>> OPENING WORDS FROM THE EDITORBy Colin Vassallo, [Editor@...]
Hey yo. Hopefully things go back to normal now with daily issues being
delivered. There was a mistake in the awards yesterday in the Lita
write-up. Actually she had those lingerie spots with Dean Malenko and
not Eddie Guerrero as it was written. Doh! Thanks to reader Adam Tomyn
for spotting that. Yeah, first goof of 2002. Bah!

> NASH SIGNS?- Bob Ryder of 1wrestling.com today broke the story about Kevin Nash
signing with the World Wrestling Federation yesterday afternoon. Both
sides refused to comment on the story however Nash released a statement
yesterday morning saying not to believe the rumors. Today he released
another statement shooting down the rumors saying he did not sign
anything nor did he receive any WWF contract. It was the same case with
Jerry Lawler back in November saying that he didn't have a deal and
showed up on Monday on RAW to sign his new contract. Apart from
negotiating with the WWF, Nash was also engaged in talks with the WWA,
who after raising their offer for his services on New Year's Eve,
withdrawn from the bid yesterday according to WWA promoter Andrew
McManus. McManus told 1wrestling.com that bidding "went against all the
format and philosophy of the WWA." With WWA out of the picture, Nash has
reportedly accepted and signed with the WWF.
> RUMBLE NOT TO AIR IN THE UK- Earlier today we got official confirmation from WWF Director of
Marketing Communications Jayson Bernstein that the Royal Rumble will not
air in the United Kingdom. "At this time....Royal Rumble will not air in
the UK," said Bernstein from his WWF office in Stamford, CT. Over the
past few weeks a lot of rumors were popping up regarding the future of
the four WWF PPVs that were carried by Channel 4 in the UK. Channel 4's
contract with WWFE expires on January 6th, thus leaving the weekly Heat,
Royal Rumble, Backlash, Fully Loaded and Vengeance without a home. BSkyB
representatives expressed no intentions of picking up what Channel 4 had
when we contacted them last week. As it stands right now, no one is sure
who will get the rights to air those four PPVs and Heat.
