      We have a new reader's forum up at
      http://www.wrestling-online.com/cgi-bin/teemz/teemz.cgi . The last forum
      was f!@ked up but this one actually works pretty good. Instead of
      sending feedback to news on this e-mail address - which won't get
      printed on the newsletter - you can post your opinions there. You will
      need to register to post, after registering you will receive an e-mail
      from us with a password. If you don't register, you can read the posts,
      however you can't post anything.

      The wrestling documentary 'The Backyard' will be playing in Australian
      theaters come August in the 51st Melbourne International Film Festival.
      I saw a copy of the documentary a couple of weeks ago thanks to director
      Paul Hough and I must say that it was one of the most shocking,
      breathtaking pieces of work I've seen. The guys in there are just
      absolutely crazy. You thought ECW was hardcore? You ain't seen nothing
      yet. These kids use every movable object to their advantage and surely
      have more guts than brains. The documentary also goes to Rob Van Dam's
      backyard (hehe, get it?) where RVD himself talks about backyard
      wrestling among other things. Paul also managed to sneak in Caesar's
      Palace from some Tough Enough 2 work where one of the guys featured in
      'The Backyard' tries his luck to get a shot at some WWF glory. Did he do
      it? You'll find out only if you watch this great documentary.

      Paul has set up a mailing list for the latest updates on screenings etc,
      so if you're interested in subscribing, send a blank e-mail to
      THEBACKYARDFILM@yahoogroups.com .

      - Lita had surgery on her neck on Tuesday in San Antonio, TX., under the
      hands of Dr. Lloyd Youngblood. Recovery time is expected to take up to a
      year. Lita was dropped on her head while doing some stunts for the
      season finale of 'Dark Angel' a couple of weeks ago. Her boyfriend Matt
      Hardy was with her when she had surgery and flew to Scotland to take
      part in the second stop of the WWF European tour with the RAW roster. In
      the meantime, you can see Lita's appearance on 'Dark Angel' this coming
      Friday at 8:30PM EST on FOX.

      - Wade Keller, editor of the Pro Wrestling Torch reported yesterday that
      Tough Enough 3 is confirmed for another season. The second installment
      of the WWF show on MTV didn't get the success that the first edition
      did, mainly due to people blaming the lack of interesting characters
      selected as participants for the show. On Monday we contacted an MTV
      Publicist for an update on Tough Enough but didn't return our mail.
      Keller says that an announcement should be made this week.
