Batista Unleashed (WWE) (Hardcover)
Review by Gary Graham

Dave Batista’s story is that of a kid who could have gone either way; and it was wrestling that provided him with a way out and up. As a teenager he found himself in trouble with the law, later drifting from job to job until, while working as a bouncer, his temper got the better of him and he attacked two patrons who were giving his colleagues a hard time. It was this incident that made him decide to turn his life around. A hardscrabble wrestler who had been told that he didn’t have what it took to make it in professional wrestling, Batista took that as a personal challenge and signed with WWE. His determination to come back from injuries and the heart he shows in the ring have won him countless fans. More than once, on the brink of success, he has had it torn from him until finally, in 2007, he became WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Batista is also renowned for him forthright opinions of his fellow wrestlers. Tough and uncompromising, this book says it all.

This book arrived at my desk a few weeks ago, and as soon as I started to read it I knew I was going to like it and it was going to be one of those books that I could not put down.

Dave Batista is still in terms of experienced pretty new to the business and this might be a factor that would put people off buying this book. Dont let the fact he has been wrestling for only 8 years put you off!

This book has to be the most frank WWE release to date. No words are barred and Batista says it as it is. Through out the book the pure emotion spills out onto the pages and the language can be pretty course. This is Batista as he is, rough round the edges and shoots straight from the hip.

He does not hold back on people he has worked with in the business, some he liked and some he disliked. From his first ever training session at the wCw power plant, when he was told he would never make it right up to the present day (well earlier this year). Holding gold and main eventing some of the biggest wrestling events in the world.

This book is an inside look into the modern day era of pro wrestling in the WWE and looks at the business from the perspective of someone who is relatively new. Its a story of hope, love, heartbreak, death and determination to succeed. It will make you laugh and will have tears running down your face. This is the story of Dave Batista WWE Superstar.
