Wrestling Challenge

I look at Chris Benoit's death and what it means for the future of pro wrestling in this week's North Star column. Jonathan Last has more:

"The logic of this investigation may well propel us to a point where (1) Lawmakers get involved and attempt to clean up the industry and/or the publicly-held WWE comes under enormous pressure to get rid of its majority owners (the McMahon family). At this point, I'd say that both outcomes are possible, and maybe even likely. And judging from the WWE's behavior in recent days, I suspect that they have a similar read of the situation."
Then there's this weird Wikipedia story. Who the hell knows what the deal is with that.

UPDATE: Five words: Ultimate Warrior on "Hannity and Colmes." Tonight. The fact that he's batshit-insane might normally dissuade the show from booking such a guest, but then again this is the same program that hosts Ann Coulter roughly once a week.

UPDATE II: I guess technically it's six words, but I wasn't counting the "and." At any rate, in a development that should shock no one who has followed his career, Warrior no-showed the Fox interview. Which means we got THREE segments of both Mark Fuhrman and Debra Marshall (the ex-wife of both Steve McMichael and Stone Cold Steve Austin.)

That's six words...unless you don't count "Colmes." Which makes sense, I guess.
