Pete Gasparino aka Pete Gas of the Mean Street Posse and friend of the Coggin Toboggan has a BOOK FOR SALE on Amazon about his life, his experiences wrestling for the WWE during the Attitude Era, and his career defining interview with The Coggin Toboggan earlier this year (probably).
His book, Looking at the Lights: My Path from Fan to a Wrestling Heel, can be found on Amazon (here’s the link) or at a book store near you. It will be released on March 7, 2017, but you can pre-order now.
Even though he dodged our hard hitting question about his favorite Val Venis film, Pete was a cool guy and one of the more open people we’ve interviewed on this site. Gas was definitely a better interview than those TIGHT LIPPED comedians we have on every now and again. Jesus Christ, I’m not asking you to give us material, just how about answering our silly questions with more than ONE SENTENCE. You’re supposed to be eloquent and our readers want to know what your favorite Tecmo Super Bowl team was….DON’T SASS ME.
Gas and his buddies wrestled in sweater vests and khakis as part of the Mean Street Posse for three years with the WWE during the heyday of the attitude era. Gasparino and friend Rodney Leinhardt were brought into the organization by Shane McMahon, son of WWE Owner Vincent McMahon, and paired with independent wrestler Joey Abs to form “The Mean Street Posse.”
Despite being incredibly disappointed that we weren’t blessed with a Mean Street Posse reunion during Shane McMahon’s surprise run this past year, you still should definitely go buy Gas’s book.
It has a forward from JBL and an afterword from Edge, so you know it’s going to be pretty legit.
