To some fans, he was a dominant champion. For others, he remains a complete unknown. This is the true story of pro wrestling’s most overlooked legend.

In 1981, Lynn Denton defeated both Andre the Giant and Dusty Rhodes in the New Orleans Superdome. He won titles in numerous promotions, with record-setting reigns in the fabled Mid-South and Pacific Northwest territories. Throughout the course of two decades, the man known as “The Grappler” competed against- and alongside- every major star of his era.

Grappler: Memoirs of a Masked Madman is a humorous and heartfelt autobiography that details Denton’s remarkable journey through pro wrestling’s territorial era. Readers will enjoy “behind the scenes” stories about Roddy Piper, Ric Flair, Bret Hart, Harley Race, Junkyard Dog, Dynamite Kid, Rick Rude, Ted Dibiase, Jerry Lawler, Bill Goldberg and countless other wrestling greats. Even the most die-hard fans will learn something new about these extraordinary men.

While he may not be a household name for many of today’s fans, Lynn Denton’s impact on professional wrestling is undisputed- especially among his peers. In 2014, The Ultimate Warrior acknowledged Denton in his WWE Hall of Fame speech and Jake Roberts has called him “one of my favorite guys to ever wrestle.” “The Grappler” was so widely admired that even UFC star Chael Sonnen imitates his classic interviews.
