When Andy Kaufman slapped Jerry "The King" Lawler and swore at him on Late Night with David Letterman, the two men and the legendary manager Jimmy Hart were the only people privy to the planned (and unplanned) elements of the row, as revealed in this autobiography of "The Mouth of the South." Beginning with stories from his days onboard Dick Clark's Caravan of Stars as a singer with the Gentrys, Jimmy Hart offers straight talk about stardom and his entrance into the wrestling arena as a manager. An insider's perspective on pro wrestling's most outrageous personalities and matches fills this celebration of the business and spectacle of such organizations as the World Wrestling Federation, World Championship Wrestling, Wrestle Xpress, and the Xtreme Wrestling Federation. Wrestling fans will relish these rarely told stories of insider upsets, personal victories, and unbelievable moments in the history of pro wrestling.
