Actually, the honor will go to the Insurrextion show in Newcastle, England on June 7th. ----- Now, ignoring the deceptive title, there's also the matter of this: Insurrextion 2002 May 4, 2002 in London Wembley Arena drawing 10,500 Shown live on UK PPV Mr. Perfect pinned Goldust. Rob Van Dam beat WWF I-C Champ Eddie Guerrero (11:23) via DQ. Trish Stratus & Jacquelyn beat Molly Holly & Jazz (7:40) when Jacquelyn pinned Holly. X-Pac pinned Bradshaw (8:47). Booker T pinned Steven Richards (10:32) to win the WWF Hardcore Title. After the match, the following wrestlers won the title: Crash Holly, Booker T, and Steven Richards. Matt & Jeff Hardy beat Brock Lesnar & Shawn Stasiak (6:54) when Jeff pinned Stasiak. WWF European Champ Spike Dudley pinned William Regal (4:56). Steve Austin pinned The Big Show (16:00). Ric Flair was the special referee. Triple H pinned The Undertaker (14:29). ---- I haven't seen the 1wrestling version of this story, but I hope they put that comment right next to a smarmy "JR didn't rememeber a non-match from 13 years ago!" comment, for irony's sake.

Aren't those "Raw-only" shows? ;-)

AIM: # 4 Posted on 28.5.03 1135.43 Reposted on: 28.5.10 1138.49 If I could play Devil's Advocate for a moment - at the time of that PPV, HHH was on the Smackdown roster, so in the most technical sense, it wasn't a RAW-only PPV. (Just like how Booker T made a guest appearance at Rebellion towards the end of 2002.) I know, I know, it's all nitpicking...

ICQ: # 5 Posted on 28.5.03 1226.52 Reposted on: 28.5.10 1229.01 What I don't like about it (at least the 1wrestling version I spotted yesterday) is they have in big letters something like: GOLDBERG WON'T BE AT FIRST-EVER RAW PPV And they KNOW that most people will be thinking that he's no-showing Bad Blood. If they dispute that, why not just write `Goldberg not to be at UK only PPV' or something like that? It's all about the clicks, I guess...

(Sorry to revive this thread after like 6 days, but I thought this was a good point to finish it off with.)

Oh, how nice. The UK main event's being saddled with a roided-out hyper-American patriot. Or does Vinnie Mac think the Brits will welcome him with open arms, since Bush and Blair are so "buddy-buddy" with each other?

It was a street fight between Nash and HHH. In fact it seemed like a run through for Bad Blood, the match line up was so similar.
