      > 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
      contest for all it's Digital subscribers, with the big prize being a
      trip for four people to Florida, four ringside tickets to a WWF event,
      free accommodation and £500 spending money! 50 runner ups will receive a
      video of Rock's "People's Champ" and another 10 will receive an
      autographed copy of "The Rock Says..." book. There's only 2 days left in
      this contest, as it will end on the 19th of this month. To participate

      > 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.

      > STONE COLD ON BYTE THIS!
      - "Stone Cold" Steve Austin will be the special guest on Byte This! this
      coming Thursday on WWF.COM! You will get the opportunity to talk with
      the Rattlesnake if you call between 6PM and 7PM or else you can e-mail

      > 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
      months. (Scherer)

      > 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
      speculation.

      Wilson and Pamela! You can watch the eye-popping photos at
