Reported by Al Isaacs at:
Mick Foley's book "Have A Nice Day" is set to debut at #3 on The New
York Times Bestseller List.

Having received the book through yesterday, the early
chapters are proving to be very entertaining. its an easy read
(although 508 pages, I have a feeling that it will be devoured
quickly). Foley proves to be as compelling on paper as his interviews
would lead you to believe, and its definitely worth checking out.

Reported by Zach Arnold at:
Frank Shamrock, the adopted brother of Ken Shamrock, has announced his
retirement from Mixed Martial Arts (
UFC, Pancrease, legit, not

His future plans are unknown at this point; I would personally expect
to see him turn to professional wrestling. Rather than debuting in the
WWF I would expect New Japan to make a serious grab for Shamrock to
enhance their already strong stable of former shoot style champions.
At this point, though, Shamrock has not announced his future plans.

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.

This is in response to the reader that thought ECW would provide a
haven for WCW fans unhappy with the new direction of WCW. I am one of
the Columnists that said I didn't feel ECW would suffice. From your
letter, it appears that you have mostly seen ECW on TNN and are basing
your views on this.

The ECW show that airs on TNN is a very "sanitized" version of ECW's
product. The TNN show has carried several outstanding matches between
Rob Van Dam vs. Jerry Lynn the first couple of months. I agree they
were fantastic matches, involving two excellent workers.

ECW Hardcore TV, formerly the ECW Syndicated Show, contains a lot more
"promo" type material, with a considerable amount of bleeping. The
promo time is usually expanded the show before a PPV. It is not
uncommon for everyone on the PPV card to be given time. You can see
some of this on the ECW
Hardcore TV Reports on my Web Page:

If you had ever attended an ECW house show, you would have witnessed a
lot of in-ring promos, containing some "colorful" language. When Bubba
Ray Dudley was in ECW, he incited several near riots with his material.
There are others in ECW that can also incite the crowd.

With Turner Broadcasting apparently relaxing their standards, it is
possible that TNN will as well. Should that happen, you would probably
see a lot more promo type material then you do now. While ECW may
appear to be a viable alternative since
IMO they have the best matches
available, in actuality it really isn't.

For those people that don't know, Syxx didn't started the cam thing.
It was Shawn Michaels back in 1995 or 1996 which he call the Kliq Cam.
But I do agree that WCW is turning into the WWF.
The Pro Wrestling Fantasy Tournament has entered Round 3! The field of
310 has now been narrowed to 89. Go to
kxtn/ for this and other activities including Revenge Championship
Wrestling, NFL Psychics (predict weekly winners), Celebrity Death
Match, and more!

In response to "Clarification" WBS #369 by

After reading the thoughts of Chris M. about the "Main Eventers"
situation in the WWF and about their top stars I felt that I had to add
my two cents. Just because Triple H joined DX does not mean that he has
instantly become a face. For the past 3 months he has
repeatedly drawn the most heat out of the fans that I have ever seen.

I attended RAW this past Monday in Providence, RI and after the show
had gone off the air, DX was already criticizing the fans, calling them
such things as "pussies" and "scum". In fact they
continued to downgrade the WWF's two top faces (
Austin and Rocky) by
spitting on them and kicking them while they were down.....drawing some
extreme heat from the fans. It will not be long before the creative
minds in the WWF have these guys as the #1 heels in the company.

As for his thoughts on Chris Jericho being one of the top 3 heels I
again will have to disagree. At RAW the other night for his match with
Chyna and D-Lo, he drew one of the biggest pops of the night. Fans
love Y2J's mic skills and his ability to work a great match and I agree
with Chris M. in his thought of Jericho possibly getting a title shot
at Wrestlemania but I do not believe he will be there as a fill-in
heel. Thanks for listening to my ideas.

To be perfectly clear with what's going on in wrestling is that
people were bored with the Rock N Roll Express (Good guys) against the
Midnight Express (Bad guys) good guy babyface Vs nasty pull your hair
bad guys. It was great while it lasted but you can only have that for
so long before it runs its coarse. In this instance it ran for over 10

I never understood how people complain so much about the state of
wrestling and right now it is bigger then it EVER was! I live on the
West coast and there was a long period of time where WCW never even
came out here. I didn't even get to see some of the greats like Ric
Flair or Dusty Rhodes in their prime. I got to see them for the past 4
or 5 years, but instead of being glad that Wrestling has finally gotten
to he point where it can make it
we are constantly hearing people bad mouth what obviously a huge
following LOVES to watch and be a part of.

For all of the people out there that talk bad about the WWF's formula
of entertainment . . . you will soon find out that it WORKS! That is
EXACTLY what people want when you see WCW skyrocket to a parallel with
the WWF, if not pass them. Remember that only about 5% of fans wanted
to see another 45 minute Dean Malenko Vs Juventud Guerrera match on
Nitro. This is not to confuse the fact that the WRESTLING is very
important, however the storylines must also be there. If they are not
then what you have is a multi million dollar roster that is in jeopardy
falling into third place behind a $100,000 stunt man roster from
Philadelphia, which is exactly where WCW was a month ago.

I have never met one single wrestling fan from all the WCW shows I have
been to in the last 5 years that was a Dean Malenko fan. In fact, most
people made fun of him or merely said that
WCW should get rid of him. Now thanks to the WWF's formula of
entertainment and storylines mixed in with the wrestling you can
already see Dean getting some heat. Even Shane Douglas was in danger of
being a flop in WCW and now will get over. So before all you Wrestling
purist get all bunched up down
there... .Down where, you ask? You know where! Save it because this is
what's best for Wrestling, which by the way, simpletons, was NEVER a
sport and was ALWAYS entertainment.
Steve Appy responds:
To be fair, I think that Dean Malenko has always had a pretty steady
following of fans. I know that has ranked among my personal favorites
since 1996, and I don't think that I'm alone here, am I?
Written by reader: Tina J Jones (edgeluvr)

Let me get this straight: People have been complaining about the old
Nitro. They've also been complaining about the new Nitro. I'll be
happy if they keep Hogan off TV (no more 20-minute interviews). As for
the WWF; as I'm a woman I don't approve of them being abused but at the
same time the performers don't seem to have a problem with it, do they?

Me being a wrestling fan (a pure one that is) think there needs to be
some spice to wrestling programs or no one will watch. Also I do think
the WWF needs to showcase more of the mid-card talent instead of Stone
Cold and the Rock doing their long interviews.

My point is; I love the action and storylines if they're not too goofy
(the Rock and Sock Connection); I don't like the sleep-inducing
interviews done by headliners. Thank you!
