I am clearly not the only one with that thought. Local Iowa independent star Latin Thunder agreed. So he put his life and adventures into book form, appropriately titled Latin Thunder: My Journey Off the Top Rope.
|Much respect to the Superman tattoo.|
After over twenty years in the business, Latin Thunder delivers a strong history of the tribulations inherent with living the wrestling dream outside of national television. It is a hard road built around the reality of a day job, a growing family and a normal everyday life. But Thunder covers his path up and down the roller coaster of his time in the squared circle, never shying away from the ties he almost gives up on his journey.
As a part-time writer, I can certainly relate to those tribulations, as can any creative mind in pursuit of a dream.
The book is not without flaws. It could use a good pass from another editor and could be better formatted to fit the printed page. But while this leaves the interior not quite as pretty as it should be, the content shines through as you follow the compelling journey of Latin Thunder.
Pick up a copy of Latin Thunder: My Journey Off The Top Rope now at Amazon. Fans can see Latin Thunder in actin for Impact Pro Wrestling, Scot County Wrestling and at the upcoming Waterloo Hall of Fame show, as he teams with U-Gene Dinsmore against Jake Dirden(!) and Nate Redwing.
