Now let me move on from the introduction. I was going to do D generation X but Lance Briggs Jersey , me being me, I completely forgot about the PPV, Backlash. Don't worry; I haven't dropped the D generation X article.

Forethoughts on Backlash:

Looking at the card, I felt that this was going to be a pretty solid WWE PPV. Nothing major should happen, and nothing truly spectacular, but a good, entertaining watch, none the less.

The card looked solid, with all three titles being defended that night. We had Jeff and Matt in an I quit match, and also Chris Jericho taking on another legend in Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat. With CM Punk vs. Kane as well, we had some definite potential for matches. I hope that they would do themselves justice.

For those unaware, here was the 'official' match card for the night.

1. Jack Swagger (c) Vs. Christian – ECW title match.
2. Chris Jericho Vs. Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat – This would be Ricky's final match.
3. CM Punk Vs. Kane – No sti[censored] tion.
4. Jeff Hardy Vs. Matt Hardy – I Quit Match.
5. Santina Marella Vs. Beth Phoenix – Miss Wrestlemania on the line
6. Triple H (c), Batista and Shane McMahon Vs. Legacy – WWE championship match
7. John Cena (c) Vs. Edge – Last Man Standing for the World Heavyweight Championship

The Backlash Show, and my Thoughts:

Match one: Jack Swagger (c) Vs. Christian for the ECW world title

As the show kicked off, we heard Christian's theme for the first match of the night. I hoped that "Captain Charisma" would win, as I am a general fan of him. I liked his work in singles and his work with Edge against The Hardy Boyz. It was a great move for him to return to the WWE. Swagger dominated the first part of the match really, with the best spot being when Christian was body pressed to the outside, over the turnbuckle. Even as the match continued, Christian was dominated, being put in constant submissions. However, Christian rallied as the fans got behind him, and with a piece of light hearted humour, won. As Jack Swagger went to expose the turnbuckle, Christian was on the other side of the ring, in the corner. Jack was stopped by the referee but Christian, whilst acting hurt and tired, exposed the other. Jack ran into it, before walking right into a Killswitch. Christian got the three count and became the new ECW champion!!!

I thought this match was a good start for the PPV, with a few good spots and a good ending. The moves were sold well, and it got the crowd hyped. Surely things could only get better?

Next, we see Edge and Christian backstage. Christian called Edge a bitter raving lunatic, and Edge defended himself. The promo had good chemistry, due to Edge and Christian working together before, and gave Christian exposure as a champ whilst building hype for the Edge Vs. Cena match later on.

Match two: Chris Jericho Vs. Ricky Steamboat

This match was a serious Wrestlemaina repercussion match, after Jericho's match against the legends. The match started pretty evenly Tom Waddle Bears Jersey , with Rick getting the better of Jericho mainly. The match kept slowing down due to submission attempts, though. Jericho insulted Ricky throughout the match, which was a nice touch. The match became back and forth and eventually, Ricky became the dominant star. Throughout the match, finishers were traded, with things like the lionsault being blocked. Walls of Jericho got locked in right in the centre of the ring, and Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat tapped out.

This was a much better match than I anti[censored] ted. I expected that Jericho was going to have to carry the match, and I'm glad I was proven wrong. Ricky pushed himself to the limits for his final match, and there was always an edge of tension involved, be it from blocking the Lionsault to being hit by the Codebreaker.

Next we see Santino in "Santina's" locker room, arguing with Beth Phoenix. She accuses him of not revealing Santina's true identity, and that he should own up. Santino argues back, and the promo is over.

Match three: Kane Vs. CM Punk

Kane and CM Punk had been built up for a while, and I haven't been massively impressed. However, with the competitors involved, I expected something good here. Early on, CM Punk was in control, focusing on the right side shoulder of Kane, with some good exciting offense. Then, the match became more realistic, with Kane's natural size and strength showing through. He hit Punk hard with each move, and you could hear each one of the impacts. CM Punk was kicking like crazy, but when he tried a move off the ropes and Kane caught him with a punch, it was almost finished. Cm Punk tried to rally, but when Kane caught him with a chokeslam, the three count was easy.

This was another solid match, which had its highs and lows. Not the best, but then, it didn't have to be. Kane and CM Punk got good reactions from the crowd. Once again, a good, entertaining match.

A quick recap of the Jeff and Matt angle next. This was a great video promo, not only giving the viewer something to catch up with the history, but it reallyVN:F [1.9.22_1171]Rate This Articleplease wa
