We Review WWE Backlash (2017)

***Contains Spoilers!***

After  PaybackWWE gives the blue brand a shot at their PPV/Network event Backlash.

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Dolph Ziggler

Building it up since the Smackdown Live after WrestlemaniaShinsuke Nakamura finally makes his debut against Dolph Ziggler.

The match was generally good – as should be expected from these two. However, it was a little submission heavy in the beginning. It is interesting to see how Nakamura has enough swagger to get the crowd behind him even when he’s not doing as much.

The match was exciting and brawl heavy, with one noteworthy spot where Ziggler kicked Nakamura in the back of the head. It’s surprising to see a move like that from a company as concussion-conscience as WWE.

Nakamura hit the Kinshasa for the win.

Match rating: 3.75 stars (Out of 5)

The Good
  • - Good US Title Match - Nakamura's main roster debut - Entertaining tag match - Zayn and Harper got big wins
The Bad
  • - US Title match had kind of bogus ending - Women's match and Harper/Rowan felt like filler - Jinder didn't exactly look champion-caliber in his win.
