>> OPENING WORDS FROM THE EDITORBy Colin Vassallo, [Editor@...]
There's a reason why I love The Rock. Unlike Triple H, Rock actually
puts people over the best way he can. With his status, he can do power
plays backstage more than anyone in the locker room can. But he doesn't.
The way he put Hurricane over on RAW yesterday shows you what a true
professional he is. Love him or hate him, you can't deny his
contributions and the rub he gives to others who are in the same ring
with him. Triple H should learn from The Rock. I'm sure Rocky can give
him a lesson on 101 ways on how not to be a selfish bastard. Triple H is
a tremendous wrestler, I'm not saying anything agaist that, but for
cryin out loud, he's not Superman, Batman and Spiderman rolled into one.
Tonight is a special Smackdown! so to speak. It's Angle vs Lesnar for
the WWE title. With Angle out of WrestleMania due to injury, it's
expected that the title will be given to Lesnar after the match is over.
If you're going to the show, we would appreciate if you send us the
usual notes to use in the Friday issue. Thanks.

> UPN RENEWS SMACKDOWN!- In a release by the PRNewswire earlier today it was announced that WWE

specials. Smackdown! has virtually been the highest rated show on the
network since it debuted in 1999.
> OFF AIR NOTES FROM RAW- W-O Newsletter reader 'Joecsmooth' attended RAW yesterday and sent in
these notes. After the cameras went off the air, The Rock told the fans
to either chant 'Rocky' or 'Rocky sucks'. The reaction was mixed and
Rock asked the fans again. A loud 'Austin' chant started and Austin made
his way back to the ring. Rock told the fans he was going to sing a song
and ran down the fans in Cleveland and told them to kiss his @ss. He
tried to hit Austin however Austin ducked and gave him a Stunner to send
the fans back home happy.
