Vince McMahon would like to categorically state that Barry Horowitz is not an employee of the World Wrestling Federation and we do not endorse his actions. 

 

Also, Konnan has to be thinking, I left main eventing in AAA for this?

Fun stuff, setting up next week and slowly building up all the characters. From some weird reason, I don't completely trust Konnan.

Kinda weird to see Rick Martel facing a team called the Supermodels knowing that this was an idea of his for a last WWF run that didn't come.
