> RAW PREVIEW- No matches have been announced yet for tonight's show however cable
previews suggest that Vince McMahon will be in the house again this
week. Didn't he say that he won't be on RAW anymore? Damn liar! In other
RAW related news, D-Lo Brown will be hosting the live RAW party from WWF
> REFEREE'S WIFE PASSES AWAY- WWF.COM reported today that Amy Robinson, wife of former WCW - and now
WWF - referee Charles Robinson passed away yesterday. She was suffering
from cancer. During the WrestleMania weekend, WWF.COM put up a column
regarding her situation and Robinson said he hoped that his wife would
live for a few more months. Unfortunately that wasn't the case as she
passed away less than a month after the article was published. Our
prayers and thoughts are with Charles and his whole family.
> CHECKING IN IN PHOENIX!- Wrestling-Online Newsletter reader Gabriel Cruz who works at the Hyatt
Regency in downtown Phoenix, AZ., sent in notes from yesterday's WWF's
crew arrival to the hotel. Our reader told us that Triple H and Steph
shared the same room while Vince had another room in the same floor.
Nash, Hall & X-Pac all arrived together in a white Ford Expedition while
Bubba Ray Dudley & Tommy Dreamer also arrived together at around 4:30AM.
Jim Ross forgot his cell phone in his car so our reader came in for the
rescue and got tipped a nice $10. Not too shabby! By around 3:30AM, Hall
and X-Pac were "drunk as f!@k" and our reader managed to get them a cab
to take them to a waffle house. Gabriel also told us that he was talking
about Carpet Munchers (if you don't know what's that, search on Yahoo,
you'll get the idea) with the Supervisor of the Graveyard Security
Guards at the hotel and Hall told them that "he was offended!" Yeah,

>> THE ABNORMAL STRETCH: BACKSTAGE AT THE WWFBy Rick Rockwell, [rickrockwell@...]
WWF came to Davis, California for a house show on April 6th; yours truly
was there. If there ever is a chance for you to go backstage, I highly
recommend it. One word to describe it all, AMAZING! Watching how a show
is run from behind the scenes, gives you a whole new perspective.
Meeting the superstars and interacting with them was great. Of course
there were some that didn't interact at all, but what do you expect.
There could be any number of reasons for the lack of interaction. So we
will give them the benefit of the doubt. Here is a list of who was there
and how they were.
FANS, WHY? (Wrestlers who looked disgusted at the sight of fans)
Hardcore Holly, Dean Malenko, Fit Finlay.
FANS, WHAT? (Wrestlers who smiled as they were running for shelter)
Al Snow, Maven, Test, Torrie, Val Venis, Scotty Hotty, Albert, Tajiri,
FANS, WHEN? (Wrestlers who split before you could say thanks for the
Kurt Angle, Stacy Keibler.
FANS, WHERE? (Wrestlers who were looking to sign autographs and take
HHH, D-Von Dudley, Rico, Ivory, Edge, Christian, DDP, Kidman, Rikishi,
Randy Orton, Lance Storm, Hurricane Helms, The Rock, Hulk Hogan, Chris
Benoit, Saturn, Farooq were not there. Chris Jericho, Hugh Morris, and
Chavo mysteriously appeared on the show but nobody knows how these men
entered or exited the building.
I spent some time talking with Ivory, DDP, Rico, Randy Orton, and HHH.
These individuals were great. Some highlights of the conversations were:
Ivory: Her wrestling competition, Tough Enough training.
DDP: His charity work, the retired Sting.
Rico: His true age, his long road to the WWF.
Randy: Stories of how tough his dad (Cowboy Bob Orton) is, His WWF
HHH: His workout routine
The best part of the night was seeing Torrie, Ivory, and Stacy preparing
for the BIKINI CONTEST. These eyes have never seen a finer sight than
those three women backstage in their bikinis. THANK YOU GOD!!!!! If you
want a play-by-play description, email me!
Closing words --- Ivory is a beautiful woman. Randy Orton will be a
future WWF star. HHH is huge, huge, huge. Stacy and Torrie are 8 feet
tall. AND I HATE LOSING AN HOUR OF SLEEP!
"Whether you like it or you don't like it, Learn to Love it; because
this column is the best thing going today."
