Vandy! (September 1996)

Issue # 303

The Wrestling Booking Sheet

Reported by
Brian Hildebrand passed away at approximately
7:15 pm on Wednesday

Brian fought a courageous battle against cancer, and was surrounded by
family and friends at the time of his death.

Brian was a WCW referee under the name "Mark Curtis"; he was loved in a
way that united enemies and brought universal love to his life.

Myself, along with the entire staff of The Wrestling Booking Sheet,
feel regret at the passing of a man who earned the respect of the
entire wrestling world.

Reported by Dave Scherer at:
The ratings for the week saw Raw draw a 4.4 rating with 11.0 share off
of hours of 4.6 (with a 9.3 share) and a 4.2 rating with a 12.6 share.
As an aside, US Open tennis on
USA only did a 1.6 rating.

Nitro did a 4.1 rating with 6.5 share off of hours of 3.8 (6.0 share),
4.2 (6.3 share) and 4.4 (7.3 share).

The weekend ratings saw WCW Saturday Night do a 1.3 rating with a 3.0
share. That is obviously a very low number but it was an hour show
this past week. Heat, which started a half hour early, did a low 2.5
rating with a 5.8 share. The show would have done a better number at
its regular time because the 7:00 and 7:15 quarter hours did 2.9
ratings, which would have built to a better number had the show been in
its regular slot.

The 9/4 edition of Livewire did a 1.7 rating with a 5.4 share. The 9/5
Superstars did a 1.8 rating with a 5.6 share.

Reported by Wade Keller and Mike Samuda at:
The Torch Hotline is reporting that the main event for Unforgiven will
be a six-way match for the WWF Title with Steve Austin as the Special
Referee. The other participants gunning for Triple H's title are
Mankind, Undertaker, Kane, The Big Show and The Rock. According to
Keller, two men will be in the ring, and four at each corner post.
Anyone can be tagged in.

Other matches scheduled include Ken Shamrock v. Chris Jericho, Jeff
Jarrett v. Chyna and the
Dudleys will likely face the Acolytes.

Reported by Dave Meltzer and Mike Samuda at:
Dave Meltzer spoke to Paul Heyman regarding the recently released WCW
performers. Heyman says that he would use Mikey Whipwreck on TV to put
guys over, but he would not get a full time position. The only one of
these guys Heyman is interested in for a full time position in Super
Calo. Heyman also told Meltzer that he doesn't think Sandman would pop
the territory, so he would not take him back, and he wouldn't want
Konnan's attitude in his locker room.

TEST/STEPHANIE IDEA (Contains a minor spoiler)
Reported by Suptman of The Jobber Report
With Test & Stephanie McMahon's "wedding" scheduled for October 11th,
Suptman pointed out the RAW will be broadcast live from the Gerogia
Dome. This would be a logical time for Vince McMahon to return to the

Austin and Rock are no better than Roddy Piper...why? They deliver
cheap heat!!! While the Hot Rod was talking about the cities baseball
teams recently, among other sports, how many times have The Rock and
Austin delivered the SAME exact quotes over and over and over, and to
loud ovations. Whatever works, right?

Chris Jericho is great on the microphone because he provides
entertainment at what he does.
Jericho is a one of a kind, that's very
true. Ric Flair had always done the cheap heat thing as well, but also
presented valid points about his feuds.

ANDERSON: CLASSIC. 'Nuff said...I don't think The Rock and Austin
can compare to what is described as a "Straightforward" style. Double A
was serious, but yet added humor when necessary, like "Slapping his
granny in the mouth for 50 cents."

I think if you take and actually took the time to pick apart everything
from the 80s and 90s (a big waste of time, unless you
don't have a job, family, or school), then it would be possible to
actually analyze the old from the new, and Arn Anderson would
definitely come out really high as one of the best interviews in the

There is no bigger supporter of Chris Benoit than myself. That said,
the angle with the Revolution does not seem to be getting over. My
argument would be, with a "heel" image, his persona would be much
greater. A take charge, I will kick in your teeth, you don't belong in
the same ring with me attitude would be more suited for him. A union
with Bret Hart down the road would also be great, with both being heel.

The rest of the current Revolution? Saturn would work a great show with
Vampiro, Shane Douglas vs Sting (The whole franchise thing), and move
Dean down to Cruiserweight status.
Just my views on improving WCW.

Best Mic worker. Yes, after thinking about this for a while I must
conclude that the Rock is the runner-up, not the best, though. Any man
who can twirl a pretend gun around for 10 seconds and have the crowd
love him for it is pure gold, but the Rock's only downfall is that he
constantly uses the same material. The only thing that changes is who
he is making fun of, what is being shoved up their ass sideways, and
what city the Rock has come
back to.

Still, the Rock has that unique charisma that makes us cheer him
every time he says "candy ass," and we love him for it. But as great as
the Rock is, Mick Foley surpasses him. Foley is clearly a unique
individual in many ways. Foley rarely uses the same material, and
always makes us laugh.

A clear example is when Mankind was on MTV during "WWF Week" on MTV.
Foley was talking about his classic "Hell in a Cell" match. He says
"the match hurt me for some time and
finally stopped hurting two months later when I got my paycheck."

The only way I see fit to end this entry is by saying another classic
Foley quote: "I can't jump very high, so I jump off high places."
