Autobiography of a troubled kid who never outgrew his lifelong dream of becoming a professional wrestler.

Amazon (Kindle version)
Matt Somebody: The Online Home of Writer and Former Wrestler Matt Murphy

 Many stars have shared their success stories in the crowded genre of professional wrestling autobiographies.  But for every star, there are a hundred also-rans, those of us who fell short of our dreams.

We, too, have a story to tell.

In my autobiography, The Somebody Obsession: A Nobody's Desperate Journey to Stardom, I reveal how I overcame a troubled, impoverished childhood to live my dream as a professional wrestler.  I had to succeed; failure meant damnation back into the white-trash hell from which I came.  While self-medicating the scars of a tormented youth with sex, booze, and wrestling, I reached for the stars and could feel them at my fingertips before my amazing ride crashed to an abrupt end.

My story is The Bullpen Gospels meets I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell.  Funny and poignant, it is about overcoming challenges and shows that sometimes the dreamer's biggest obstacle is often the one that stares back at him in the mirror.

Professional Reviews

Mike Mooneyham, Author of Sex, Lies, and Headlocks
"A heck of a story about the less glamorous side of the wrestling business."

Jason King, Yahoo! Sports
"This book is more addicting with each chapter. You don't need to be a wrestling fan to enjoy it."
