Hollywood standing in Flair's path to the top

By MR.X -- Ottawa Sun
  PARTS UNKNOWN -- Ric Flair has talked the talk and he's walked the walk.

But until tomorrow night's SuperBrawl, on pay-per-view at 8 p.m., we won't know if he can once again stand on top of the pedestal -- as the WCW world champion.

Standing in Flair's way is Hollywood Hogan.

SuperBrawl is a solid card on paper. But the WCW bookers have long been victims of Murphy's Law. What can go wrong usually does. Also on the card: Diamond Dallas Page vs. Scott Steiner; Scott Hall vs. Roddy Piper; Goldberg vs. Bam Bam Bigelow; and Kevin Nash and Lex Luger vs. Rey Mysterio and Konnan in a hair vs. mask match. If Nash and Luger lose, Elizabeth has to shave her head. Look for Mysterio to turn on Konnan.

AROUND THE WWF: The Rock is the WWF champ again, defeating Mankind in a ladder match, with some help from Paul Wight (formerly known as the Giant in WCW). Wight interfered in Stone Cold Steve Austin's cage match win over Vince McMahon the previous night at St. Valentine's Day Massacre. Wight will ref the match between Rock and Austin at WrestleMania ... Shane McMahon won the European title, setting up a WrestleMania match against X-Pac ... Val Venis won the intercontinental belt, then dumped main squeeze Ryan Shamrock ... Sable has begun a heel turn ... Bob Holly has won the hardcore title, defeating Al Snow in a terrific match that wound up with both wrestlers in a freezing-cold river ... Butterbean and Bart Gunn will soon meet in a Brawl For All match ... The highlights of the next RAW, taped last Tuesday: The introduction of Public Enemy, the return of Dr. Death Steve Williams (wearing a mask) and Kane vs. Undertaker ... The Undertaker said he's answering to a greater power. Who is that? ... The countdown is on to Sable's Playboy cover appearance. It's just a couple of weeks away.

WCW BITS: Fitness babe Torrie Wilson is the sexy blond who made a mysterious appearance on Nitro a week ago ... Nitro is in Toronto March 29 and in Kitchener March 30.... Flair was abducted on Nitro last week by Eric Bischoff and his group of nWo clowns.
