- Jimmy Korderas, who worked as a referee for WWE from 1988 to 2008, will release an autobiography detailing his experiences with the sports-entertainment organization.
The synopsis for the 300-page book, The Three Count: My Life in Stripes as a WWE Referee, reads, “Highlighting the triumphs and tragedies Jimmy Korderas experienced, this entertaining biography focuses on his 20-year career as a World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) referee. For the first time, Korderas talks about the harrowing experience of being in the ring during Owen Hart’s accident and about the horrific effects of the Chris Benoit tragedy—the most difficult moments of his life in wrestling. The book also includes untold stories from both inside and outside the ring, highlighting the bonds Korderas formed with WWE superstars such as Eddie Guerrero, Edge, John Cena, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Christian, and Chris Jericho. A fun read from a man who, rather than having an ax to grind, wants to inspire wrestling fans and prove that dreams do come true.”
It is scheduled for release on April 1, 2013. The foreword is being written by WWE Hall of Famer Adam “Edge” Copeland. To view the book’s cover, which features Korderas, Edge and The Undertaker, click here.
