Wrestling at the Chase: The Inside Story of Sam Muchnick and the Legends of Professional Wrestling - Larry Matysik Larry Matysik takes us on a trip inside the inner workings of pro wrestling in St. Louis from the 50's until its demise in 1984, telling stories about such legendary pro wrestlers as Harley Race, Lou Thesz, and Dick Murdoch.

Here's a confession. I was a pro wrestling fan from age five until probably age thirty. And being a Missourian, I still have memories of Wrestling at the Chase. This book is loaded with interesting stories and anecdotes of what went on behind the scenes of what was, at one time, the most important show in the most important territory in wrestling. It's a must-read for any wrestling fan.
