Wrestling With the Devil - Reviewed

In Lex Luger's poignant autobiography he reveals a lot about himself and his missteps in life leading up to, throughout, and after his rise to pro wrestling fame. He is not a master story teller, but you do feel like maybe he would talk about his life in this way if you were to have a conversation with him. And his honesty is brutal, which is kind of endearing given that he's telling you about his own foul-ups.

This is definitely an evangenlical story, so if you're turned off by that sort of thing you likely won't care for the book. But if you can an enjoy the story of how a man completely destroyed, and then rebuilt, his life, you should have a winner on your hands here.

Lex Luger becomes rather inspiring by the end of the book. And at several points I myself identified with pieces of his struggle. All in all it's a fairly decent read and I can see many people getting on the Lex Luger fan wagon after this one, if they weren't there beforehand.

This book was giving to me through the Tyndale Blog Network in exchange for my honest review of the work.
