“Vance Nevada has done as much as anyone in the business as a writer, historian, and as a wrestler. I’d say his contribution is as significant as the Harts or any of the top people in the business in Canada. Having spent a lot of time in that country during my career, it was very interesting to learn some of the history. This book was hard to put down once I started reading it.”

“Wrestling In The Canadian West accurately describes what it was like for those of us who travelled the roads on a daily basis in this unique and spectacular area of professional wrestling history. The author clearly illustrates how the business over the years has now come around full circle, as he is living it himself, and dealing with the same trials and tribulations wrestling’s pioneers faced in this area more than a hundred years ago.”
