Hitman slams McSorley for stick swing


By RYAN PYETTE -- Winnipeg Sun

 Bret "The Hitman" Hart doesn't think disgraced hockey player Marty McSorley is a very sharp shooter.

 Especially after the suspended Boston Bruins defender whacked Vancouver's Donald Brashear in the head Monday.

 "What's that, Marty's seventh suspension," said Hart angrily. "How many lessons does he need?

 "I thought it was negligent, and it's pretty damn close whether or not the cops should get involved.

 "My son plays hockey and if he ever dreamed of getting to the NHL, or got there, and somebody hit him with a stick in the head and ended it, I'd be irate."

 There shouldn't be any hockey-stick-swinging goons at Winnipeg's first-ever World Championship Wrestling card tonight, 7:30 at the Arena.

 But don't rule out the possibility.

 With Hart sidelined and Chris "The Canadian Crippler" Benoit's defection to the WWF last month, the main event for tonight has changed to Sid Vicious butting heads with the "Total Package" Lex Luger in a battle for WCW supremacy.

 In other matches, the mysterious Vampiro grapples with the guitar-toting Jeff Jarrett, Curt Hennig faces Buff 'The Stuff' Bagwell, who flaps his gums and flexes his muscles with great regularity, and the Harris Boys tangle with Rick Steiner and his partner, the ancient Mike Rotunda in tag-team action.

 Also on tap, Kidman, who's kind of a junior Bret Hart, takes on F.K.A. Prince for the cruiserweight crown, "Knobs" goes head-to-head with Norman Smiley in a no-holds-barred, Hardcore title bout, while Irish nationalist Fit Finlay tries to stomp out another brick in the Wall.
