REVIEW – BY NEIL ROGERS
I remember when I was about 11 years old; my history teacher Mrs Mearden teaching my class about the Spanish Armada and telling us it was one of the biggest naval fleets ever assembled. At that point Ruth Gilpin, who was born and raised in Spain, put up her hand and told us that when she was taught the subject in Spain, that they were taught that it was a dozen or so old dilapidated ships and that “The English” had been lucky to win. My point being, in history, facts can be lost or changed over time with the victors putting their spin on things and the losers doing the same. Due to this simple fact of life, I expected that a lot of things mentioned in “The History of WWE: 50 Years of Sports Entertainment” to have to be taken with a pinch of salt. I am pleased to say that I didn’t find that to be the case.
