WWF a fool to Goldust
By BRET "THE HIT MAN" HART -- For the Calgary Sun

  They say anything can happen in the WWF, but this thing with Marlena is carrying it too far! Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse, it did!
 Dude Love meets Brian Pillman at tomorrow's Badd Blood pay-per-view and I hope Dude beats Pillman so sore that he leaves Marlena alone! When these two fought at the beginning of the Intercontinental Title Tournament, Pillman escaped with the victory due to Goldust's so called interference. Now Commissioner/Sergeant Slaughter has decided that in order to keep Goldust from getting involved, they're going to handcuff him to a ring post throughout the entire match!
 Goldust has agreed to this bizarre twist on the condition that if Dude Love wins, Goldust gets five minutes in the ring with Pillman! I have no idea where Marlena is supposed to be while Goldust is handcuffed to the ring post but Monday night, on Raw, Dustin and Terry will be allowed to reunite and in celebration they've said they'll renew their wedding vows. I'd think twice about that if I were Dustin! I mean, why was Marlena willing to go along with this when Pillman said that Dakota is his?

 The finals in the Intercontinental Title Tournament will happen tomorrow at Badd Blood and a new intercontinental champion will be crowned. I have an official WWF press release that says Stone Cold Steve Austin is being required, as current intercontinental champion, to make an appearance at Badd Blood to hand over the belt to the new champion.
 I don't really understand that because Austin already forfeited the title and doesn't have the belt any more. In fact, Vince just said on Raw that Austin forfeited both the IC and tag titles so I'm not sure what's up with this but I wouldn't be surprised to see Stone Cold in St. Louis. Talk in the locker room is that on Oct. 8, Austin is going for an MRI of his neck to determine if he can ever wrestle again. Yeah, Austin is one tough SOB but I'd like to see him back in action 'cause I have unfinished business with him. If he decides to come back without the doctor's approval, which I don't think he'll get, then he'll have to sign a "hold harmless agreement" releasing the WWF from all responsibility from any injuries he might sustain in the ring. If that's what he chooses to do, and I think it will be, then Stone Cold might be back in unsanctioned matches as soon as Oct. 18!

 The injury list is long again. Bulldog was pulled off the road because of the heinous way Shawn Michaels and Hunter Hearst Helmseley two-on-oned his knee at One Night Only.
 The British Bulldog has never been short in the guts department! He'll still be tagging up with me at Badd Blood against Vader and Patriot but his knee won't be anywhere near 100% -- and neither is mine! This is going to be one of the toughest challenges ever for the Hitman and the Bulldog! Fighting a really big guy like Vader and carrying all that weight on injured knees is going to be really tough! The thing Bulldog and I have going for us is history.
 We've tagged up before, We've faced each other before. We've got teamwork and timing. We decided not to delay this match because we want to make Vader pay for breaking the Canadian flag over his knee! Contrary to the propaganda the WWF has been putting out, I never defaced the American flag!

 Another thing. They keep on saying that Patriot beat me on Raw -- but they conveniently forget to mention that I was kicking the Patriot's butt from one end of the ring to the other until Shawn Michaels stuck his runny nose into my business again! Patriot only won by DQ! He's never beat me yet and he's not going to beat me at Badd Blood!

 Ken Shamrock has been off the road with a serious lung infection that had him coughing up blood on Raw. He'll be back to team up with LOD against three members of the Nation of Domination at Badd Blood. This won't be the first time Animal and Hawk face a Faarooq-led faction. At Wrestlemania 13, the Legion of Doom teamed up with Ahmed Johnson, who is now an ex-member of NOD, in a Six-man Chicago Street Fight. LOD won that one but NOD has always said it was a fluke and they're out to prove it at Badd Blood. We don't know which three members of NOD will step up against LOD because by then Rocky or Faarooq might be IC champion!
 Ahmed Johnson has the worst luck when it comes to injuries.
 On Raw last week he slashed open his hand on an exposed nail sticking out of the announcer's table! Not only is the cut deep and wide but there are severed tendons and some nerve damage! Ahmed has very little feeling in the ring finger of his right hand and none at all in his little finger!
 The Headbangers defend the tag titles against the Oh-God-winns tomorrow. Whatever you want to say about the boys in skirts, one thing is that they don't hide behind the belts! They'd better watch out for Uncle Cletus!
 The WWF's Badd Blood pay-per-view is tomorrow night on Viewer's Choice.
