This page is here to help you build a pro wrestling history library of your own and to assist with research.

Below is an extensive bibliography in book list format (also available in MLA and APA formats by request).

The titles, all from our library, range from Ph.D. dissertations to photo collections to elementary primers, with varying historical significance.

Academic titles (Ph.D. dissertations, Masters theses, journal articles, etc.) are relisted in a separate bibliography.

These are the only bibliographies of their kind on the Internet. You will even find a list of fiction with wrestling themes, by and about wrestlers.

See our Recommended Reading page for a more selective guide to the most essential works on the history of professional wrestling.
