best-selling author Kevin Sullivan is featuring a number of extra excerpts that didn't make his "The WWE
Championship" book over at Kevinsullivanbooks.com. His latest features extra quotes with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin
on his final run as the WWE Champion - the same night Chris Jericho
became the first ever Undisputed Champion. "I remember being very fried. That was a complete phone-in job and I didn't even phone it in; hell, I got hung up on. That was one of my worst performances ever. I'm honest enough to say that I didn't really give a s--t what happened that night. And it wasn't about losing the belt either, because I really like Jericho I consider him a friend. It didn't have anything to do with anybody in the ring. I was just totally frazzled, I was running hard in every direction and I just wanted that night to be over. I definitely didn't need the belt at that time because I was too damn tired. We were running hard. I was living pretty fast. I was physically and mentally scrambled. I don't have a lot of memories of that match other than I stunk."
-- Roy Sutherland sent word that Sin Cara has been removed from the WWE SummerSlam poster. R-Truth is now replacing him. As for Sin Cara's status with WWE following his 30 day suspension, a number of people within WWE are under the impression that the company has decided to "cut bait on him." The writing team wasn't told until a day or two before the Money in the Bank PPV last Sunday that he needed to be written out and were also told to not "put any thought into any scenarios for him going forward." It should be noted that it wasn't made clear he was being released, but the tone seemed to indicate it. Cara was expected to talk with WWE late last week.
