We are all set for the first pay-per-view event after WrestleMania 38 with as many as 4 rematches from WWE’s flagship event of the year, set up for the night.
Cody Rhodes will be in action against The Visionary as we are expecting another classic between the two veterans. The Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey “I Quit” Match promises to be an intense affair. Are we going to witness some surprise returns at the event?
Let’s start with the live results of WWE WrestleMania Backlash.
Cody Rhodes versus Seth Rollins
Rollins complained after his loss at WrestleMania to Cody saying he was not prepared for the American Nightmare. This time he has no excuses. As the match began, Rollins had a couple of Rhodes’ moves scouted. The Visionary started ruthlessly and sent Cody crashing outside the ring after delivering a running knee strike.
Back inside the ring, Rollins got the headlock in and kept wearing down the fan-favorite. Rhodes managed to get some offense going as he dropped Rollins face-first after lifting the Architect above his shoulder and followed it up with the Disaster Kick. Rhodes went for another Disaster Kick but Rollins pushed him over the ropes. Rollins went outside the ring and pushed him into the barricade and slammed his head into the announce desk.
The former Legacy member delivered a thunderous superplex from the middle rope. Back inside the ring, Cody Cutter gave Rhodes a two count. Rollins hit an enzuigiri and followed it up with a Superkick for a two count of his own. Both men countered each other’s finishers.
Rollins hit the Falcon Arrow on Rhodes for another near fall as the crowd began chanting “This is awesome!” He followed it up with a beautiful frog splash for another two count. Rhodes went up on the top rope this time but Rollins caught him and hit a superplex off the top rope.
The former Universal Champion went for another Falcon Arrow but Rhodes countered into the Cross Rhodes but Rollins got his feet up on the rope. Rollins evaded a moonsault and hit a Pedigree for a two count.
A frustrated Rollins started trash talking and hit Rhodes with kicks to the head and then set up for Dusty Rhodes’ Bionic Elbow but was countered. The match ended when Rollins rolled up Rhodes and got hold of the latter’s tights but to his shock, the American Nightmare countered and got hold of the tights of Rollins to beat the heel.
Winner – Cody Rhodes
Grade – A
Bobby Lashley versus Omos
Bobby Lashley started the match strongly as he unloaded with some heavy punches on the big man. However, a little distraction from MVP helped Omos to take control of the match. The Colossus hit a Snake Eyes and followed it up with a big boot giving a tribute to The Undertaker.
Lashley finally managed to get back into the match as he tied up Omos to the top rope and assaulted him. MVP tried to free Omos but the Almighty caught him outside the ring and was about to lock his former friend in a Hurt lock but his opponent recovered and brought him back inside the ring. Lashley caught Omos in the Hurt lock but Omos managed to push his rival into the ropes to break the count.
Lashley went for a spear but Omos countered sending him shoulder-first into the ring post. With the referee’s back turned, MVP hit Lashley with a cane to allow Omos to drop the former WWE Champion and get the victory with a pinfall.
Winner – Omos
Grade – B
We get a backstage interview of Paul Heyman and The Usos where the Wise Man stated that The Bloodline will teach RK-Bro and Drew McIntyre a lesson later on in the show.
Edge versus AJ Styles – Damian Priest barred from ringside
