The Rock Says book. Read 88 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. The Rock says Know your damn role--and shut your mouth! But th. The Rock says "Know your damn role--and shut your mouth!" But that simple catch-phrase, embraced by the millions ñand the millions--of The Rock's fans. The Rock is layin' the smack down! With unapologetic honesty, and inimitable style, The Rock tells his story from his boyhood days traveling around the world.
But this book is just a paint-by-numbers celebrity memoir that was put out as a cash grab when wrestling books were selling really well. It took nothing more than a few days of speaking into microphone for The Rock, and maybe two or three weeks of writing for the co-author to churn out. Beyond that, he was 27 years old when it was published—it is exceedingly rare for anyone that age to have anything to say. I blamed my father for letting it happen, for failing to fight the demons. The truth, of course, was that he had fought…and lost.
I will, at a later date, post a top five listing of biographies that were ghostwritten. The forewords of both books clearly state Jericho wrote the things himself. But I digress. Horrible ones. Ones that are so bad that you almost have to read them to revel in their sheer awfulness.
As a fan, I enjoy these. These books are almost more fun than the good ones. Complete disclosure requires me to. I have been wearing out the tread on my library card. I do want to say one thing before going headlong into this list. There is a book generally accepted as the worst wrestling biography ever written.
I have been desperately trying to get my hands on this rag of lies, but where it was published, Canada, it has been deemed offensive, pornographic. It has been banned.
Go onto site and try to find it. I have read excerpts of it online and it truly seems like utter trash, but I cannot make an informed opinion on it because I have not perused the full volume. So that book is left out, although it is universally panned as the worst book on wrestling ever written. Anyway, lets get down to the depravity!
The first is timing. This is, sadly, not.
I have watched his entire career. I was sixteen at that point and had been recently turned on to the world of the internet. Moreover, at that point, I had been introduced to a community of wrestling nerds online, now referred to as the IWC Internet Wrestling Community.
I hate that term. I am far from some kid living in his parents basement ranting about a fake sport. Well, maybe not too far from that, but I still hate the connotation. Anyway, as I said, the first problem with this book is timing.
It was written in Sure, by the end of the book he is a three time WWF Champion. His pinnacle as a wrestler, as the ultimate example of a sports entertainer and there has been none finer came about a year after this book was published. There are tales of trying times in the CFL.
But, really, at this point, in wrestling, The Rock had not accomplished much.
He was on the cusp of greatness at the time the book was released, but not fully there. The second problem is that half the book is written in character, and, even as a wrestling fan, for a knowledgeable reader, that is a slap in the face. Can you imagine Anthony Hopkins writing his memoirs in character as Hannibal Lecter? That is what I generally look for in these books.
I will say this: As bad as this book on The Rock is, the man has a hell of a book on his hands now, when and if he decides to write it. Shawn Michaels is, without a shadow of a doubt, a wrestling legend, a demigod of sorts. His matches defy description.
HBK is truly operates at a p. D level where some of his contemporaries struggle for their Associates degree. A political tumor. Everything that he touched, aside from Undertaker, became diseased.
Shawn Michaels was the biggest asshole in the history of the business.
I, as a huge Bret Hart fan from those days, will admit I have a certain slant of bias that would make the constructors of the Leaning Tower of Pisa blush.
Not gonna lie. Where is the demographic going there? He says the clique had no power. They came, they saw, they tried to kill Bret Hart, they torpedoed ratings. Michaels book is just utter bullshit.
