3.0 out of 5 stars wwe backlash 2009
1. MVP vs. Matt Hardt. U.S Title Match
This was an excellent opener. The pace was right, each men had the upper hand a few times. But mostly it was 2 men giving it their all and the result was very entertaining. A great way to start. (8/10).

2. Kane vs. Chavo Guerrero. ECW Title Match
Unfortunatley tis wasn't as good as the opener. It was far to slow...

A Kid's Review
This review is from: WWE - Backlash 2008 [DVD] (DVD)
1. MVP vs. Matt Hardt. U.S Title Match
This was an excellent opener. The pace was right, each men had the upper hand a few times. But mostly it was 2 men giving it their all and the result was very entertaining. A great way to start. (8/10).

2. Kane vs. Chavo Guerrero. ECW Title Match
Unfortunatley tis wasn't as good as the opener. It was far to slow and boring, both didn't look like they were trying. (4/10).

3. Big Show vs. The Great Khali.
This was your classic big man match here. 2 men lugging their heavy bodies around the ring at 0.3 mph. What I'm trying to say is that this was a waste of space. (2/10).

4. Batista vs. Shawn Micheals. Chris Jericho was Special Guest Referee.
Here is a case of power vs. experience. But it was nothing like I expected. It was 2 of the most successful superstars in the wwe going head to head and it was boring. HBK tried to ground Batista to much. Only at the end did it start to pick up but not by much. (4/10).

5. 12 Diva tag match.
Even though it was a card filler it really turned the PPV around. The match had 2 key moments. No.1: was when all 12 had a small riot onthe outside and No.2: was when every diva hit a finishing manouvere 1 after the other which eventually leads to the end of the match. (8/10).

6. Undertaker ns . Edge. World Heavyweight Title Match.
This match was a classic, not good enough to win MOTY but still extremely entertaining. Edge's 'henchmen' Hawkins and Ryder tried to interfere but both attempts were futile. (9/10).

7. Randy Orton vs. Triple H vs. John Cena vs. JBL. Fatal 4 Way Elimination Match for WWE Title.
This match was truly electrifying. Now this is a MOTY contender. 2 sudden eliminations and then a tense showdown between The Game and The Legend Killer. (10/10).

Overall I'd give Backlash a 7/10 due to a few dissapointinh matches but 2 wonderful main events.

2.0 out of 5 stars half good,half bad, 4 Aug. 2008

Backlash 2008 followed a fine wrestlemania so expectations were high but no one really expected it to better mania but there was some great quality at times and some very average scenes.
The event opened with the united states championship on the line,the champion MVP had it all to do against a vengeful matt hardy who had revenge still on his mind,the match wasnt great as it slowed down to a walk all too often but there was some great spots in it,it was an acceptable opener but didnt light up the room.
The ECW championship was up for grabs next,the champ kane had to fight the man that he fought in wrestlemania,chavo.This match was at least a contest and both men had moments of domination but when you break it down this was average and nothing more.
Another average to poor match followed as the big show fought the great khali,this was as per usual,a standard big man match,with both men slapping and whacking and huffing and puffing and not more more,there isnt alot to report here except that you have seen this match before,you really have.
Thats three matches into the bill and i still havent gone mad for a match,oh no,can the next match change the trend?i would say yes.Shawn michaels fought batista with chris jericho,who basically started this feud as guest ref.Jericho played his role with no bias which was a bit odd,but the match itself was good,it was hard to see who would win this as it went one way then the next and you could sense that each man hated the other,a clever ending to what was the first great match of the night.
A twelve diva tag match was up next spanning the three brands,does that sound good,nope,then you are correct,next!
The world heavyweight title was up next as the champ,undertaker went up against edge in a repeat from wrestlemania and just like that match this was a great match,similar in other ways as well but always proving that these two could put on one hell of a match,a contest to remember indeed,bravo,bravo!
A fatal four way for the WWE championship ended the night,the men were made up of the champ randy orton,triple H,john cena and JBL.Two of the men went early enough,i trust i wont get scolded for releasing that information and then we were left with one hell of a battle for the title,it was non stop action and left the crowd beaten down,it truly was an epic contest that showcased the talents of the Raw brand nicely,i loved it.
This pay per view was far from perfect but contained some great quality along with some matches that werent pay per view quality,2.5 stars and worth a gamble perhaps.

Backlash 2008

Hardy/MVP- **3/4
Kane/Chavo- **1/4
Show/Khali *1/2
Shawn Michaels/Batista- ***
Team Beth/Team Mickie- *
Undertaker/Edge- ***1/2
Triple H/Orton/Cena/JBL- ***

Backlash 2008 was alright, not the best but certainly not the worst PPV of 2008. Other may enjoy Fatal 4 Way more than i did, but i didn't enjoy the period of RKO/Hunter much.
