Meltzer on WWF payroll?

Bruce claims that Dave was paid to leak information to the WWF(or E perhaps as he doesn’t say what year this was) and give them favourable reviews in the Observer.

Dave addressed this nonsense on the Sunday radio show, and Bruce is full of crap. Dave also corrected a bunch of other misinformation that was on the show as well, like "Bret was going to show up the next day on Nitro if we didn’t get the title off him."
