Bekah - No, Sam and Frodo did not wrestle for the Ring. You may be thinking of the time when Frodo collapsed and couldn't stop his own hand from trying to put it on and asked Sam to help him. Sam...

No MAN can kill a Nazgul - the prophecy said nothing about hobbits or women...which is probably why the Merry/Eowyn combo worked so well. smilies/tongue.gif

I'm not worried that they'll cut it entirely - the pic of Sam wielding the Phial and Sting assures me of that. I'm only concerned that they'll chop it up into little pieces and make it PJ's fanfic...
