WWE Rebellion

Jump to: navigation, search

Rebellion was an annual professional wrestling pay-per-view event held by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) that was exclusively for the United Kingdom. In 2002, the pay-per-view was a SmackDown! exclusive show. It was no longer an annual event after all UK-exclusive pay-per-views ceased in 2003. Rebellion had its own theme song aptly titled "Rebellion". With the exception of the 2002 edition, The Rock was featured in the main event of all versions of the event.
