It's finally time to get extreme. Despite growing up outside of Philadelphia, Awesome Truth has yet to cover Extreme Championship Wrestling. To accompany us on this long-awaited deep dive into Paul Heyman, Tommy Dreamer, Raven, Sabu, Taz, and the rest of the legends who made ECW great, we welcome John Lister, author of Turning the Tables: The Story of Extreme Championship Wrestling, to discuss how a UK journalist came to write a detailed book on a Philly-based wrestling promotion.
