A nice PPV to follow a great WrestleMania,
This review is from: WWF: Backlash [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
After a great WrestleMania how will the aftermath affect all the matches and the competitors in something that will be a night to remember.
Tag Team Title Match
Edge and Christian vs Road Dogg and X-Pac 5/10
A good tag team match, started of a bit slow and the crowd were really into this match. This had lots of near falls but it was nothing spectacular.
Light Heavyweight Title Match
Dean Malenko vs Scotty 2 Hotty 6/10
A nice match by some good lightweight competitors, the only thing about this match is that is went on a bit too long.
Big Boss Man and Bull Buchanan vs The Acolytes 4/10
Slow and boring, nothing else to say.
Hardcore Title 6 Way Match
Crash Holly vs Tazz vs Matt Hardy vs Jeff Hardy vs Hardcore Holly vs Perry Saturn 3/10
Another slow and boring hardcore match that is nothing spectacular, the hardcore battle royal at WrestleMania the month before was a lot better.
The Big Show vs Kurt Angle 4/10
This was a comedy match, short boring match but the only reason I am scoring it higher than the hardcore match is because Big Show does a great and hilarious impression of a former WWF legend (What you gonna do when the Showster runs wild on you, brother).
Test and Albert vs The Dudley Boyz 5/10
Again this was a good tag team match but nothing spectacular.
European Title Match
Eddie Guerrero vs Essa Rios 7/10
This is where the action picks up, this is a great fast paced match with lots of great moves by both men.
Intercontinental Title Match
Chris Jericho vs Chris Benoit 8/10
This in my opinion was match of the night in terms of wrestling and technicality, great performance.
World Title Match
The Rock vs Triple H: Guest Referee Shane McMahon 9/10
I gave this a 9 was because it saw the return of Stone Cold Steve Austin and it was over hyped moment which was good, but in terms of wrestling Benoit/Jericho wins it in that department.
Not the best Backlash there has been but it is up there with the best because we saw the return of Steve Austin.
