SLAM! Wrestling Review: By JOHN POWELL

WRESTLEMANIA On the road to a full-blown recovery which will see them dominate the Monday night ratings and become the strongest force in the pro wrestling industry, the WWF is well on its way by the time WrestleMania 13 rolls around. One hurdle is still in their way though. The federation's storylines are dominated by gang warfare with The Nation Of Domination and others getting in each other's faces. Once these angles are dropped, it's smooth sailing for the WWF right into a red-hot Austin - McMahon storyline. This WrestleMania is another mixed bag of the good and the bad. The bad, however, wins out. The good being Bret Hart and Steve Austin's bloodthirsty brawl and an amusing street fight between The Legion Of Doom, Ahmed Johnson and The Nation Of Domination. The rest are take-it-or-leave-it matches. The main event is a real snoozefest that puts a damper on the festivities.

Favourite Moments: Blood streaming out of Austin's face as Hart locks him in the Sharpshooter. The fun Street Fight.

Least Favourite Moments: The Godwinns at WrestleMania. Only seven matches! The washout of a tag team title match.

Rating: Poor.
