> WEEKEND RATINGS- Velocity did a 1.0 with a 1.9 share, Confidential did a 1.0 with a 2.1
share, and Heat did a 1.2 with a 2.3 share. No RAW ratings available
yet. (Ratings compiled by Nielsen Media Research and put online by
> OFF AIR NOTES FROM RAW- W-O Newsletter reader Andy de Greck was at last night's RAW in
Baltimore, MD., and sent in the following notes from the show. After
Heat tapings ended, a guy was 'shooting' free WWE t-shirts to the crowd.
During a commercial break more t-shirts were given out, this time those
red RAW ones. When cameras went off the air Ric Flair strutted down the
ramp for some action with Triple H. Nothing else interesting happened.
> WWE CREW ARRIVES IN AUSTRALIA- The Herald Sun in Australia has an article in today's newspaper
covering the arrival of the WWE crew for the Global Warning Tour event
later this week. The article revealed that WWE officials requested that
travel must be first and business class while a five star hotel, 24 hour
security by plain clothes bodyguards, a list of local gyms and a private
dining room are a must. The hotel where the crew and superstars are
located at closed off the restaurant so it was turned into a private
dining room and ordered extra gym equipment. Interesting as well is that
The Rock has a personal chef to prepare six daily meals that include two
filets mignon, a raw fish feast and protein shakes! How's that for royal
treatment! You can check out the full article at
> LIVE EVENT REPORT FROM MIAMI, FL.- W-O Newsletter reader Jorge Portuondo was at the WWE live event in
Miami, FL., this past weekend and sent in the following results. D-Lo
Brown defeated William Regal; Goldust defeated Chris Nowinski; Bradshaw
defeated Dreamer, Stasiak and Credible interfered, Dreamer regained the
title; Hardy Boyz defeated Justin Credible & Raven; Chris Benoit
defeated Rob Van Dam; Bubba Ray Dudley defeated Eddie Guerrero; Molly
defeated Trish Stratus; Steven Richards defeated Shelton Benjamin;
Undertaker & Booker T defeated Big Show & Brock Lesnar. Notes from the
'parking lot'; Brock Lesnar, Undertaker and Big Show didn't acknowledge
the fans and went straight in. Hardy Boyz arrived late (surprise?)'.
Justin Credible also didn't acknowledge the fans until our reader
screamed his real name and Credible replied by flipping him off. A fan
above the loading area spit on Credible. Our reader also got to talk
with Molly (who said he fall in love with!) and Shelton Benjamin.
> STOCKS- Stocks closed the day at 9.99, a 2.78% increase over the previous
trade. The day's range was 9.77 - 10.07.
>> THE ABNORMAL STRETCHBy Rick Rockwell, [rickrockwell@...]
Who attacked HBK? Mae Young? Lillian Garcia? Chris Jericho? These
Questions and more will be answered in today's exciting action packed
column THE ABNORMAL STRETCH. (cue the intro music)
"What's goin on with the world?
Yesterday, seen a bald head girl
WHAT? MOVE!! You heard what I said
I wouldn't be caught dead without a bald head"
(Attack of the Bald Heads, Onyx)
For those who don't want to see me gloating, scroll down to the next
paragraph. If you remember last week's column discussed the 4 main
suspects for who attacked HBK. I asked all you fine readers to send in
who you thought did it. I also gave my pick and I WAS RIGHT!!!! I
specifically said, HHH in the parking lot with a car window. GOD I AM
Here are the results from whom you readers thought attacked HBK.
1) Big Show - 35%
2) Booker T - 25%
3) Un Americans - 12%
4) Gold Dust - 8%
5) HHH - 7%
6) Eric Bischoff - 5%
7) Marty Jannety - 3%
8) HBK - 2%
9) Island Boys - 1%
10) Y2J - 1%
11) Trish Stratus - 0.5%
12) Moolah and Mae Young - 0.5%
Only 7% percent of you correctly guessed that it was HHH. So for you
readers who were correct, congratulations.
If you are not impressed with the Island Boys yet, just wait until they
actually wrestle a match. The bodies are being stretchered out on a
weekly basis. I honestly think that they killed Mae Young. Don't expect
Lilian to sing anytime soon, cause she is picking her ribs out of the
mat. For those who don't know, Jamal and Rosie were known as the Island
Boys. The one that flies off the top rope is the younger brother of
Rikishi and my partner the Tonga Kid. I spent 3 days with this awesome
tag team and they are truly impressive. Each one weighs over 300 pounds.
I hope the writers keep building the heat for the Island Boys because
they will be tag champs soon. They carry on the proud tradition of
Samoan wrestlers and Samoan tag teams. They also carry on the proud
tradition of the greatest family in the history of professional
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH. The Nature Boy got his revenge on Y2J and it looks
like we have a feud brewing. This was a feud that the fans were calling
for, so lets hope it doesn't end with Flair jobbing. Speaking of Flair
jobbing, the greatest of all time might have a new job come 2004. How
does Governor of the great state of North Carolina sound to all you
Flair fans? They will make a new state quarter with his face on it with
the letters WOOOOOOOOOOOOH coming out of his mouth. Space mountain will
be the new name for the governor's
mansion. The security will consist of Arn Anderson and that's it. If
anyone disagrees with Flair's politics, the rest of the Horsemen will
break their bones out in the parking lot. Oh how we can go on with this.
Continue to send all feedback, questions, and female photos to
rickrockwell@... . If there is a topic you would like
to see Double R cover in future columns, just let me know.
Only 30 days until the NFL starts.
