Virginia, Sep 12: It was not the biggest PPV or show of the year, but Backlash has left the social media buzzing about it. With the limited resources, it has certainly over delivered.
Also, it’s a must mention that it was a compact show within a limited span of time compared to the other PPV shows of the year.
Here are the best and worst moments from the show:
Certainly, the best thing was the end of the night, when we officially knew that Smackdown Live is Phenomenal from now on. Ambrose was not having the best time as the champion and hence the change was much needed.
The crowd was always backing up Heath Slater and hence the creative did the right thing to crown him and Rhyno with the tag team championship. Rhyno has never been given a championship in his entire career in WWE and hence he deserved one, too.
Okay, so Becky Lynch is the first-ever Smackdown women’s champion. After the hard work of so many years, the Irish Lass-kicker finally got her hands full with the gold. The crowd supported the decision, too. She was the rightmost choice for the title.
Also, we are pretty sure that the Miz’s rivalry with Daniel Bryan is far from over since we have seen another confrontation. Even in the match, the Miz was seen mocking his General Manager, which Daniel did not take well. We for sure want to see more of this and won’t be disappointed when Smackdown comes on air, this Tuesday night.
Though there’s not much worse to talk about, we must admit that the worst thing about the PPV is Bray Wyatt’s loss. He was supposed to get pushed with a win but he ended up losing a match against Kane, who has nothing to earn at this point. Plus, Randy should have competed in the match to pick up momentum for his rematch against Lesnar. But, we were excused from all of these.
Also, bringing back Kane points out the fact that how thinner the roster is on Smackdown, as of now. Cena is gone from the show and there are a couple of injuries. The show must recover from it as early as possible.
