> HOGAN TO AUSTRALIA DESPITE NO MATCH AT EVENT- WWE Global Warning Tour event organizers today confirmed to us that
Hulk Hogan 'is definitely going to Australia' for the tour despite
having no match on the card. A few days ago, WWE announced the card
which is headlined by Triple H vs Brock Lesnar vs The Rock for the WWE
title however Hulk Hogan is nowhere to be seen. The organizers added
that they haven't been told what Hogan will be doing on the show but
will be involved in some way shape or form. This will hopefully put some
clarification for Aussie fans who flooded our e-mail being angry that
Hogan will not be there.
> RATINGS- Despite having decent shows in the past couple of weeks, Smackdown!
ratings went down again this week pulling a 3.1 with a 6.0 share, down
0.2 from the previous week. (Ratings compiled by Nielsen Media Research
and put online by 1wrestling.com)
> OFF AIR NOTES FROM SMACKDOWN!- W-O Newsletter reader 'Rich9116' attended the Smackdown! tapings this
past Tuesday and sent in the following notes. After the show went off
the air The Rock got up and told Lesnar he wasn't ready to leave
Charlotte. Lesnar went to the ring and beat on The Rock until Edge came
in to help the champion and the Rock then delivered a Rock Bottom on his
> STOCKS- Stocks closed at 10.00, a 1.86% decrease over the previous day. The
day's range was 9.87 - 10.19.
> SUMMERSLAM, SKY SPORTS OR SKY BOX OFFICE?- The WWE International website lists that this month's pay-per-view
SummerSlam will be aired in the UK on Sky Box Office in the United
Kingdom as opposed on Sky Sports 1. WWE signed a five year deal with
BSkyB a couple of years ago that had eight of their twelve PPVs airing
on Sky Sports while the other four PPVs where picked up by Sky Box
Office when the contract with Channel 4 expired in the beginning of this
year. Richard Dennis, WWE representative for the UK told us this morning
that SummerSlam will be airing on Sky Sports 1 and not on Sky Box Office
as reported by the WWE International site and the mention of SBO on the
website is just a mistake.
> FINLAND, NORTHERN IRELAND ADDED TO WWE EURO TOUR- Finland and Northern Ireland have been added to the European WWE tour
in October with the Federation doing stops there on October 24th in
Helsinki and October 25th at The Odyssey Pavilion in Belfast for two
shows. The tour will be wrapped up in Sheffield, England on October 27th
at the Sheffield Arena. On the 26th there will be the live UK only PPV
Rebellion which is taking place in Manchester at the MEN Arena. W-O
Newsletter reader Mike Palmer adds to the story that VIP Hospitality
packages will be done once again for the UK stops and they include
signing session with WWE Superstars, complimentary official WWE licensed
official WWE event programme, food and of course tickets. These packages
go for £229.12 inc VAT (358.37 EU). You can book your VIP package by
calling 020 7371 7596 or by e-mailing info@... .
Tickets go on sale on August 31st for the public.
> RAW IN UK EDITED- The RAW feed in the UK shown minutes ago on Sky Sports 1 has been
edited and the Island Boys/Moolah/Young segment was cut off. Just as
Bischoff told Moolah she was going to experience the final chapter,
commercials kicked in and the feed was resumed with Mae Young in the
>> THE LEGACY OF TRUTHBy Chris Bernes, [obiwanjabroni19@...]
Have you ever been in a chat room where everyone and their brother is
offering to let you join their "e-fed"?? As if half our lives are not
spent in front of a computer (me for work, 99% of the world for
pleasure, either legal or illegal), some jamoke is asking you to spend
even MORE of your precious time on your PC to IM moves and promos back
and forth in some sort of Dungeons and Dragons type system.
Well, this is a story not of an e-fed, but of fantasy booking, fantasy
matches, and a hell of an initiative
I wish I would've created, but I am following nonetheless.
This story is about my good friend, "Jason". A while ago, Jason and I,
in our infinite boredom, and looking for an outlet for our creativity,
created two promotions, Fictional Wrestling Company, headed by Jason,
and Crack Pipe Wrestling, my brainchild, in an attempt to see if we
could do the job all of us would love to do... book a promotion.
We each created a set of characters.... the characters who "Cross-over"
into each other's feds are FWC World Champion Cool Papa, Former CPW
world champ the Legacy (Guess who he is modeled after??), the Unreal
K-Lindo, Chic Glitz, and El Diablo Blanco (current CPW commissiner).
FWC boasts a roster that includes John Black, Han Lu, Genesis, Soul
Judge, Anonymous, and King Nothing. FWC's titles are few, in trying to
keep from watering down the importance of said championships. To his
credit, Jason is far more creative than I when it comes to alot of
things, and his bantamweight title is proof. The FWC bantamweight title
is currently sponsored by northeastern supermarjet chain Stop and Shop.
Jason also produces a weekly "Show", a fictitious account of a
wrestling program, and sends the results to me and a number of our
So it was with this inspiration that I too try my hand at producing a
weekly series. CPW claims the following talents: CPW World Champion
Felipe the Pool Boy(who won a tournament played by me and my friends on
July 10th using Nintendo 64's classic, No Mercy, and to my knowledge, is
the first ever homosexual world champion), Destroyer, Doc C, the
original gangsta G, Blacques Jacques, Wifebeater, T-Shirt Jones, and the
ever popular Joey Numbers.
On occasion, jason and I will "Import" little used or out-of-action
national talent like Jeff Jarrett, Al
Snow, Kane, and Steve Austin, but we try to stick with our own homegrown
The storylines are great, oft times laced with dry humor and srcastic
wit that only our circle of friends would understand. Jason, in his
program "The Show", runs numerous angles and stories that have the
potential to carry on for months, and finds new and exciting ways to
keep them not only fresh, but interesting. As I currently attempt to
build CPW's program, "Mid-week Melee", many of my talents are embroiled
in controversy, from competitor and commissioner El Diablo Blanco,
Felipe and his group The Sisterhood (made up of the world champe and his
cohorts, Velvet Ragnar, Ace Hoelicker and Phil McCrackin), and G.
The most interesting story of all involves my friends and I. The once
proud "Old School Alliance" has crumbled. Cool Papa, modeled after
Jason, orchestrated an attack on fellow alliance members Legacy (that's
me) and Chic Glitz (a model of our friend Nat), and Papa has alligned
himself with Legacy protege K-Lindo (my roommate Ken) to unleash a reign
of terror in both companies as the newly-dubbed Modern death Squad.
What is going to happen next. That is for Jason and I to figure out.
But rest assured, whatever it is, it's
gonna be fun, fresh, and completely interesting!!
That is the truth, y'all. And sometimes the truth hurts.
LAST WEEK'S TRIVIA: Arny V and Christine D get dual props on being the
first to answer correctly, and Christine gets the extra credit. The
first member of the Cobra Corps (remember, Sarge was a babyface when the
first official Cobra Corps was introduced) was private Terry Daniels.
Christine dug deeper to mention that Daniels went on to be one of a
number of Leatherface's in Japan. Oddly enough, another former member,
Corporal Kirschner, plays Super Leather in Japan also. Way to go, guys!!
THIS WEEK'S QUESTION: Everyone knows who the last ECW world champion
was.... it was Rhyno. Most of you also know that the first ECW champion
was Jimmy Snuka. Who was the first ECW TV champ???? And for extra
credit, whom did he beat for the title??
