AIM: # 1 Posted on 12.1.06 1501.32 | Instant Rating: 5.57 An article on Yahoo's front page today talks about how Italian youth are crazy about WWE programming. Sadly, no mention of Nunzio as a beloved Italian hero... Yahoo (news.yahoo.com) A brief snippet Originally posted by Yahoo National soccer coach Marcello Lippi recently complained that home-grown talent risked drying up because children no longer played soccer in the streets as they were hooked on wrestling. In November, the muscle-bound heroes of World Wrestling Entertainment Inc's television shows toured Italy. The appearances sold out in a few days. "I prefer to watch wrestling than soccer because it's more dramatic; anything can happen," said Oliviero D'Ascanio, a 9-year-old schoolboy in Rome who, like his friends, also follows the behind-the-scenes storylines that come with the WWE product.

AIM: # 2 Posted on 12.1.06 1551.43 | Instant Rating: 3.69 You can always tell when the writer follows wrestling when he composes gems like this one: "Italian boys have new heroes: beefy, loud American wrestlers like Rey Mysterio and Undertaker." The beefy, gregarious Rey Rey. I guess they only get Smackdown in Italy...and they still like it? I just remembered that im absent minded wait i mean i lost my mind, i cant find it.

Spank E Bockwurst Since: 2.1.02 From: Plymouth, UK Since last post: 7 days Last activity: 3 hours # 4 Posted on 12.1.06 1740.28 | Instant Rating: 5.28 I refuse to accept that any nine-year-old boy in Italy prefers wrestling to soccer (boy, I hate using that term). Call me old fashioned, call me naive, call me whatever, but I just don't believe it.

I certainly couldn't place it.

Ah! That explains it. I still haven't watched that. Thanks.
On WWE.com there is an article saying that Jerry Jarrett has met with WWE, and ominously stating that he was not alone. Is Jeff Jarrett about to return to WWE?
