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.

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 fight on their pay-per-view WWE Insurrextion earlier that year. See more »

Rebellion 2002

Could have been better. The first match putting Booker T against Matt Hardy was good, but unfortunately the event takes a bit of a dive. John Cena teams up with Dawn Marie to battle Billy Kidman and Torrie Wilson in a passable match. Then you know when the WWE is in trouble when Funaki challenges the late Mike 'Crash Holly' Lockwood! Plus add to this a Kiss my Ass match putting Rikishi against Albert , and the terrible teaming of Ron Simmons and Reverend D-Von vs Chuck Palumbo and Val Venis, makes you wonder whether you are getting your money's worth, but thankfully the event picks up from here but only slightly. Los Guerrero's battle Chris Benoit and Kurt Angle and the main event sees Edge do battle with Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman. Why they added Heyman to the match I don't know but this does prove entertaining enough.
