  One of the most aniticipated episodes of WWE's "Monday Night Raw" each year is their "Old School" episode, where they go retro with old-style graphics and appearances from several retired wrestler. This year's episode, which airs tonight at 8 p.m. PT on USA, is no different. WWE legends Ric Flair, Mae Young, Honky Tonk Man, Sgt. Slaughter, Million Dollar Man, Dusty Rhodes, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, New Age Outlaws and Mean Gene Okerlund will return for the show, and there will probably be a few surprises along the way. But there's one guy everyone wants to see return tonight: The Undertaker.

Hacksaw Jim Duggan normally expresses himself with elbows to the chin, knees to the groin or a poke in the eyes. When all else fails, he uses a two-by-four. But the 300-pound former football player turned professional wrestler sounds poetic when it comes to explaining his somewhat unusual profession. "Your heart starts pumping. The hair stands on the back of your neck," he said. "You get butterflies in your stomach. The bell rings and you go back to your instincts."

HARRY CONNICK JR. "25" Columbia * * 1/2 HARRY CONNICK JR. "Eleven" Columbia * * 1/2 Connick just doesn't get it. He still seems to think he's an exceptional jazz pianist, but he's really just adequate. His real strength is his 1940s-style crooning. But his new album "25" too often showcases his solo piano playing at the expense of his crooning. His other new one, "Eleven," also features Connick the jazz pianist. This one, though, was recorded when he was 11, in 1978.

Gardeners who like a touch of the exotic need not despair in these water-conscious times. Many of Earth's loveliest flowers can get by with less. Take sparaxis, a group of bulbs -- underground stems called corms, to be precise -- that hails from South Africa. It grows to about a foot high and can be so alluring, it will have you crouching for a closer look. The coppery-apricot flowers of Sparaxis elegans are intricately painted: Their purple centers are rimmed with yellow spots edged in black.

Question: What South African bulbs do you recommend planting in Southern California? Are there any that will naturalize, and what conditions do they require to thrive? R.S., La Habra Answer: Southern California's Mediterranean climate--winter rainfall and summer drought--provides the conditions South African bulbs prefer. Such bulbs generally bloom in late winter and spring, but should be planted now through early fall.

So few people turned out for the World Wrestling Federation's Superstars of Wrestling match at UC Irvine's Bren Events Center on Saturday that almost everyone who did show up was able to get a ringside seat. But, though they may be small in number, Orange County's wrestling fans are big in enthusiasm. The event was part of the WWF's buildup for Wrestlemania IV, the annual event that features the group's preeminent personalities.

ARTIST Robert Irwin, designer of the Central Garden at the Getty Center, sits on a small curved bench in the dappled shade of London plane trees he chose. In the 10 years since the garden opened, the trees haven't quite created the canopy Irwin envisioned, but they will -- just without him around.

Don Nielsen really likes babiana. These South African bulbs are easy to grow, yet attract plenty of attention when they bloom every March in his Huntington Beach garden. "There aren't many plants that take so little care, yet put on such a tremendous show," said Nielsen, who grows babiana in containers, which he places around his hot tub. "For bulbs, babiana flowers are long lasting--blooming for two to three weeks or longer," he said. "And the flower colors are so vivid.

As if the real world weren't grim enough. . . . Just in case you weren't experiencing sufficient gloom and pessimism. . . . On the off chance you weren't feeling fear and jitters all the time. . . . Well, has television got something swell for you. Yes, friends, from the folks who give you murder and mayhem in peace time, you lucky suckers are now getting more--much, much more--murder and mayhem in wartime.

Saturday night at the Sports Arena, with 8,000 screaming fans of the World Wrestling Federation. This is the other San Diego County, the one not mentioned in tourist brochures or Chamber of Commerce ads or the intro-jingles to television news shows. Forget the beach, the zoo and nouvelle cuisine. This is shot-and-a-beer San Diego, hard muscle and hard luck, east of state college, and south of downtown.
