Tyson keeps rasslin' fans guessing


By GLENN COLE -- Toronto Sun
  Just what will Mike Tyson do tonight?

Will he turn on Shawn Michaels? Will he go along with De-Generation X and do his best to destroy fan favorite Stone Cold Steve Austin? Will he swing and miss and hit the wrong guy?

That's one of the mysteries that will have fan on the edge of their seats as Wrestlemania, arguably the best known of the major wrestling cards, goes tonight at Boston's FleetCenter (7 p.m., Viewer's Choice).

When WWF head honcho Vince McMahon hired Tyson earlier this year, he knew that it would attract more people to his pay-per-view audience. To McMahon's credit, he carefully has built up a little intrigue in the past couple of weeks, making fans wonder how close Tyson is to De-Generation X.

Michaels has a bad back and is expected to take a few months off after the battle tonight against Austin, who still is not 100% after Owen Hart dropped him on his neck last summer.

Having Austin as champion would create an inordinate number of twists and turns in the WWF championship saga, with both good guys and bad guys ready to challenge. In the WWF, Austin has no allies and doesn't seem to want any.

The Undertaker has no allies either and no one seems to know exactly where his match against his so-called brother Kane is going to go. The Undertaker, who like Austin is a fan favorite, vowed that he wouldn't battle his brother, but hey, the living dead can change their minds.

Hart, still nursing a sprained ankle, will try to wrest the European title back from Hunter Hearst Helmsley while Ken Shamrock is supposed to battle Rocky Maivia for the Intercontinental title.

There also may be an announcement on the site of Wrestlemania XV with Toronto apparently a leading candidate.
