After a year in the making, my book on that wonderful old Missouri State Title is out and avaailable from Scott Teal at Crowbar Press.

The renown regional title promoted by legendary Sam Muchnick in St. Louis and proudly held twice by the one and only Jack brisco.

Here is a link to my website page on it:

Thanks to everyone who helped make it possible!

So your Roger Deem?

I've been reading the book for three days at work. I thought I had read enough stuff on St Louis with Matysik's material and all the research done on the city...but I can't put it down. A lot of cool info & ideas are in it.

It was fun to read Harley Race claiming he invented the vertical suplex and the double arm suplex (page 25). How I don't know if that was true, but I don't think fans today realize what a "state of the art" performer Race was in the 70's.

The Race/Backlund match in MSG was shown last year on the WWE website and and some fans were disappointed. I watched & disagreed. It had all of the major moves of the period. Stuff that is taken for granted today but was the base for everything done today. I didn't see a suplex until 1974 when Pat Roach wrestled in LA.

Liked the design of the book. Good book.

I think you should have said something about how Sam Muchnick's style came from Tom Packs and from the way wrestling was promoted thru out America before 1936. Thanks.--Steve Yohe

Sure could have talked about Packs but I was really trying to keep focused on the title years. So much more could have been said about Muchnick.

Thanks for your kind comments.
