The world of professional wrestling is full of the most interesting characters that have ever existed. A slew of out there personalities exits within the ring and are just as interesting outside of it. Over the years, a great number of wrestler written autobiographies have hit store shelves. These books delve into the hectic lives of wrestling legends and the types of superstars you may have never even cared about before. We’ve read through most of ’em, which is why we’re going to list the 15 of the top wrestler autobiographies you need to buy.
