"Rikishi VS Rico - This was a nothing match. Rico has quite a bit of talent, but it has been quite some time since I've seen Rikishi in a good match. Since the stipulation for this match was that the loser had to kiss the rear end of the winner, you can guess how this one ended. Cruiserweight Championship : Jamie Noble (C) VS The Hurricane - This match wasn't too bad. Hurricane hit a swinging neckbreaker off the top rope (impressive), and while it wasn't as high flying as I might expect from the cruiserweights, it wasn't a bad match. It also wasn't any different than what we see on Smackdown every Thursday. This was early in the rivalry between these two. Tag Team Championship: The UnAmericans (Lance Storm and Christian) (C) VS Billy Kidman and Rey Mysterio - This match gave the feel of being thrown together at the last minute. The UnAmericans had already jumped to RAW and we had never seen Kidman and Mysterio team up. Considering the talent of the champions and how exciting Mysterio is.....this match was boring. Chris Jericho VS Edge - The best match on the card. I'm a big fan of Jericho as it is, and he plays to the opponent and the crowd so well. Good match.
Bra and Panties: Stacy Keibler VS Torrie Wilson - Is this wrestling or a watered down Girls Gone Wild? I don't know, but if the WWE expects us to take the women's division seriously, they have to stop making the women a joke. As it stands, I'm a wrestling fan and would rather see actual wrestling matches when I watch the programming. The Big Valbowski introduces the women (the most entertaining part) and Nidia gets involved. Nobody cares. Undisputed Championship: Rock (C) VS Triple H VS Brock Lesnar - Remember that this is before Summerslam, so Brock had not yet won the title nor had he faced Rock (as far as I can remember). This match was somewhat of a letdown. The Rock worked really hard, but the match was somewhat uninspired. I wonder if this is because we know who will win (as if they are going to change the main event two weeks before Summerslam) or just because the Triple Threat match was just a mess. Bonus Matches from 1986 (the last time the WWE came to AustraliaThe Rougeaus Vs The Moondogs - The commentary for this match said that it was the WWF debut of the Rougeaus (later known as the Fabulous Rougeau Brothers). While I was always entertained by the Rougeaus when I watched in the 80's, this match didn't have anything special. Maybe it was the Moondogs that killed the match.Don Muraco & Mr Fuji Vs S.D Jones & King Tonga - I honestly skipped this one. I've only seen Muraco wrestle Dino Bravo in 1988, but I didn't care enough to watch it. It was sad to see Mr. Fuji in the ring. He was fairly old at the time and should have realized that his time in the ring was done. Andre the Giant VS Big John Studd - Always nice to see Andre in the ring, but this was a lumbering match. Slow, boring, and the only reason you should watch it is just to see Andre wrestle. Honestly, this DVD is not worth your money. Had this been a Smackdown show, it might not have been too bad. However, this was a PPV. This wasn't a good PPV at all. The matches weren't very interesting and there was nothing else to help move it along. No promos, nothing. If you have to own every WWE DVD, then buy it. If you only want the good ones, leave this one alone."
WWE in Australia for the 1st time in 20 years

"56, 000 + witnessed this show, held at Melbourne's Colonial Stadium on August 10 this year. I was one of those in attendance for the WWE's first show down under for nearly 20 years, and I can say that it was an exciting, if a little bit predictable, night of wrestling. There were some good matches on the card, specifically the Cruiserweight title match between the Hurricane and Jamie Noble, the Tag Title match with Rey Mysterio and Kidman taking on Lance Storm and Christian of the Un-Americans, Kurt Angle (playing the face, funnily enough) against Test, Chris Jericho vs. fellow Canadian Edge and the main event with the Undisputed Title on the line, which saw The Rock defend against Brock Lesnar and Triple H in an exciting match. I am led to believe there will be extras on the DVD, with footage of the WWE superstars touring throughout Melbourne. Don't watch it for the best card of wrestling but it will still be an enjoyable viewing."
IT WASN'T A PPV...But A Pretty Enjoyable Card

"This tour marked the first time WWE visited the country of Austraila in close to 20 years and this was one of the shows on that tour that mixed the RAW & SmackDown athletes together for a good card. Keep in mind that this WAS NOT a PPV or a card ment for television, it was a normal house show with the catch that it was in Austraila who didn't have a house show in almost 20 years unlike other counties like the U.S. & Canada. Also on here inbetween the matches were footage of the WWE superstars thoughout Australia such as Torrie Wilson shopping, Kurt Angle visiting the zoo, and Jamie Noble & Nidia surfing.
Kiss My Ass Match: Rikishi vs. Rico - Just an average opener here that got the crowd warmed up & involved a little humorous site with Rico's reaction to the stinkface.
Crusierweight Champion Jamie Noble vs. The Hurricane - Good crusierweight action that had some high flyin', mat wrestling, and given enough time to develop into a good match up. One of the better crusierweight matches during this year.
Tag Team Champions Un-Americans vs. Billy Kidman & Rey Mysterio - Kidman & Mysterio knew each other so well here that they actually meshed well here into a good team & held their own against Storm & Christian here in a match that was highly better than expected knowing that Kidman & Mysterio were not a regular tag team.
Edge vs. Chris Jericho - Two of the best "young talent" in WWE at this time clashed in what was a great match with Jericho doing a funny promo before the match as well. This was one of the best matches of the night as they give you their all & told a nice story here as well.
Bra & Panties Match: Torrie Wilson vs. Stacy Keibler - The T&A (and "L" for legs whenever it includes Ms. Keibler) segment of the night. There isn't really much more to stay besides the fact that this match was actually decent & watchable.
WWE Undisputed Champion The Rock vs. Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H - This was Triple H's first match back since taking some time off for an injury after King Of The Ring earlier in the year. What a match here & was the match of the night here. They meshed well together concidering the facts that I believe this was the only time Brock & Triple H wrestled against each other and the only other time besides SummerSlam that I believe Rock & Brock fought each other. There was never a boring moment here & Brock didn't look out of place once between these two veterans. The only disappointment is that you knew who was going to win the match (this happened right before SummerSlam) but it still doesn't take away from a good triple threat match.
Overall, this was a good event in my eyes. It wasn't suppost to be a PPV or television, it was a basically a house show they put on DVD so if your looking for storylines & high profile fueds then this won't appeal to you but if your looking for just good wrestling action then I recommend."
