Nash down for the count

By TIM BAINES -- Ottawa Sun

 Every now and then, wrestling becomes real life. The chair shots are forgotten, the high-flying circus act becomes secondary. Despite all the training, all the attention to detail to avoid injuries, a mishap leaves a wrestler injured for real. In his first match back from injury, Kevin Nash went down again. Surgery to repair his left quadriceps muscle will sideline one of the nWo's kingpins for at least six months. The injury happened in a 10-man tag-team match on RAW, with Nash crumbling into a corner in pain.

  • The Rock finally has returned to WWE. He made his eagerly anticipated return on Smackdown!, with his acerbic wit taking Kurt Angle apart.

  • The nWo has issued an ultimatum to Triple H. He has been given two weeks to decide whether he should join the nWo -- "with us or against us." Our gut feeling is he says no to the nWo.

  • Former WCW/WWF star Jeff Jarrett brawled with members of the Tennessee Titans NFL team during a July 10 NWA show. The script called for a shoving match, but the Titans got wrapped up in the excitement and jumped over the rail to get at Jarrett.

  • Jesse Ventura was hospitalized earlier this week with a blood clot in his lung.

  • The main event at the July 21 Vengeance will be The Undertaker vs. Angle vs. The Rock.

  • Goldberg went on record this past week, saying he will return to the ring in 2002. The question is: Where?

  • Canadian WWE star Chris Jericho has signed a new contract, which should keep all the Jerichoholics happy.

  • A WWE show in Sarnia July 20 will mix RAW and Smackdown! talent. It's likely because a show scheduled for the same night in Battle Creek, Mich., was cancelled.

  • WWE will receive $3.5 million US from a TV watchdog group that published claims that a boy was imitating wrestlers when he killed a friend. In the settlement of a federal lawsuit, WWE also received an apology from Jim Lewis, the attorney who represented Lionel Tate during the boy's murder trial last year, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported. The Parents Television Council repeated Lewis' allegations in asking companies not to advertise with WWE. It also put out a videotape blaming the company for the death of a youngster. The suit also sought millions from Lewis, but the settlement requires only his apology. Jerry McDevitt, the WWE's attorney, confirmed the terms of the settlement.

  • Scriptwriter Vince Russo quit WWE after just a couple of days. Now he has resurfaced with Jarrett's NWA group.

  • The Jamie Noble-Nidia trailer park trash skit is funny.
