Being a wrestler in the biz..... I heard that Cornette got fired and
is now on his way back to Tennessee. He was the scout for WWF as well as the person in charge of the EXTRAS....... or jobbers. Some wrestling
friends of mine that have done some work for him told me about this.
The reason for firing Jim..... To make room for Shane McMahon. Pity, Jim was one of the greats.

I was at ECW, at the Elks Lodge (Queens, NY) the other night. Sandman
was also there and responded to the crowds chants of "You sold out!"
He said "If I f*cking sold out, then what the f*ck am I doing here?"
Whether it was a work or not, the crowd went nuts! Let's all hope
that Sandman stays in the Federation in which he shines, ECW!

I hope you and other wrestling fans can look at the state of wrestling
today and honestly feel that they enjoy this better that days of old.
I am referring to the NWA the days when the Horsemen ruled and TV
shows weren't filled with interview after interview. I remember
matches with Flair and Steamboat. And recall they had no evil
brothers or six packs or three alter egos. These men put on shows and
matches that lasted one hour long.


Today I get treated to three minutes of some superstar jobbing to Goldberg. Then I look at ECW and I fall in love with this Federation all over again. ECW is where feuds start over belts and who is getting the push. If you want the belt then earn it. ECW does not waste talent at all. They use their limited roster to its fullest except for Kronus. I can't but help but wonder how long it will be before he joins up with Saturn. God knows WCW needs some life for its tag belts.

I can't but help and look at the WWF and laugh at loud. The WWF has
the funniest skits ever. But I want to see a wrestling match. I am sick and tired of guys not getting shots because of no mic skills. Austin will hold the belt as long as HBK is on the shelf. Fans are tired of the Undertaker since his gimmick is old and his character is more powerful than he is. Mark Callaway is a fine wrestler but the Undertaker needs to die.


Kane is a Dentist we all know but does he have any wrestling
talent at all? Choke slam and piledriver are his mat skills. I look
at Austin and remember the guy who at one time called himself the
Ringmaster but no more since he punches and kicks and gives the finger
and what happened to his skills we all know he knows the moves but the
WWF would rather he brawl.


ECW gets much trash for its brawls but I see more wrestling in that fed than anywhere else. I watch Taz and Sabu and Rob Van Dam and I get excited because they show me something new every week. Shane Douglas is a fine wrestler in every Federation he has been in. So now that I have vented my anger at the wrestling world I hope they didn't fall on deaf ears

I have read many letters that people send in complaining about the new
controversial "adult" angle of the WWF. One popular argument is that
they are going to lose their younger audiences. Now, I am 15 years old
and I do alot of babysitting and things of that nature. What the WWF
is doing now, with Sable taking off her clothes, Austin throwing back
a couple cold ones, a porn star wrestler you get the idea, children
find this entertaining.


Whenever I babysit a kid that happens to be a wrestling fan, I talk to him/her about the adult angles of the WWF and kids love it. Some of Steve Austins biggest fans are 5 year old kids.  I went to Raw on July 27 when it was at the Pond, there was a kid no older than 8 sitting in front of me, he had a sign that said "Take it off Sable" on one side and the other side said "Drink one for me Steve". Now whether you or I think this is right it is happening. Kids love seeing Sable walking around half naked and some of the other stuff that the WWF does. Kids are alot more enlightened about sex and drugs and violence in the nineties than the older generations were when they were kids.


Second of all, people say that they themselves are offended
by some of the angles and storylines. To that I only have one
response, DON'T WATCH IT, TURN IT OFF. Nobody is sitting there with a
gun to your head making you watch DX moon the crowd or Steve Austin
drinkin' his Steveweisers. It is obvious that the WWF has a lot
greater following since they went to this "hardcore" angle. So if you
don't like it, switch over to WCW where you can see Hogan say butt
instead of ass, and Bischoff is to scared of Turner to try anything
new and on the EDGE. Those are my opinions, E-mail me your responses
and what you think.

Personally I don't really care about people like Hogan and Kevin Nash.
All they do is talk, talk, talk. Rey Mysterio, Chavo Guerrero, Juvi,
and many other wrestlers aren't getting the attention they deserve.
Most wrestling is fake and for these wrestlers to pull off these
moves, fake or not, is amazing. Many people boo and hiss them, but I
enjoy their wrestling very much. Rey Mysterio is a 5' 3" ball of
strength, Juvi and his "Never Surrender" attitude is amazing. I
believe these wrestler's deserve A LOT more attention and respect.

That article about Mick Foley was phenomenal! That was worthy enough
of being read on RAW. Whatever ego he has, he is still the greatest hard-core maniac.  Flying off that cell onto the table at KOTR, crashing through the cell and onto the ring, and getting chokeslammed onto thousands of tacks, and STILL interfering in the next match!! That deserves an award in my book.

Vince McMahon shouldn't treat Foley this way. He is one of the
greatest ever! I think he should screw Kane and team with the
Oddities. He and Austin are getting caught in the center of the
collusion between Undertaker and Kane, and I wouldn't mind seeing
Taker & Kane vs. Austin & Foley at Survivor Series, that'd be a hell
of a match.
