    This is my least favorite of all the Back To The Territories
    Lance Storm want even there, I woulda much preferred someone who could speak from personal experience, like maybe one of the Hart brothers
    It was also just boring, paid my twenty bucks and didn't even bother finishing it

    One of my favorite shoots to date sees Greg Gagne tell the story of the AWA, he and his father's careers, plus a great deal of exaggerated and outright made up stories about Hulk Hogan becoming part owner of the AWA, how Gagne invented the nWo, his workrate outshining the NWA stars', how Verne nearly invented the UFC, his downfall as a WCW agent, his time spent working in the WWE, sexually harassing divas, slight burials of Nick Bockwinkel and Ricky Steamboat and much much more! A must read IMO!!
