Pgs. 2 and 3 features top stories including Jim Crockett Jr. fired from promotion he once owned, Nick Patrik in a car wreck, and Jesse Ventura-KFAN war grabs news media's attention... Pgs. 4 and 5 features the News & Analysis section with the latest from the WWF, WCW, GWF, USWA, and more... Pgs. 6-8 features the "Ringside Beat" report on house shows including WCW in Los Angeles headlined by Sting vs. Rick Rude, WCW in Winston-Salen headlined by Sting vs. Rude, the USWA in Nashville with Koko B. Ware vs. Kimala, the WWF in Nashville headlined by Roddy Piper vs. Rick Martel, plus more... Pg. 9 features Eric Krol's column on the WWF scandals... Pgs. 10 and 11 features reader letters on the Larry King LIve WWF scandal episode plus a Torch Top Ten List on Jushin Liger's Pet Peeves...
