Canadian Title Book - Slam! Review

Thanks so much to Marshall Ward & Greg for the review of the Canadian Title book on Slam! 

"A trip down memory lane, The Canadian Heavyweight Title: The Complete History 1978-1984, published in co-operation with the Mid-Atlantic Gateway website, is a remarkable, compelling, and long-overdue tale about a championship belt that shared the stage with some of the most respected titles in professional wrestling history."
