WWE backlash 2008
26 May 2008 | by (England) – See all my reviews

An excellent PPV.

I feel confident when I say this but I'm sure 80% of fans knew that Triple H would defeat Randy Orton in the main event. JBL on the other hand is not championship material and John Cena doesn't need another title reign just yet as he's currently filming another movie which requires him to be in New Orleans for most of the time. I just hope HHH drops the title when the time comes and doesn't bore fans stupid like he did in mediocre feuds with Kevin Nash, Scott Steiner and Bill Goldberg in 2003. This reviewer would like to see a feud between Triple H and CM Punk in the near future.

The Undertaker vs Edge match was again a top match and they didn't disappoint the crowd, however this Vicky Guerrero is really doing my F'N head in with her "You are not the champion crap", I just wish Taker would give her the Tombstone on the steel steps and do us all a favour. Hey you might criticise me for being too harsh there but she does my head in. I know Eddie Guerrero left her and the kids in financial peril and she needs the money but I'm sure WWE can just give her a pension based on what Eddie earned throughout his career..... oops I forgot "pension" and "benefits" are a dirty word in WWE and to show how cruel this company is they still don't pay for wrestler's hotel and car rental expenses.

Getting back to Backlash, no I haven't forgotten about it, Mick Foley joined Michael Cole on the broadcasting booth, but Foley is a better replacement than Jonathon Coachman, perhaps the second worst commentator in the WWE only behind Mike Adamle of course.

Results from the show: Matt Hardy downed MVP to win the US title in a very good match.... Kane defeated Chavo Guerrero to retain the ECW title.... Big Show downed The Great Khali.... Shawn Michaels downed Batista in a strong bout (I forgot about Batista's lame match with Umaga at WM 24 when I seen this match).... Layla El, Victoria, Beth Pheonix, Melina, Jillian Hall and Natalya Neidhart defeated Mickie James, Cherry, Maria, Michelle McCool, Kelly Kelly and Ashley in a fair match.... The Undertaker defeated Edge to retain the World title in a grand match.... Triple H defeated Randy Orton (champion) JBL and John Cena in an excellent match to regain the WWE title.

Overall Grade - A
