Wrestling Tuesday / March 27
Shane Mc Mahon met with the talent @ WCW Nitro for 20 minutes before airtime last night. WCW will be run as a separate promotion, in competition to the WWF. There will be an inactive period for up to 8 weeks, after which WCW will appear on TNN. Bruce Pritchard & Gerald Brisco addressed the technical & production staff..... Vince thanked the WWF stars for their hard work & any role they had in the acquisition. He also said not to expect any interpromotional matches.... Eric Bischoff & Hulk HOG-an are in talks with the FOX network to begin a new national promotion.....Test looks to be the first WWF wrestler to cross over to Shane's WCW.....Did you notice the hidden shot Ric Flair gave to AOL-TW last night :
"You can't hold our lives in your hands."
So, we now have the young Mc Mahon with the control of WCW. This answers the question about the preservaton of the identity of the league...for now. After a period of time, we should see WCW on TNN, with cross-over talent exchange........
