Maybe this isn't really wrestling and belongs under a different heading, but I thought this was funny. From the WWF Page-a-Day calendar, today, January 18th, it says,
"The Super Bowl may be on the horizon, but that's just the beginning for gridiron fans. Get ready for the return of the XFL, which starts its second season next month! Old-fashioned smashmouth football is back, with all the advantages of modern media technology. Last year's debut took the sports world by storm, and this year the XFL looks to rise to new heights. Be a part of it every weekend on NBC, UPN, and TNN!"
Well, I guess since it's canceled, it can only go up, so these "new heights" are reachable. And I don't remember anything being taken by storm. I do remember Lorne Michaels going nuts because of a half hour overrun by an XFL game, and thus costing SCSA a chance at hosting SNL. I just thought this was an interesting entry for the calendar.

Steve Austin: -Went to WWF in 1996 after runs in WCW & ECW as The Ringmaster, changed gimmick to "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and took off as a rebellious hellraiser. Helped make wrestling mainstream. Good worker, good actor, good look.
