– Two past wrestling stars in Konnan and Ed Leslie (a/k/a Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake) are working on respective autobiographies. Leslie’s book will be called Reborn on the Fourth of July, the date in 1990 when he experienced a near-fatal parasailing accident. His face had to be surgically repaired with over one hundred metal plates, putting his wrestling career on hiatus for nearly two years. In the case of Konnan, his book will explore his lengthy career in the wrestling industry.
