The Outsider




Another week, another column. Let's just say the WWF caught everyone's attention Monday night and I can't wait to see how this HHH/Rikishi angle plays out over the next couple of weeks. The only weak link in the chain is HHH injury everyone's a buzz about.

Speaking of angles.... what exactly will Kurt's angle be in all of this. I still believe that there will be some sort of payoff in the long run in relation to the whole HHH/Angle/Steph thing... but I really hope it isn't a reformation of the corporation or something like that.

Conspicuous by their absense last week was Godsmack. Kind of a shame really becasue while I've seen them live multiple times I was eager to see my hometown boys performing something off the new album. Oh well... someday... which just takes me back to last week and getting screwed out of seeing Slipknot on Heat. Hey! Will we ever get the scheduled musical guests?

I haven't heard anything about next weeks guest which might just be a good thing now that I think of it...

Otherwise, it was a really strong week for the WWF so far. Good story line development and increasing angles... which is more then I can say for WCW. But let me just be honest, I'm not going to make any judgements until I literally sit down and start watching the product again... and I just can't bring myself to do that right now. At least those rediculous WWF buying WCW stories will be put to a rest for now since WWF seems to have pulled out of the running.

In the music world.... Pantera cancelled their fall tour after Phil Anselmo broke some ribs. If you head over to though they already have some 2001 tour dates up. As a result (I called it first) Kittie is going out on tour alone. Those shows will definately kick ass and all I can say right now is that I haven't been able to get any tour info as of today, but they already had a show scheduled for Nov. 18 at the Palladium in Worcester, MA. Go see this band, you will not regret it.

That's who should show up on Heat next week. Kittie.... and Lita could be the special guest. Which inadventantly brings me to the RTC. I like an angle as much as the next guy but I just can't bring myself to like this group. I'm bored everytime they they show up... but maybe that means they're doing something right since I am getting pissed off. But then again, I can't stand Regal either... so to each his own.

I can't wait to get a copy of the latest WWF game on Playstation or Dreamcast... but tell me... has anyone out there played the UFC game? It looked to be a nice solid wrestling game but I never really heard anything about it. Drop me a line and let me know.

Otherwise, I'm going to keep this short this week as I'm actually in the midst of fighting off a bad cold.
