Publisher's Summary

Pro wrestler and political commentator Tyrus goes deep into his wild but triumphant life story, from his painfully dysfunctional upbringing to bodyguarding for Snoop Dogg, to becoming a wrestling icon and one of the most provocative on-air voices today.

The product of a 1970s mixed marriage, George Murdoch learned to fight early in life, fending off both race-baiting bullies and the demons of a dysfunctional home. Couch surfing all through high school and most of college, the quick-witted, sharp-tongued giant played football, ran drugs, and bounced at clubs to try to survive. After a false start with the WWE, he eventually became Snoop Dogg's bodyguard and traveled the world with the hip hop legend, biding his time and honing his rap. When the WWE urged him to return, George became "Brodus Clay" and, for the next several years, reinvented himself numerous times under the watchful mentorship of the legendary Dusty Rhodes, "the American Dream." He was eventually christened "Tyrus," and shortly after, a chance social media encounter with Greg Gutfeld at Fox News resulted in Tyrus finding a new skill: sage social commentator. Ferociously funny, blunt, and tenacious, Just Tyrus traces his unlikely and spectacular rise. As always with Tyrus, it's in-your-face and offers no apologies.

Good listen, could have been better

I was a little disappointed by the listen. Tyrus warned readers at the outset we would learn only what he wanted us to learn. So I wasn't surprised. With that said, what he shared was interesting, informative and well worth the price of the book. I am a little surprised at the 4.8 star average rating for this book. Could be because the early listeners/reviewers are Tyrus fans and are skewing the reviews higher. I am a Tyrus fan but feel this book deserves three stars at best. I loved hearing that the American Dream, Dusty Rhodes was a mentor to Tyrus. I've been a fan of the Dream since the 70s. I enjoyed learning some things about Tyrus that I hadn't previously known. I admire him for the way he has managed his life. In my view, he usually makes the most sense among his colleagues when discussing issues on Gutfeld! I am bummed when he's not on the show. The production value of this audible book was not good. Near the end I heard a door shutting. Tyrus often rushed through the reading. Enough said. But I liked it was Tyrus who did the narration. This kind of book demands it. So you take the good with the bad. If you're a Tyrus fan, I would recommend this book.

Great Story to listen to from a great biographer

Brutally honest and hopes he gets his own show on Fox. He is one of main reasons I watch Gutfeld. Amazed at his drive, resiliency, and fortitude. Plus him reading it man it a great listen in just two days.

My respect has grown ten fold

I often tell my (now grown) children to be careful who they hold out as heros. For all the obvious reasons people are flawed and those in the public eye have agents and publicists to help paint a pretty picture. I must say I would be happy if one of them told me Tyrus is their hero. Like all of us he is flawed but he handles it with a grace that makes me proud to be a fan. Thank you for sharing your life story. I listened to it in one day and now I want to tell the world.

Great memoir, needs to slow down

Great that Tyrus wrote this. His narration is rushed. Emphasize points more with tone and slowing narration. Love you, Tyrus.

Worth your time to hear his story!

Having Tryus narrating the book made it much more impactful! Listening to the events that shaped his life and his journey to accountability let you understand his level of integrity and thoughtfulness. It will challenge how you may think about others.

Brutally Honest & Excellent

Raising yourself is no joke. How accomplished Tyrus is is a testament to his inner strength. He’s awesome on Fox on all platforms. Real and thought-provoking. I did wonder how his brother fared….and how the name Tyrus came about…and why he still Carrie’s his WWE belt. Confused about that. Loved the book.

Tyrus reading made it real

It was a very interesting listen - with the author, Tyrus, doing the reading, it was like he was there telling the story directly to the listener
