The Wrestling Booking Sheet

Reported by Dave Meltzer at:
Current WCW plans point towards the possible end of Ric Flair's full
time wrestling schedule. Tentative plans as of several days ago had
Flair suffering a "career ending" injury at Halloween Havoc (probably
at the hands of DDP), which would be followed by Flair announcing his
retirement from the ring.

Flair would return at some point for big show events, although his days
as a full time performer would be over. An on-screen role would be
given to Flair (WCW President? Manager of a revitalized Horseman?).

While these plans can change, they provoke mixed emotions to this
longtime fan. Should the older generation be phased down? Yes. The
problem with phasing down Flair is that he is still one of the top
performers in the company. Despite a disastrous 1999 that finally
dented the Flair mystique, the man is still over. He still draws
ratings, and the audience only gives a stronger reaction to Goldberg.

Even if these plans do go forward, do not expect them to be etched in
concrete. Flair is a proven ratings draw, and management is unlikely
to allow Flair to sit on the sidelines for long. In today's "Crash TV"
environment long term planning is out the window, and Flair can still
put on a captivating performance.

On a side note, Al Isaacs at reports that
the Flair/DDP Halloween Havoc match will become a Strap Match, in
reference to the Flair/Kimberly 'spanking' vignette on NITRO.

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.
OFF THE TOP ROPE RADIO is LIVE every Saturday morning in neighboring
Chicago, Illinois. Listen to Brian Schenk and Dan Bartels on WEEF AM
1430 from
7:00am to 8:30am. If you cannot get the show from where you
live, request a sample copy for only $2.00 and send it to PO
BOX 6082
Lindenhurst, Illinois 60046

"People in the back are going 'Jesus, this is the sickest, most
disgusting thing I've ever heard.' WRONG!! I can top it."
--Sam Kinison

I've been watching the WWF and its antics recently. Watching it
is kind of like when you pass a 13-car pile-up on the highway. You know
its disgusting and ugly, but you still have to slow down and look in
case you can see a body part. But still, there comes a time when you
have to say Enough's enough.

Paul White's father is suffering from terminal cancer. Or is he? its
hard to tell if its true or just a part of the show. But regardless
of whether its true or not, using it as an in-ring angle has to be one
of the most boorish and tasteless things the WWF's ever done. There's
nothing funny about cancer and there is absolutely no excuse for using
it like they're doing. Pushing the envelope of entertainment is all
well and good, but some things just shouldn't be done.

Whoever is writing the super-negative editorials to you guys
obviously is a WWF plant and doesn't like WCW in the first place. I
thought Nitro was awesome last Monday, it was more like it was about 8
months ago and before, exciting!

How did this guy not even think the thing with Flair showing up in his
son's place in Kim's room wasn't cool! That was one of the funniest
things I have ever seen and heard, especially how he jumped on the bed
and said he was giving Kim a 14 time spanking, whoooooo!

As for the show in general, it had more continuity, good matches except
the Smiley match, and the matches and angles had more of a point like
in the past. Maybe if WCW would learn to keep good talent it will be
#1 again like a year and a half ago. Don't let Vampiro or Hak go, put
them in good storylines, these guys can act and wrestle, they should
have never let
Jericho leave.

WCW's matches are usually way better than WWF''s (with the exception of
a few of their workers), now that the storylines are back again it will
be only a matter of time before fans come back to WCW. I like the WWF
too, but I have to admit when you are there live, all the fighting
outside of the ring is whack, WCW's worker's put on better matches.

As far as actual wrestling, ECW is the bomb! WCA is on the right track
again and they will be #1

I am glad that Vampiro has decided to stay in WCW, even though he
doesn't yet deserve the big salary that the Bischoff regime was paying
him. I think that he has enormous potential, and I would love to see
him wrestle Bret Hart, Sting or Chris Benoit. Those three would bring
out the best in him, not guys like Konnan who tend to make their
opponents look slow and lazy like he is.
