Lol. You must've gotten your ass kicked.

Not sure of any books, maybe that WWE Encyclopedia that came out recently? And, of course, the internet.

You sure as hell aren't going to find any scholarly sources for this topic. Although if it helps, Vince, Stephanie and Linda all attended Congressional hearings a few years back. If you could dig those up they could be useful and considered as scholarly sources I guess.

Was there really a FALL of The Attitude Era? I always thought they just kinda ended it. Either way, thats cool that you're doing a paper on wrestling. You got balls.

haha thanks everyone for the support, this is awesome!

@starbuck - any ideas on where i can get those documents from the hearings?

and @Markymark88 (sick name by the way haha)- i always felt the whole Steph and HHH era ended the attitude era, because thats was right before the whole Smackdown Vs Raw thing happened.

I guess you could go onto whatever US government site holds Congressional reports and search for WWE. I really have no idea other than that though. Sorry lol. I'm definitely sure that they are out there. Maybe you could even look back through a few years archives on wrestling news sites to find them. I think it was in like, 08 or 09.

there was an issue of WWE magazine back in 2009 called the timeline of the WWE and it chronicles the history of the WWE from the early 80s. It has quite a large section on the Attitude Era. Check the WWE online store for the back issue.
haha fantastic knowledge.

Sex, Lies & Headlocks by Shaun Assael is a pretty solid read. It covers the scandalous underbelly of the wrestling business and has a lot of information about the fall of WCW, the rise of the "Attitude" era and a lot about the law suits against McMahon. It's a good read.

The Rise and Fall of Attitude Era? You better hope your teacher is not a wrestling fan cause any wrestling fan will tell you that's a bloody stupid topic!

How bout the rise and fall of WCW?
how is that a stupid topic? for most people growing up watching wrestling in my generation, remember things like DX, and the rock and stone cold at there biggest moments..i never followed WCW, i was always a WWF fan...it seems once we moved out of the Attitude era in wrestling, alot of people that i know stopped liking WWE, therefor if i talk about how it grew, and the years in between when it fell, i can get a good lengthy paper out of it.
