It’s an eye-opening look behind the scenes at the entertainment juggernaut.

Since officially breaking with the WWE on his wedding day in June of 2014, and wrapping up the final legal settlement with the WWE thereafter, Brooks has been working on a number of charitable projects and as a writer for Marvel Comics.
