personally appreciate Mick Foley, Mankind, for
truly on Raw on
Monday night. It certainly was another uplifting
gesture for me,
in what has
been a very challenging six weeks or so of my life,
and it really
meant a lot to
me for Mick Foley to even think of me at a time like
Monday night. I
really do appreciate what he had to say, and
certainly ... it
to my eyes ... my family members that I was with as

Turner's show on Monday as
not very positively, or honestly quite frankly ...
from one of
rather no talent lackeys. I just consider both the
sources of each
remark. One is
a man of character and integrity, who has
passionately paid his
dues and enjoys
telling the truth. The other individual possesses
none of the
qualities in my opinion, and is definitely trying to
his own limited performing skills, and to stroke his
inflated and apparently fragile ego. Now there's a
big difference folks
in the fact
that one of these men has the respect of virtually

WCW and Fat Tony made a desperate attempt to stop
to a taped RAW by announcing that Mic Foley defeated
The Rock and
won the WWF
Championship. They completely misread the fans
reaction and in fact
may have caused
more viewers to switch than normal. They apparently
comprehend Foley's almost universal appeal. Picking
on Foley was
about as cool
as calling a baby ugly at its christening.
As a result of
this bonehead move, the Internet was awash with
what they did.
Most people blasted The Rotund One for his continual

particularly for his insults directed at Foley.
was only doing what Good King Eric and the Powers of
WCW told him
to do. You
didn't really think he had an original idea, did
you? The next one he
gets in his
head will die of loneliness. Besides, Sir Large can
that grand old
stand by defense, "I was only following orders."
On this past
Monday's RAW, the WWF put on the latest of their
This time they
did a hilarious "Gillberg" routine, with Light
Gill (I choke every time I say that), doing Goldberg
himself. His "Who's First?" had people rolling in
the aisles, and
"Who's Next." Rumor has it that there may be more "Gillberg's"
snaps his "Streak" and wins in his 174th match.
After they did
this bit, WCW fans jumped on it and said it was no
what Mr. Big
did, also citing The Rock's doing Hogan, Savage and
If WCW did a
skit and teased the WWF, that would have been great
given us all a
good laugh. Remember when Nash and the NWO (whatever
was at that
time) did their spoof of Old Man Arn. It was one of
things I have
ever seen. It brought the house down. If they waited
a week and
Foley winning the Title, I don't think anyone would
and in fact may
have drawn a few more viewers.
That's one of
the big differences between WCW and the WWF today.
WCW seems to
too seriously, always looking to attack. The WWF
takes a more
approach, going after the competition in a fun away
NITRO?). Can you picture Good King Eric giving his
way the WWF gave it to Gill? I don't consider having
rant for 10
minutes every week an effective way of putting him
over. All that
giving NITRO viewers time for a potty and/or snack
break, and a
reason to reach
for the remote. How many people do you think left
I'll give odds you could have counted them on the
fingers of a
one armed man
(the missing one).
Next weeks RAW
is taped. Can we look forward to The Huge One doing
it again? If
I was Emperor
Vince, I think I would be praying he does. There
aren't too many
better way to
increase RAW's audience then that.
