> LAWLER RELEASES STATEMENT- Jerry "The King" Lawler released his first public statement regarding
his recent departure from the World Wrestling Federation. Lawler
explains how Ross delivered the news, his meeting with Vince McMahon
shortly after and a very detailed explanation of what happened on
Tuesday. Since it's too big to post here, we uploaded it at our Info
Central page at http://www.wrestling-online.com/infocentral/ (courtesy
of the official Lawler website). Lawler also requested that the fans
e-mail the WWF creative team to tell them what we think about the whole
situation. Lawler listed four e-mail addresses in his statement that
might already have been blocked by WWF technical staff.
> LOCAL MEMPHIS NEWS PICK LAWLER STORY- Memphis' The Commercial Appeal newspaper picked up the story of Lawler
quitting the WWF due to his wife being released by the company. Lawler
said that not only he quit the WWF, but he quit the XFL as well. When
the reporter asked if he'd return to the WWF in the future, Lawler said
that he didn't envision that at the moment, but anything is possible.
Lawler has been with the federation since 1993. TV station ABC24 also
did a feature on Lawler during the news.
> VOLUME 5 GETS SOME GOOD PUBLICITY- Several media sources such as Variety, Sonicnet, Reuters and others
gave 'WWF Music Volume 5' some good free advertising in headlines
announcing the surprising debut at #2 on Billboard's Top 200. Although
Shaggy secured his #1 spot on the chart, WWF's new album knocked out the
Beatles' '1' album from the second spot. 'Volume 5' sold 177,000 copies
in its first week out of the 1.5 million distributed worldwide.
