JNPO: 'Nitro' author Guy Evans on his WCW passion project

There has been no shortage of discussion over the years on the rise and fall of WCW, including this effort by our own Bryan Alvarez and R.D. Reynolds, but there has never been a deep dive quite like 'Nitro: The Incredible Rise and Inevitable Collapse of Ted Turner's WCW', the first book by author Guy Evans.

On a new Josh Nason's Punch-Out, hear my conversation with Evans and learn more about the book. If you've read the book or are thinking about it, I think you'll like this show quite a bit. And...it's spoiler-free. (Yes, there are some cool new things that you'll learn in the book!)

On the topic board:

  • Evans' background and why he picked this specific topic to write his first book on
  • How he got access to 120+ Turner employees
  • What he learned in his extensive talks with Eric Bischoff
  • Who he wanted to talk to and couldn't
  • Some of his key takeaways from the project
