Well, for Mick Foley, this is his forth autobiography (just because you call it a diary or journal doesn’t mean it isn’t a biography Mick) and I posted about this back in June of 09 (Mick Foley writing Fourth autobiography?) But I really wanted to mention Goldust’s book first (not the first time Goldust has been mentioned on the blog, by the way: ECPW on wrestlezone.com):
I saw that Goldust aka Dustin Rhodes has a biography coming out later this year on December 14th currently titled: â€œCross Rhodes â€“ Goldust Out of the Darkness.â€ I was just thinking earlier this week that WWE hasn’t had a biography come out and sure enough I read this. I don’t think there is another person (aside from The Undertaker) who is currently on the WWE roster who’s career deserves to be chronicled in a WWE biography. I mean, Goldust is a character who’s been around since the raunchy (and amazing) Attitude Era, and although he did bounce to WCW and TNA he always seems to come back to WWE. Amazon.com has a link, but they haven’t published the cover art yet, so keep checking back to see what it looks like: Amazon.com
I do wish that he was a bigger player in WWE and not reduced to comic skits here and there. I really wish that his first match in a long time on Raw against Sheamus was just as good if not better than the ones they had in ECW (am I the only one that misses ECW? I mean, they treated Goldust, Christian, Zack Ryder, Yoshi Tatsu, and a whole bunch of other guys better when they had the “3rd” brand, now they’ve been reduced to Superstars or not at all…I’m not a fan of NXT). Goldust should be a threat, if only because of his veteran status not the guy that jobs to the younger talent. I mean, I get it, put over the younger talent, but I don’t think its fair that people like Triple H and Undertaker are still huge and Goldust isn’t…but who am I. Maybe I’m in the minority…
…and I like Goldust, even if he is strange…dammit…
Any, Mick Foley has another book coming out, and if you looked at the link above, at that time it was called Crossing the Line, now its called “Countdown to Lockdown: A Hardcore Journal” and it comes out on Oct. 1st. To be fair, in the link dated June 17th, 2009 I mentioned that:
“…most recently (probably like three years ago) I bought and attempted to read his third book, but I had trouble with it. Its still sitting waiting to be finished. I would highly be interested in finishing it, but every time we get into something really interesting, he interjects some other rant of a story, or something not even wrestling related. And Iâ€™m not one to skip, I have to read every damn page. So I stopped. It was that simple.”
But I’d like to say that after posting that June 17th, 2009 I finished the book. I enjoyed it. It was short, and only focused on his match at WWE’s ECW One Night Stand 2006. After reading it I was really interested in re-watching the match. I enjoyed it. I still think his first book was the best, but that’s just me. I think he should have waited to write another book, possibly after he was completely done with wrestling. But that’s just me.
At this point, what would writing aÂ fifth autobiography do? That’s right, nothing. I’d probably buy it too.
Anyway, amazon.com does have this one, so check that out: Amazon.com
I just want to say, I’d like both of these books for Christmas…anyone listening? Hello?
Random thoughts, too many guys on this post, especially with Goldust, I need to balance that out, so um…here’s a former WWE diva Stacy Keibler (that should do it):
