Book Review: "Ten Pounds of Gold"-A Fun and Fact-Filled Look at the NWA World Heavyweight Championship
November 26, 2018, Michael Rickard
It’s been said that you should write what you know, and wrestling fan/historian/author Dick Bourne has shown this with his various books dedicated to the legendary territory, Jim Crockett Promotions (JCP). JCP was one of many promotions during the heyday of the National Wrestling Alliance, and like all NWA territories, it featured appearances by the NWA Heavyweight Champion. Now, in the book, Ten Pounds of Gold (2nd Edition): A Close Look at the NWA World Championship Belt, Bourne explores an important period in the title’s storied history. --> Click here for the full review.
Mike is the author of "Wrestling's Greatest Moments", the autobiographical "Laughing all the Way to the Bank (Robbery)" and the new novel "Flunky: Pawns and Kings" (which has a loose wrestling connection as well.) His website and blog are located at MichaelRickard.com.
