Your books should come to you directly from Harper Collins. Thanks for your e-mails!

Harper Collins, the publishers of the critically acclaimed new book, "Georgeous George, The Outrageous Bad-Boy Wrestler Who Created American Pop Culture" is offering the first five people who respond to this post a FREE copy of the book!

This book is getting great reviews and has been covered in The New York Post and Wall Street Journal amongst other newspapers. I received my advance copy of the book and, at about half way in, I am blown away at the amount of information author John Capouya has been able to unearth.

Every fan of professional wrestling owes it to him/herself to read this historical retrospective on wrestling's first television superstar!

Donations Sought for Killer Kowalski - Fundraiser Scheduled

As most everybody reading this post has heard, Walter Kowalski has been off life support since last Monday (August 18th).

A fund for Walter's medical care has been set up that is accesable ONLY by Theresa Kowalski. The address to directly send funds that will be immediately available to help with medical costs and other expenses is:

The Walter "Killer" Kowalski Memorial Fund
Citizens Bank
876 Main St.
Malden, MA 02148

There will be a benefit show held for Walter and his medical expenses in Malden, MA on Sunday, October 26 at 2PM. Theresa's wishes are that all efforts be concentrated on this one event that she will attend. A longtime friend of Walter's (and former partner in his school), Richard Byrne, has secured the venue.

All participation in the event will be donated and all proceeds will go directly into the fund. They've already had volunteers from former students to stars wanting to participate.

If you knew Walter or even if you feel you have something to lend to the show talent-wise, please contact 781-324-9568 for more details.

Over the years Walter has touched so many people, so here is a special event and opportunity to give back to Walter and Theresa who both need financial help at this time.

Update on Killer Kowalski

This was received from Jamie Jamitkowski of Killer Kowalski's Pro Wrestling School:

In an effort to minimize inaccurate reports about Walter "Killer" Kowalski, his wife has asked us to send a brief update:

Initial reports by Georgiann Makropolous were correct in that Walter did, in fact, have a heart attack late on Friday. At the time, he was revived, placed on life-support and transferred from the nursing facility to an area hospital. Friday night and Saturday were critical for Walter. As of Saturday evening, Walter was more responsive to those around him, including some visitors from the wrestling industry. He is still being assisted by medical equipment but certain vital signs have improved slightly. The medical staff is hoping that he will continue to stabilize.

Walter is still in serious condition and we can all only hope for continued improvement. His wife believes that his slight improvement is due to the thoughts and prayers that he has been receiving from around the world. She asks that everyone continue to pray for Walter.

As always, messages can be sent to Walter through his school: or through the mailing address on the site.

Again, we ask that everyone think of Walter during this difficult time and resist the spread of inaccurate information and reports.

Thank you,
