Alright Show
4 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

Backlash is normally the show in which you see all the fall out from the previous Wrestlemania. With Orton still as WWE Champion and Undertker as new World Heavyweight Champion you could have expected a lot from this Backlash, but it could have been better.

Dark Match: The Miz & John Morrison vs Jimmy Wang Yang & Shannon Moore - My friend took a trip up to Baltimore with his family to see this event live. I asked him what the dark match was when he returned home and he informed me that it was a tag team contest between The Miz & John Morrison taking on Jimmy Wang Yang & Shannon Moore. Miz & Morrison picked up the win. Who didn't see that coming, all though I would like to see more from Wang Yang & Moore, they are a fantastic team.

Match 1: MVP (c) vs Matt Hardy for the United States Championship - We all knew that it was Hardy's time to shine. MVP at this point was champion for almost a year. These two put on a very decent opening match. MVP takes it to Hardy a little and Hardy takes it to MVP a little. In the end we see MVP goes for his Player's Boot, but Hardy moves and catches him into a Twist of Fate. Hardy wins the title and the crowd goes wild because of it.

Match 2: Kane (c) vs Chavo Guerrero (with Bam Neely) for the ECW Championship - I for one took out my stop watch to see if Chavo would last longer than at Wrestlemania. Kane really does what he can to retain, even through interference from Bam Neely. Chavo attacks Kane's knee a lot to try and keep him down, but in the end it doesn't matter because Kane turns it into Wrestlemania all over again hitting a chokeslam to retain the title.

Match 3: Big Show vs The Great Khali - Besides the two main events this match was what most wanted to catch on this show. I for one have to point out what a low and dull match this turned out to be. WWE just makes Big Show look like all he can handle is guys the size of Floyd Mayweather. Big Show for one is a two time WWE Champion, while Khali only held the World Heavyweight Champiship for a cup of coffee sort of reign. Khali basically dominates, but the question is why. The fans were bored out of their mind with this. In the end Big Show knocks his hands out of the way to hit a chokeslam for the win. Fans are excited with the finish even though the match sucked.

Match 4: Shawn Michaels vs Batsta with Chris Jericho as Special Guest Referee - This match really takes that bad taste about Batista out of your mouth. He really sucked at Wrestlemania against Umaga. This match though was a very good contest and a nice candidate for match of the night. Michaels really makes it seem as though he is turning heel again the way he wins this match. Michaels feigns a knee injury only to catch Batista with a roll up for the win. Both Jericho and Batista are unhappy with this choice of victory from Michaels.

Match 5: 12 Diva Tag Team Match - Dull match at most. Just a time filler from Michaels/Batista to the title main events. Beth Phoenix, Melina, Layla, Jillian Hall, Victoria & Natalya take the win.

Match 6: Undertaker (c) vs Edge for the World Heavyweight Championship - These two once again put on a stellar performance. Next to Michaels and Batista this was one of the best singles matches of the night. Undertaker fought through all Edge and Vickie put him through and he took it to the Rated R Superstar with authority. Edge also shows that he is ready to finally beat Undertaker by not full-on cheating this time around. Undertaker in the end latches on his gogoplata submission for the win by choking out Edge.

Match 7: Randy Orton (c) vs John Cena vs Triple H vs JBL in a Fatal Four Way Elimination match for the WWE Championship - Orton caught us all by surprise when he retained at Wrestlemania. Even though it was too good to be true we knew he was done this time. Ten minutes into the match JBL submits to John Cena's STFU. After JBL's elimination, Cena is struck with a stiff punt by Orton for his own elimination. It is all down to Orton and Triple H for the title. These two put on one hell of a performance. Without the dead weight of Cena and JBL this match earns a higher rating from me. In the end Triple H hits a pedigree so he can start title reign number 12.
