      - Only one match has been signed so far for tonight's RAW at time of
      this writing. That is the Ladder match for the Undisputed WWE title
      between The Undertaker and Jeff Hardy. In other RAW related news, Jazz
      will be hosting the live RAW party from The World in NYC.

      - World Wrestling Entertainment managed to get two gold awards at the
      Promax&BDA 2002 awards. The awards were for program promotion,
      commercial for 'WWF Fall Classic' and for one of their PPV opening
      montages 'Freddie Fellini 2'. BSkyB in the UK also received a gold award
      for their promotion of 'WWE Insurrextion' on PPV. For a full list of the
      winners you can go to promax.tv.

      - Here's the schedule for this week. Live RAW tonight from the Verizon
      Wireless Arena in Manchester, NH., while the SD! brand performs in
      Portland, ME., at the Cumberland County Civic Center. On Tuesday
      Smackdown! tapings at the FleetCenter in Boston, MA. Two shows on
      Saturday, one in Frederick, MD., at the Harry Grove Stadium and the
      other in Mobile, AL., at the Mobile Civic Center. Another two live shows
      on Sunday, one in Wildwood, NJ., at the Wildwood Convention Center and
      the other in Savannah, GA., at the Savannah Civic Center.

      - W-O Newsletter reader Brenden Moore (toysandmusic.com) was in Madison
      Square Garden on Saturday for the RAW brand WWE show and sent in the
      results. William Regal & Chris Nowinski defeated Spike & Bubba Dudley;
      D'Lo Brown defeated Justin Credible; Shawn Stasiak defeated Bradshaw who
      later was pinned by Spike, and then by Stevie Richards and then again by
      Bradshaw to regain the Hardcore title; Molly Holly defeated Trish
      Stratus; Matt Hardy defeated Raven; Brock Lesnar defeated Ric Flair;
      Tommy Dreamer defeated Steven Richards; RVD defeated Eddie Guerrero;
      Booker T & Goldust defeated Big Show & X-Pac; Undertaker defeated Hulk
      Hogan. After the Dreamer/Richards match, Dreamer took of his shirt and
      gave it to a fan at ringside who was in a wheelchair. Jim Ross came out
      to announce the main event which also had a run in by Vince McMahon,
      helping the Undertaker. After the show, Hogan posed for the fans for
      around 15 minutes and was the recipient of the loudest pop of the night.

      - Many subscribers who attended Saturday's MSG show sent in word that
      the show wasn't sold out like we stated in Saturday's issue. Notes we
      received on Saturday said that the show was indeed sold out and further
      checking with TicketMaster proved that was the case. However, one reader
      in particular, Marcos Rodriguez, said that around 85% of the #400
      section - which is at the very top of the building - were empty, and he
      even bought his four tickets the day before the show in the first raised
      level of the arena.

      - W-O Newsletter reader Angela Fitta attended the live event in
      Providence, RI., on Saturday and filed in the following results. John
      Cena defeated Albert; D-Von & Deacon Batista defeated Hugh Morrus &
      Steve Bradley; Billy Kidman & Rey Mysterio Jr defeated Tajiri & Chavo
      Guerrero; Mark Henry & Funaki defeated Lance Storm & Christian; Torrie
      defeated Stacy in a Bra and Panties match; Billy & Chuck defeated
      Hardcore Holly & Big Valbowski; Jaime Noble defeated The Hurricane; Edge
      defeated Kurt Angle.

      - W-O columnist Chris Bernes was at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville,
      CT., yesterday for the RAW brand live event and sent in these results.
      Jacqueline defeated Victoria; Spike Dudley defeated Chris Nowinski;
      Tommy Dreamer defeated Justin Credible; D'Lo Brown defeated Shawn
      Stasiak; Bubba Ray Dudley & Trish Stratus defeated William Regal & Molly
      Holly; Raven defeated Bradshaw for the HC title, followed by Crash
      beating Raven for the belt, followed by Steven Richards beating Crash,
      and finally Bradshaw regaining the HC belt; Matt Hardy defeated Eddy
      Guerrero; Booker T & Goldust defeated Big Show and X-Pac; Rob Van Dam
      defeated Brock Lesnar by DQ; Undertaker defeated Ric Flair. Crowd was
      very alive and around 7,500 in attendance.

      - Stocks closed the day at 14.00, a 4.11% decrease over last Friday's

      “Tributes” By Dave Meltzer is a must have for wrestling fans.

      If Ray Stevens, Buddy Rogers and Giant Baba were before your time. If
      you know of Bruiser Brody, Eddie Gilbert and Art Barr by name only. If
      you want to take a trip back in time to remember Rick Rude, Brian
      Pillman, and Owen Hart, this book is the comprehensive look at some of
      the wrestlers who have died in the past twenty years.

      The Internet, and wrestling newsletters, sites, etc. owe a large part of
      their existence and style to Dave Meltzer and his wrestling observer
      newsletter that was started back in 1982. The first “Smart Sheet” set
      bar and standard that still stands today. One of the aspects of the
      newsletter that appeals to some fans is the detailed life information in
      the newsletter when a wrestler dies.

      There are twenty bios in this book, featuring many names that I am
      familiar with. It provides a lot of interesting information. Having
      never seen guys like Boris Malenko or Fritz Von Erich, the pieces on
      older wrestling stars provides a window to the history of wrestling. I
      learned a lot about the early careers of Dino Bravo, Rick Rude and John
      Studd because I simply did not know much about them prior to their late
      80’s WWF runs. It also allows the reader the chance to relive the
      careers many of us are more familiar with. Andre the Giant, Owen Hart,
      Louie Spicolli etc.

      It is at times heart wrenching and emotional, at others uplifting and
      enlightening. Still, one also looks at this book and is hit with how
      many wrestlers died young, and worries what the future holds for some of
      current crop of “stars” that may or may not be battling demons.

      The wrestling world has lost far more then those listed in this book,
      obviously. With recent deaths of Lou Thesz, Johnny Valentine, Rhonda
      Singh, Davey Boy Smith, it is likely only a matter of time before we are
      presented with another book of tributes. IF they are anything like this
      collection, it to will be a must read.

      Till next time.

      ** 'Tributes' can be purchased from WRESTLINGMEGSTORE.COM for only
      $13.97 **
