VOW Book Review: Death of the Territories

The story of Tim Hornbaker’s new book Death of the Territories is one that’s been told hundreds of times across various mediums: Vince McMahon and the World Wrestling Federation’s meteoric rise to the top of pro wrestling and the transformation of the industry from small, regional powerhouses to a behemoth bigger than the sport has ever seen.

What helps Death of the Territories stand out from the crowd, though, is telling the story differently than any book before it.

Death of the Territories is a unique trip down memory lane aided by the expert weaving of newspaper quotes, detailed discussions of television contracts and anecdotes that combine to provide a well-traveled story from a new, interesting perspective.

There are some flaws along the way but Death of the Territories is the new standard-bearer in books for this era of American pro wrestling. I cannot recommend it enough.
