We get two UK shows a year, and in December I paid 50 expecting a full WWF card. Then, the split comes along, and I find out we're getting the RAw brand. OK, fair enough, I guess. THEN they announce the line-up.

And Hulk Hogan, the World Freakin' Champion, isn't even on it. Not only that, but neither RVD or Eddie Guerrero are appearing. Instead we get a mixed tag "match" between Jerry Lawler and Trish and Mr. Perfect and Molly.

And I'm mighty pissed off about it. Does anyone else have a ticket? And does anyone know the email address to where I can send my vitriolic letter of bitchiness?

Well, crap. I wasn't expecting Hogan due to his two dates a week thing (i.e TV only) but no RVD and Eddie makes me wonder why I bothered, as I'm sure the house shows will be far worse than the PPV. Where did you get the card info? If you want another name to put on any complaint count me in. Please let me know if you find an address to complain to as I'd like my money back if we're getting the "Jakked" European tour. Now I know for sure that they really don't care about shafting UK fans (as if the UK PPVs they've put on so far didn't make that obvious anyway) I'll make sure I don't pay for live tickets again.

And to think I thought the last WCW tour was taking the piss.

You guys got SCREWED. If you get X Pac/Hall/Partner X VS Bradshaw/Austin/Partner Y as a main event I say you make a soccer riot look like a bake sale.

Wow, that is a real weak card. Lesnar/Crash and Stasiak/Credible will probably be about 5 minutes max, combined.

Here's the card that insurrextion.com has:


Here is the blockbuster tentative card set to take place on May 4!

Triple H vs. Undertaker

Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Big Show

Intercontinental Championship
Eddie Guerrero vs. Rob Van Dam

Bradshaw vs. X-Pac

Hardcore Championship
Bubba Ray Dudley vs. Booker T

Hardy Boyz vs. Brock Lesnar & Shawn Stasiak (with Paul Heyman)

European Championship
William Regal vs. Spike Dudley

Divas Tag Match
Trish Stratus & Jacqueline vs. Mighty Molly & Jazz

Crash vs. Mr. Perfect

Plus ... Ric Flair will be in the house!


So you guys still don't get Hogan, but you do get Eddie and RVD and no mixed tag match.

The lineup from insurrextion.com really does not look that bad. No hogan but then again some decent looking matches. If i was going i dont think i would complain too much.

"Brock Lesnar & Shawn Stasiak"

That should be real interesting. One gimmick is building the guy up as a monster heel and the other is a complete dufus.

The card doesn't look bad but why is HHH wrestling?

The card has changed again. Sayeth the Observer: "--The decision has been made and HHH will be going on the U.K. tour for Raw even though he's on the Smackdown team. Hogan was advertised on domestic shows so they didn't send him. The new 5/4 London Wembley Arena PPV line-up has been changed to HHH vs. Undertaker, Steve Austin vs. Big Show, Eddy Guerrero vs. Rob Van Dam for the IC title, X-Pac vs. Bradshaw, Bubba Ray Dudley vs. Booker T, Hardys vs. Brock Lesnar & Shawn Stasiak, Spike Dudley vs. William Regal for the European title, Trish Stratus & Jackie vs. Molly Holly & Jazz and Mr. Perfect vs. Crash Holly."

I'm really glad they took Lawler out of the Stratus/Molly mix, the last thing that feud/storyline needs is Lawler messing it up.

KEEP LAWLER AWAY FROM THE WOMEN DIVISION.

Actually, if I get RVD vs Eddie live and in person that will pretty much stop my complaining immediately. Anything above that will be nicely appreciated though.

In reality, we have all the people who actually pay for the PPV at home to blame for getting weaker lineups than in the US. I mean, if you are a company and can draw the same amount of money with a weaker lineup and still draw with the big names across the atlantic on the same day than you'd do it too. As long as we pay for substandard UK-only PPVs with no angles/storyline ramifications then that's what they'll keep giving us.

I'm getting pretty stoked up now though, I can't wait for Friday in Birmingham .
