According to Monday's OO it's the WWF Raw roster that will be touring Europe at the start of May. While it's great that we get RVD and Eddy, I must admit that I'm a little gutted that we won't get Angle/Rock/Hogan/the Cruisers. I just really would have prefered the SD roster, I mean I don't like Austin and the even the nWo (I'm getting desperate here) don't do house shows, or at least I guess they wouldn't do the full set of dates. I thought that since it was all building to a UK PPV, we might get a mixed roster but I suppose it's not that important an event for the WWF. I know that only about 3 other guys might be even slightly bothered about this, but if anyone was going and is similarly disappointed (or even pleased) I'd love to hear about it.

I don't know..
I like the Raw roster.
Sure, I'll miss Angle and all those SD guys, but the Raw roster should be capable of presenting a good (house)show and PPV.

I will be going to the show in Germany and am looking forward to seeing a nicely worked house show with maybe not all of my favorite wrestlers but at least several of them.

It only makes sense for the PPV to be one show only.
Rebellion will probably be the SD PPV.

Insurrextion tickets...two rows behind the commentators...don't care WHO'S going.

Okay....maybe it'd be cool to see Hogan live. Qubber, are you going to Insurrextion?

PS Again, I ask: Who the Hell is showing Backlash in this country?! Sky? Channel Five? Someone's gotta know.

wwfinternational.com doesn't include the UK in their "how to see Backlash" list yet. I'd keep checking there...

I tried for Insurrextion tickets, OSH, but I got through after they'd sold out (ie about 25 minutes after they'd gone on sale ). I'm going to Birmingham the night before Insurrextion. On reflection, I think it's more that I wanted to see Angle et al rather than I'm disappointed that it'll be the Raw crew. I really wanted to do the singalong "You Suck" chant .

Thanks for the tip on wwfinternational, CRZ, I'll keep checking that too. I bet you any money it'll be a Sky Box Office exclusive, OSH. I love the way that everyone around the world is jealous of our "free" PPVs. Personally with a basic subscription and a Sky Sports subscription, I'm shelling out 27 a month to watch WWF PPVs etc so the extra 15 for Backlash is taking things a bit too far in my opinion. I sure hope Channel 5 gets off its hiney and does something. Nigh on 30 quid a month is enough for my "free" WWF thankyouverymuch.

And finally, OSH, you have to take a Weinerville sign if you're behind the commentators. PS are you anything to do with Power Slam?

Backlash WILL be a Sky Box Office PPV just like the Rumble 2002 was.

Remember when they used to show wwf on Eurosport even the ppv's? (split over two shows, but still...)

You guys have fun at Insurextion... maybe we dutchies will all be at the next London ppv?? whaddayasay dMp?

Does anyone else see a major problem with this? The RAW roster is weak enough as it is; how much worse will it be with half the talent in Europe?

Big Bad, the whole Raw roster will be over here, but don't worry it wont be on a Monday, you'll still get them on Raw.

Anyway, don't begrudge us some decent wrestling, we only get about 8 shows a year that we could possibly afford to go to without crossing the Atlantic .

Going to Germany and to WM is good enough for me.

And yes I recall Eurosport airing wwf, and later japanese stuff.
I also recall the Dutch commentator pointing out that this was all 'catch-as-catch-can' and fake, and if we wanted to see real wrestling go see 'Heracles 74' and names like that *grin*
Oh how I miss that man.

Sky i believe bought all the PPVs that channel 4/5 had but i bet they had to pay a hefty sum for them and thus they decided to air them on sky box office..

Well, considering he claims to come from NWO Country, and knowing how Fin Martin and the boys have said one or two unfavourable things about Nash and chums down the years... I'm guessing not.

Ha, I know Mo Chatra through a few correspondences, but haven't spoken to Fin or anyone else. Mo's a nice enough guy, though. Although I don't think he's got a penchant for the nWo like I have.

And I'll definitely be taking a Weinerville sign. Plus, of course, the ubiquitous "CRZ Is WALKING" sign.

Here's some info on the lawsuit. I don't believe it's been settled, yet. http://www.cooldudesandhotbabes.com/singh.html Tiger is retired, I believe, and living comfortably outside of Hamilton, Ontario.
