      > RATINGS
      - RAW received a 3.4 rating for Monday's show with a 5.0 share,
      definitely not good news for the company as it's back on the low 3.0's.
      That is down from last week's 3.6. The show did hours of 3.4 and 3.5. In
      other weekend ratings, Velocity did a 0.6 with a 1.0 share, Confidential
      did a 0.5 with a 1.0 share and Heat did a 1.1 with a 2.0 share. (Ratings
      compiled by Nielsen Media Research and put online by 1wrestling.com)

      - The following matches were taped for tonight's Smackdown! on UPN. Matt
      Hardy vs Eddie Guerrero; Basham Brothers vs APA; Kidman vs Tajiri;
      Orlando Jordan vs The Big Show; Kurt Angle & Undertaker vs John Cena &
      Brock Lesnar.

      - These videos are on Billboard's Top 10 Recreational Sports chart for
      the week ending October 4th. 'Vengeance 2003' is in second place, 'From
      The Vault - Shawn Michaels' in sixth, 'Bad Blood 2003' in eighth and
      'Brock Lesnar - Here Comes The Pain' in ninth place. All mentioned
      videos can be purchased from WrestlingMegastore.com on DVD.

      > STOCKS
      - Stocks closed the day at 10.30, a 2.83% decrease over the previous
      closing. The day's range was 10.25 - 10.63.

      - WWE head writer Stephanie McMahon will be on the Jimmy Kimmel Live
      show on ABC next Thursday at 12:05AM EST. Other guests lined up with
      Steph on the show are Quentin Tarantino and The Sounds will be the
      musical guests. Kimmel almost has a WWE personality every week or two on
      his show!

      What was I thinking? Skipping out on an opportunity to go to the
      greatest sports entertainment spectacular of all time? A chance to
      finally meet my Wrestling-Online colleagues after 2 years of exchanging
      countless emails and Instant Messages? A chance to finally grasp the
      phenominon that is Jason Clevett?

      Sadly, there is this thing called a college education that is suddenly
      taking over a large part of my life. Which, in case you were wondering,
      explains my lengthy absense. Getting adjusted to this thing is a hard
      thing to, well, get adjusted to. Going without wrestling for nearly a
      month is also a hard thing to get adjusted to. So, Monday's RAW was the
      first wrestling episode I have seen since, well, Kane tombstoned
      Shane-O-Mac on the steel steps. I don't completely understand why I
      chose to forgo my love of wrestling for such an insane amount of time,
      but I think it might have something to do with the fact that once you
      hit college, you realize some of your childlike behaviors, and you take
      steps to correct them?

      We all know, though, that certain behavior, though we know it to be
      quite peculiar, never changes despite all our efforts. That said, I
      opened up my hotmail mailbox for the first time in a couple weeks, and
      was quite apalled to see a lack of intelligent columns on this sheet.
      Thus, I
      decided to end my sabbatical from wrestling, get involved again and to
      add back to Wrestling-Online the flair (no pun intended) that it has
      been missing since I left. Remarkably, it still manages to remain the
      most widely-read wrestling newsletter out there, which gives me yet
      another reason to continue my hobby?

      I also happened to figure out that I am on Spring Break the weekend of
      Wrestlemania. It is this thought that troubles me the greatest -- I
      should have bitten the bullet and ordered a ticket. Which reminds me, if
      any of you have a ticket that you would be willing to part with, let me
      know by email... you can use the address above. Maybe I will go and see
      my cohorts in crime after all.

      In the mean time, I think I will amuse myself by hacking up the snot
      that is remaining in my lungs from a nasty cough I have had. And you,
      dear reader, should do something more productive than read the random
      ramblings of Jon, as I realize that this issue has been noting but a
      steady stream of incoherent mumbo-jumbo. The thought occurs to me,
      though, that some of you may enjoy that, so I think I will leave it as
      it is.

      Until next time, it has been your pleasure. Go read.
