Smackdown Date: February 6, 2003 Location: First Union Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz No Way Out is creeping closer and it’s pretty clear that Hulk Hogan vs. the Rock is the main event, even if the big match on the horizon is Hogan vs. Vince McMahon.

Smackdown Date: January 30, 2003 Location: Resch Center, Green Bay, Wisconsin Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz We’re getting closer to No Way Out and the big story is the return of Hulk Hogan, who showed up last week and punched out Vince McMahon.

Smackdown Date: January 16, 2003 Location: Continental Airlines Arena, East Rutherford, New Jersey Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz We’re at the go home show for the Royal Rumble and you wouldn’t really know based on the TV they’ve been building towards it.

Smackdown Date: January 2, 2003 Location: Tingley Coliseum, Albuquerque, New Mexico Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz It’s time for a new year with a special live show.
