>> BELLE OF THE BRAWLBy Lekisha Faith Oliver, [lekisha@...]
The merger to end all mergers is at hand. The WWF finally commented on
their possible merger with the WCW. With Linda McMahon commenting on
their bid on the race, this finally puts some truth to the rumors.
However, the WWF is not the only runners in the race. With Eric Bischoff
et. al, and Mandalay Entertainment in the bid war, the WWF has quite a
First there is Mandalay Entertainment. They are trying to extend their
company to sports entertainment. So they move from movies to television
to sports entertainment. Making transitions like that takes money and
connections. The possible buyout of WCW will make their industry more
for the entertainment of the people and not the purity of the sport.
(Editor's Note: Even if Mandalay stated that there have never been talks
of buying the company, Bischoff's team include them as financial
backups, probably under a differet name)
Next is the WWF. There are many people who would love to see that
combinations matches alone. However, think of the problems. No other
organization to have to make separate negotiations, no competition in
the market, and no take over of the entire amount of talent. How could
any independent compete? Even the ECW couldnt compete. So down to the
last shot, and the last shot would be, Eric Bischoff.
Eric Bischoff is one of the last shots that the WCW has. He has taken
the company in both good times and bad times. He has put the company on
the map and made it into a major a player. Eric is one person that could
remake or rebreak the company.
With these ideas and suggestions, Eric Bischoff is my choice for the
company, the WWF for the money and Mandalay for the people. So,
hopefully, the choice will be made soon. The public and the workers have
a right to know and know soon.
In this weeks column, I would like to extend my most heartfelt
condolences to the family of Yokozuna. May he rest in peace. Also, best
wishes and good luck in the future to Bret Hart, Scott Hall, and Juvi.
This weeks been crazy, but heres the Question of the week WHAT IS THE
BEST THING FOR THE WCW? Email your answers to
The best answer will win something. Dont know what it is yet, but
something. Until next week, stay safe and have a Happy Halloween. As for
