Dark fate awaiting Austin?


By MR. X -- Ottawa Sun
  PARTS UNKNOWN -- Vince McMahon's Conspiracy Theory has more twists than a Chubby Checker revival concert.

And it's becoming a little more ghoulish each week.

Are the Undertaker and Kane in collusion?

All signs seem to point in that direction.

And that's disturbing news for WWF champion Stone Cold Steve Austin, who must defend his title at Summer Slam against the Undertaker.

Austin and the Undertaker lost their tag-team belts last Monday on RAW when the man from the dark side was pinned following a single choke slam from Kane.

And as we all know, the 'Taker has the ability to snap back to life after at least two or three slams. Look for the hijinks to continue at the next RAW, with Undertaker and Kane playing mind games with Austin. And look for Stone Cold to unleash a little wrath of his own on WWF owner Vince McMahon's stooges.



WWF BITS: You might have missed it because of the late baseball game if you tuned into RAW on TSN Monday night, but Val Venis revealed that John Wayne Bobbitt turned out the lights at just the right moment to save him from the sword of Yamaguchi-San ... Add a Jeff Jarrett vs. X-Pac hair vs. hair match to Summer Slam ... Forget about DeGeneration X splitting. In a hilarious bit on RAW, the members agreed they were all screw-ups and Chyna turned the other cheek on the audience (both cheeks actually) ...

The WWF is going ahead with a drunken Hawk angle ... Sable will arm wrestle Jackie on the next RAW ... The Brawl for All angle is taking heat for what is being widely reported as a fix last week. Did Bradshaw really beat Marc Mero last week? Expect more controversy in the Bradshaw vs. Darren Drozdov match ... Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, the Insane Clown Posse, may get a big push. They're a couple of rappers who also wrestle ... WWF Warzone, with sales skyrocketing for Sony Playstation, has been released for Nintendo 64. The game is getting fantastic reviews ... Dr. Death Steve Williams could be shelved for a couple of months.



AROUND THE WCW: Jay Leno teamed with Diamond Dallas Page to down Hollywood Hogan and Eric Bischoff in last weekend's Road Wild pay-per-view when Leno's bandleader, Kevin Eubanks, laid out Bischoff with a diamond cutter ...
