WCW stuck in the stone age


By MR. X -- Ottawa Sun
  PARTS UNKNOWN -- While the World Wrestling Federation continues to spin the riveting Stone Cold Steve Austin-Vince McMahon feud, World Championship Wrestling trots out Jurassic Park.

It's too bad WCW had to ruin a respectable Halloween Havoc show last Sunday with a battle that may have worked about 10 million years ago -- Hollywood Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior.

Hogan won the battle when his real-life nephew Horace Boulder cracked Warrior with a chair. That ending followed an endless stream of blunders that included just one wrestling move and a missed spot where Hogan was supposed to throw fire into Warrior's eyes; all of which cast the audience into a deep sleep.

If there was a saving grace, it was that Hogan-Warrior was not the last match of the night.

The Goldberg-Diamond Dallas Page showdown was superb with Goldberg retaining his championship.

In other matches: Jerricho beat Raven; Wrath beat Meng; Disco Inferno beat Juventud Guerrera and then lost to Kidman; Alex Wright beat Fit Finlay; Saturn beat Lodi; Buff Bagwell turned on his partner Rick Steiner in a match against Scott Steiner and the Giant, but Rick Steiner managed to grab the tag-team title singlehandedly when Giant missed a drop kick off the top rope (Steiner took on Kenny Chaos as his new partner the next night); Rick Steiner then beat his brother Scott in a singles match; Scott Hall won by countout over Nash; Bret Hart beat up on Sting.

AROUND THE WWF: The Austin-McMahon feud was taken to another level on RAW when Shane McMahon announced he had signed Stone Cold to a new contract. Shane's act was convincing as he stood up to his dad ... On RAW, Kane demolished both Gangrel and Christian, who were saved by Edge ... Look for Austin in Rolling Stone magazine late this month and he'll appear at the Billboard Music Awards Dec. 7 ... Chyna will be missing for a few weeks following cosmetic surgery to fix her jaw ... One of the funniest RAW bits was Mankind's Mr. Socko and Al Snow's Head winding up in each other's hands following a match against the New Age Outlaws ... There are still plenty of tickets left for the Nov. 8, 7:30 p.m., extravaganza at the Corel Centre. The main event is a Fatal Four Way match involving Austin, Undertaker, Kane and Mankind. The Rock faces Val Venis with several other solid matches on the card. And, yes!!!!! Sable will be here.

WCW BITS: Diamond Dallas Page is the new U.S. champ ... British Bulldog has quit ... Dennis Rodman is suing WCW, claiming he is owed more money for his work a few months back.
