Souled Out Preview
Tomorrow night is WCW's first pay-per-view of the year, and with the rumors being posted, there could be a few issues on the horizon.

Kevin Nash was apparently distressed over the outcome of their match, and now it appears that the result has changed.
WCW added the Steiners to the Wolfpack as it became apparent that Hall was not reliable as a wrestler on a day to day basis. It remains to be seen what will become of Hall, as his whereabouts are still unknown.
Vice President of WCW, Eric Bischoff talked with TWR Friday afternoon, and discussed the Bret Hart signing, calling it "a big step for WCW
." Bischoff also discussed potential layoffs. "There will be roster cuts, production cuts, but it will all be trimming of fat. There is alot of untapped resources, just sitting around not providing anything to our product. We are also looking at a way to add the money necessary to move forward with a secondary program. Thunder is still a big possibility, but it would require a better allocation of resources. We have done a great job of fixing our issues, and expect an announcement sometime next week regarding our roster, programming, and production crew.
Card is finalized!
