Hi, I'm wondering if anybody here has received the brand new Observer newsletter? I was looking forward to this issue because its suppose to talk more about potential WrestleMania plans. Unfortunately, I will likely get it really late due to the holidays. I'm wondering if anybody can give me the scoop regarding something Meltzer is hyping in his preview. He says something about 5 major stars not in the company or not active being talked about for the show? Who is he talking about here and what are the chances of them being on the show? I assume he's talking about Steve Austin, The Rock, Mick Foley and a couple of others
Unfortunately, the earliest most in the U.S. get the WON is on Saturday. Because there's no mail on Saturday, we'll have to wait until Monday or later. Someone in the UK may have already gotten a Friday Observer though.
Wild guesses: Austin, Rock, Foley, Hogan, probably not Goldberg, probably Lesnar, and the dream match is Hogan vs. Austin.
I get mine Friday (I live in Los Angeles and here are the Wrestlemania plans. Vince wants Foley vs Flair, and they will talk to Rock in a week or two. Rock vs JBL is talked about right now. There is interst in Hogan, to do the HOF, and maybe to wrestle. Brock may be brought in vs. Show. Thats about it.
It's a pretty big step up from having Jeff Jarrett booking himself as champ, but Dusty can't do WORSE, right? On another plus, taping IMPACT bi-weekly and still paying them for both shows is a nice gesture AND it'll cut production costs.
