WWE “Wrestlemania Backlash” (05.08.2022) (Wrestling Review)


Wrestlemania Backlash

Providence, Rhode Island

May 8th, 2022


Singles Match
Seth Rollins vs. Cody Rhodes

I feel like I must be the only one who isn’t loving Cody vs Seth. It was an okay match with some nonstop offense from both mostly and some good spots. Crowd was into it with the close falls but it just never truly hit. I felt like these matches just haven’t had any wow factor between these two which is odd. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
Bobby Lashley vs. Omos (w/MVP)

Another feud that I wish would just die. Omos push is awful and he continues the trend of giants that can’t work. He can’t / doesn’t sell much and when he does its awful. This was a boring match that even if it tried just never worked. 

1.5 / 5

Singles Match
AJ Styles vs. Edge

Slightly better than their awful Wrestlemania match but still bad. I don’t know why these two just have no chemistry. The match is slow and just dragged on. Add in the awful run in finish that we all expected and this feud sadly just seems to not want to die. The close falls and finish spots helped but this pacing is just all over.

1.5 / 5

WWE SmackDown Women’s Title I Quit Match
Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Ronda Rousey

A solid match that worked mostly here. They talked WAY too much though and that killed the pacing massively. They needed to really cut that down. It was a solid brawl though with some good spots. The ending worked with Ronda winning even though she isn’t exactly over with the crowd. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
Happy Corbin vs. Madcap Moss

A very average match that would have just fit on Raw. Corbin took offense for most of the match here with Madcap getting a quick win out of nowhere almost. 

2 / 5

Six Man Tag Team Match
Drew McIntyre & RK-Bro (Randy Orton & Riddle) vs. The Bloodline (Jey Uso, Jimmy Uso & Roman Reigns) (w/Paul Heyman)

This was a fun match that ultimately was pointless. Just a bunch of guys in feuds / about to feud that ended with the least offensive win to not hurt anyone. While this was going though it was a fun match. Moved along at a constant pace and eventually turned into complete chaos. It also shows how over Riddle is and RKBRO is. 

4 / 5
