WWF set for Ottawa and Montreal
Ottawa and Montreal's wrestling fans won't get much of a chance to drown in their tears when they find out the WWF shows, scheduled for September, have been postponed.

Nope. There will be tears of joy.

The WWF will announce during the next couple of days RAW -- the Monday night TV show which has pushed the WWF to elite status -- will be in Ottawa at the Corel Centre Oct. 15.

The next night, Oct. 16, the WWF will be in Montreal.

Both shows are not totally set in stone yet, according to WWF policy which requires all the T's to be crossed and i's to be dotted before they announce a show officially.

RAW, which is aired each Monday at 9 p.m. on TSN in Canada, has been to Ottawa once before, four years ago the night after the Bret Hart Survivor Series debacle in Montreal.

Much has changed since then. Stone Cold Steve Austin is the champion and will be the star attraction of RAW. The Rock is also scheduled to return to action soon and will likely also be on hand, along with a star-studded cast of WWF characters.

And with two pay-per-views, Invasion and SummerSlam, in the immediate future, there no doubt will be a couple of title changes before the wrestling show hits Ottawa.

No information has been released yet on when tickets will go on sale. But there should be an announcement later this week.

It's been a year and a half since the WWF visited Ottawa, so tickets should sell briskly.

The WWF will still do a RAW show Sept. 3 in Toronto.
