OFFICIAL DANNY DAVIS AUTOBIOGRAPHY!  

Kenny Casanova who brought us WWE wrestler Kamala's autobiography  and also Brutus Beefcake's book (just this year) is set to again create an autobiography perfect for 80s / 90s wrestling fans, but that's not all. This time, the book is also an easy-to-read inspirational book that is perfect for readers in high school.

Kenny's recent mission as a writer at WOHW.com has been helping wrestlers self-publish their stories for the appreciation of future generations. With no middleman publisher in the mix, your dollars directly support the wrestler. Simply put, they own their book in the end so they get the majority of the money. Projects like this one create valuable merchandise for them to help provide an extra revenue stream in their semi-retirement from the ring.

THIS BOOK IS A GREAT EASY READ!

This 200-page autobiographical book on Dangerous Danny's life is a hybrid that all ages will enjoy. It is designed for wrestling fans, non-wrestling fans, and people of all ages. It is perfect for the wrestling fan/collector, and it is also perfect for a teacher looking for a book that pushes the importance of having a work ethic. This book would be great signed in a wrestling collection, and it will also fit nicely in the young adult literature section of a library! ...It is the perfect blend of both worlds.

ABOUT DANNY DAVIS - Danny's book starts with how he grew up a poor kid during the 1970s in Brockton, MA. He came from a broken home that was so small there wasn’t even space enough for him to live there. Taking to life on the streets, he did whatever he had to do to survive. Stealing, violence, and crime all led him to reform school and eventually - jail. 

Read how Danny turned his life around by trading in his bars for his trademark black and white stripes. Danny Davis started driving a ring truck for the WWE. Eventually through hard work, he became both a referee and a professional wrestler. He played the classic masked jobber "Mr. X" on many shows, while refereeing later on the very same events. Trained by the iconic Chief Jay Strongbow, Danny went on to work with the likes of Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, Brutus Beefcake, Macho Man Randy Savage and virtually every big name in the golden era of wrestling. Danny is famous for playing the first real “crooked referee” in WWE, eventually joining Jimmy Hart's “Hart Foundation” as a referee turned wrestler.

Danny’s very real story of survival, clawing his way to the top, led him to become what he is today... a legendary name in wrestling history. His inspirational story is about doing the right thing, developing a good work ethic, and the overall importance of family in the end.

TEACHERS - IT IS AN INSPIRATIONAL BOOK YOU CAN USE IN YOUR CLASSROOM

This book is a hybrid of two writing styles! It has been specially designed to connect with two demographics; young adult/high school students, and fans of wrestling autobiographies. Teachers can teach the positive message the book has and pull out teachable moments highlighting symbolism, themes, and all the good stuff needed in the class room.

Danny’s inspirational story is one that certainly transcends the ring: 

  • Living a tough childhood on the streets 
  • Shifting away from and overcoming bad decisions 
  • Developing a good work ethic 
  • Breaking into the wrestling business setting up rings Vince McMahon’s early day takeover of wrestling 
  • Climbing the ladder to get somewhere 
  • Working hard, getting promotions, & earning respect 
  • Refereeing for the biggest stars ever 
  • Wrestling as a masked “jobber” named MR. X 
  • Mutitasking as both a ref & wrestler on the same shows 
  • His huge run as a bad-guy ref turned wrestler
  • Becoming a member of the legendary Hart Foundation 
  • Making important decisions about family

WRESTLING FANS WILL LIKE:

...the fact that “Dangerous” Danny Davis gives you a special behind-the-scenes look on the road working with: Andre The Giant, Mr. T, Chief Jay Strongbow, Captain Lou, The Grand Wizard, Roddy Piper, Jake The Snake Roberts, Hulk Hogan & more!
