WrestleMania Backlash was amazing
WWE may not have given WrestleMania Backlash the best build, but the show sure did deliver.
This was one of the company's better efforts in 2022, with no match being an outright flop. I Quit Match for the SmackDown Women's Championship: Ronda Rousey beats Charlotte Flair (Ronda's the new champion) Single Match: Madcap Moss beats Happy Corbin Six Men Tag Team Match: The Bloodline beat RK-Bro (Randy Orton & Matt Riddle) & Drew McIntyre Notes from the show: - Bianca Belair's Raw Women's Championship was not defended in the PPV.
- Theory's US Championship was not defended in the PPV. - Ricochet's Intercontinental Championship was not defended in the PPV. - WWE Women's Tag Team Championships were not defended in the PPV. - WWE Undisputed Universal Championship and SmackDown Tag Team Championships were not defended in PPV despite the champions being engaged in matches.
Lashley was distracted by his former manager, who was subject to a Hurt Lock outside the ring. The former WWE Champion locked Omos in the deadly submission as well, but he got out of it. MVP proved crucial at the finish, which saw him hit Bobby Lashley with his cane before the seven-footer won with the Choke Bomb.
After avenging his previous loss, he looked much better at WrestleMania Backlash. Hopefully, the third match is even better if WWE goes ahead with it. Ronda Rousey finally got her hands on the SmackDown Women's Championship as she avenged her loss from WrestleMania 38 earlier this year.
The two superstars took each other to their limits in a match that saw the use of Kendo sticks and chairs during the course of the action. Eventually, The Rowdy One forced Charlotte to quit after pulling her arm through a Steel Chair and locking her in the Armbar.
After the match, Kayla Braxton announced that the Queen had suffered a fractured radius. It will be interesting to see what the future holds for the SmackDown star after her recent loss to Ronda.
