Wrestling Saturday / December 15
- Rikishi Phatu agreed to work for the Heartland Wrestling group, the farm system for the WWF, this past week. While in the ring in a six-man tag against Russ Mc Cullough, he demonstrated very poor sportsmanship. Mc Cullough blew two spots with Rikishi, who ended the match by sitting on Mc Cullough and refusing to get up. There were little to no words spoken between Rikishi and the Heartland wrestlers after the show, as Rikishi left the building in a huff.
- Vince Mc Mahon has cracked the Famous 15 of Forbes Magazine, landing @ # 12. The list honors tycoons known to the general public. Ted Turner also made the list, coming in @ # 11. Ouch !!!
- Dean Malenko will not return to active ring wars, despite his recent stint with Heartland Wrestling. Malenko will work as a road agent for the WWF.
