Storyline

One of WWE's final pay-per-views in the United Kingdom, took place in Manchester, England on October 26, 2002 at the Manchester Evening News Arena. Opening the show was Stephanie McMahon, proudly presenting the first Smackdown-only pay-per-view. Next RAW's Booker T appeared for one night only at the Smackdown-only show, to take on Matt Hardy. Next came the next chapter of the Torrie Wilson/Dawn Marie feud, in the form of a mixed tag team match with Billy Kidman as Torrie's partner and John Cena as Dawn's partner. Next was an interview with Edge, who talked about his dream of becoming the WWE Champion after it was announced he would face the Champion Brock Lesnar. The third match came in the form of Smackdown's #1 Announcer Funaki, taking on the multi-time former Hardcore Champion Crash. Fourth on the card, was the Cruiserweight Title match involving the Champion Jamie Noble defending against both Tajiri and Rey Mysterio. After a high-speed match between cruiserweights, the show ...

Trivia

This was the first ever pay-per-view exclusive to the SmackDown brand. Although, there was one exception in that Booker T, a Raw superstar at the time was allowed to fight Matt Hardy. The Raw brand had their part of the deal done previously by having Triple H, a then-SmackDown superstar, fight on their pay-per-view WWE Insurrextion earlier that year. See more »

Pretty good
30 October 2005 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

This PPV was shot in England in 2002, and it's pretty good. Out of the 8 matches presented, only 2 are really poor. In detail:

1) Booker T vs. Matt Hardy. Not a bad way to kick things off. A very even matchup with lots of reversals. Booker T even does a little break-dancing after the match. **1/2

2) John Cena and Dawn Marie vs. Billy Kidman and Torrie Wilson. Good wrestling by the men, lots of rolling around by the women, funny "ouch" acting by Cena when he gets hit in the groin and a hot 5-second kiss by Torrie to Billy at the end. Entertaining. ***

3) Funaki vs. Crash. Fast and technical wrestling. ***

4) Tajiri vs. Jamie Noble vs. Rey Mysterio (for the cruiserweight championship title). The crowd was rooting for Mysterio all the way, and I agree with them. That guy sure knows how to use his legs. But Noble's girlfriend Nidia helps him through the rough spots. ***

5) The Big Valbowski and Chuck Palumbo vs. Ron Simmons and D-Von. Brief and forgettable filler. It's easy to forget this match even occurred. *1/2

6) Albert vs. Rikishi. The match itself is slow, heavy and unconvincing, but the aftermath (all that "kiss my arse" business) is probably the low point of the night. *1/2

7) Eddie and Chavo Guerrero vs. Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit (for the tag-team championship title). The crowd obviously loves Angle, and this match is at its best when he dominates. But the whole "Angle and Benoit can't stand each other" thing is rather tiresome. **1/2

8) Brock Lesnar (and Paul Heyman, but you won't see too much of him) vs. Edge (for the WWE title). Usually the big guys don't impress me with their in-ring performances, but Brock Lesnar did. The "brocklock" looks pretty effective. **1/2

P.S. If you watch this on DVD, the extras include a 1997 match, also held in England, between Shawn Michaels and the British Bulldog, for the European championship. It's an entertaining match that goes on for about 30 minutes and develops into full-scale chaos by the end of it.
