WWF storylines lacking creativity
By MR. X -- Ottawa Sun
 The WWF seems to have hit a wall ... and the lingering concussion seems to have scrambled its creative brain. The storylines we're getting these days just don't cut it on an entertainment level. There seems to be something missing, that edge that pushed the WWF to huge ratings successes less than a year ago. We need more surprises, too much of what is happening is predictable. Returning Stone Cold Steve Austin to fan favourite might be a start. And bringing in someone with charisma -- where's Ric Flair when you need him -- would provide a much-needed boost.

  • Austin will get a title shot tomorrow night on RAW, facing Kurt Angle.

  • Molly Holly is now Mighty Molly, The Hurricane's sidekick.

  • Edge will be signing autographs Oct. 15, the day of the RAW show in Ottawa, at Pizza Pizza, 1967 Portobello Blvd. Speaking of RAW, you can count on the Sun to bring you wall-to-wall coverage, literally. Watch for an awesome preview of the event in the Oct. 10 Sun.

  • Val Venis is awaiting a new gimmick and will return to action within the next couple of weeks.

  • Maven and Nidea were the Tough Enough winners. Maven was squashed by Tazz this past week.

  • Helen Hart, who was in a coma for a week, has begun to show signs of recovery.

  • Forbes magazine has named the 400 richest Americans. Forbes estimates Vince McMahon is worth $700 million, more than halfway to billionaire status. This year, the WWF boss is charted at 364th place. He has moved down 104 spots since last year, trailing major industry moguls and, of course, lags way behind America's richest man, software king Bill Gates.
