The Legend of Ricky Thunder is most definitely about a pro-wrestler. And it definitely has other pro-wrestlers in it. And it definitely has a gigantic climactic fight scene at the end which is, basically, the most amazing wrestling match ever.
But it's not a wrestling book. It's about a man coming to terms with his own self doubt right at a time when the pressure to absolutely NOT do that is at its greatest point. We can all relate to being put into a corner and the universe attempting to crush you into submission. This is that story. Just with a dude who has an awesome mullet who kicks people in the face and says "bro" a lot.
Get the book and you'll see, and if not, well, I bet you know a wrestling fan who would enjoy it. But you better tell them too, because I bet if you love good time jaunts in storytelling and some deft genre mashing you'll enjoy it, keep your book and then they'll miss out on the chance to have something pretty sweet too.
