I almost thought you might have gone with Graham winning the belt as a means of having a loudmouth heel champ, but I guess I was wrong. Now what would be really exciting will be if you sign Hogan and team him with Graham; I think that'd make for a great young-and-old pairing, given all the similarities between them.

<strong>John Cornell:</strong> Gorilla called me. Told me that Crockett has declared hostile intent on us, Southwest, Central States, and AWA. Do you want to keep the trend that we been going on or should I move up the plans. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Vince McMahon:</strong> Call New Japan,Puerto Rico, Georgia, and Mid-South tell them we want to end our working relationships with them. We will see how they will act before we make the move. After that call Bobby, Terry, Paul, Sylvester, and Bob tell them I want them here in New York City. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>John Cornell:</strong> You think Crockett is pissed that we have Barry Windham and Curt Hennig on Written Contracts?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Vince McMahon:</strong> Knowing Crockett that probably what upset them. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>John Cornell:</strong> Alright I will see you at the show.</p>

<strong>Wrestling fans it seems the World Wrestling Federation has been making major moves this week. They have signed Hulk Hogan, Sgt. Slaughter, Bobby Heenan, Greg Valnetine, Roddy Piper, Paul Orndorff, Junkyard Dog, and Jesse Ventura. </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Some circles in the wrestling industry are claiming that the World Wrestling Federation is gearing to go National. WWF though is silent on the intentions of these new signings. It seems an war is heating up between the WWF and the rest of the Professional Wrestling world. </strong></p></div><p></p><p></p>
