Dynamite Kid - real name Tom Billington - is in a wheelchair after

rejuvenate it, it may be a better strategy for us to sell it," he
continued. These are the first public acknowledgments by a Turner
representative regarding the sale. Heyer also confirms talks with the
World Wrestling Federation, however he said negotiations ended because
the deal offered wasn't appropriate at the time. The article ends with a
note that in the past 2 years, WCW's ratings dropped by 40%. Thanks to
Wrestling-Online Newsletter reader Raul Trujillo for the heads-up on the
