The Wrestling Booking Sheet

Reported at::
In the 10/29 edition of 'The Ross Report', Jim Ross announced that a
"major action-adventure star" would be making an appearance on the
11/11 Smackdown; has announced that Arnold Schwarzenegger is
the superstar in question.

It's believed that Schwarzenegger will be promoting his upcoming movie;
I would imagine that an interview w/clips will be the extent of his
involvement, despite any possible teases that the WWF will put forth
over the next week. Below is the press release from

" received word that Vince McMahon just got off
the phone with Arnold Schwarzenegger to finalize the details of
Schwarzenegger's involvement on next Thursday's (Nov. 11) SmackDown! will have much more on this enormous development!"

Reported at::
After several weeks of speculation, Terry Taylor has left his assistant
booking position in the WWF and will be returning to WCW.

There were two main factors involved in
Taylor's decision: the
no-compete clauses that all of the WWF front office staff were being
pressured into signing and
Taylor's aspirations to being named head
scriptwriter of the WWF.

Taylor, who has worked in the wrestling business all of his adult life,
balked at signing a no-compete clause that stated that if he quit or
was even fired from the WWF, it would be a one year period before he
could sign with WCW (or any Time Warner company). While the clause
would likely be defeated in a court challenge, the time lost and
expenses incurred could deter a reasonable person from wanting to sign
one (especially since it would have been enforced even if the WWF FIRED

Taylor had lobbied for the head scriptwriting position, and it's
unknown if this idea was shot done due to
Taylor's unwillingness to
sign the contract, or if McMahon simply did not feel that
Taylor was
qualified for the position.

Taylor has often been recognized as a creative wrestling mind, with a
special knack for booking finishes (a weak point for WCW writers Russo
& Ferrara). It's believed that
Taylor does have a positive working
relationship with both men, so it looks like we may see
Taylor deeply
involved in the creative process of WCW. Below is the official press
release from

Taylor and the WWF part ways
Terry Taylor will no longer be working with the World Wrestling
Federation. He has accepted a position with WCW. Everyone here at the
WWF would like to wish Terry luck in all his future endeavors.

Reported by Wade Keller of The Pro Wrestling Torch Hotline & Mike
Samuda at::
Wrath (Brian Clark) has been released from his WCW
contract. Injured for most of 1999 with an
ACL injury, Wrath has been
working under a 3-year deal with WCW for $325,000 per year. WCW had the
option to terminate the contract after a one-year review (I'm still not
sure if these deals are under 90-day-review or one-year review). Wrath
has been out of action for most of the year.
Clark is said to be one
week away from receiving medical clearance to return to the ring, and I
would guess that the WWF would have some interest in signing the huge
performer (especially given their long standing fetish for size).

Reported by Wade Keller of The Pro Wrestling Torch Hotline & Mike
Samuda at::
Keller also says that WCW management is not pleased with Stevie Ray who
complained about doing a job to Buff Bagwell. Apparently WCW has also
approached Stevie about reworking his contract, which pays him $750,000
per year.

Stevie Ray, who is arguably the worst pushed wrestler in the company,
is grossly overpaid at $750,000 a year; a lazy worker with poor
coordination, his very talented younger brother (Booker T) would be
much better off if allowed to return to the single ranks.

Though there can be a strong case that Vince McMahon "made" wrestling,
there could also be another strong case that he ruined wrestling. He
may have made pro wrestling a more lucrative business, but he also made
it more of a joke. Cartoonish characters, big stiffs constantly being
pushed to the top and lowering the standards in which many (most) fans
view matches, etc.

I know I may be the minority in this, and maybe it's simply the
contempt I have for him and what, in my eyes, he's done, but I think
he's done more to hurt the sport of professional wrestling then help it.
