Quick correction from issue #1123, it was Dr Lloyd Youngblood who
performed the neck surgeries on Austin and Benoit and not Dr James
Andrews. Thanks to everyone who sent in the correction.

> SMACKDOWN! RATING- Smackdown! did a 3.9 rating with a 6.0 share, and although down 0.1
from last week, still very strong considering all the hard competition,
including the World Series, on other TV channels. More viewers are
tuning in Smackdown! than RAW.
> CHRISTIAN/BRADSHAW MATCH FROM SMACKDOWN CUT- The Christian vs Bradshaw European title match from Smackdown! was cut
out from the broadcast yesterday for some unknown reason, probably due
to time limitation. Christian ended up winning the Euro title from the
APA member and his title reign is expected to be carried on TV even
though it wasn't shown on Smackdown!
> DIANA HART CHATS ON SLAM!- Diana Hart, ex wife of the British Bulldog and the youngest member of
the Hart family, did a chat with the fans at the SLAM! Wrestling website
earlier today. Most questions were regarding her family and her

well by Hart. To read the transcript check it out at

>> DON'T BLAME CANADABy Jason Clevett, [jason.clevett@...]
Another young person dead, another teenage indicted on manslaughter
The SLAMWRESTLING website reports that a 16 year old has been charged in
Wilkesboro, NC in the death of a nine year old when they were wrestling.
My brother and I used to wrestle all the time as kids. Basically what we
did was lock up and rolls around and stuff. I wouldnt ever slam or
suplex my brother because it was made clear to me by my family that
Wrestling was a fantasy world and these moves could hurt. The worst
damage I ever did was, being a huge Bret Hart fan, mastering the
sharpshooter (something The Rock could take a few lessons in) and
randomly applying the move, which in turn ended up doing a bit of damage
to his knee. Other then that it was always safe, and often a competition
(to this day, I still cant get the little brat in a Boston Crab.)
Fact of the matter is we were educated to know that slamming each other
through coffee tables, jumping off the beds, and slamming people onto
their heads. On top of that my brother and I were close to the same age
and size, rather then 225 pounds vs. 65.
So once again, another case is brought to light with a childs death.
WWF has tons of commercials saying Dont try this at home but in the
end it is up to the parents to make it clear that this sort of stuff
isnt appropriate behavior, especially in a situation with a substantial
weight and age difference. If your child, especially in their teens,
really wants to wrestle, find a local amateur wrestling club. Wrestling
has its time and place. When I was a kid it was pretty basic, now people
go overboard in their fantasy worlds.
How many more kids have to stupidly injure each other before we realize
