That Hogan has been the greatest star of his generation is undeniable.
That he has done more for, and to, the game than almost anyone is
equally undeniable. There's not that many people who could generate
the kind of controversy Hogan did during his championships. But
really, Hogan has no future in WCW and should have no future. Don't
get me wrong, I like him. its hard not to. But the basic fact is
he's pushing 50 and looks it. There comes a time when one has to hang
up the trunks and call it a career and Hogan has passed it.

Same with Flair and Piper. Flair looks like he's being groomed to take
over the Executive spot in WCW, and Piper always has his things going.
Of all the people of their generation only Savage still has any real
life going in the ring. Savage actually reminds me of Terry Funk,
he'll retire the week after they hold his funeral services. He'll be
109 and in a wheelchair and challenging Flair's grandson to a cage
match. But I digress. Hogan and Flair are great, but its time to let
them retire.

But as far as Russo and Ferrara go, I've been paying attention to all
that's been said about them, good and bad, and I'm beginning to wonder
if their joining the WCW was really a good idea. I've especially been
paying attention to Jim Cornette's views on the subject, and I tend to
agree with him.

I'm something of a wrestling purist, I like my wrestling, and as bad as
WCW has gotten I still contend that that's still their strongest point:
The pure technical talent they have. Oh, they do need quality writers
and quality storylines, no denying that. But are Russo and Ferrera the
ones to do it? I don't think so. They don't have any respect for
tradition and technical wrestling. For them its all the show, and the
tackier and raunchier the show the better.

They don't like the over-40 crowd, which includes some of WCWs best
technicians, and they don't like the Luchadores and Japanese wrestlers,
again some of the best pure talent. Oh, they'll bring in the numbers
and they'll use all the younger talent,
but the pure quality will be lost. Last week on Smackdown I watched
Val Venis open up his fly and pull out a sock with the Rocks face on
it, and I saw a mud wrestling match between Ivory and Miss Kitty where
the winner won by ripping the top off her opponent. Is this what Russo
and Ferrera will be bringing to the WCW? Are they going to "improve"
WCW by taking away the talent and showing this kind of trash? I feel
very sad if it is.

In reference to Miss Epting --I read your article and I am very
unpleased to say that I totally agree with you.

Being a female fan of wrestling sure as hell ain't easy; there's the
criticism, the sexist remarks and degrading roles that the female
wrestlers take and that we must endure. Most of the female wrestlers I
never had a care for; Ivory looks like she needs to go back to the
retirement home, Debra needs to crawl back into the coffin of silicon,
Miss Kitty is a disgrace and Sable...yuck. The only decent woman in
the WWF I found was Tori; but even she has lost most of my respect, due
to her attempt to come out into the ring with Ivory...topless.

Chyna seemed like a woman who would go far in the WWF; but what does
the WWF do? Oh no, we can't have women breaking history, we can't have
woman actually doing what the people want; what sense would that make?
I thought that women of the wrestling type could rely on Chyna for a
breakthrough performance; I've only found that she seems to be the
underdog, the imp of Triple H.

What the WWF pulled on SmackDown! was totally inappropriate and
incredibly degrading.

The sexual references on the show has become so uproarious that GUYS
have lowered themselves to grabbing other guys' crotches. Admitting to
an addiction to sex. Sleeping around with the "whore" of the WWF and
fighting for her pleasure. Has the WWF *really* resorted to
pornographic material to get better ratings?

All I can say is, good luck WWF; even the majority of your fans can see
through your mud caked lens...good luck. I appreciate your
inconsiderate moves and hope only the best for your plastic surgeons.

I think Chris Benoit and Dean Malenko are tremendous athletes that give
it their all when they wrestle. They give the action, they have good
matches with the likes of Bret Hart, Booker T, Eddie Guerreroand many
others. But to go as far to say they are main event status I have to
disagree. The thing about main event wrestlers is that they don't need
to know how to wrestle. They can go out there give Irish Whips and Leg
Drops and they will get cheered more than Chris and Dean.... Why????
Well, they are marketable.

When people see Benoit and Dean they change the channel to RAW because
they are not familiar with them that much. They know Hogan and Sid
Vicious. They know Goldberg. That is why the ratings go slightly up
in the main event

Chris and Dean are great wrestlers but internet reporters keep bashing
WCW for not putting them up the main event status. With Russo and
Ferrara in WCW look for Benoit and Dean to be pushed up as soon as
their tour of Japan is over. This doesn't only go for Dean and Benoit,
this goes for Guerrero, Booker T, Saturn.

In my mind WCW is doing a pretty good job with Benoit. Trust me, he is
not ready for that main event push yet. WCW will build him up; Billy
Gunn has been in the WWF for 6 years and he hasn't found the IC gold.
It will take some time for Benoit to feud with Goldberg, Flair, and
many other. Please give it some time…

Wow! 30 minutes of pure wrestling! That is something of a rarity in the
wrestling world today. For those of you who missed the 10/4 Nitro,
which is vastly improving week by week, I am speaking of the 30 minute
match that Bret Hart and Chris Benoit poured their hearts into in honor
of Owen Hart's memory. No flashy entrances, no wild pyros, no trash
talking, no hatred or extensively hyped build-up, just two of the best
workers of the decade putting on a show not only for the fans, but for

I truly believe they are both satisfied with the show they put on, and
they sure worked hard at it. In the end they were exhausted. No doubt,
wrestlers and personel were backstage 3 watching eagerly as their
friends and colleagues put on what has to be the hardest fought and
throughly enjoyable matches in quite some time. Some
may say it was slow, but that is what a true wrestling match is: a
culmination of ring technique and a psychological wearing down of your
opponent, and that is what we saw. That is what wrestling is all about.

Nitro had a lot of that. Malenko/Rey Jr. was great, Kidman/Juvi was
great as always, Psychosis/Disco was also a good match and so was
DDP/Bagwell. While one fed is wrestling based and one is sports
entertainment, I personally am a fan of the wrestling itself. Sure,
storylines add some spice and make things more interesting and
certainly are essential for the show to be enjoyable, but one thing:
what do these angles and storylines ultimately build up to in the end?
That's right, a wrestling match. That is the reason we buy PPVs.

Granted, I too like some of the skits and interviews and such, but what
really makes you ooooh and aTriple Hh is the wrestling itself. That
separates who can 'walk the walk' since many 'talk the talk', which in
itself is an aquired talent and is much needed to get the point of the
fued across and make the character seem complete.

In closing I would just like to end on the note that for this fan, what
I witnessed Monday night between Benoit and Hart is what makes me
really watch wrestling. It allows me as a fan to immerse myself in the
energy of the competitors and become part of the action. This truly was
a classic and I was glad to be able to watch it. I always welcome any
comments or criticism, as long as they are coherant. Please feel free
to email or
AIM me at qwiksand or ICQ me at 23708702. Thanks
for reading. Take care: O)
