Book review of 'The Three Count' by Jimmy Korderas
Jimmy Korderas is a friend of mine, so I wanted to unequivocally love “The Three Count.” But unfortunately, in the end I’m left more with mixed emotions. My problem with the book, if you can call it that, is one of perspective. There are two parts to the book in my opinion: the first I enjoyed and found quite fascinating, and the other part just wasn’t for me. The part of the book that I loved was the “getting there” portion of his story. Jimmy’s journey from fan to WWE referee is a remarkable tale, one I doubt will ever be duplicated. The industry has changed and I’m not sure in its current form that it’s possible for a guy to almost literally sneak in the back door, and inch by inch earn his way onto the team, as Jimmy did.
