Recorded live from Colonial Stadium and later released on WWE Home Video, this event marked the company’s first return to Australia since 1986.
We review the full SmackDown-branded event and discuss its impressive financial performance, dark matches missing from its recorded version, the “loose” commentary of Tazz and Michael Cole, as well as the absence of Hulk Hogan.
This edition of the Rewind-A-Wai is presented by Espresso Executive Producer, Alex Williams.
