Triple H Stripped of Intercontinental Championship!
This is straight from the WWF AOL site. At this point, I have no idea
who the new champion will be, or even who will be competing for it,
except that it will be an eight man tournament.


“On Thursday night’s Byte This – the official internet show of WWF.COM
– hostess Terri Filipetti, a woman who has seen many superstars come
and go in the World Wrestling Federation over the years, suggested
that Federation owner Vince McMahon was planning to strip Hunter
Hearst Helmsley of the Intercontinental Championship. Just moments
ago, WWF.COM received confirmation, via an inter-office E-mail from
the owner, that Triple H has indeed been bereft of his championship
status, with a tournament taking place this Monday on RAW IS WAR.

Apparently, McMahon was in a foul mood this morning. After all, the
past two weeks have been particularly harrowing for him. He was just
released from a recovery unit yesterday, where he was undergoing
treatment following separate attacks by Stone Cold Steve Austin and
Kane and the Undertaker on RAW is WAR.

WWF.COM has McMahon’s memorandum. We present it to you verbatim.


Effective immediately, Hunter Hearst Helmsley is no longer the
Intercontinental Champion. Mr. Helmsley, due to an injury that has
required too much time for rehabilitation, has not defended the
Intercontinental Belt within the 30-day allotted timeframe. Therefore,
I have had no recourse than to strip him of the championship, and put
it up for contention in a one-night tournament among the top
contenders on RAW IS WAR. This Monday, a new Intercontinental
Titleholder will be crowned.”
Below is a letter from Dana Hall, the estranged wife of Scott Hall.
This letter was sent to me by Jared Spinelli, about as good a source
as it gets. To receive his free newsletter, E-Mail him at:

Dana & Scott Hall are engaged in a bitter custody battle and that
should be kept in mind when reading her letter.

Dana Hall- Scott Hall's Ex-Wife Speaks Out
The Following was written by Dana Hall, Scott Hall's Ex-Wife.


WCW is helping Scott Hall destroy himself - does anybody care?

WCW recently stated on the Oct. 5 Nitro show that they "did not
condone Scott Hall's behavior, and that Scott Hall is a very sick man."

Although WCW states this, why are they allowing him to retain his
status (which he so sorely abuses) to clearly break policies (stated
as a breach of contract), and taking every opportunity to exploit and
humiliate his very real sickness, as "entertainment"? My question to
them is "What are they going to do about it?"

Are they going to get him the serious help he needs?

If this is just a storyline and "not real", then how can they explain
Scott's recent arrest, and the very public displays of intoxication
other than in front of the camera?

Although "recent" events on the show have been staged, the storyline
they are portraying is in fact the terrible truth. Scott has had an
ongoing addiction problem for 20 years, resulting in the destruction
of his marriage and family. Is this entertainment? Scott's stumbling
around and vomiting on stage may be "fake", but what he is doing in
"real" life is the same thing. Wrestling has just become "real" in the
case of Scott Hall.

Scott may be "acting" out his addiction problem now on TV, but there
have been many times in the past that he was truly under the influence
and WCW allowed him to perform. This storyline is just a cover-up for
their irresponsibility’s and their failed attempts to try to
rehabilitate Scott. Now they have decided to exploit his very real
problem with his addiction to drugs and alcohol as a means of
entertainment to the fans for profit and ratings, only to stand by and
watch him destroy himself.

These stagings of a matter so serious are deplorable, disgusting and
inexcusable. The wrestling industry is so twisted and sick, and
clearly without conscience. It does not need to be this way. WCW has
overstepped the line in this case, as far as I am concerned.

This is not entertainment. This is not funny anymore. The storyline
needs to come to a conclusion. This man has two young children, who
need him to get 100% well. They are being terribly affected by their
fathers' behavior as well as the WCW's enabling and exploitation of it.

His children and family members (with whom he chooses to have no
relationship with) do not deserve this pain and embarrassment for the
public's "entertainment". Scott is obviously not rehabilitated. A
40-yr old man "keying a limo" is a definite "cry for help". Now he has
added a felony to his list of on-going unacceptable, disturbing
incidents. Scott has obviously lost all judgement, dignity and sense
of what's right, and WCW has taken advantage of that.

This can no longer be denied or ignored.

What kind of message is this display of something so serious sending
to children whether it be staged or not??? Doesn't Scott have a
responsibility as a public personality and role model to behave in a
decent manner? He is clearly abusing his status, intimidating and
disrespecting people, breaking laws, hurting his family...and WCW is
allowing this.

WCW clearly has had several reasons to fire him, but instead they made
a meager attempt to try to rehabilitate him, and it quite clearly did
not work, so they are just using him for as long as they can. It is
inevitable that as long as Scott continues on this path, he will
ultimately destroy himself. Is this what the fans want to see?

Scott needs to be urged in any way possible, by everyone, to turn his
life around. He has already lost so much. It is very sad, especially
to his children who need this man to be well, to be a father to them.
He has lost so much already. I cannot, as the only responsible and fit
parent they have, allow his children in his presence unsupervised
under the circumstances. Can you imagine how hard it is for them to
understand this mess and why their dad chooses to be sick, and not get
well, for himself and for them? They need and deserve a "well" father
- not a dad who's a wrestler. Scott will never be able to get well as
long as he is a "wrestler," and exposed to all its sickness. It has
fed his addiction and allowed it to grow for years, and now they are
feeding off it. This is wrong any way you look at it.

I am begging everyone on behalf of his children, to help get Scott to
a place where he can see this, and put himself in God's hands and find
a way out of this living hell he has created for himself - a hell that
the wrestling industry has greatly contributed to through the years
and now chooses to exploit. This cannot be allowed to continue. My
children and I have no peace in our lives as long as Scott remains
sick and is enabled.

Addictions and wrestling have destroyed our marriage and our family,
and are continuing to destroy my children's future, and their father -
Scott Hall.

Something can, and needs to be done by the people who hold power in
this situation and those who claim to be his friends - for the sake of
his children.

Please speak out, as I feel in my heart it is the right thing to do.

Dana Hall.

I am a Canadian and also a huge ECW fan. I am disappointed in the
fact that I can not get ECW up here and I'm sure all the other ECW
fans in Canada are too. But, there is a chance that we can change
this. I would like to ask all ECW fans in Canada to email TSN at telling them politely that they would like
to see ECW on their station. Maybe if we send enough emails, TSN
would put ECW into their programming schedule. Below is a letter that I have already sent to TSN.
Dear Sir/Madam,
I don't understand why you don't carry ECW. I know that you're FAQ
says that it is too violent, but compared to the WWF or WCW, its
really not all that bad. I agree that it should not be viewed by
younger children, but that is no reason to deprive all of the
Canadian ECW fans that have to resort to getting someone in the USA to tape off the show for them or to watch it on the internet.

Neither of these methods is as effective as watching it on TSN. A good time to put ECW on your station would be late at night. its only an hour long program, so its not all that hard to fit in. A lot of times in the early mornings, you play "The World's Strongest Man" competitions but you could fill that slot with ECW. An ideal time for it would be either 1 a.m. or 4 a.m. EST. on Friday or Saturday nights.

I'm sure that even if you run a trial period, where you play only a
few weeks of ECW to see how the fans react, you would get good
responses. There are a lot of people in Canada that would love to
watch ECW and I'm sure they would watch it on TSN. I think that it
would be a great ratings move because as you know, wrestling is among your top rated programs every week.  Please consider putting ECW into your programming schedule for all the ECW fans in Canada.
Thank you

I think WWF should use the talents of Jason Sensation a little more.
I mean he was the one who started the nugget chants for Owen Hart. He should be used once a show, during a dull match. This does two things, keeps the viewers watching during these dull matches and it makes the dull wrestlers get over with the fans. It also would make Jason a star.


Jason Sensation should come out one Raw and do his best impression of the WCW play-by-play guys. Jason should say, in his best Mike Tenay voice, something stupid about the Light Heavyweights. Like
what the name of Taka Michinuku's mother'shairstylist is. Than in his best Tony Schavonie voice should say "The other' shows main event is only ten seconds, but my shows main event is a bunch of 40 year old has beens in a chess match. Then Jason Sensation should say in his best Larry Zybyszco voice, "I would rather be playing on the Senior PGA tour than be here in this stupid company."  Jason Sensation would be on the lower WWF shows like Livewire or Superstars.

Lethal Injection
By: Ryan Oaks (Venom)
Any questions or comments are only to be sent to Warriorism
This edition of Lethal Injection will be directed at the WWF.
Okay, look people, there were some misunderstandings from my last
article. It was about how WCW is in my opinion the Worlds Crappiest
Wrestling. Well yes, I do believe that is true and you may not but I
don't care because you didn't write it. The misconception that I am
biased in favor of the WWF is totally false. I have received many
responses and all positive, except for one of them, but that was half positive and half of it was disagreeing with me. That’s fine, though, because he brings up some valid points and he has his own opinion and I love to see that.  Therefore, to clear up any misconceptions that I think the WWF is flawless I am writing this article about the WWF, and the mistakes it has made in my
opinion. Of course it will not be as long as the WCW column, but
that's my point.

WWF has made a lot less stupid moves than WCW has. First lets start
off with Mankind, Cactus Jack, and Dude Love. These are all the
personalities that Mick Foley plays in his WWF role. This man is way
under rated and I am getting really pissed at the people that boo him and say that he sucks etc. These people that say these
things are obviously not true wrestling fans. Mick Foley is one of
the best members that WWF could hope to have on their roster. How do
they treat him?? They send him out week after week and have him job
to Shamrock, or lose a cage match after he had it won. These type of
things are pissing me off because Mick is a great talent that the WWF should be proud to have on their list. Instead they have him come out and they let Shamrock make him look like a fool. I'll tell you something, I have seen the hardcore Cactus Jack matches and I know for a damn fact that he could take on anyone in the WWF, including Stone Cold.  Now they are having Shamrock beat him.

This brings me to my next point. Shamrock comes out every week and
first he will be having a normal match and then when he is losing he
"goes nuts".  I have tremendous respect for Shamrock and I think he
is a great talent in wrestling. He made the transition very well from Ultimate Fighting to the WWF, which is more than I can say for Dan Severn.  Anyway, this thing with Ken freaking out is a very stupid thing.  He didn't get that pissed in his UFC matches, so why would he now?  They need to make him into something more than a maniac and hopefully we will see this as soon as he gets into his heel gimmick comfortably. This man would be a great talent if the WWF uses him the way he can be used best.

Another thing I am getting tired of is the quality of matches. This
is directed at wrestling as a sport, no federations in particular. I
watch both Raw and Nitro and I see almost all the matches are being
interfered in unless it’s a jobber match and I even see it sometimes in those. I am sick and tired of seeing Chyna cause Triple H to win. Triple H has talent so let him do it himself. If a wrestler needs someone to cause him to win he should not be a wrestler and that's it. I see Hogan come out for a match and sometimes the match won’t even get underway, it is just a big gang attacking the opponent. Not singling out the NWO in particular but all the little factions in wrestling.

Also, I am not a big fan of DX, but in my opinion, this was a wonderful idea the WWF came up with. It started out with HBK and Triple H. Then of course the NAO got involved. Then WWF realized that Michaels was funny but he just didn't belong in DX because DX is a thing with younger upcoming wrestlers. Ever since X-Pac came and Triple H took over I have seen a major improvement in both of these superstars. Triple H is on his way to being the main event at the WWF shows. Right now he is toying with the IC title and soon, very soon he will be wearing the World Title around his waist. I think that after this SCSA, Undertaker, McMahon triangle is over that The Rock and Triple H will be the 2 main superstars for the WWF.


As for X-Pac, he is messing around with the European title picture and might stay in there. I personally would like to see X-Pac fighting for the Light Heavyweight Title so that that division could get started into being a regularly defended title. I want X-Pac to take that title from Taka Michinoku, since Taka is too busy to defend it due to his thing with Kaintai.  Another suggestion would be for X-Pac to compete for the IC Title.

There, I didn’t criticize too much but I gave my opinions and that’s it.  I told you all what I thought was wrong with the WWF and then I gave you my opinions on the WWF performers. This is just my take on the whole deal. I of course expect criticism and welcome it. Please direct all
