A new book promising to be the definitive biography on NFL legend turned professional wrestling star Bronko Lagurski will be officially released in August 2022, has learned.

Bronko: The Legendary Story of the NFL's Greatest Two-Way Fullback by Chris Willis, the head of the NFL Films research library will chronicle Nagurski's life.  At the same time he was building his name in football, Nagurski was a two-sport star, becoming a massive pro wrestling star, competing from 1933 through 1960, including two NWA World Championship runs, with his first coming via a victory over Lou Thesz.

Promotional material for the book, which will be published by Rowman & Littlefield, features:

The remarkable biography of a small-town athlete who became one of the greatest players in NFL history. Bronislau "Bronko" Nagurski was a superstar for the NFL in the 1930s and one of the pioneer players of the league. He led the Chicago Bears to success on the gridiron as a larger-than-life personality, helping raise the popularity of the NFL during the Great Depression. In Bronko: The Legendary Story of the NFL's Greatest Two-Way Fullback, NFL Films historian Chris Willis tells the remarkable story of how Bronko became an NFL legend. Throughout his nine-year NFL career, Bronko's name became synonymous with power football. While the new league fought to gain respect and recognition, Bronko immediately captured the attention of sports fans in Chicago and across the country. The bruising fullback could do everything: run, block, tackle, and even throw the occasional pass. With the complete cooperation of the Nagurski family and unlimited access to personal letters, family scrapbooks, and photos, Bronko is the definitive biography of a true sports pioneer and NFL great.

There is no word yet how deep the book will dive into Nagurski's professional wrestling exploits.
