Hey guys, I'm sure many of you have heard about BJ's new book titled Why I Fight. I was wondering if anybody who has read it could let me know how it is; i'm considering buying it but I want to read some reviews from other mma fans to see if it's worth the read.
Thanks!

On the topic of books -- which is a better read -- Matt Hughes' book or Randy's book?

Might pick one up this weekend with my Borders 40% off coupon...

( Hit me with a PM -- don't wanna hijack this thread further ;p )

If you want more reasons to hate Matt Hughes I'd recommend it....I haven't heard anything about Randy's book, Forrest Griffin's ''Got Fight'' is hilarious though if you haven't already read it. Btw the site wouldn't let me send a pm.....

I think you need like 50 posts or something before you can PM.

I had the same problem way back. Ended up hijacking a thread to send someone a "personal message" through a public post.

I really enjoyed Hughes' book. It made me understand a lot where he came from and how he was raised. I don't see how it would really give anyone a reason to hate someone.

Forest Griffin's book had me rolling the whole time. I highly recommend both. I haven't read Randy's book, and doubt I'll ever read BJ's. I can't stand BJ.

(To the death Geroges!)

Forrest's book is garbage, check it out at a library if you must. It has a quiz and asks what you do after you lose a fight and if you chose just run from the ring or something he says that you are a grade a douche and a man takes a loss like a man, lmao. The Hughes book was self gratification but not horrible. Save the coupon imho for a Silva or Brock book, those would be a good read.

THE PLANE RIDE FROM HELL

This infamous incident took place on a chartered flight which took place as the RAW crew flew back to the US after the 2002 Insurrextion PPV in the UK. In wrestling circles it became known as the a Plane Ride from Hell.
Lets take a look what happened:

Now bearing in mind Jim Ross, president of talent relations was onboard to uphold the law, along with road agents Arn Anderson, Dave Finley, Gerry Briscoe, Michael Hayes, locker room leader the undertaker was present, along with senior writers Stephanie Mcmahon and Paul Heyman...... so you'd think the crew would behave themselves right???
WRONG!
Many of the guys were having a good time drinking onboard untill some got completey sloshed and things really got out of hand:
Bradshaw got into a tiff with michael hayes, who had reportedly been in a grumpy mood the whole tour... it turned physical, and ever the bully, Bradshaw floored the former freebird... but it didn't end there! a couple of wrestlers decided to teach Hayes a lesson by cutting his hair whilst he slept. Not surprisingly Sean 'X-Pac' Waltham did the honours. Hayes awoke to find his new shorter hair-do and went ballistic! With kevin nash not on tour with injury, and scott hall semi-conscious after drinking a skinfull, Waltman didn't have a lot of backup, but somehow managed to avoid a beating. (Hayes mullet was stapled to the wall at the next RAW taping! and hayes blew another fuse).
Of course the lunacy didn't end there! Ric Flair was stumbling around in his robe (with no pants underneath) like he often did when partying in his NWA heyday, and exposed himself to a female flight attendent, Dustin 'Goldust' Runnels serenaded his ex-wife Terri with gushy lovesongs over the PA system, she was not amused! and after ignoring her pleas to stop she had to complain to jim ross who finally persuaded the drunken Runnels to finish his bad musicals!
Meanwhile Scott Hall and Curt Henning had been having fun spraying others with shaving cream... untill the intoxicated Hall passed out. Henning got into an argument with Brock Lesnar over their shooting skills which turned into a brawl... taking Triple H and Paul Heyman to intervene... the group fell dangerously close to the plane door during the scuffle.
Despite the presence of senior WWE personnel onboard, many wrestlers totally lost control. Even the undertaker... the so-called locker room leader, the man who commands so much backstage respect.. did virtually nothing to maintain order.
As a consequene curt hening was released from his contract, as was scott hall, who was so docile on the trip that people had to check his pulse to see if he was still alive! Others received warnings for their misbehavior and the WWE had a huge black eye on its reputation. JR was quick to announce that WWE would no longer serve alcohol on overseas flights!

Read the first two chapters so far and have been enjoying it. If your interested about BJ Penn as a person and a fighter, then it is a must buy.
