>> OPENING WORDS FROM THE EDITORBy Colin Vassallo, [Editor@...]
I'm a little bit shaky today. Went to Disney's California Adventure and
the three rides I went on, I think I left some body parts there. First I
ended up getting a big shower in a rafting ride, then I experienced a
shuttle take off (4Gs, good gawd) and then getting fired like a jet
fighter on an aircraft carrier and turning up and down on a roller
coaster like crazy. Still feeling dizzy after a few hours.
Not a lot of news today. Back tomorrow.

> RAW RATINGS- Ratings for RAW keep decreasing, this time getting a 5.0 composite
with a 7.7 share off hours 4.7 with a 7.0 share and a 5.2 with an 8.4
share. Quarter hour breakdowns are as follows: 4.1, 4.7, 5.1, 5.1, 5.3,
5.0, 5.1, 5.3, 5.6.
> IDENTITY OF THE DUCHESS- Our good friend from WWF Entertainment dropped us a line to tell us
that the woman playing the Duchess of Queensberry was Sue Aitchison, who
works for the Corporate Communications at WWFE. Sue is from Scotland and
has been working with the WWF for over eight years.
> TWO MATCHES SIGNED FOR JUDGMENT DAY- Two matches have been signed for the Judgment Day pay-per-view. Stone
Cold Steve Austin defends his WWF title against The Undertaker and Chyna
defends her WWF Women's title against Lita. Speaking of Judgment Day,
the WWF opened the JD website at www.wwfjudgmentday.com
> JUDGMENT DAY POSTER- We have the Judgment Day PPV poster uploaded on our website at
http://www.wrestling-online.com/infocentral/ . This month's PPV poster
features a close shot of Austin and Triple H with the JD logo in front
of them. You can check it out at the Info Central in the PPV Posters
> ROCK ON LENO- The Rock was on the 'Tonight Show' with Jay Leno yesterday plugging
his 'Mummy Returns' movie. Leno showed footage from the movie while Rock
said three horrible Mummy jokes. Leno then asked Rock what's up with
wrestling. Leno fooled around when Rock said "according to the
storyline". When Jay asked Rock if he's working on new lines, he said he
is, then Leno got a guy who works there to suggest some lines. He said
some lines which were really, really bad. That's all that happened
during Rock's appearance. As always, Rock got a huge pop.
> WWF STOCK- Stocks closed at 13.25, a 1.85% decrease over the previous trade. The
day's range was 13.15 - 13.50.

>> DON'T BLAME CANADABy Jason Clevett, [jason.clevett@...]
Well hello. Welcome to the first Dont blame Canada article for
Wrestling Online. I have a fair amount of random thoughts this
week, so things are going to sort of bounce around a bit. In the
upcoming weeks, well there are a lot of topics sitting in my otherwise
relatively empty head that I am sure I will be subjecting you too.
First off, a bit of background about me. My name, obviously, is Jason
Clevett and I live in Calgary, Alberta. That place that put out a
bunch of wrestlers over time. As for myself, I have been a wrestling fan
for close to 15 years (yikes) and can remember getting
second row seats for a house show three weeks after it went on sale for
twenty bucks. This compared to eighty they asked for (and
got, it sold out) for the upcoming RAW here in May. I trained under
Keith Hart for professional wrestling, which gave me a lot of
insight into the sport and was a experience I will never forget. However
I havent stepped into a ring in awhile, deciding to pursue
other interests right now. I am only 22, I still have time to get back
in the ring.
I wrote for Charles Maclaurins Bagpipe Report what feels like eons ago,
and was involved in the ill-fated APWF. So this is basically
a chance for me to combine two of my loves... wrestling and writing. I
have also been printed on SLAM Wrestling as well as had an
article published in WOW Magazine when Blake Norton was a part of it.
So there is a brief synopsis of me, so you know a bit more of where I am
coming from. Before I get into my random musings, a quick
plug. I run an e-fed called EIW, started in 1996 and reopened a year
ago. Check out the site at
There, I got that out of the way. Woohoo! Now I will never....eeeeever
mention it again... maybe.
Anyways, things bouncing around in my head.
- Lance Storm has by far the best website for a wrestler. Even though I
wonder who one has to sleep with to actually get posted on
his comment board, his site is constantly updated and the way he
interacts is awesome.
- I miss watching WCW. I never thought I would say that.
- I miss ECW. This I knew I would think.
- I miss Owen Hart. I will talk about him for sure in a future article.
- I think people need to go catch more independent shows.
- I think when they are charging 100 dollars plus a ticket for a
concert, artists should let us have our damn napster.
- I think that last one had nothing to do with wrestling. I just wanted
to get it out of my system.
- I think you are wondering why I named the column Dont Blame Canada.
Because a) It is a blatant rip off of Lance Storm. b) I
AM CANADIAN!!!! (Fellow Canadians will get that) and c) well, the things
I say you may sometimes disagree with, and if you do,
blame me. Please dont bomb Canada.
- I think I am done this article. Next week however, I have a topic that
has been bouncing around in my head that Lance Storm
recently sort of cleared up for me on his website. I am sure the
suspense is killing you, I know it is me.
- Till next week!
