The Name on the Contract Does Say McMahon!

When Turner sold wrestling to the Devil's Son

 

"In the old days, there were wrestling fiefdoms all over the country, each with its own little lord in charge. Each little lord respected the rights of his neighboring little lord. No takeovers or raids were allowed. There were maybe 30 of these tiny kingdoms in the U.S. and if I hadn't bought out my dad, there would still be 30 of them, fragmented and struggling. I, of course, had no allegiance to those little lords." - Vince McMahon, 1991

 

"Tonight the Monday Night Wars are over, the victor of the Monday Wars are clear, it's that man." - Paul Heyman, 2001 when it looked like Vince had bought WCW.

 

"WCW is buried, it is going on the shelf and it's going nowhere." - Vince McMahon, 2001

 

"The deal is finalized, and the name on the contract does say McMahon... However, it reads Shane McMahon. I now own WCW!" - Shane McMahon, 2001

NOTES: Prediction Contest will run until Starrcade. So this is strictly the WCW you would see on TV from May 2001-onward. I will do press releases and WON style stuff, but no narrative really. It's owned by Shane/Titan Sports/WWF, but not as a development. I have a working agreement with the WWF for now, we'll see how that develops. It also is going to give me some freedom with some gimmicks.

While Lawler is currently not signed with the WWF due to some legal issues, it was expected he would be brought back by the end of the year when they cleared up. Stamford might see this as a way to get Lawler on TV and under contract without harming their main brand. Eric Bischoff is said to be handling these contracts, as talks had begun before the WWF takeover.

If this deal isn't already final, expect The Big Bang to be a one and done type of show and an invasion angle to occur.</div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

A confirmed roster has not yet hit the dirt sheets, but based on the card for Big Bang, it doesn't look like many are sticking around for the WCW/WWF. Some, like Goldberg, announced his intentions to sit out his Time Warner contract (as did Hogan and Nash). Others, such as Luger, were willing to continue like Sting and Flair, but there seems to be some bad blood between the McMahons and Luger still.</div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

<p>Very excited to see you back in the WCW 2001 mix again, Briskout!</p><p> </p><p>

Booker T - <em>While Flair is definitely a credible challenger, Booker having just won the title gives credence to him keeping it.</em></p><p>

Scott Steiner - <em>Steiner, meanwhile, is your top heel right now. Use him well.</em></p><p>

Jeff Jarrett - <em>Of the three names you listed (which I did take note that they are all heels) Jeff is probably the biggest of the bunch. He goes over to allow him a nice program right away.</em></p><p>

Chavo Guerrero Jr - <em>I think we will end up with at least one title change, if not two, otherwise it's more "business as usual" instead of a "big bang" isn't it?</em></p><p>

??? - <em>Tough to go against mystery opponents, I can't wait to see who it is you have lined up here.</em></p><p>

Laree, Jazz, and Daffney - <em>Daff and Jazz have to be JUST slightly more over than the rest, and I give them the duke based on that... and also I love me some Daffney, so just give her the title already!</em> <img alt=":)" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/smile.png.142cfa0a1cd2925c0463c1d00f499df2.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></p>

They would’ve NEVER pulled Rey’s mask off of him. Should be interesting to see what happens, as in lucha libre it is a sin to go back to the mask. But Rey may be able to see the dollar signs more than the respect of some 100 year old Mexicans…</span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> With that said, this is still a great match. While the Cruiserweight division has dwindled over the past year or so, as the likes of the Juice and Psychosis have moved on, Chavo and Rey (and now Helms) are cornerstones of the division and are part of it’s big success. They are exciting, they move the pace and that lucha libre style sells. It is a big opposition of WCW and WWF. The Light Heavyweight division, at one point, was unique. It was American style lightweight action. Now it is simply another belt, but when Scott Putski, TAKA and Brian Christopher were at each other’s throats, it was amazing. This is where WCW shines though. This isn’t WCW-lite, this is something different for audiences to watch and they get fast paced action from bell to bell. Helms plays the face here, Chavo is the heel and Rey? Rey is beloved by the fans, but is very fluid in this match as he is torn to turn on longtime friend Chavo and youngster Helms, which plays quite the dynamic in the match.</span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> Helms is really able to show off in this match, which is important to note as well. I would wager all WWF fans know Misterio Jr. and know of Chavo (even if it’s just by association of Eddy). But for Helms, who came in under 3 Count and under the past year of Russo-ian nonsense, many might not know him from a plant. And for him to show his high-paced offense as on par with Chavo and Rey Jr. was great. In fact, Helms hit the Vertebreaker (his finisher!) However, Helms wouldn’t pick up the win as Chavo Jr. tossed him over the top rope as soon as he hit the Vertebreaker on Rey Jr. and and pinned Rey himself for the three count.</span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><strong>Chavo Guerrero Jr. d.

To not have these four men involved would do an injustice to WCW and both Sting and Steiner can still perform and perform quite well.

Shane says he’d love to announce the mystery opponents, but he didn’t bring them to WCW. Sanders did. Sanders gets the microphone and puts over his new clients as the future of WCW, and a bit of an odd couple.

The younger Palumbo & O’Haire are both solid rookies who despite just entering the business have really shown themselves to be that all-around prototype I think both companies want. RVD & Sabu, if you haven’t seen them yet, are just high flying stars. For guys who are lighter heavyweights, they can move and move quick. It’s shown in this as in a rarity it isn’t the face-in-peril but almost a heel-in-peril situation (if you can call Palumbo & O’Haire heels) as Palumbo can’t keep up with the quick tags and quick moves of RVD and Sabu. Joey Styles takes the lead in this match, calling each move with more and more excitement.</span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> However, Palumbo can’t stay down and Rob Van Dam tries to come off the top rope with a flying crossbody and Palumbo catches him and connects with a powerslam. O’Haire with the hot tag that clears the ring quickly but again, the fast pace action of RVD and Sabu keep O’Haire busy. O’Haire however is able to keep up a bit, and the ring isn’t cut in half as he’s able to tag to Palumbo after RVD and Sabu give him some breath. Palumbo is like a freight train now.</span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> However, in all of this Mike Sanders distracts Palumbo. With Palumbo and referee Charles Robinson distracted, Sabu enters the ring and clips Palumbo with a chair. While Robinson doesn’t notice, he does turn in time to see Sabu hit the Arabian Facebuster with the chair! Immediately he calls for the DQ as Sanders, RVD and Sabu all look shocked!

Lawler, upon seeing Jazz remarked about how he didn’t realize there could be women wrestlers as ugly as her, which Styles retorted with a “and she can fold you in half like a pretzel and make you tap King.” This is an 8 minute match, which is 4X the length of the women’s title match at WrestleMania, but this has 3 times the women so… Do the math? Either way, Styles & Tenay remind Lawler these aren’t divas, these are women wrestlers and there is a bit of a contrast between these six women and WWF’s best. These aren’t models. With that said, there is some room to improve before we start calling what WCW presents as the best women’s wrestling in the world. It seems Stamford is attempting to create a serious women’s division in WCW, and with no risk of failure (compared to WWF at least, where the fans expect half naked models) it might work. Some info on each woman quickly. The 3 best known: Jazz is from ECW, Daffney has been in WCW as a valet up until February but it seems the promotion brought her back for name value. Speaking of name value: Neidhart is the daughter of Jim Neidhart. The other 3: Laree is a valet on the indy scene but was trained by Dory Funk, Kim is better known as La Felina on the Canadian independent scene and Phoenix was trained by and is married to Joey Carolan of the all nighters. Jazz is the veteran, while Phoenix and Kim have both been wrestling for less than 6 months. For all six women this is a huge opportunity.</span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> Whether WCW runs with a women’s promotion or not will depend.

This is what WCW has to offer in terms of story at least with Flair and Booker and while Flair clearly can’t broadway like he used to, when used properly he can still be and still feels like a main eventer. This, for many, is the most important thing to consider in the long run for Flair and Sting. The two definitely (Flair DEFINITELY) are in the twilights of their careers. They don’t need to keep going much longer, but a final main event run can really be run correctly with them going out looking at the lights IF WCW protects them and pairs them with the right guys. Sting and Steiner earlier was an example of that and Booker and Flair here is another. Booker knows when he needs to do the bulk of the work and changes his style. This is a sloppy brawl with some restholds. Flair works the shoulder, he works the legs. Booker sells and scurries. He takes chops, he gives them. Booker isn’t working at his best pace or rate but in a match with someone like Flair, he doesn’t need to or should. The storytelling is all that needs to take place here, and it does.</span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> Booker and Flair tell the story of Flair, whether or not he can do it one more time at his age and Booker, who is clearly suffering from an injury. For Booker, this means trying to push past his injury to win with the crowd behind him. For Flair, it means attempting to prove The Big Bang is just another genesis of another Ric Flair era.</span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> “The nearly 30 year pro is putting on a clinic tonight gentlemen!”</span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> Fast forward to the finish: it’s Flair and Booker exchanging chops in the ring when Booker gets the best of Flair causing Flair to retreat to the outside. Booker tries to follow, but Nick Patrick’s attempt to stop him at the ropes is enough for Flair to grab Booker’s arm and yank on it. Booker sells it and Patrick goes into the ring to check on it as Flair gets back into the ring. Booker pushes Patrick away and gets up and Flair immediately grabs him sending him shoulder first through the turnbuckles into the post. Flair then manages to hit the school boy, holding the tights for the three count.</span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> “SEVENTEEN TIME WORLD CHAMPION!”</span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> The crowd is both in awe and stunned.

No one guessed Flair winning, which was set up before you guys started picking. I didn't expect anyone to guess him winning either. I was surprised at the mix turnout and my obvious drops of hints in the Newsletter about at least the mystery men. I didn't expect anyone to guess Rhodes either. Should be fun to see what happens next month as you all follow along on my Main Event posts.</p><p> </p><p>

Beejus - Glad to be back in the mix. I need to catch up to reading yours and TFC's! Good logic in your picks, especially the women's match. They won based on... overness and that's it. Lol.</p>

I love how within just two shows, you have already forged your own path in the "sea" of 2001 WCW diaries! Giving "Naitch" that illustrious 17th championship is nice to see for a change rather than it just trading between Booker and Steiner as most players seem to do in the opening stages, and is a breath of fresh air. I also never would have imagined Goldust, but given WCW is being played as a WWF subsidiary, it makes complete sense. It also makes me wonder who else may be jumping ship or at least swapping into a new/old role that they played in the WWF previously. Maybe just leave Dean Douglas behind, at least :p

As for Nitro, I think my favorite part has to be Bobby Heenan paired with Steve Corino. That should give you a lot for both to do.

<p>[Yes, as I thought about what to do, I thought the best choice (while not in game) would be Flair. Plus the idea of his 17th title was nice. Goldust is one of my favorite characters and Dustin's best. I am looking forward to bringing in some others perhaps when needed. Starrcade, Taker vs. Sting perhaps? We'll see. As for Corino & Heenan, I advance it some here.]</p><p> </p><p> </p><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="Im9jaw1.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/Im9jaw1.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><strong>WCW The Main Event</strong></span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><strong> Saturday Week 3, May, 2001</strong></span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> Hard Rock Cafe, Las Vegas, NV</span></div></div></div></div></div><p></p><p></p><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="45773" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div><div style="text-align:right;"><img alt="TnbU4Xr.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/TnbU4Xr.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><img alt="yBEd5hT.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/yBEd5hT.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></div><p></p><p></p><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><strong>The hottest hour in professional wrestling, WCW's The Main Event begins with the United States Champion, Goldust in the ring with Torrie Wilson.</strong></span></div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> Goldust has the belt around his waist as he traces the design on the belt, almost seductively.

Flair already knows about short title reigns, I think his 16th was actually only for a day? <img alt=":p" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/tongue.png.ceb643b2956793497cef30b0e944be28.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /> But WCW vs. NWA champion is a good angle so I look forward to the match. Something else I forgot to mention is Mike Sanders with Sabu and RVD. It strangely works (at least for now) because those two do tend to need an annoying mouthpiece, and at least Mike doesn't have a whistle.

<p>[Yes Sanders works for now is the perfect statement. I wanted Fonsie, but forgot to sign him before the Big Bang. When I looked over my roster, I saw Mike Sanders was sitting around. The guy is pretty useless, but fits that manager of someone way more talented role. I am excited . As for NWA/WCW champion vs champion, I loved the idea of Flair coming in back in '91/'92 and challenging for the title and thought this would be a nice homage to it.

With that said, this is a fast paced, hot action from the getgo. Storm is the technician in arms while Wright uses the European brawling style, but the other four men are bouncing off the ropes and the cameras are barely able to keep up with it. It looks as if each man will have a chance to win at any time as the 12 minute match packs more action than most of the rest of the line up can.

Joey Styles uses this as an opportunity to hype Corino as methodical and a 2X world champion, one of ECW's last world champions and the current NWA champ. Anyways, this match tells the story of the potential main event of GAB as Scott is set to take on Ric, per Mike Tenay, despite what Steve Corino may think.

Got to love when an angle brings in questions. </div></div></div></div><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>Did Scott Steiner really get injured on last week's The Main Event?</strong></div></div></div></div><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> is probably the #1 question. As this was the most viewed episode The Main Event yet (drawing over a 1.6 this week) it seems WCW is choosing the best time to create some doubt. Of course, with </div></div></div></div><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>Sting supposedly evaluating his options of staying with WCW, joining WWF or retiring</strong></div></div></div></div><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">, it wouldn't make sense to drop one of its top stars for storyline reasons... So, the answer is yes. During the main event of The Main Event, Scott Steiner was legitimately injured. Joey Styles, who was congratulated backstage by Tony Schiavone for putting over the injury, correctly called a broken ankle. Steiner slipped as he attempted to change momentum so he would not injure Booker T who was readjusting himself. Steiner is going to be out for two months, which leaves the proposed main event of Great American Bash on the shelf now.</div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Thankfully, WCW has a backup plan in </div></div></div></div><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>Steve Corino.</strong></div></div></div></div><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> While the NWA still hasn't signed on for a title vs title match, and with good reason I suppose (although the NWA belt is practically worthless), Corino could easily step in as Flair's challenger for the GAB. Booker T is still without a partner however, but WCW has two weeks to still give their top face an opponent.</div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

This feeling is spreading into WCW which is reaping the benefits of a well run product. This is compared to WCW's The Big Bang 75% thumbs up rating.</div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

RAW, SmackDown, Heat and WCW's The Main Event take up 6 hours weekly of television currently. With the separation of WCW and the WWF, it seems that those 6 hours are becoming more and more specifically targeted. Raw and SmackDown is being marketed as sports entertainment while The Main Event is being marketed as wrestling. Whether this pays off in the long run or not remains to be seen. Heat is rumored to be transferred over to WCW, although Viacom officials are unsure as Heat easily outperforms the Main Event, especially on PPV nights. If Viacom is unsure of this, Stamford is hoping to add an hour of WCW programming on Sunday nights on MTV2 which launched earlier this year or VH1.</div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"></span></span></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

The women are improving from last week, perhaps it's because both teams seemed to really enjoy teaming together. One of the issues with the division is there is no characters. You have two blondes, an African American, a girl who's been in porn and an Asian woman. That's their characters. Sure, the announce team promotes Neidhart as the daughter of Jim the Anvil but... That's really it. I think for the division to stand, it needs to develop some of the characters. With that said, this match doesn't do that. Instead we get a tag match with no fans invested with Beth Phoenix getting the victory.</span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><strong>Phoenix & Neidhart d.

Because unlike Space Mountain, Freakzilla is state of the art and ready to go ALL NIGHT LONG, HOLLA IF YA HEAR ME!"</strong></span></div></div></div></div></div></blockquote><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="lypFUwI.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/lypFUwI.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><strong>"Kanyon returns in 2 weeks!"</strong></span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><img alt="KCHD9jT.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/KCHD9jT.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> vs. </span></div></div></div></div><img alt="lCGDeY6.jpg" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/lCGDeY6.jpg" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><strong>Daffney vs. Gail Kim</strong></span></div></div></div></div></div><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="45773" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"></blockquote><p></p><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> This match is completely overshadowed by the return of Kanyon who Mike Tenay hypes the entire time.

Tenay makes a comment that if Heenan were able to sign Goldust before tomorrow night, he could have all the champions under one banner, but doubts it as Goldust clearly is doing his own thing in this match. The challengers, unlike the champions, don't seem to have any built in trust (outside of the tag team of RVD & Sabu) and Styles wonders if this will lead to their downfall. It does. As each man isn't able to be as fluid as the heels, the faces end up losing track of who's legal which is typical in this cluster type of match, with tags getting mixed and eventually an all out brawl to finish it where each man gets to hit their finishers, with Booker being the first to eat a finisher (due to Flair not being in the match) and Corino hitting Old School Expulsion on Wright after Chavo Jr. eats a Superkick. Corino's OSE is enough to win, as the Heenan Family get in the ring.</span></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"> </span></div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="font-family:'Century Gothic';"><strong>The Heenan Family & Goldust d.

<p>So I guess I predict for both instances? It's a little smaller card than I'm used to for a big event, but that just means all the matches should have plenty of time to develop, and that's a good thing.</p><p> </p><p>

Ric Flair - <em>Flair retains the title despite not really needing it for his feud with the Heenan Family.</em></p><p>

Booker T - <em>If this match happens, I don't see Booker walking out with the gold, but Flair would likely do a run-in that nets Booker a win. Corino has a LONG way to go before he can grab a victory over Booker without severely upsetting him backstage.</em></p><p>

Goldust - <em>Should be a very good match, as both Dustin and Page can still go in the ring.</em></p><p>

Chavo Guerrero Jr - <em>I just can't really see Alex getting a big title win in 2001. 1994-5, sure, but 2001 feels like a stretch, even though he is really young yet.</em></p><p>

Palumbo and O'Haire - <em>While I was enjoying RVD and Sabu being paired with Sanders, Palumbo and O'Haire with Bobby Heenan trumps that.</em></p><p>

Jeff Jarrett - <em>I like both of them, but Jeff has a bigger story arc he can run with as opposed to Shane just stepping into this match.</em></p>
