About the Author

A Virginia-based writer and editor, Steven Johnson has won more than 20 regional and national awards for his reporting on a variety of stories. He wrote his first wrestling magazine story in 1973 and contributes to SLAM! Wrestling and other publications. Greg Oliver is the author of 14 books and counting, and the producer of the long-running SLAM! Wrestling website. He lives in Toronto, Ontario, with his wife and son.


"It's always been about the storytelling for me. It enhances everything. Tiger Woods winning the Masters again? Meh. Tiger making a long-awaited, seemingly inconceivable comeback? Magic. Pro wrestling, at its best, needs a compelling story, and because of what it is, it has a vast palette. People always ask me how I can love wrestling so much. I always respond asking if they like movies, and what's the difference? There isn't one. It's storytelling. And now I can give them a book to explain it all." -- Spencer "Spenny" Rice of Kenny vs. Spenny

"In my pro wrestling career, I've never been around two more educated and dedicated historians than Greg Oliver and Steve Johnson, who I deeply respect. They've created another must-read book that I hope you'll enjoy as much as I have. The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame: The Storytellers is a brilliant read." -- Jim Ross

"The writing is easy to understand; telling the events with interviews woven in to where it is entertaining and a history lesson combined, without a ton of facts and dates cluttering up the pages." -- Lance Writes blog

"Overall Rating: Oh Hell Yeah! This is a book that has tremendous re-read value, as each chapter is chock full of several unique, interesting and well-written stories. You're guaranteed to come across at least a few anecdotes that almost all fans have never heard of before and hopefully, you can learn a new thing or two about the squared circle while reading this." -- Bulldog's Bookshelf blog

"Littered with unforgettable characters and memorable moments, Oliver and Johnson have crafted a history of the support system of the industry that gives us all a precious peek behind the curtain, one that many of us have been searching for ever since we first started watching it on our television from our living room floor." -- SLAM!
