Books Info:

Front Row Section D free pdf You'll love this action-packed, lavishly illustrated look back at the Golden Age of Professional Wrestling-the greatest stars of the mighty Mid-Atlantic, the WCW and WWE. John Hitchcock shares his vivid memories attending live matches and television broadcasts from Greensboro during the 1960s on through the 1990s. You'll read about wrestlers on their way up and on the way down: Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Arn Anderson, Johnny Valentine, Wahoo McDaniel, Rip Hawk, Terry Funk, Ernie Ladd, Johnny Weaver, the Four Horsemen, Klondike Bill, even the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling! "They were a staple during grappling's heyday in Greensboro, N.C., and routinely appeared in front of thousands of jeering fans at arenas throughout the Jim Crockett-run territory. Unlike their "Four Horsemen" contemporaries, though, this roguish group was comprised of vocal ringside fans who occupied a prominent spot at the Greensboro Coliseum during the 1980s and early '90s. Long before the days of "smart fans" and "cool heels," there was "Front Row Section D." "Hitchcock relishes all the memories of attending live matches and television broadcasts during the 1960s on through the '90s, and there are plenty of photos and clippings to go along with the stories. Long-forgotten stars live on the pages of this book, and there are laughs galore on every one of them as readers relive some of the Mid-Atlantic glory days through Hitchcock and his eclectic cast of characters. "Like those long-revered shows of the past, this book is well worth the price of admission." -Mike Moneyham, Charleston Post

About John Hitchcock

John Hitchcock graduated from Greensboro College with a major in painting in 1978. He is a Greensboro, North Carolina native and life-long Professional Wrestling fan. This is John's second book. The first, Dear John, The Alex Toth Doodle Book, was honored with an Eisner Award nomination in 2006. He was featured in the documentary film about the life of artist Alex Toth in 2007. Hitchcock is an artist, storyteller, sort-of wrestler, and owner of Parts Unknown The Comic Book Store for the last twenty five years. Single (and quit looking for love a long time ago) leaves John plenty of time for his next book, Comic Book People, about the famous artists and writers he has been friends with for the last thirty years and counting.
