Wrestling Reality # 24 with Dr. Mike - Sting, Tim White, WWE propoganda and more

Wrestling Reality # 24 - Discussion on the propaganda machine going full tilt on RAW overseas, Jimmy Valiant's great new book "Whoa Daddy, Have Mercy" available at jimmyvaliant.com, injury report, did Jack Brisco deck Carlito Colon, Tim White sick angle, Sting in TNA and more.

In February 2004, Guerrero became the second wrestler of Hispanic heritage(Pedro of course the first) to be WWE champion when he defeated Lesnar, a former University of Minnesota wrestling standout. Guerrero lost the title four months later which was roundly booed backstage..
In May 2004, UPN aired the Weep's(and man, are we doing that now) special "Cheating Death, Stealing Life: The Eddie Guerrero Story." The one-hour program chronicled his childhood and his struggle with drug addiction that nearly cost him his job, family and life before his recovery and eventual gain of the WWE championship although we all groaned when the belt was taken off him far too soon, and given to a stooge like JBL.

OFF TO AFGHANISTAN
- The RAW Superstars along with Vince McMahon and a very limited number
of WWE crew will be arriving in Afghanistan tomorrow for a two day trip
to meet US troops based in the region and also hold a RAW taping that
will air on Monday December 19th on USA Network. This will be the third
'Tribute To The Troops' special that WWE will be holding, with the first
two being in Iraq. During these two days, all of the Superstars and
those involved will eat, drink, sleep and spend the day the way the
troops do. There are no expensive Marriott or Hyatt hotels this time
around as everyone will experience two days in the life of an American
soldier. This is the first trip for most of the guys as the previous two
years only Smackdown! Superstars traveled to the warzones of Iraq.
MSNBC's Rita Cosby will cover the tour on her show, live from
Afghanistan.

> ANOTHER MOVIE FOR THE ROCK
- The Rock's movies may not be box office hits, but the former WWE
champion is still running on full schedule when it comes to making
movies. Recently The Rock has been linked and is expected to sign with
Disney for the movie title 'Daddy's Girl' from producers Mark Ciardi and
Gordon Gray. There's still no director or co-stars attached to the
movie, which is scheduled to start filming in the beginning of next
year. The movie is about an American football quarterback who enjoy life
with ladies and big lifestyle who all of a sudden has to take care of a
five year old girl. MTV.COM has an article, with quotes from The Rock
himself about this movie which you can read at

FORMER WWE SUPERSTAR RETURNS
- Eddie Fatu - better known to fans as Jamal of Three Minute Warning -
has signed again for WWE and is expected to return to action after he
finishes his current commitments to other wrestling promotions. Fatu,
who is also Rikishi's brother, was released from his contract in 2003
due to personal problems. He along with Rosey were popular in their
'Three Minute Warning' role attacking females, midgets and anything that
runs into them. With Eric Bischoff, they successfully completed one of
the most talked about angles a couple of years ago on Smackdown! ruining
the Chuck and Billy gay wedding which made the national headlines. Jamal
on that day did the Samoan Drop on then General Manager Stephanie
McMahon.

CHARLOTTE NEWSPAPER DIGS UP MORE GOSSIP ON FLAIR
- The Charlotte Observer is continuing to digging up the dirt on Ric
Flair, now coming out with the story that Flair owed the federal
government $1 million in 1997, according to a statement from his
accountant. The IRS began taking from Flair's salary this year, seizing
more than $200,000 so far. Regarding his divorce case, there's also a
letter from the judge ruling that Flair must pay his soon to be ex wife
$20,000 a month until the case is settled, based on their previous
living expenses. The judge also says she'll consider freezing the
couple's assets until the case is decided, because Flair used money from
a retirement account "to get $92,000 for his girlfriend's finger." The
