    Thought it was really good. I'm a wrestling fan and remember his matches with The Undertaker. I didn't know much about him so was looking forward to reading this. Shocking how badly he was treated with regards to payoffs considering how good he was and how he was in main events everywhere he went once he became Kamala. Personally I think Vince McMahon should help James Harris out with his medical bills considering all he did for the WWE. Unlike some he didn't do drugs and was never an issue to w Thought it was really good. I'm a wrestling fan and remember his matches with The Undertaker.

    Too bad Mr Harris never earned what he deserved I have and continue to read stories from wrestlers who made their living in the ring traveling through territories. Good read and recommend to any classic fan.

    Those that know me know I'm a wrestling fan, especially from 1970s-1990s era (I write quite a bit on wrestling on my blog page), and like reading wrestling books. At first I was skeptical of this book, but this was an enjoyable surprise. A little backstory is that the man that plays Kamala (James Harris) lost both of his legs to diabetes and the author decided to fund raise money to publish the book to help cover his medical costs.

At first I was skeptical of this book, but this was an enjoyable surprise. A little backstory is that the man that plays Kamala (James Harris) lost both of his legs to diabetes and the author decided to fund raise money to publish the book to help cover his medical costs. Harris was not the typical wrestler who lost his money by elaborate spending or on drugs, like some other older wrestlers may have done with their career. Harris tells in his book how he would not be paid more money, like other wrestlers, when they wrestled in main event matches, his pay was close to the same whether he opened the card or was in the last match. There are great stories in the book, from funny road stories to mishaps in the ring, to locker room brawls he saw between the wrestlers. He tells how his original character , with the idea of Memphis booker Jerry Jarrett and Jerry "The King" Lawler created the Kamala character from Uganda, and first calling him "Kimala." Harris talks about how the legend of Andre the Giant being sch a nice person was false (even almost pulling a gun on Andre and carrying a knife into the ring when he wrestled him), to finding out that his pay was the same throughout his WWF/WWE career when he wrestled Hulk Hogan, The Undertaker, or Jake Roberts. The Kindle version has a few extra chapters, which includes how the book was funded, written by the author, which was very interesting, to several wrestlers writing their comments about Harris and his Kamala character, which is a great bonus. Also, thanks to Jim Cornette, there is an extra section of photographs of Harris from Cornette's personal collection. This was a very good read, even though at times Harris seems to talk about the race card more than I care to read, but this was common throughout the wrestling world in that era. Even though he talks about it a lot, it does not come off as whining ,so it is not that distracting, as opposed to several other wrestling books. This was a great read and entertaining. Harris was a great villian who did sell out places like Memphis, Mid South, and even main evented cards in the WWF/WWE, yet still drove a truck on his off time. This is a great story that wrestling fans need to read.
