WWE BackLash Results 2017

Preshow
Tye Dillinger  vs Aiden English – Winner Tye Dillinger

Erick Rowan came out in his sheep mask, took it off, put it back on… much to the confusion of the pre show hosts…

Main Card
Dolph Ziggler vs Shinsuke Nakamura
Ziggler hits the ring first… no one cares, this crowd is super pumped for Nakamura (poor Ziggler). Nakamura comes to the ring, and the crowd is super pumped. They start out with some chain wrestling, but Nakamura tries to overpower and outsmart Ziggler rather than just wrestle him. Ziggler takes control with a submission but also bends the hand of Nakamura. Nakamura reverses and works Zigglers arm. This is a very back and forth match, with both men looking strong. Ziggler gets a hell of a dropkick in on Nakamura, followed by a big elbow drop. Ziggler takes too much time and Nakamura cuts him off with a knee to the guy then a leg to the head. There is more back and forth, too much too fast to write. Ziggler catches Nakamura in a HUGE DDT, taking Nakamura down again. Both men get up Zigger gets cut off again, but almost gets Nakamura on a roll up, then again on another two count. Nakamura looks hurt. Both men are down, but Ziggler gets back up first, and goes for a superkick, but Nakamura dodges but Ziggler catches him in the ZigZag, and Nakamura kicks out. HOLY SHIT. This match is a fire first match. There is so much back and forth its impossible for me to keep up. After a few more minutes Skinsuke Nakamura takes the win by pinfall after hitting the Kinshasa.

Ridiculous “Fashion Files” promo from Breezango…

SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match
Breezango vs The Uso’s(c)
Tyler Breeze is still wearing his ridiculous janitor costume from his promo. He even mops the ring when he gets tagged in and trips up one of the Uso’s with the mop. Its a loaded mop to the face of Jimmy Uso! The mop gets broken and thrown out by Jay Uso. Jay goes to the top but Breeze rolls out. Breeze is literally just rolling back and forth across the ring. When Jay goes back for him, he kicks him in the head. Fandango gets tagged in, and Jay takes over, drags him over to tag Jimmy in. Fandango takes control and gets a 2 count on Jimmy. Breeze is now in a new costume dressed as an old lady… hahahahaha The crowd chants “Lets go grandma” Well Grandma throws a hell of a dropkick. This is totally my kinda wrestling. Breeze channels Mae Young and gives Jay a face ride… Jay tags Jimmy back in, Jimmy pulls Breeze outta his ridiculous costume and throws it at JBL. This match is a riot. Fandango almost gets a pin on Jay Uso but he kicks out. Jay tags Jimmy back in and he stops Breeze in his tracks but can’t keep him down for the pin. This match is extremely entertaining. The Uso’s chuck Breeze into the crows, but Fandango takes them out from the outside. They get back in the ring, and cut off Fandango, Jay pins Fandango for the win… Wait was he even the legal man??? The last minute of that match was a bit of a clusterfuck.

Sami Zayn vs Baron Corbin
Corbin comes out strong. Zayn is holding his own pretty well against the big man, but will his flippy style make up for the aggressiveness of Corbin? Zayn gets a good back flip take down off the barricade on Corbin, then get back to the ring and have a bit of back and forth but Corbin drives Zayn hard into the corner and then proceeds to stomp him out then give him a big back breaker. Corbin keeps control throws Zayn off a turnbuckle, Zayn is hurting with little time to recover. He tries to fight his way up but Corbin grabs him in a bear hug. Corbin at 6’8 makes Zayn look little. Zayn elbows his way out of the hold, but gets caught back up in another bear hug. Zayn gets out, but Corbin throws him into the ropes for a backdrop, but Zayn kicks him in the head, and dodges out of the way, Corbin dives to nothing outside, missing Zayn. Zayn goes to the top but before he can jump, Corbin is back in the ring and cuts him off. Corbin is a monster. Hes yelling at Zayn to stay down. Every time Zayn tries to get up, he hits him, and yells at him again. Corbin goes for another strike but Zayn cuts him off, and gets control for 3 seconds. Corbin cuts him off again, but Zayn gets up top and does a cross body on Corbin for the 2 count. Corbin moves so fast for a guy his size, its incredible. Corbin is handing out a ton of abuse to Zayn. Corbin gives Zayn a massive choke-breaker, and gets a 2 count on the pin. Corbin takes Zayn up to the top turnbuckle for a suplex, but Zayn finds it in him to fight back. Zayn takes Corbin down in a sunset flip power bomb off the top! Another 2 count… Zayn goes for a DDT is cut off, Zayn goes for the Exploder but is cut off, Zayn then does a crucifix pin, 2 count. Corbin hits the Deep 6, 2 count… Corbin continues his assault on Zayn. This continues to go back and forth, Zayn kicks Corbin in the face, for the 3 count. Wow… that was pretty wild.

Jinder Mahal pulls up in a limo and calls Chicago a bunch of haters… He says tonight he will turn the doubters and discriminators into believers, that his is the modern day Makaraja, then cuts a promo in Punjabi.

6 Woman Tag Match
James Ellsworth comes to the ring, he cuts a promo and says he is the Micheal Jordan of Sports Entertainment, the epitome of masculinity. Puts himself over a little more, then introduces Carmella. They are wearing ugly red gold and black matching outfits. Next to the ring is Tamina, shes looking ready to kick some ass. Natalya comes out in a dope ass outfit that is very Hart family. Their opponents, first to the ring is Becky Lynch, wearing her hair in a faux hawk. Next out is Charlotte Flair, (why do they trust her to to be their tag partner? ) and finally the current Smackdown Womens Champion, Naomi! My question is why haven’t they made her a glow in the dark belt dammit. The match starts with Tamina and Becky Lynch. Tamina aggressively attacks Becky, then tags in Natalya. Becky manages to get to her corner to tag in Charlotte. Nattie and Charlotte go back and forth a bit, Nattie tags Tamina back in, she assaults Charlotte, then tags in Carmella. Carmella shows good ability in fighting against Charlotte, but Charlotte uses her skills and reverses to tag in Naomi. Naomi takes Carmella out, but as she is really getting going Tamina attacks her from the corner. Carmella is a dirty fighter… She works Naomi over a bit, then tags Tamina back in. Tamina puts Naomi in a headlock but Naomi works out of it to be taken down by Tamina. Carmella gets tagged back in, then she tags Natalya in, and they try double teaming Naomi, but she dodges. Nattie and Naomi go back and forth, Nattie tags Tamina back in, as Naomi is about to tag Becky, Carmella pulls Becky off the apron. Nattie tagged back in Naomi seems to be getting worked over but then counters and tags in Becky. Becky takes on all three of the other women at once, then ends up in the ring with Nattie one on one. Becky gets a 2 count on Nattie. A bit more back and forth with Becky and Nattie with a lot of interference from Tamina. Nattie makes Becky Lynch Tap Out with the Sharpshooter.

United States Championship Match
AJ Styles vs Kevin Owens(c)
AJ comes out first to mass applause, his mom hair looking like he been chasing toddlers around the locker room. Owns comes to the ring, looking much like an angry toddler. The audience seems pretty stoked for this match (This is a ROH Smarks wet dream) The match starts off with a lot of back and forth, Styles tries to wear down Owens with headlocks and holds. Owens gives him some of his own medicine. The crowd is chanting for Styles… Owens smartly powders from the ring.

Owens takes control and knees Styles in the back, then gets him in a choke hold from behind. Styles is getting worn down with this choke but is fighting his way out. Owens cuts him off with a DDT then gives him a few senton’s for good measure, tries for the cover, but gets a 2 count. Owens goes back for the choke hold. Styles works his way up, but gets dropped on his back by his hair by Owens. Styles manages to get a quick kick to the head on Owens, but it doesn’t stun Owens for long.

Owens gets to his feet, and gives Styles a few slaps to the face, but Styles counters with a Pele kick. Styles gets up and beats Owens down. AJ takes Owens to the top and Owens counters with a suplex from the top, for another 2 count… Crowd chants, This is AWESOME… I just woke an old guy up from his chicken nap at the coffee shop, cause I yelled.

Styles hits Owens with the Forearm, then tries to set Owens up on the table, but falls through the opening in the table and is hung up on wires, Owens gets back to the ring, and retains his championship by count out. BOOOOOOOOOOOOO What a shitty ending to a great match.

Luke Harper vs Erick Rowan
Rowan comes to the ring in a new mask. This one is a pigface gasmask combo. Harper comes out and the match starts right away. I am not sure how much to write, as it’s clear these two are just gonna beat the shit out of each other. Both of these are huge dominating guys. They also know each others moves as they are “family” or were in some sense of the word. Rowan is laying into Harper hard, but Harper isn’t backing down. Rowan gets a cover after a dropkick… that’s a huge dude to get that high off the ground! Its really not looking good for Harper at this point. He is going to have to think of Rowans weaknesses and use them to his advantage. Rowan gets another 2 count on Harper. Rowan goes to the top for a Splash but Harper rolls out of the way. Both men are on the outside, Harper is knocking some sense into Rowan then gets back into the ring, and jumps between the ropes, pinning Rowan between the announce table. Harper seems to be gaining some steam, gets a 2 count on Rowan. Harper gets another 2 count after a side slam, Harper then gets cut off and Rowan has control again, and power bombs him for a 2 count. Harper is down, Rowan is dragging his lifeless body about a bit. Harper was playing dead, gets a 2 count. Now both men are going shot for shot back and forth in the ring. Rowan tries to power bomb Harper but Harper reverses, and super kicks him in the face, HUGE clothesline, and Harper gets the 3 count. Considering I usually hate watching the big guys fight, this was one hell of a match up.

WWE Championship Match
Jinder Mahal vs Randy Orton(c)
Jinder Mahal is HUGE. It seems his neck is disappearing. Randy Orton comes out looking cool and calm in the face of a monster, but will his experience be enough to retain his title over Mahal? Usually Orton is one of the guys in the best shape in the company, but it looks like Jinder Mahal has surpassed him on that. Marriage must be making Orton soft… lol. Orton doesn’t even wait for the bell to ring, and jumps Mahal. He tosses Mahal outside then scares off the Singh Brothers from ringside… Orton beats on Mahal on the announce table, then throws him back into the ring. Mahal is looking a little scared of the Viper. I guess he never hung out with the snake charmers. (he should get one… hahahaha) Mahal looks pretty mad, he makes super funny faces when he is mad. They go back and forth, Orton almost gets an RKO, Mahal powders, Orton chases him and knocks him down. Mahal is crawls around at ringside, Orton comes for him, and he throws Ortin into the LED board. Mahal gets Orton back into the ring, and starts working his shoulder. Mahal gets a 1 count cover on Orton. The crowd is very divided, half cheering for Mahal, half saying he sucks. Orton gets back into control of the match, stomps Mahal’s knee a few times. Mahal tried a backslide on Orton, but couldn’t get it so gave him an arm breaker then a knee drop to the chest. Mahal continues to work the shoulder of Randy Orton. Orton works his way out, and send Mahal flying outta the ring. then gives him a back drop on the announce table.

Orton climbs to the top with Mahal to try to superplex him, but Mahal cuts him off and and up falling on the turnbuckle for a nut shot. Orton then goes for the superplex on Mahal again and gets it! Orton goes for the cover but only gets a 2 count. Mahal gets back up and these two are going blow for blow… Orton throws two good clotheslines at Mahal then Power slams him. Orton then gives him and up and over fall away slam but only gets the 2 count on Mahal again… Mahal hits Orton in the throat, gets a 2 count. Both men re down, working to their feet. Mahal looks pissed. Orton gives him a backbreaker, but his shoulder is not holding up. Mahal has rolled under the ropes, Orton pulls him back in for a DDT off the ropes.

Orton puts the Singh brothers through the Spanish and English announce tables, or at least tries, these guys are too light… hahaha Orton Takes them both to the ring for a double DDT, then Mahal sneaks up on Orton and hits The Khallas, for the 3 count pin.

JINDER MAHAL IS YOUR NEW WWE CHAMPION!

Wow what a PPV! This was leagues above payback. Overall I thought the matches were great, and the only disappointment was the end of the US Championship match. This will probably be in my top 5 PPV’s of 2017.

With the global markets opening today, there has been some interesting movement in the WWE Backlash PPV on the WWE Network. Jinder Mahal, who became a heavy favorite at -1125 to defeat Randy Orton. It seems the wider market has issued a correction on this match, and while still favored Jinder’s chances have decreased to -405. This is one to keep an eye on as the world is now backing Orton with their money. Will the gamblers continue the trend of backing Orton?

Another wild shift leaves Sami Zayn vs Baron Corbin in a dead heat, both “favored” at -120. This is what sports books generally do when they can’t project a winner and big money wagered on either of these men would surely move the line.

Shinsuke Nakamura’s ridiculously favorable odds have been cut but are still strikingly impressive. Odds of -4500 downgraded to +2600 posits the question of why anyone is backing Ziggler at all.

Kevin Owens vs AJ Styles is unchanged seeing Kevin Owens with odds of -720. Styles earlier this week was favored to win, but the odds flipped completely this weekend.

These odds are all graded under “end of broadcast grading”. Often in WWE, the decision is reversed or a match is restarted after the initial decision is commonplace. The “end of broadcast grading” is designed to account these “Dusty Finish” situation.

My WWE BackLash Predictions

The odds aren’t out yet, but I like to write up my guesses on who will come out on top at WWE PPV’s.  Here are my picks for WWE BackLash on Sunday May 21st!

Shinsuke Nakamura vs Dolph Ziggler – Nakamura all the way

SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi, Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch vs. Natalya, Carmella & Tamina (Six-Woman Tag Team Match) – So confused as to why Charlotte is on the baby face team. I have a feeling she will turn on her teammates. I give this to Natalya, Carmella, and Tamina.

United States Champion Kevin Owens vs. AJ Styles – Owens is losing that belt… AJ will be the new US Champion!

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. Breezango – While Breezango looks fabulous, I don’t think they are as comfortable with each other as a tag team as the Usos are. Usos will retain the titles.

WWE Champion Randy Orton vs. Jinder Mahal – Jinder Mahal is killing it these days, but will his skills match up against Orton’s cunning ways? If he doesn’t fall into a trap, he may be able to beat Orton, but knowing Orton, he will put up a fight, and pull every trick out to retain his title. Orton will retain the WWE Championship.

What is Bray Wyatt’s House of Horrors Match?

The next Smackdown branded WWE PPV Backlash on May 21, 2017 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. That give 7 weeks of build for this event, which has been unheard of for decades. There will be a RAW branded PPV in the interim, Payback in San Jose, CA on April 30.

Despite this stretch until Backlash, Smackdown already seems to be building towards the main event, a Wrestlemania rematch. Bray Wyatt is invoking his rematch clause against Randy Orton for the WWE Championship. Cryptic as ever, Wyatt has challenged Orton to a unique specialty match that no one seems to know the rules to but Bray himself.

I want to fight in a different kind of match.

One that will not only push your body,

but it will push your mind as well.

I promise I’m going to drive you to a new level of insanity.

You will be twisted far more than you’ve been twisted before.

Not just mentally, but physically as well in what I like to call a House of Horrors match.”

  • Bray Wyatt, Smackdown 4/4/17

Randy has readily accepted, despite not knowing the nature of this match. What will be revealed about this mysterious bout in the weeks leading to Backlash? It’s worth mentioning that though the challenge has been accepted, it has not been officially announced for Backlash as of press time. There has been much speculation about what exactly a “House of Horrors” match will entail.

Some early speculation is that this will be very similar to an “Asylum Match”, innovated by Dean Ambrose against Chris Jericho at Extreme Rules last year. This match saw a cage with weapons suspended above for the taking. This seems like a non-creative route to go for a main event match. The Asylum Match was not a main event and it wasn’t exactly praised as a match concept.

Could this be a match held outside of the arena in a remote location like a haunted mansion or even a return to to the Wyatt Compound? Probably not.

This match could very well be inspired by the WCW Halloween Havoc 1991 opener of Sting, El Gigante, & The Steiner Brothers (Rick & Scott Steiner) Vs. Big Van Vader, Cactus Jack, Abdullah The Butcher, & The Diamond Studd. The climax here saw Abdullah being electrified after being strapped into an electric chair that descended into the ring. You can actually watch this match on the WWE Network by clicking here.

The most likely scenario with what we currently know is this will be a special effects match. Expect similar pageantry to the light effects the encapsulated the canvas at Wrestlemania or Wyatt’s ability to teleport. It’s an experimental match type that could fail miserably, but is a risk worth taking because it could end up being well received as part of the evolution of pro wrestling.

WWE Backlash LIVE RESULTS

Baron Corbin defeated Apollo Crews

In an unadvertised pre-show match Apollo Crews took on Baron Corbin. The match showcased Apollo’s athleticism and Corbin’s Brutality. A king-sized Lariat was only about to put down Crews for a two count, followed by Apollo administering an angle Slam for another 2 count. Baron manages to hit a Deep Six for another nearfall shortly before finishing off Crews with an End of Days. No line was set for this match but it was nothing less than competitive as Baron continues to regain his momentum.

A nice tribute for the fifteen year anniversary of 9/11 is shown to start the PPV.

Shane McMahon’s music hits and he enters the ring to the usual fanfare and Daniel Bryan does the same. They thank the audience before explaining what’s on the plate for Backlash despite everyone already being sold on the event, having bought a ticket. The 6-Pack Women’s Championship starts thankfully. Becky Lynch is a massive favorite at -1050 as the lines closed for this bout for the “Big Blue”.

All the women brought a significant contribution to this match, which set the tone for the PPV and may end up stealing the show altogether. A satisfying subplot with Nikki Bella and Carmella being kept apart for a decent part of the match. Alexa Bliss stepped it up a notch, hitting the Glitz Flip better than she ever has and adding superlative vocalization to the match. Naomi utilized the Cattle Mutilation and pulled off a daring Springboard Dive to the outside. Natalya seemed to be controlling traffic in this match, but in the end it was Becky’s night.

Becky Lynch defeated Nikki Bella, Naomi, Alexa Bliss, Natalya and Carmella

Natalya powerbombed Alexa Bliss while at the same time Naomi hit a blockbuster. Naomi gets the pin on Bliss. Shortly thereafter Naomi taps out to a Sharpshooter by Natalya. Nikki pins Natty after hitting her new finisher and Carmella sneaks a quick pin on Bella. Becky and Carmella are the last two women and after a series of suplexes, Becky submits Carmella with The Disarmer. No upset here as Becky is the first WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion.

The Usos defeated The Hype Bros

The Usos have a new look to go with their heel persona and are favored here. The Hype Bros showed a plethora of fire here but Zack Ryder ended up tapping out to a half crab as the Usos advance.

The Miz vs Dolph Ziggler

A masterfully crafted epic with a captivating backstory. The Miz has totally reinvented himself and is developing a mean streak that hasn’t been seen of him before. His attack on Ziggler’s leg ended up being the story arc of the match. Dolph fought convincingly from underneath, even evading the pangs of a figure 4 leglock. It would take interference by Maryse and a foreign object to grant Miz the opening to deliver the skull crushing finale and retain his Intercontinental Championship. Immediately before the match The Miz was favored heavily, although this match flipped in both directions over the weekend.

Kane defeats Bray Wyatt in a No Holds Barred Match

Bray picks up a win against Bray by forfeit and is issued a new opponent in Kane. Lack of build hurt the chances of this being a memorable match, although seeing a senton putting Kane through the announce table was enjoyable. Orton shows up and hits an RKO on Wyatt and Kane follows up with a chokeslam for the win. There were not any odds on this match because it was announced on the spot. The Orton match ended up being canceled with no action taken by sportsbooks.

Heath Slater and Rhyno defeat The Usos to become the first ever Smackdown Tag Team Champions

The Usos are embracing being villains and Heath Slater is more beloved by this crowd than ever before. Slater nearly gets the cover after a leaping DDT but the pin is broken up and after Rhyno manages to sneak in a Gore behind the referees back, Heath scored the pinfall and champions are crowned.
