The Wrestling Booking Sheet

Reported by Dave Meltzer at:
Meltzer reports that indications point towards Vampiro staying in WCW.
Paul Heyman apparently “didn’t pull the trigger” in terms of acquiring
Vampiro; Vince Russo assured Vampiro that he would like to keep him in
WCW and that big plans would be in store for him if he stays. Of
course, the new contract offer will have a lot to do with his final

Reported by Dave Meltzer at:
The Ultimo Dragon (Yoshihiro Asai) officially announced his retirement
from professional wrestling in a 10/20 press conference in
Tokyo, Japan.

Asai’s career was ended when a botched surgery on his elbow left his
right arm largely useless in a wrestling ring; while many of us held
out hope for an eventual return to the ring, early pessimistic reports
turned out to be true.

While his positive influence on the wrestling scene will continue (he’s
currently training some of the promising talents on the planet), his
in-ring skills are worth a moment of reflection. There was a two year
period when Asai was arguably the best worker in the world, and his
absence from the ring will leave the wrestling business a worse place
for it.

Most of you have heard of Dave Meltzer & The Wrestling Observer, though
many of you have not been exposed to The Observer (you don’t know what
your missing). Meltzer is also doing a free daily internet radio show,
which can be found at:

The two hour show can be heard live from
6:00 PM-8:00 PM on the East
Coast, and
3:00 PM-5:00 PM on the West Coast. Meltzer & co-host Bryan
Alvarez discuss all of the breaking news stories of the day, and have
had quite a variety of featured guests (highlights include Chris
Benoit, Vince Russo, Terry Funk , & Jim Cornette).

The previous days show is available to listen to at any time; those of
you who really have a deep interest in the inner-workings of wrestling
really do need to check this out! Meltzer is generally considered the
top wrestling journalist in the history of the business (not an
exaggeration, and almost without argument), and you will benefit by
being exposed to his knowledge of the business.

Below we present Chris Jericho’s latest commentary to his fans, found

NP:Disciple-This Might Sting A Little
Hello Jerichoholics!

Once again, its so important to keep up the prayers and well wishes
for Droz. The good news is that he's slowly improving, but he still
needs our help. He's a tremendous guy and even though he's not out of
the woods yet, I believe that he's going to get through this, with our
help!!! God bless you brother!!

I love the controversy and gossip that transpires over the net. There's
a lot of rumors and postings that Y2J is out for the count, that Y2J is
a failure!! My response to that is I hope you guys who are writing that
truly believe it. That way I'll have the distinct pleasure of shoving
it all down your throats when I am at the TOP of this profession (which
is only a matter of time)!!!!!!

As far as the so-called problems between myself and my peers inside the
ring, well I guess the smart marks that think they know all, were
fooled by our artistic mastery yet again. Haha, got you jerkys!!!!

The Jerichoholics are multiplying (not declining), as well. Thanks to
all of you for your signs at the arenas and a special thanks to the
Atlanta friends who bought $12,000 worth of Y2J shirts at the dome last
week. Wear em loud and proud mutha truckas!!!
Now on to some fun stuff. Let's continue the 1000 match celebration
with some more of my fave matches of my career. They're in
chronological order once again.

6. CJ vs. Ultimo
Dragon-Tokyo, Japan-July 7, 1995- This is one of my
top two or three best EVER. I worked with Dragon for about a year
straight and this match was the culmination of all that hard work. Asai
is probably my favorite opponent that I ever worked with. We had
tremendous chemistry and that shows in this match. This was the third
year anniversary of WAR and we stole the show in a sold out Sumo Arena.

We got a standing ovation from the boys in the dressing room when we
returned and I also received a $1000 dollar bonus from Mr. Tenryu

7. CJ vs. Wild Pegasus (Chris Benoit)-
Tokyo, Japan-Dec 13, 1995- This
match was my last match of 1995 which was my best year of actual in
ring performance. Even though I was one of the top ten in
America in
96, 97 and 98 (according to Meltzer), 95 was my best far.
This was in the second round of the second Super J Cup, a tournament
featuring the best wrestlers in the world. This was my first match with
Benoit and it was sort of a dream to wrestle against him. He was great
and the match, even though it didn't go the way I wanted it too, still
turned out great. Chris also knocked me silly with a slap at the
beginning of
the match. if you watch the match, you can see it!!!

8. CJ vs. Pitbull #2-Philadelphia, PA-June 22, 1996- After I had given
my notice to Paul E that I was going to WCW, he still had the
confidence in me to put the ECW Television belt on me in this match.
The crowd popped huge at the upset finish and the match was awesome as
well. When I watch this match back, its a wonder I wasn't killed!

9. CJ vs. Shane Douglas vs Pitbull #2 vs Too Cold Scorpio-Philadelphia,
PA- July 13, 1996- This match went about 45 minutes and wasn't put
together until about 30 minutes before it began. This was due to Paul
E's stalling at what he wanted for the finish. It turned out great and
was a testament that you don't have to go over everything in the back
room to have a successful match!

10. CJ vs Dean Malenko-Johnstown, PA-
March 28, 1997- There were no
television cameras present and the arena held about 4000 people. But
this match was awesome! For whatever reason, the first three matches
were late, so Dean and I had to go to the ring and work until they got
there. What transpired was a 35 minute bout that started with Dean as
the heel and me as the good guy. Well, the crowd hated me and as a
result, I worked as a heel for the first time in WCW and we rocked the
house! Dean was great and so was the match.

I'll finish up next week, so make sure to check it out! The book of
the week is the Godfather by Mario Puzo. I'm looking forward to
checking out the flick!

Don't forget to make your travel plans with Jessica at 1-800-621-2016

of you nicely!

The main two angles that people find "disgusting" in the WWF are the
incest & death angles. I really don't see the sudden outcry that these
angles have no place in wrestling. What is the big deal about them
since you easily see these things in movies & TV shows? Face it people,
wrestling is no longer about "wrestling" it is about the angles & the
WWF is just coming up with more angles instead of the same old stuff.

I've been watching the WWF since I was 9 so that is about 9 years for
me. Just plain wrestling doesn't cut it anymore. I personally get tired
of seeing poor wrestling matches & just focus on angles. I miss real
good matches. But today that isn't what the majority of wrestling fans
want. They want the catch phrases & the shocking stuff that makes it
entertaining. The angles are fake & are things that happen everywhere.
Just because wrestling is probably the most popular thing going now
doesn't mean you have to criticize everything that happens because it
offends you. One person makes up probably .000001% of wrestling fans.
If you find it offending then all you have to do is take your lil
finger & change the channel.
