We try to celebrate the best of the best here on Awesome Truth, but sometimes you have to embrace the crap. Lucky for us, there's a book fully dedicated to all the garbage pro wrestling has offered us over the years. WrestleCrap has been a staple of pro wrestling since the internet came to be, documenting the worst offenses of WWF, WCW, Vince McMahon, and Eric Bischoff, but does its short, snarky style lend itself to book form? On today's episode, we get out our shovels and start digging through the Shockmaster, the Doomsday Cage match, Bastion Booger, Mantaur, Hillbilly Jim, and all the rest of pro wrestling's most famously awful angles, matches, and gimmicks.
