Spandex, Screw Jobs and Cheap Pops Front CoverThat’s right, it’s been two years since the launch of The Only Way Is Suplex, and to celebrate, here is a competition!

The prize is a set of Pitch Publishing’s wrestling books –

‘Who’s the Daddy?’ by Ryan Danes
‘A Battle Royal in the Sky’ by Rich Tarantino and Jon Chattman
‘Wrestling’s 101 Strangest Matches’ by Oliver Hurley
…and of course ‘Spandex, Screw Jobs and Cheap Pops’ by TOWIS editor Carrie Dunn.

So to enter, all you need to do is answer the following question:

Send your answer by email before the deadline of 12 noon on Friday 4th October, and you could be in with a chance of winning the prize.

Good luck!
