Hitman zeroes in on belt


By MR. X -- Ottawa Sun
  PARTS UNKNOWN -- It's Canada vs. the U.S. when Brett Hart puts his WWF championship belt against The Patriot on the line tomorrow night at In Your House Ground Zero. The Hitman has to be the favorite with some interference likely.

Brian Pillman will fight Goldust and if he wins will get Marlena as his personal assistant for a month.

There is some question surrounding the Fatal Four-Way tag-team title match with Stone Cold Steve Austin apparently unable to wrestle with his partner Dude Love against the Godwinns, Legion of Doom and Owen Hart and the British Bulldog. One rumor has the Headbangers replacing Stone Cold and the Dudester, but there has been some thought that Vader will replace Austin.

Also on the card, Farooq will meet Savio Vega and Crush in a Louisville Street Fight. And the Undertaker will meet Shawn Michaels. Look for an appearance from Cain, the long-lost brother of Undertaker. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. with a replay on pay-per-view at 10. There will be re-runs Tuesday at 8 and 11 p.m.

AROUND THE WWF: Ahmed Johnson, out for the next month or two, could be forming his own army ... Is it too obvious for the WWF to turn Glen Jacobs (Dr. Isaac Yankem) into Cain? ... Tatanka, Yokozuna, Ludvig Borga and Butch Reed are all apparently WWF-bound. If Yoko and Borga join the Hart Foundation, a name change to the United Nations of Domination might be in order ... Rumors of an appearance by the Ultimate Warrior are again running rampant ... If Austin is out for a couple of months as speculated , when will he have to put his Intercontinental belt up for grabs?

WCW BITS: Hollywood Hogan has returned Sting's challenge ... Big Boss Man is back in the WCW as Ray Traylor, his real name. Now we know why he changed it in the first place ... Perry Saturn, one half of the highly-touted ECW Eliminators tag team, has bounced into the WCW.
