SLAM! reviews King of New Orleans
In a recent review of Greg Klein's The King of New Orleans, SLAM! Wrestling's Marshall Ward called the book "a fascinating and in-depth look into Junkyard Dog's rise to superstardom, memorable feuds and his life outside the ring. It's also a compelling tale of how the Deep South -- a hotbed of racial intolerance during JYD's formative years -- became the home of wrestling's most adored African-American idol of the '80s."
