Championship Wrestling after threatening Terry Taylor backstage at
Thunder. Dave Scherer says that he won't be on Nitro or Thunder for this
coming week, and the length of the suspension is still unknown. Steiner
definitely has to control his temper or sooner or later he's going to
get fired for his actions.
> HALL'S RETURN MAY COME TO A HALT- Dave Meltzer of the Observer is reporting that there are problems with
the angle involving the return of Outsider Scott Hall. Turner executive
Brad Siegel is against the idea of bringing Hall back to action. Meltzer
says that Hall had a rough relationship with Seigel's niece, Emily
Sherman. Considering Hall's past problems, WCW better make sure that
this time is the right time. The guy probably came and left more times
then Hogan did!

> TNN CANCELS ECW SHOW- As expected, TNN has cancelled the ECW show that currently airs on
Friday nights. Come September 22nd, ECW will get off The Nashville
Network, and hopefully by that time, a new home would be secured for
ECW. Meanwhile, TNN spokesman David Schwarz told the Pro Wrestling Torch
that the reason is, and I quote "ECW has failed to meet some of the
criteria of the agreement, including ratings performance targets." To
this date, ECW on TNN is the highest rated show on the network, so that
was a cheap shot thrown in by the TNN spokesman. He concluded with "We
appreciate the efforts ECW and Paul Heyman have made to bring wrestling
fans to TNN."
