Trivia

The Kentucky Boxing and Wrestling Authority has issued WWE nine violations of state law for various occurrences, mostly concerning the use of blood, at the Backlash PPV. Prior to the show, the WWE was warned against the use of blood. WWE asked for allowance of special usage of blood and/or allowance to stop a match in the case of accidental bleeding, the latter of which is in according with the commission's rules, which the commission denied. WWE was fined $3,250 and given a 24-month probationary period by the Boxing and Wrestling Authority. See more »

2 matches (out of 7) make this worth seeing (?)
14 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

1) Carlito vs. Chris Masters. Nothing terrible here, but nothing special either. In my opinion, these two are not yet experienced enough to carry a PPV match on their own. **

2) Umaga vs. Ric Flair. Not much to say about this one. Umaga is just a Rikishi-style "wrestler", and Flair should have retired about a decade ago. *1/2

3) Trish vs. Mickie (Women's Title). This match begins aggressively, especially on Trish's part, but then she hurts her shoulder for real and we get a quick and cheap DQ ending. Disappointing. *1/2

4) RVD vs. Shelton Benjamin (Winner Takes All - MITB contract AND the IC title). Now this is what I call a match! An ideal combination of ground wrestling and aerial spots, and an amazing display of athleticism by two of the best wrestlers on the WWE roster. Match of the night. ***1/2

5) Kane vs. Big Show. Incredibly sluggish big-man match, but the "mystical" storyline surrounding it (which was meant to promote Kane's movie "See No Evil", and was completely dropped after a few weeks) is good for a few (unintentional) laughs. **

6) The McMahons vs. HBK and "God" (No Holds Barred). I didn't care at all about the Vince-HBK feud, nor am I fan of draggy hardcore brawls. HBK tries to save this match with some high-risk moves, but there is only so much you can do with Vince McMahon and the Spirit Squad in the ring. **

7) Edge vs. Cena vs. HHH. Triple Threat for the WWE title. The wrestling here is not brilliant by any means, but the dynamics of a triple threat are well-worked-out and (along with a hot crowd) make this enjoyable. ***

Footnote: Matt Striker is so good on the mic that he even makes a sketch with Eugene (almost) tolerable.
