Backlash was terrible (other then the opener).

No clue who KO and Zayn strawberry floated off backstage. Owens has gone from Universal Title holder to comedy act. The eventual breakup and a repeat if the match they do will be good I suppose.

Owens was a comedy act when he had the Universal Title as well. Shame they can't book him as a legitimate threat like they did in NXT.

It's a shame as owens and Zayn are really good together. There is zero reason why they shouldn't be main eventing with the title like owens and Jericho did together.

Zayn was the most over baby face, had one of the most incredible match with Nak and now nothing. Vince needs to piss off to XFL and get Trips to takeover stat.

I fell asleep during the multi-man tag, which I never normally do. I think the combination of it feeling like a RAW and replacing Monster with the weak as gooseberry fool POW! done me in. Plus by the time it finished at 4:30am it was getting light outside. :dread:

The show overran because of that pointless Alias segment.

To be fair the Elias segment was the best thing about the show. Unless you enjoyed watching 5 minute holds.

The footage of people in the crowd getting up and leaving immediately when Roman won is hilarious.

The show was rubbish other than the opening match. Was really enjoying AJ/Nak as well but of course WWE couldn't be having that and ruined it. I don't understand how Vince can continue to insist on Roman being the guy, the roster is stacked with talent right now, even if his fondness for him is based purely on his look, why would you not just go with Rollins instead? He practically looks the same and is better in every way.

Glad my subscription expires today or tomorrow. I'll probably tune out for the foreseeable future.

Looking forward to Omega/Okada IV.

Mine renewed this morning after I forgot to cancel it following Mania :fp: Cancelled it now though, WWE creative is just garbage outside of NXT.

If anyone wants some eye bleach following Backlash, go watch at least The Jr and Heavyweight title matches from Dontaku. Both incredible.

The WWE Twitter is teasing another Roman Reigns (“the uncrowned champion”) vs Brock Lesnar encounter again.

Vince's obsession with him now is beyond pathetic.

Not a good show, and definitely not challenging the all time crappiest PPVs of all time, but yeah I don’t think there’s been a worse one in the last couple of years at least.

Not a good start to the new co-branded PPVs, which are supposed to be producing better quality matches with less filler and repeats.

I don’t get where they going with Braun. He spends a month looking for a partner and they pair him up with a kid. Then he win the tag titles and relinquishes them. Now they put him in a tag team again with Lashley, who they also seem to have no idea how to use.

Bobby Roode is turning into a joke every week. Owens and Zayn could be something great, but it’s hopeless when they treated like jobbers every week.

What Braun needs right now is a singles run with the title. It was all so placed for him to challenge Lesnar at mania and win the title. The momentum was all there. He is decent on the mic and the crowd love to see him smash things up. It’s not rocket science WWE.
