in a physical
Austin. These two
crowd favorites gave them
plenty to cheer
about. As the match entered the 20th minute,

Goldberg vs. #11 Ric Flair.................
Prior to the
match, a savvy Ric flair announces that only MONGO
ringside and the rest of the Horsemen will remain
Goldberg walks to the ring with his normal security,
he quickly realizes that the
guards are none
other than Benoit, Malenko and Anderson. The trio
savage beating upon Goldberg just as he is ready to
arena. Goldberg enters the ring battered and
befuddled. Flair gets over again. As the match gets
underway, it is
obvious that despite the beating backstage, Goldberg
is far too
strong for Flair.
He makes quick work of
the "Nature Boy"
as he delivers
a pair of SPEARS. Preparing for the JACKHAMMER,
gives Flair one last hope as he enters the ring with
a chair. Unfortunately,
the inept Mongo hits Flair with the chair instead.
again lifts Flair high in the air for the JACKHAMMER
win, when suddenly Triple H flies to the ring for
the save. Angered
because of his
close loss to Goldberg in the 1st round, Triple H
blast to Goldberg's knee with a chair. With the
crowd in a frenzy,
to roll Goldberg into the FIGURE FOUR LEGLOCK and
get him to submit
for his first
loss. WHOOOOOO!!!! What an upset!!!!!
charge the ring
and proceed to beat the crap out of the worthless
Mongo and in a
gesture of appreciation, invite Triple H to join the
4 Horsemen. Good riddance Mongo!!!!!

Hayashi. Awful. Onno's another guy who is given way

I would just
like to add my two cents on Bam Bam Bigelow's
sign with the
WCW. Now, I realize that Bam Bam wasn't the most
popular or most
talented wrestler in the ECW but I do know that
time I decided
to stay up to 2:00 am and watch the show, "the Beast
from the East"
played a major role. In my "humble" opinion, the WCW
is a career
wrecking crew. They just sign ya', then ruin ya'.
I read in this
newsletter that it would be interesting if he went

I fully respect
that guy for having his opinion, there are good and
bad bits of
every fed - personally I dislike WCW relative to WWF
however to make
such a closed comment that WWF only appeals to
their rebellious stage is a mistake.
its fine to say
something like that but don't say that rebellious

think the more
mature viewers watch WCW, you are obviously the most

I have been a
wrestling fan for upwards of 10 years now. Back in
day my only
exposure was to WWF, and I watched it a bunch. I
Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior, the Villains
Andre the Giant
and Rick Rude, and the cool stories they all had
behind them. I
watched Bret Hart go from a tag team loser to WWF
champ. I saw
the debut of the Undertaker, an amazing athlete for
his size. And I
loved every second of it. I picked up the occasional
issue of PWI...
so I knew of the Four Horsemen, Terry Funk, etc...
but when they were on
TV... I was
kind of apathetic. They didn't have the same zing as
A few years
later, something caught my eye... Hulk Hogan was
NOT in the WWF! I was shocked as hell to find he and
Randy Savage in
this "WCW". But still, I thought it was cool...
Steve Austin, Flyin' Brian Pillman, Arn Anderson,
Ric Flair, the
Harlem Heat... these guys were awesome! Forget about
the 1-2-3 Kid
and Jeff Jarrett... I was really digging WCW. But
few months it
got to repetitive for me, so I switched it off.
About a year or
so later, I saw another shocking move: Diesel and

Finally I made
my decision: It was the WWF for me. I got sick of
before anyone else did, and I was especially into
with the Hart Foundation. I was then introduced to
community on the internet, and in turn, became a
fan. I couldn't
believe that wrestlers cut themselves to bleed...
and Bret Hart really hated each other... or that
Hogan had such
an influence in WCW. But it didn't really matter to
what went on
scenes. It was what was ON CAMERA that mattered.
