World Wrestling Federation News:
- WWF officials are said to be happy with how Jeff Jarrett’s debut went at SNME. It is expected that Jarrett will remain in the lower mid-card before being pushed up to the upper mid-card.
- The finals of the King of the Ring tournament will be the main event of the King of the Ring pay per view on June 13th.
- It is being rumored that WWF programming, RAW and Superstars, will be increased from an hour program to hour and half programs. If this were to happen, it would occur after SummerSlam in August.
- There have been talks about having RAW take place outside of Manhattan. The feeling is that RAW would remain mostly in the Northeast area, but they want to get out of the Manhattan Center sooner rather than later.
- In WCW news, Ron Simmons has been released from his contract. Apparently, Simmons was not happy with his position in the company since losing the WCW World Heavyweight Championship in December and asked for his release.
