World Mag News and Review

Wal-Mart flung a degrading World Wrestling Federation action figure out of the retail ring last week. The toy is modeled after Al Snow, a World Wrestling Federation star who as part of his shtick carries a female mannequin's head onto the wrestling stage.

The wrestling doll carried a female doll's head with "Help Me" scrawled backward across its forehead. Sabrena Parton, a professor at Kennesaw State (Ga.) University, complained to the company, as did one Wal-Mart store manager, and they got action.

The marketing guru for the WWF claimed not to comprehend the uproar. Said WWF's Jim Byrne: "Al Snow's act with the mannequin head is as silly as it gets-loads of fun."
