Former ECW World Tag Team Champion New Jack, one of the most outspoken and controversial personalities of the 1990s and beyond, will be releasing an official memoir this November, titled New Jack: Memoir of a Pro Wrestling Extremist.

Promotional material for the book notes:

You may have cheered for New Jack. You may have booed him out of the building. You may have even feared him at times. But until now, you've never really known The Most Dangerous Man in Wrestling.

For the first time, the man born Jerome Young opens up about how he became one of the stars who enabled Extreme Championship Wrestling to make a permanent mark on the professional landscape. His crazed dives off balconies and scaffolds; his bloody, weapon-filled mat wars that trampled the line between reality and entertainment--this memoir reveals the perspective of the man at the center of them all and includes new disclosures about the infamous incidents with Mass Transit, Gypsy Joe, and the stabbing of a fellow wrestler in Florida. Beyond the gimmicks that united white supremacists and the NAACP against him and his fellow performers, New Jack candidly discusses the violence in his youth that nearly led him to a career in crime, his past as a bounty hunter, a near-fatal drug addiction, the last months of ECW, and his place in wrestling history.

The book is co-written by Jason Norman, who has released several books on the horror genre and will feature a foreword from The Blue Meanie.

New Jack: Memoir of a Pro Wrestling Extremist.will be officially released on 11/28.
