> RAW RATINGS- RAW took it's biggest blow since joining TNN this week, receiving a
4.8 composite rating with a 7.2 share. That's down 0.6 from the steady
5.4 they got over the past three weeks. The first hour received a 4.5
while the second got a 5.1. Quarter hour breakdowns are as follows: 4.3,
4.7, 4.5, 4.7, 5.3, 5.1, 5.0, 5.0 and 5.1 for the overrun. (Scherer)
> WEEKEND RATINGS- Livewire did a 1.1 with a 3.6 share; Superstars did a 1.1 with a 3.1
share; Heat did a 2.2 with a 3.5 share. Heat suffered a drop of a 0.4
from last week. (Scherer)
> WIN A TRIP FOR FOUR TO WATCH WWF!- UK satellite and cable provider giants Sky Digital are holding a

> GUERRERO INJURED- Yesterday night on RAW, Intercontinental champion Eddie Guerrero
suffered either a hamstring or a hyper-extended knee according to
published reports. Ironically enough, Guerrero suffered the injury in
the same arena that in February of this year he blew up his elbow after
a frogsplash from the top rope. That night was only Guerrero's - and the
rest of the Radicalz - second day at work in WWF land. The IC title
match against Bad Ass Billy Gunn is now in jeopardy but that could
change during the next few days if his injury isn't that much serious.
> MONA WORKS DARK MATCH- Former WCW superstar Mona worked a dark match yesterday before RAW Is
WAR against Ivory. The newsletter reader who attended RAW didn't catch
the name she was using. Also, Christopher Daniels worked another match
with K-Krush. Both Mona an Daniels jobbed to their opponents.
> AFTER RAW ENDED....- Although cameras stopped rolling, action still continued when RAW Is
WAR went off the air. Both Edge & Christian received a spinebuster,
courtesy of the WWF champion. The Hardy Boyz then took over, with Matt
giving Edge the leg drop from the second rope and Jeff doing a swanton
bomb on Christian. Angle also attacked the Rock, but it was only for a
few seconds until the Rock executed the People's Elbow on the Olympic
gold medalist to a large ovation from the crowd.

> NITRO RATINGS- Nitro also decreased by a 0.2 from last week, receiving a 2.3
composite with a 3.4 share off hours 2.7 and 2.9. Quarter hour
breakdowns are as follows: 2.3, 2.7, 2.9, 2.9, 2.2, 2.0, 1.7, 1.8. The
strange thing is that the viewers RAW lost, didn't tune on Nitro
neither. The wrestling audience this week was the lowest in many, many
> HALL ON THE WAY OUT- In a story first released by the Torch then an update on
1wrestling.com, it was revealed that Scott Hall's agent was notified
from WCW that the company will terminate Hall due to breach of contract.
Hall hasn't been active for a lot of months now and he's being paid for
just sitting at home. The former "Razor Ramon" has been with WCW since
mid 1996 and was one of the three men who turned around WCW with the nWo
angle. With the "Kliq" in the WWF, don't be surprised if WWF officials
are pushed to get the services of Hall once he's out. The World
Wrestling Federation usually don't hire individuals who are of a 'pain'
in the locker room or have serious problems like Hall does, but
obviously that could all change and there's no doubt that a healthy
Scott Hall can be a great addition to the WWF roster.
> MORE ON THE WCW SALE- Rumors are still running wild that the World Wrestling Federation will
end up purchasing WCW from Time Warner. Earlier today, the Torch website
reported that a deal could be announced as soon as this coming Monday.
Several days ago Mandalay Sports flat-out denied the rumors of having
talks with Time Warner regarding purchasing the company, although many
speculate that talks were indeed done but only under a different name.
Keller adds that McMahon met with executives in the past few weeks to
discuss the situation. WWFE President and Chief Operating Officer Stuart
C. Synder is believed to be the link between the two parties, since he
was a Turner executive himself in the past. The WWF purchasing WCW would
be the biggest wrestling-related story in the history of the business,
bigger then anything else done before. Although it seems too good to be
true, anything can happen in the field of sports entertainment, even
Vinny Mac buying his rival company. For now, everything is just
