I believe it was when Bischoff came out on RAW. Was it regarding this thread? If so, a search of the recaps around that time indicate it was Bischoff, but it looks like the recap was altered from what I remember.

Just my opinion and no offense, but I think you may have been over-estimating the importance of part-time, unpaid freelance IWC writers in the overall grand scheme of the professional wrestling business -- just a little bit.

Watch out now - you act like I did that EVERY week. I like to think I was a lot better at picking my spots...especially given that that was a WWF report.
Generally, I wholeheartedly agree that I had probably had a total impact hovering right around null when it came to the product, but let me turn this into doublespeak and note in my own defense that back in 1999, there WERE a lot of people who - rightly or wrongly - thought most of the WrestleManiacs crew had opinions worth noticing. Granted, most of those people were gullible idiots (not the least of which were the guys running SportsLine USA), but still...it wasn't NOTHING. (It was close. )
Re: Having Holly and Venis in TNM. The thought that struck me after I wrote that was "Who actually would sign Holly and Venis to a contract?" Of course, I probably run a very different TNM fed than everyone else. Re: The Kidman/Regal SSP.
