AN AUTHOR who was a journalist by day and a wrestler by night has had his e-book published.

Roger Green’s book, titled Memoirs of a TV Wrestler, is available to download.

It is a no-holds-barred semi-autobiography, which lifts the lid on the wrestling business during the 60s and 70s.

Mr Green started his career in journalism in 1959, joining the then Portsmouth Evening News as a trainee reporter.

While working in Portsmouth, Mr Green trained in bodybuilding, and then wrestling.

He toured the country and took part in many matches during his career.

He said: ‘My training in journalism on a quality evening newspaper in Portsmouth and later in London, gave me the experience and acumen to write something very personal and incisive, about my experiences in the wrestling business so I’m grateful for those early days.’

The book is available from amazon.co.uk at £3.96.
