The WCW invasion continues
Hello, everyone, and welcome to this edition of Sheerah's Sharpshooter. It was a fairly interesting week in the wrestling world today. But the summer struck again, along with a weeks worth of company, and on top of that you put in the fact that this is a Holiday week, and you have zero time to do much. So, I can't promise that I'll be writing the best column in Sheerah's Sharpshooter history, especially since I didn't get to see Raw. But, however, I did read the results. But to make it up to you, at the end of my column, I'll give you a link that's sure to run shivers up and down Lars Ulrich's spine. As usual, it's Trivia time. And… WE HAVE A WINNER! This week's winner is the one… the only…
Congratulations to the winner! Now, here is this week's trivia:
Who managed the Undertaker when he won his first WWF World Title?
5)None of the above

I just don't get it, why must they chose Booker T? He's not the best competitor that WCW has, yeah, he can work the crowd, but that's just about it. Although, I'd hate to be Booker when Triple H comes back, if he says "Don't hate the player, hate the Game", then he'll REALLY be sorry. While searching the Newsboards, I today I found an article that said Vince didn't seem to be very happy with the Main Event, and he found it to, well, basically be boring. Well, of course it's boring, Arn Anderson and Scott Hudson did the commentary, and on top of that you have Buff Bagwell and Booker T. having a match. The people want to see Sting, Goldberg, Kevin Nash, they were the biggest grabbers in WCW… even though Nash was terrible out of shape, and Goldberg only knew five moves: Spear, Jackhammer, kick, funky-looking suplex, and, well, I'm sure if I thought hard enough I would find another one. Sting was basically the only one I could tolerate. With Booker T., well, you all know why I don't like that Rocky copy-cat. And Buff Bagwell, he just seems to have lost some of his flair. He's gone down in his wrestling ability, and charismatic nature. Although, I could be wrong on that. Considering that I didn't see Raw, or Smackdown, and I haven't seen him in action since WCW was on TNT. But my guess is that nothing much has changed since then. Then you put that mess together with the announcing team of Scott Hudson and Arn Anderson. I like Arn, really, I do. But believe it or not, I haven't heard him at the announcing table. He could be great, but I really don't know. But I'm guessing that if Vince wasn't pleased with him, he wasn't that good. Now, Scott Hudson, he's one guy I do know. He almost okay, but not quite. I don't like his announcing technique, and chances are I probably never will. What I wouldn't give to see Tony Schiavone, Larry Zbysco, and Bobby Heenan at a WWF annoucing booth. I know no one likes Tony, but he's the perfect person for Larry and Bobby to pick on, so why not add him into the mix? I think the WCW invasion may need some work, especially since they could be bringing back better people. For an invasion, you don't bring one or two wrestling, you bring the entire roster. Wouldn't it be something if at the end of the Invasion PPV, that Shane McMahon and the rest of WCW chased off the WWF and stood in the ring victoriously? Well, at least then we'd get to see Ric and David Flair, Sting, and Lance Storm again.
As I promised, I will now deliver a link to a web site that Lars Ulrich is probably unhappy with. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, here a little back history. Ulrich is the one that got some nice lawyer, and basically shut down the Napster Music Trading Community. To be quite frank, I can't blame him. That was his music, and even though I don't think Napster violated any current music laws at the time, it came awfully close to doing so. However, since Napster had their problems, the wonderful website known as UGO has made an Underground Guide to Napster Alternatives. In other words, a list of sites that are just about like Napster pre-lawsuit. So now you can continue to download your favorite songs. I haven't tried any of them yet, I have downloaded a few, but haven't gotten a chance sign up for them. These services are free, and they actually sound pretty good. For those of you who want to check out this site, just go to: http://www.ugo.com/channels/features/napsteralts/ Enjoy!
I think it's just about that time for me to have the infamous Quote of the Bi-month! I'm sure that there were some pretty good quotes on this past WWF Raw, but as previously stated, I didn't get to watch it. So I guess it's a good thing that I wrote down my favorite quote from last week's show. There were some pretty interesting ones, but only one really stuck out in my mind, and I thought it would be Quote of the Bi-months worthy. So, here is the Quote for this issue of Sheerah's Sharpshooter: "Yes, I know Kurt Angle is a dork. But he's a dangerous dork, and tonight he's your backup dork" - Vince McMahon Jr. talking to Stone Cold Steve Austin on the phone.
Well, everyone, I hate to cut my column short, but I've run out of time, and I really can't think of anything more to say since I didn't see Raw or Smackdown this past week. Next week I will be back to my normal schedule, and I may even have prize for one of my upcoming trivia contests! That all for this column, c-ya next time!
