WWE star Mick Foley book recommendation and charitable tie-in, Chikara's King of Trios first-round tournament matches set, Vader returning to the ring for NWA Ring Warriors in Florida, Shawe Sewell note
By Jason Powell
-WWE star Mick Foley has endorsed the novel "Blood Red Turns Dollar Green" that was written by Irish playwright Paul O'Brien. "Paul O’Brien has really done his research with this book," Foley stated regarding the book. "I didn't know what to expect but he's really quite a writer. He has captured the feel of old-school professional wrestling territories almost perfectly and it really brings these characters to life. The action in the ring was the way it went down back then. And that ending. I've already asked him how long do I have to wait for more."
The book is a crime fiction set in the U.S. pro wrestling industry in the 1970s. Foley noted that every wrestling fan will enjoy it. The book is available at Amazon.com and via Paulobrien.info/index.html. The book is selling for $3.99 and 50 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the RAINN charity - the national's largest anti-sexual violence organization.
