Teeny, Giant n the Wrestling World

Brannon Martin pens a biography of his grandmother, Christina "Teeny" Jarrett in great detail. Teeny for him was a loving and strong willed matriarch to both her traditional family as well as extended wrestling family. As an avid wrestling fan and very interested in the history of the sport, I was astonished to have not heard of her. She certainly needs to be both remembered and honored for her accomplishments. Not only was "The Grand Dame" told from her humble family life but from her humble beginnings as a ticket taker in wrestling Carny days but to her rise to riches and power as the force behind Tennessee wrestling promotions. All done very matronly, morally and sometimes with a strong grip. The book is filled with colorful characters, the good, bad, quirky and interesting from all her families. I especially liked the inside scoop on the Wrestling business. You need to know "Teeny" as well.
