Latest News from around the World

In the recent episode of Beavis and Butthead, the two socially incompetent, heavy metal-loving teenage delinquents watch Rick Derringer w/ Hulk Hogan “Real American” and make steroid jokes.


As part of its continued effort to establish “The New Generation”, the WWF gives try-outs to professional powerlifter Mark Henry, independent stand-out Chris Candido, and Texas- and Memphis-based wrestler and valet Jackie.


Numbers for Halloween Havoc show the PPV buyrate to be around 0.85 which is absolutely disastrous. WCW had been openly predicting that the show would do nearly double of what Bash at the Beach did and instead, it did less. Considering all the money they put into promoting this show, it’s bad news all around.


In a recent radio interview Eric Bischoff said that the When World’s Collide PPV has opened his eyes up to Japanese and Mexican wrestling and that he has started the process of expanding into those markets and bringing high flying moves and fast paced action to the masses with a re-established Light Heavyweight Division renamed as the Cruiserweight Division with Brian Pillman, 2 Cold Scorpio and Sabu as the prospective showpieces. What a better way to for WCW to show their alternative lifestyle than by providing the perfect counterpart to WWF’s big, heavy and strong wrestlers: short, less muscular, high-flying, but technically experienced wrestlers.


According to rumors, Hulk Hogan pushes for ex-WWF star Koko B. Ware to be hired as the upcoming Cruiserweight Division’s central figure and figurehead.


More details on Missy Hyatt’s lawsuit against WCW. During her employment, Missy Hyatt alleges she was the victim of sexual harassment, discrimination, or retaliation by a number of people. The names included are Ric Flair, Jim Ross, Eric Bischoff, Mike Graham, Greg Gagne, Ole Anderson, Gene Okerlund and several backstage and office employees and range from people grabbing her breasts, continually asking her out for dates or sexual favors, making unwanted sexual advances, and threatening or intimidating her for reporting harassment. She also claims a full color photo of her, with her breast exposed when it popped out at Starrcade 93 was printed out and displayed around the office. She says she complained to Eric Bischoff, who did nothing, so she went above his head to Bob Dhue to report it. When Bischoff learned she went to Dhue, he fired her and Bob Dhue upheld her termination. She also alleges wage discrimination, saying she was paid less than men who did the same jobs and that WCW hasn’t paid her for merchandising income. And finally, she claims that after breaking up with Eric Bischoff’s friend Jason Hervey, he sent Missy’s belongings to Bischoff. However, Bischoff refused to return the items to her until she signed over the 3 expensive cars she had in her name.


5 Star Match! Last night’s AJPW Showdown Tour saw a new Match of the Year candidate when Kenta Kobashi & Mitsuharu Misawa defeated Stan Hansen and Rusher Kimura. The excellent bout is sure to feature heavily in a lot of end-of-year polls.


NJPW came close to getting a TV deal in the U.S. but it fell through. They were negotiating with TNT to air a weekly show because TNT wants to break into the Asian market. However, TV-Asahi in Japan, which owns 50% of New Japan, is also trying to expand into Asia and they saw TNT as competition for that, and refused to sign the deal.


In a recent radio interview Eric Bischoff puts over Jim Duggan for being able to get an audience behind him.


Atsushi Onita held a major party to celebrate passing the 1,000 stitches mark on his body. He’s trying to get into the Guinness World Records book for person who has had the most stitches.


In breaking news it has been confirmed that Vampire Warrior is to divorce Luna Vachon after she was caught having an affair with Kip James. The scandal apparently came to light after an incriminating sex tape was accidentally discovered by Vampire Warrior during the latest WWF Monday Night Raw tapings. More news as we get it!


The Gangstas gimmick in SMW isn’t working. SMW tried to cross the line and be controversial, and is has turn off a lot of fans. The crowds have dwindled and the Gangstas matches are mostly greeted with silence from the fans. New Jack cuts good promos, but it doesn’t sells tickets and in the ring, the team is awful.


According to rumors, Diamond Dallas Page seems to be clique building, having forged an alliance between himself and Johnny B. Badd.


In a recent issue of Sports Illustrated, they listed “Muhammad Ali handing Hulk Hogan the belt at Halloween Havoc” as that week’s Sign of the Apocalypse.


The Great Sasuke hurt badly! News has come in that The Great Sasuke has picked up Broken Neck. It is said to have happened during a match last night with Terry Boy for the MPW British Commonwealth Jr. Heavyweight title.


El Gigante and Warlord, two more of Hogan’s friends, may be headed in to WCW soon.


Last Night’s AAA When Worlds Collide! AAA held When World Collide last night in Equidome Arena in Arizona, and drew 5,599 fans. The feedback has been OK, although a lot of people think AAA should be doing better after WCW actually did put major effort to promote the show on their TV shows. WCW financed the PPV, with English and Spanish commentary to try and cross it over to American audiences. Mascara Sagrada, Angel Azteka and Blue Panther began their first reign as Mexican National Trios champions, when they took the titles away from Black Panther, Damian 666 and Pimpinela Escarlata.


On TV this weekend, Eric Bischoff was doing commentary and claimed the last PPV proves WCW is the #1 company. He then told fans to “check out the competition and when you’re done laughing at the clowns, come back, we’ll still be here.”


Plans for any Hogan vs. Vader matches, including the planned Starrcade main event, have been dropped. The new main event for Starrcade will likely be Hogan vs. Masked Assailant.


WCW settled the “When Worlds Collide” PPV name issue with ECW and as a result of the settlement, a couple of WCW wrestlers will work on an upcoming ECW show. No word on who it will be, although ECW has been desperately trying to get a Brian Pillman vs. Sabu match, but WCW has repeatedly refused to let Pillman be part of the deal. After this agreement is done, WCW has made it clear that they will no longer have any relationship with ECW.


Rumours says that WCW’s mascot Wild Cat Willie is portrayed by none other than “Leaping” Lanny Poffo.


Movie director Steven Spielberg is refusing to allow his new movie Schindler’s List to air on PPV, because he says he doesn’t want it to be associated with pro wrestling.
