> MORE PROBLEMS BETWEEN WWF & VIACOM- Bob Ryder of 1wrestling.com reports that more problems between the WWF
and Viacom have popped out. One of the major problems is that WWF are
reportedly 'majorly pissed' that Viacom and TNN officials lied to the
WWF about the availability of TNN in US households. The number now is
much smaller than actually previously thought, which might explain why
numbers for RAW and the other shows have been low compared to the days
of USA. The second major problem is that Viacom are dead-against the
fact that WWF are trying to buy WCW. Viacom are the exclusive outlet for
WWF programming as outlined in their signed contract, and if WWF gets
WCW, their programming will still remain on TNT and TBS. Although WCW
would be operated as a separate company, it's still a WWFE product so to
speak. Things will get pretty interesting in the next couple of weeks!
> NO MORE TALKING FROM THE HARTS UNTIL THE 7TH- Lawyers of the Hart family ordered them to keep silent until November
7th when the case is scheduled to be wrapped up by the court. However
there's still a chance that the motion filed by the Harts and the WWF
this past Friday might get rejected. Since the announcement of the
settlement came out, the Harts freely spoke - although limited - about
the situation. When talking to the Calgary Sun, one of the Hart's lawyer
said, "They can speak freely when we come back, from the court date."

> STERN SUPPORTS WWF ACTIONS- The "king" of radio Howard Stern recently supported the actions taken
by the World Wrestling Federation against the Parents TV Council. As
outlined yesterday in the newsletter, the WWF will probably file a
lawsuit against the PTC as early as this week. Howard Stern's show was
the target of the Parents TV Council in the fall of 1998 and the
organization basically did to his show the same thing they are doing to
> WWFE STOCK- Stocks closed at 15, a 0.83% decrease over the previous trade. The

> LESS THAN 1,000 PAID FOR NITRO- The ongoing WCW problems don't seem to be vanishing anytime soon. This
past Monday's Nitro drew only around 800 paid fans reports Dave Scherer.
The total attendance was approximately 2,000 in an arena that holds up
to 5,000 fans in a wrestling set-up. That attendance must be one of the
lowest ever for a Nitro show in it's five year history.
