1/7/99

~ Vince McMahon is still skeptical that there is an NBC and WCW deal. He feels that since NBC hasn't officially announced it, the deal isn't as solid as many think. Vince was close to signing a deal with NBC, but Bischoff states that NBC backed out due to the fact the WWF is more adult orientated.

~ Apparantley the original angle between Liz and Goldberg was to have Liz accuse Goldberg of rape. Goldberg didn't like the idea, so instead they went with the stalking angle.


~ Stevie Ray is unhappy with his current role. He doesn't like the idea of having a small elite group of nWo, while he gets left out. His current role in WCW is still unknown. Bryan Adams on the other hand will get re-packaged with a new gimmick.

1/14/99

~ WCW may bring back The Warrior once again. WCW wil give him a limited contract to only appear a few times per month. NBC only wants big name stars from the 80's to headline the WCW-NBC shows. Warrior's name, along with Roddy Piper's have surfaced as potential main eventers.


~ The main event from the first Vegas NBC-WCW card will be Hollywood Hogan vs. Goldberg. This is the match that Hogan will get his win over Goldberg. As everyone knows Hogan cannot lose to someone without at least having a win over that person.

1/13/99

~ With the NBA back in full swing starting February 2nd, the NBC-WCW deal is a little shakey. It was announced that 2 shows on Febraury 14th and March 28th (both on WWF PPV dates) will take place from Las Vegas. Well the March show is all but cancelled, and the February show is still being decided. NBC will make a decision to either run the show or cancell it due to the NBA being back.

1/10/99

~ Chris Jericho's contract with WCW ends in July. He is not going to sign with WCW until July. He wants to wait out his contract then become a free agent. This way he feels that WCW, WWF and ECW will be putting up large bids to sign him. However, WCW has given Jericho a new ultimatum. If he doesn't re-sign with WCW by 1/17, he will be removed from Nitro.


~ Look for the lWo to turn on Eddie Guerrero soon. Eddie has become more of a dictator in the past couple weeks much like Bischoff has. Expect Juventud Guerrera or even Konnan to step up as leader of the lWo.


~ The current nWo line up consists of Hogan, Nash, Hall, Luger, Stiener and Bagwell. Stiener is no longer the leader. Guys like Stevie Ray, Horace & Vincent will be ditched. Bischoff wants the nWo to be the most elite group in wrestling. Also, look for former leader Stiener to have some sort of power struggle with Bischoff & Hogan later on this year.


~ Eric Bischoff is going to bring back the tag team division. It appears Bischoff wants Malenko & Benoit to be the top team in WCW. They were scheduled to take part in a tournament to crown new champs. However, with Malenko's injury, it's been put aside for now.

~ It was originally planned to have Ric Flair beat Eric Bischoff for the right to control WCW for 90 days. However, that was changed because Bischoff felt he needed something to win the ratings on Nitro the next night. He then pulled a rematch for the Nitro after.


~ Look for ring announcer Dave Penzer to begin doing Lee Marshall's 1-800-COLLECT Road Reports. Marshall's last day with WCW was yesterday, and he will now go back to Los Angeles to focus on his production business.

1/7/99

~ Kidman's contract runs up shortly. WCW was succesfull in re-signing Benoit, Malenko, Misterio & Guerrero. They are also working to get Kidman a new contract with a hefty raise.

1/16/99

~ Look for the Public Enemy to accept the Dudley Boyz challenge they made at Guilty as Charged. They won't wrestle on the 16th. Instead they will anounce they accept the match. ECW will most likely hold the match at the Living Dangerously PPV.


~ The new african american women that's part of Justin Credible's gang is from the NWA. Her name in the NWA was Jazzmyn. She is a very close friend of Rod Price.

~ Masato Tanaka is all but done in ECW. He didn't leave on bad terms, or had anything bad to say about ECW. He is just homesick, and would rather wrestle in Japan.


~ There is some turmoil between ECW and FWM. This is because of the fact Candido and Tammy no showed the FMW show in November. Also, because of the fact that Tanaka's paperwork was not done. Sabu was upset over this, and didn't want to disrespect FMW or his uncle The Sheik. Sabu's reputation means alot to him. Sabu almost quit ECW, but then changed his mind.


~ Paul Heyman is going to market Sid to the fullest. Heyman believes that Sid could be a gold mine, and hopefully with his name value, will get higher PPV buy rates.

1/11/99

~ The ECW video game is still under production in Utah at the Iguana West headquarters. Acclaim owns Iguana West, and since they have lost their rights to produce anymore WWF games to THQ, look for them to officially produce the ECW game.
