Hot moves


Diversity is always good, in everything from financial portfolios to circles of friends. The World Wrestling Federation knows this better than just about anybody. It has conquered cable television, the toy industry, Playboy (with Chyna on the cover last month) and now the book market. After tasting much success with autobiographies by Mankind and The Rock, the wrestling empire recently released the Can You Take the Heat?: The WWF is Cooking! Cookbook, “authored” by ring announcer Jim “J.R.” Ross ($26 suggested, hardcover). All the WWF superstars provide their own favorite recipes and goofy anecdotes. Just check out some of these fine culinary gems: Rikishi’s Rump Roast, Stone Cold’s Rattlesnake Rib Rub, McMahon Millionaire Pie and Billy Gunn’s Grilled Bad Ass-paragus.
