Sources close to WWF Old School officials have reported that a number of WWF Superstars were suspended today for egregious federation by-law violations. WWF Old School would not comment on the nature of these violations other than to confirm several WWF Superstars had been suspended and new competitors had been signed.
The following WWF Superstars have been suspended indefinitely: Triple H, Kurt Angle, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Batista, and The Rock. As a result of these suspensions, WWF Old School has announced some match and division changes:
- The Red Rooster will automatically take Kurt Angle‘s place in the World #1C Tourney next month.
- Bruno Sammartino, who placed 2nd in the World Qualifier A match behind Steve Austin, is now declared the winner and will take on Don Muraco in a Relegation Match.
- Randy “Macho Man” Savage, who lost to the now suspended Batista, will get a shot at the InterCon Championship next week.
- Due to the removal of The Rock and Batista, the final two competitors in the InterCon Battle Royal will automatically be placed in the InterCon #1C Tourney next month. The competitors finishing 3rd to 5th will take on Hillbilly Jim, Irwin R. Schyster, and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat in Relegation matches respectively.
WWF Old School officials also announced the signing of these competitors to singles competition: Bob Backlund, Corporal Kirchner, Diesel, Doink the Clown, Papa Shango, the Repo Man, Shawn Michaels (although he will also continue to compete for The Rockers), and Tatanka.
