Dynamite Kid was incredibly unprofessional and WCW has moved on.</p><p> -WCW has reached agreements with TNT UK and TV Azteca at last to broadcast events going forward. This was largely influenced by the success of both Battlestars this month and Bash at the Beach the month prior. Getting access to these international markets was a major point of emphasis for WCW management.</p><p> -The Hulk Hogan vs Giant Haystacks match was incredibly well received. Haystacks and Hogan worked well together in the ring and Haystacks had no problem letting Hogan get his spots in. A match that was MUCH better than expected.</p><p> -Dave "Fit" Finlay put in some good work for WCW over the past few weeks. His contract was only short term and has expired, but WCW officials are said to be open to a return for the Irish star in the future.</p><p> -WCW has released Bill Dundee and Rip Rogers from their contracts with WCW. Dundee was working as Sir William, but management felt that he was not clicking with Steven Regal on air.</p><p> -Hector Guerrero's stint with WCW was just a one-night deal.</p><p> -Finally, WCW's World in Japan show has been delayed to September due to scheduling conflicts. </p><p> </p><p> <strong>Rumor Mill</strong></p><p> -WCW management is VERY high on Doom. The team is getting solid reactions from the audience and the early returns on their work has shown that Butch Reed still has a lot left to offer. </p><p> -Randy Savage had some favorable things to say about WCW in a recent magazine article. Is Savage greasing the wheels for a jump to WCW?</p><p> -Terry Funk is very high on Bobby Walker and there are rumors that he is really pushing WCW hard to give the young man a run.</p><p> -Is Gary Hart bringing back The Great Muta? Kabuki? No one is sure, but needless to say his appearance has stirred things up. </p><p> -It sounds like a foregone conclusion that Arn Anderson will return to WCW at Clash of the Champions. </p><p> -Don't expect to see Hulk Hogan wrestle at the September pay-per-view. Apparently he has some tv episodes to film.</p><p> -WCW is looking to bring in some veteran hands to fill out the roster with some fresh talent, particularly in the tag team scene.</p> Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
