Summary

Tojo Smith has a serious problem. He is the number one heel for a small wrestling promotion in Texas. He is also an earthbound demon and his mission is to inspire hatred in people. This is his service to the greater evil. But suddenly, the wrestling fans start to cheer for Tojo. He goes from the most hated villain of his promotion to the most cheered antihero. And no matter how loathsome his actions in the ring become, his popularity soars. When Hell notices this imbalance, Tojo is given an ultimatum: get the hate flowing again or be sent down into the fiery pits!

Perfectly Captures Old School Wresting Nostalgia

This was a really fun story. Anybody who grew up watching wrestling will enjoy this. Definitely brought back the memories of sitting on the couch with my dad watching the legends battle it out in the ring. This story did a good job of brining back those feelings while providing a funny and well told story as well. I liked how Terry combined a demon horror story with wrestling and he pulled it off perfectly.

I really liked the world that Terry created. The role that the demons play was interesting and I like how a young demon wanting to be a wrestler turned into Hell wanting to get into the wresting world. The characters were great and I definitely felt like they belonged in world Terry created. Tojo’s development throughout the story was solid and as a demon, he was a really great guy who I would have loved to watch in the ring. Liked the Cecil and Bubba tie in, they have their own great stories.

Todd Curless did an amazing job with the narration. I loved the different voices he did and really liked his ring announcer voice. He definitely breathed life into this story and made it a absolute blast to listen to.

Turning Face

Horror with a twist! I was hoping for the ending to turn out the way it did and was thrilled when it happened.

The narrator does an excellent job with voices and his reading is exciting. 👏

I was provided a free copy of this audible at my request. I'm thrilled to be able to provide my feedback. * Thoughts and comments in my review are completely my own *

Wrestling, good and evil at its best

Brought me back to a childhood spent at Madison square garden with macho man, Andre, the sheik, hogan and all the rest. Demons, half breeds angels Heroes and heels. Who could ask for more. Wonderfully written and very well performed. Will look for more by both author and narrator. I received this audiobook from the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookboom in exchange for an unbiased review.

Demon

Interesting considering I’m not a wrestling fan. It was different from West’s other book my favorite was Dreg (horror) as well as Cecil and Bubba book (funny). I still enjoyed it especially Tojo (demon), book has comedy and action. Only complaint is that West write longer book as he is good!

Wrestling fans might like it better

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Although it says wrestling in the subtitle, I had not expected that it would be the main focus. As a setting it works, but for me there was too much excited wrestling fan influence, including terms that mean nothing to someone who doesn't care for it. The story was entertaining enough.

What three words best describe Todd Curless’s voice?

Speak and Spell. At times he sounded like the 80s toy, very robotic.

Any additional comments?
