In this fascinating autobiography, Billy Robinson recounts his upbringing in post-WWII England amid a family of champion fighters, his worldwide travels as a wrestler, his time as a pro wrestling TV star, and his career as a coach to some of the biggest names in mixed martial arts. For the first time, Billy Robinson sets the record straight on: - who won the infamous street fight between him and the grandfather of superstar Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. - how his family was pivotal in introducing "God of Wrestling" Karl Gotch to Billy Riley's gym and the sport of catch-as-catch-can wrestling. - the accomplishments of some of the greatest competitive grapplers the world has ever seen and that you've likely never heard of before. This memoir fills a crucial gap in the history of catch-as-catch-can wrestling and shares the intriguing details of Billy's life, in his own inimitable voice.
