What do you think are the most underrated books about pro wrestling?

I think the Bob Holly, Howard Brody, Lita books are all excellent but didn't get the sort of acclaim that say a Mick Foley memoir received, but the one book that really stuck with me that I think everyone should have read and/or should be reading remains AJ Lee's book Crazy is My SuperPower.  That book has an excellent message and is intricately, perfectly written.

Do you think CM Punk ever writes a book?

Never say never, but the last time I asked him about that on record, he said he was tired of being sued.

I've read that in the old Apter magazines, several of the writers were simply Bill Apter or others using pseudonyms.  I'm curious if this is true, particularly in the case of heel columnist Dan Shocket, who died of cancer.

Dan Shockett was a real writer. There were times that Bill and others wrote as other writers. I can tell you that Stu Saks, Apter, Andy Rodriguez, Bob Smith, Brandi Mankiewicz, Steve Anderson, Dan Murphy and Eddie Ellner was all legitimate writers.  In the case of Apter, Murphy, Rodriguez, Mankiewicz and Anderson, I've met them over the years so I can personally attest they are actual people, or at least robots designed to look like people.

What's the strangest place you ever saw a wrestling show?

I have several:

*A truck stop on the New Jersey Turnpike for a show presented by the late Dennis Coralluzzo.

*Watching a New Japan show in an abandoned warehouse that was undergoing construction (as in there was no floor and concrete particles floated in the air!) in Manhattan.

*A wrestling school that was located in the basement of housing project in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

*A converted A&P supermarket that JAPW used to run regularly.

Do you think WWE ever runs the stadium in Las Vegas after failing to fill it at Money in the Bank?

Yes.  They'll fill it when they run Wrestlemania there one day.  This was just the wrong event booked on the wrong week.  They were going against UFC Fight Week, vs. a UFC PPV, a few weeks before Summerslam - which would be a much stronger "name" event for the WWE diehards who travel to milestone PPV weekends.
