Backlash was a superb B level PPV, featuring 3 good under card matches, an exciting last man standing match and a superb fatal four way main event, this has to be the greatest Backlash PPV ever.
Results from the show: The Hardy Boyz defeated Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch to retain the WWE Tag Team Championships in an enjoyable match. Melina pinned Mickie James in a well received women's match to retain the Women's Championship. Chris Benoit defeated MVP in a choice match to keep the US title. Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon and Umaga downed Bobby Lashley in a silly handicap match, as a result Vince won the ECW World title. Batista and The Undertaker went to a double count out in an exciting last man standing match. John Cena defeated Randy Orton, Edge and Shawn Michaels in a superb main event when he pinned 'The Legend Killer.
The only disappointment on the card was McMahon's silly win over Lashley, Vince has now devalued 2 Championships. Even David Arquette didn't do that.
