Hello Mr. Thesz,

First off, I want to let you know how much I enjoyed "Hooker." I've probably read it cover-to-cover at least five times, and I learn something new each time.

Did you ever let anyone into the secret society of hooking, the way men like Ad Santell and George Tragos did for you? If so, who? If not, why?

Thank you.

Good Question!

By the time I had the time to coach someone, the need for such knowledge no longer existed in professional wrestling. I am doing some seminars now when I can, but I never gave anyone the attention George Tragos gave me. However, noone ever wanted the knowledge enough to work for it. A wrestler must be pretty profecient to even begin training and learning the hooks. Writin gHooker made me realize how wonderful a gift I was given - or at least allowed to work for.

Happy you are enjoying the book. I had a great time doing it. It is the closest I can get to doing it all again.
