This week's Smackdown
Spoiler contains a major piece of news;
definitely a huge
I've always been kind
of torn about whether its a good idea to run the
spoilers. I know that
they are very popular (in fact, some of you
enjoy the spoilers
more than anything else in the newsletter). Still,
it does take the
surprise away from the show, and really some of the
enjoyment. For all of
you that skip them, I fully understand; for
those of you who
devour them, its understood as well.
The Spoiler will be
appearing at the conclusion of this issue; as
always, if you would
rather be surprised, please skip it.

A RESPONSE TO THE
Written by reader:
In response to The
In an excerpt: "Then
came Sting and Luger, now heels, beating up Ric
Flair. Sigh. As boring
as the "Bad Guy" Sting is, nothing can compare
with that inbred
nimrod, Sid (and, on a side note, please, WCW, give a
gun to the ring girls,
so if they see that freak going for a microphone
they can shoot him and
put us all out of our misery.....please!). "
WCW did something
totally unexpected at Fall Brawl. Sting went heel
after being a hero for
the past decade. Sting now being a heel allows
WCW to create new
angles not possible before. Sting may be boring in
your eyes but having
Ric Flair in this segment energized the situation.
Ric Flair is one of
the all time greats in wrestling ability and being
good on the mic.
"Later on, I was
reminded how "old school" WCW was with
second time, sigh. I guess I should know that all
foreigners think that
Americans are lazy and stupid, and that their
nationality is the
master race. Wasn't that Nikita Volkoff's angle in
A common side effect
of a typical WWF fan is selective memory. Just as
recent as a few months
ago Tiger Ali Singh would do this same basic
routine where he would
insult Americans. Ali Singh, though, would
challenge Americans to
disgusting acts. Basically, the same idea.
"Then, finally (and
mercifully) the Benoit match came. But it didn't.
Instead Benoit beat
Rick Steiner, took a lower belt than the one he
lost, and we, who were
guaranteed the match, once again found out that
WCW just doesn't
really give a damn about us. And I was left sick."
Everyone felt sick
"...All I have to say
is this......GIVE US WHAT WE WANT!!!!!!!!!!
The WWF does. ECW
does. WCW? Nope, they give us what the wrestlers
The WWF gives us what
we want? I don't want to see 2 move Austin or
Triple H have the
title. I want a real wrestler to have the title. Why
can't Mankind have the
title? Or let some of the lightweights make it
to RAW instead of
confining them to their own show. WCW doesn't satisfy
Why is Hogan still
wrestling? Why don't Hart or Benoit have the belt?
Why is Sid on TV? I am
not satisfied by any wrestling fed and I doubt
every wrestling fan is
either. So when you say "GIVE US WHAT WE
WANT!!!!!!!!!!" I hope
you are referring to your multiple personalities
because you don't
speak for me or a number of wrestling fans. And
before anyone responds
to me of being a "WCW mark" just reread this and
you will see that I
have negative and positive comments about both feds.

Match at Unforgiven. I
don't know how that match is going to work. I'm
sure they'll explain
it Thursday. It had a Royal Rumle setup starting
with The Rock and The
Big Show and everyone else coming out in 2 or 3
minute intervals in
the order above. Elimination was being thrown over
the top rope.
The Rock came out
first and cut a really funny promo talking about
Taker, Big Show, and
Kane. It was about them playing The People's Slot
Machine. He even
imitated Kane again.

street clothes and to
his older music, like the one on Vol 3. He went

Something about the 6

Before he came out
Bossman said he had the remains of Pepper in a
doggie bag he was
holding. The doggie bag was put on a pole above one

Triple H vs His Choice
Triple H came down and
talked for awhile about who he could fight. He
then said he could
choose the referee and he asked Shane to come out.
Shane came out and
stood next to Chyna. He then called out Vince. Vince
was shown in the back
with Linda. Triple H insulted McMahon until he
came out. Vince said
he wouldn't fight but Triple H said something
about Linda and the
match finally started. The match went of for a long
time. When Triple H
hit Vince with a chair Shane attacked Triple H. It
turned into a brawl
with Brisco and Patterson and a few other people.
Chyna was holding
Linda while Triple H taunted her while beating Vince.
Austin then came down
through the crowd and totally screwed up a
stunner on Chyna (I'm
sure they'll edit that out somehow). Austin then
stunned Triple H and
put Vince on top of him. Shane counted the 3 and
VINCE McMAHON IS THE
NEW WORLD CHAMP!!!
Austin ran back
through the crowd and Triple H followed after him.
