Wrestling Saturday / March 24
The WWF re-entered discussions with WCW three weeks ago, unknown to Fusient Media. At that point, due to exclusivity with Viacom, the Turner Networks had to be dropped from any settlement. When Fusient attempted to negotiate further, the potential buyers had already informed Turner, and a cover story was planted to make it appear that TBS/TNT was axing wrestling programming. WWF CEO Linda Mc Mahon said yesterday that the creative teams from both companies are rewriting Mon Nitro. The WWF has reserved satellite time and plans to have at least three of its wrestlers @ the Mon Nitro event. There is also talk of some segments being simulcasted.
