About this deal

Big time wrestling has always fascinated me as the single most bizarre multi-billion dollar business there is.

With untold stories from a career spanning over 15 years and featuring the biggest names and controversial moments in wrestling history, THERE’S JUST ONE PROBLEM is an honest, unflinching look on how an introverted life-long fan unexpectedly became one the most powerful men in all of professional wrestling. Gewirtz revealed in the book that the hardest, any segment that has made Vince McMahon laugh was Hulk Hogan’s “ That’s The Wall” promo from WCW. Mildly interesting, especially the "inside baseball" bits about The Rock vs John Cena over Wrestlemania 26-28.

Anyway, this was a fun book and a great peek behind the curtain at the sheer GRIND that is WWE and, if you’re a fan of wrestling, you should check it out.

He s written on several television shows and has served as Executive Producer on NBC s The Titan Games , the upcoming Behind the Attraction on Disney Plus and on NBC s Young Rock based on the life of Dwayne The Rock Johnson. Brian shares many of his job details, the history of major WWE storylines, and behind the scenes stories. His friendship and working relationship with Dwayne Johnson would both make him an invaluable member of the writing team but also would help open doors for him in Hollywood years down the road. As expected, the job is not an easy one, and operating under a man with a work ethic the likes of Vince McMahon is a job that can only be done by select few individuals. Wrestling,being like the worst high school with its peer pressure and hierarchy, was awkward for a shy person, and Gewirtz made enemies without knowing or thinking, but dealt with, or ignored problems.It is impossible to overstate the impact that the advent and all-consuming popularity of the internet has had on our everyday lives, our culture, and how we give and take in information.

With all the recent news surrounding the former CEO of WWE, Gewirtz' peak behind the curtain shows just how endlessly challenging it was working for a man who always insists he is right.It is our intent and purpose to foster and encourage in-depth discussion about all things related to books, authors, genres, or publishing in a safe, supportive environment. With untold stories from a career spanning over 15 years and featuring the biggest names and controversial moments in wrestling history, THERE'S JUST ONE PROBLEM is an honest, unflinching look on how an introverted life-long fan unexpectedly became one the most powerful men in all of professional wrestling. I think the best memoirs come from those that are self-deprecating because they aren’t as in to themselves and you don’t feel like they are over-exaggerating to inflate their own ego. The curtain has been pulled, the bumps, the impacts the table shots that's all real, everything else, from names, to grudges, feuds endings and blow off matches are scripted either well in advance, or if WWE up to airtime depending on the whims of its chairman.

Throughout this journey Gewirtz found himself becoming both friend and antagonist to some of the biggest names in WWE history – Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena, Stephanie McMahon, Bill Goldberg, Paul Heyman, Chris Jericho, Shawn Michaels, and the two men who he worked the most closely with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Vince wanted to do everything differently and uniquely with his league and was letting the creative work overtime on this.

What I didn’t like about the book is honestly a taste thing that’s specific to me so this might not impact other readers, but I’m not a big fan of Gewirtz’s writing style. Vince and his team were brainstorming trying to name this new style but nothing was coming out of it. I don’t particularly enjoy the feeling of “man if I had to spend time with this guy I’d hate him too” when I’m reading from someone’s POV, but that’s just me. It’s a laugh-out-loud, can’t-put-down, sad-that-it’s-over kind of book and I loved every second of it.
