Fall Brawl has Perfect ending


By MR. X -- Ottawa Sun
  PARTS UNKNOWN -- It was the Perfect betrayal, done with Flair.

In a turn not totally unexpected (but then again, when is anything ever well conceived in the WCW these days?), Curt Hennig (the former Mr. Perfect) backstabbed his Four Horsemen mates, including Ric Flair, and joined the new world order stable at Sunday's Fall Brawl. Sting, the forgotten hero, dashed in to make the save ... too little, too late.

Among the other highlights at Fall Brawl was Diamond Dallas Page and Lex Luger over Macho Man Savage and Scott Hall.

GOODBYE TO LEGENDS: Sad to hear two wrestling legends have died -- Bulldog Brower, 64, and Fritz Von Erich, 68.

AROUND THE WWF: Tonight's One Night Only show from the UK is available on Viewer's Choice, at 8 p.m. The main event is British Bulldog vs. Shawn Michaels ... Monday's RAW is WAR from Madison Square Garden is getting a huge push. Should be a biggie ... The Godwinns' manager, Uncle Cletus, was T.L. Hopper in a previous wrestling life ... Speculation is Ahmed Johnson and Owen Hart will meet in the Intercontinental title final ... After Marlena is done her 30-day stint as Brian Pillman's personal manager, don't be surprised to see her turn on hubbie Goldust ... Sgt. Slaughter is the guest ref for the upcoming Michaels vs. Undertaker match at the Badd Blood pay-per-view ... The New Blackjacks have split ... Pencil in Ottawa for a tentative May 22 show. Hamilton will host a RAW Jan. 12 ... Stone Cold Steve Austin kept his stunner streak alive last Monday by felling Jerry Lawler. Look for Vince McMahon to taste the mat during the next RAW ... Owen Hart has a restraining order for Austin to stay away but it didn't work too well last week.

WCW BITS: Rick Martel is back and John Nord (The Berzerker) had a trial.
