the ten years following the death of
the company, a section debunking criticisms of the first book ("WCW
died because of the AOL/Time Warner merger"), THE WOLFPACK and more.
The book (which will also be available in a limited-edition hardcover
expected to be released in mid-2014.
How You Can Contribute
If you have suggestions of topics to tackle or expand upon in this
edition, email them to
. Both guys would also
appreciate hearing from anyone who lived through that period (wrestlers, office staff, etc). Everything will
be forwarded on to RD as well.
Thanks so much to everyone for all of the support. We hope that this
anniversary edition will be a book that can be looked back upon
historically as the definitive, most factually-accurate book detailing
the death of what was, for a brief period, the biggest wrestling
company in the history of the world.
