WWE Wrestlemania Backlash: 3 Must-See Moments
Edge’s Judgement Day
In the weeks leading up to Wrestlemania, Edge had a chip on his shoulder. The former Rated-R Superstar was reflective of a more sinister side, and he directed it towards AJ Styles. In a hard-fought battle at Wrestlemania, Edge was able to get the win following a distraction from Damian Preist. Edge and Priest have since formed Judgement Day, with Styles getting another opportunity at Backlash. Both men gave it there all, but a masked figure appeared and caused another distraction. Edge was able to lock in a rear-naked sleeper on Styles and get the win. After the match, the masked figure revealed themselves to be Rhea Ripley.
A New Queen is Crowned
At Wrestlemania last month, Charlotte Flair used a referee injury to sneak a win over Ronda Rousey. Since then, both women have been at each other’s throats on Friday Night Smackdown. To settle the score, an I Quit match was set up between them for WWE Wrestlemania Backlash. In a match that saw both women brawl into the crowd and around the area, the title was decided in the ring. Flair attempted to use a chair but had the tables turned on her. Rousey locked in a chair-assisted armbar and Flair quit in the middle of the ring.
The Bloodline Stands Tall
The main event for Wrestlemania Backlash was a star-studded 6-Man Tag Team Match. The Bloodline went toe to toe with Drew McIntyre and RK-Bro. The action was hot and heavy from the start, with the crowd cheering bell to bell. In the end, Riddle hit a top rope RKO onto Jay Uso and nearly got the win for his team. After popping up, Riddle was floored by a spear from Reigns resulting in a Bloodline win.
