Professional wrestling is not what it once was. Kayfabe is dead; the internet is in full swing; old habits die hard. The time has come to reassess the industry's identity. 101 WWE Matches To See Before You Die hopes to do just that, challenging orthodox preconceptions of the world's greatest performance art. The methodology is simple: select 101 matches from WWE history that highlight the most important issues permeating professional wrestling today. But don't call them match reviews. These are moral, historical, philosophical must-read muses of must-see art that will enrich your experience as a follower of WWE; question your responsibilities as a fan; ponder your right to be a critic; present a new, different way to watch professional wrestling; and, ultimately, challenge your existing ideas of what professional wrestling can be at its very core.
