The Wrestling Booking Sheet

Reported by Al Isaacs at:
Isaacs reports that Dusty Rhodes is about to leave WCW, supposedly to
avoid an on-air feud against son Dustin.
Rhodes has been working on &
off as an assistant booker for the past several years, with his
influence rising & falling depending on who was in charge.

Often cited as one of the more creative minds in the business, the
three-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion has been involved in booking
some of the more entertaining scenarios of this generation. He was
also responsible for some of the most repetitive angles in memory, with
the infamous "Dusty finish" helping to killing off most of the
JCP/WCW's prime territories.

It's unknown if
Rhodes would find a job opportunity in the WWF; I would
think that cooler heads may prevail & that
Rhodes may end up staying in
WCW. After all, there aren't a lot of employment opportunities for
performers who have spent their entire working lives in the wrestling

Reported by Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter
Meltzer reports that WCW is considering firing Juventud Guerrera Jr. if
his English skills don't improve (remember, Russo has stated in
interviews that he has no interest in pushing "Mexican or Japanese

Debatably the second best worker in the company, Juvi has always
received very strong reactions from the audience despite being given no
reason to care about his character.

While it would clearly be in Guerrera's best interest to learn English
if he intends to practice his craft in this country, WCW would be
making a HUGE blunder if they cut this talented performer.

Evan Karagias versus Juventud Guerrera
Once again, another match between these two was interrupted.....this
time by Norman Smiley. Smiley said that he found his niche as a
hardcore competitor and every WCW athlete would receive a "big wiggle"
beating. The Cruiserweights then attacked, but collided in mid-ring.

he and Sid would be standing tall.

Coach Buzz Stern w/Luther Biggs versus Eddie Guerrerow/Filthy Animals

DFG and walked away. Steiner then attacked Benoit and walked away.
The bell was rung when the Iceman interfered. A fight then broke out
between the Revolution and the Filthy Animals.
Winners: Match Thrown Out (According to Scott Hudson)

I am fed up with WWF wrestling. On SmackDown tonight I must admit that
the main event was good, better then they usually are. But what makes
me mad is that when Stone Cold was "injured", the Rock became the
biggest and best wrestling superstar! It was great, as The Rock is my
favorite wrestler!

The only reason why I really watch wrestling anymore is because of The
Rock. Now that The Rattlesnake is back, The Rock is second to Stone
Cold?!?! This is bulls**t! S.C. is hurt so they build up the Rock,
then Rattlesnake comes back, and no more story lines for the Rock? No
more catch phrases or storyline for the Rock. S.C. and the Rock are a
great duo to make great storylines, but now it seems they just focus on
S.C., back to the Rattlesnake ways of the last few years of WWF

I mean, I knew that Stone Cold would end up finishing the match with
the other 3 teammates going down. I don't know, but it makes me really
mad. Thank you.
Steve Appy responds:
I don't think that you have to worry too much about The Rock; he's
obviously being groomed for the top spot in the company, and he will be
given plenty of focus in the future. Whether you agree with the
decision or not, The Rock, barring injury or a bad attitude, will be
the future of The World Wrestling Federation.

The reason you don't hear from fans of Dean Malenko is because, like
the man himself, we choose to comport ourselves with class, maturity
and quiet dignity. We don't shill and shrill, mark and bark or any of
that other juvenile jive. That said, not only is Deeno Machine-O (I
loved when
Jericho called him that) the
MAN, the finest technical wrestler in WCW
today, not only is 3 minutes of his focus and intensity on the mike
worth three hours of stand-up comedy from any other performer, but he
delivers what has to be, pound-for-pound, the highest impact slams in
the business!

His matches against the likes of Rey Jr., Eddie Guerreroand yes, the
Ayatollah himself, Chris Jericho had some of the most electrifying
power moves you'll see on American T.V (if you kids could pay attention
that long without someone flashing her tits). Anybody who thinks The
Man Of A Thousand Holds is boring should never, ...E-E-E-EVER... be
allowed into a conversation on wrestling again. Thank you. Applause.

Did he "make" wrestling or "destroy" it? To create,
you must first destroy. McMahon and the WWF certainly
have destroyed some elements of wrestling, while creating others.

Yes, the characters are larger than life, their stories move faster and
the whole dynamic has changed. But, it has changed with the times.
Can you imagine ANYONE watching wrestling these days if it was just two
big bruisers hammering at each other
AND everyone knew that the ending
was planned? Inconceivable! If it was not for Vince & the WWF, pro
wrestling would be completely dead. An old joke that no one would

McMahon and the WWF have made wrestling incredibly successful. Keep
in mind it is still a business, just like baseball, basketball and
hockey. And businesses have three possible stages: Decline, Static and
Advancing. And if you are Static, you will soon be on the Decline. A
business has to keep moving ahead. And that is what the WWF is doing.
Advancing. Pushing the envelope.

If you want to keep wrestling the way it was in the old days, well then
you might as well take it off of television. As I recall, isn't there
a great story about the wrestling promoter who kicked out the guy who
wanted to put his wrestling matches on TV? And where is he today?
Certainly not in
Titan Tower...

Space Mountain's the oldest ride in the park. You know what the
problem is? It's still got the longest line in the park, Jack.

I was catching up on e-mail when I read about someone spreading crap
about Kevin Nash. I've been fortunate to meet a lot of the guys in the
business, one of my hobbies is keeping scrapbooks of my favorites and
having them autograph pictures in them for me when they come to town.

I first met Kevin Nash as Diesel and watched him & Shawn Michaels go
through my book and crack jokes on each others rookie pictures. Another
time I saw Kevin hold court with fans in the parking lot after RAW as
they wished him well on his new WCW deal.

Another time I saw a crowd of about 50 people in a hotel lobby waiting
for autographs after Nitro. We were waiting for Kevin, Scott Hall and
Bill Goldberg, who were relaxing in the bar. Each one came out one at a
time after the bar had closed and took the time to sign autographs and
pose for pictures with everyone who wanted one. Kevin was the last one
out and after he'd finished he asked if there was anyone left who still
wanted an autograph or picture before he went up to his room. Nobody
left disappointed!

A friend and I went to one of those autograph signings this guy was
talking about. This was at a sports show in Houston TX. Everyone there
knew the
SHOW was charging for Kevin to sign and it was no big deal. My
friend brought some photos of Kevin that he took at a Nitro that he'd
blown up to get signed. As we went through the line Kevin explained
politely that he was only ALLOWED by the show to sign one item per

He (Nash) asked if we could catch him after the signing so he could
sign them and Kevin told us to catch him at the airport, that he was
flying out after the signing and he told us his airline & flight time
just so my friend could get his pictures signed! We went to the airport
and as we made our way through we heard "Hey! You guys looking for
someone?" We turned around and there was Nash taking a picture with a
girls softball team.

He told us how his flight was delayed and invited us to have a few
beers with him while he waited! He signed my friends pictures, some
more pictures in my scrapbook (including signing a "Master Blaster
Steel", "Oz" and "Vinnie Vegas"
To complete my collection!) and signed for anyone else who came up and
asked him! I hope this clears up any questions about what kind of guy
Kevin Nash is! Kevin Nash is a man who truly cares about his fans and
anyone who says differently is a liar!
