Roman Reigns continues to be your WWE Champion in the main event.– The pay-per-view was originally called a backlash – Reigns winning Cesaro after a long series of great matches. It was one of the strongest competitions on the list that allowed Bobby Lashley to retain his WWE Championship.
But while the show has several highs But it’s also very low in depth as well, the Miz match against Damian Priest Lumberjack turned out to be a bad hype for the Army of the Dead movie because Lumberjacks are … zombies really like it, just like everyone pretends they’re zombies. True, it’s terrible.
But if you skip that parody, this is a really good WWE show.
Roman Reigns sends Cesaro
Roman Reigns defeated Cesaro with surrender when he made Cesaro pass with a choking guillotine. This was a slow and structured match, similar to the reigns with Daniel Bryan, where Fastlane Reign worked on Cesaro’s arm throughout the second half of the race, and Cesaro did a great job of selling it. It makes the final stretch more dramatic.
Rating: 4 stars
After the match, Jey Uso came to the ring and attacked Cesaro.He was interrupted by Seth Rollins, who completely destroyed Cesaro. Rollins held Cezaro’s arm on the chair and pounded it into the joint. The show ended with Rollins hitting Caesar and posing on stage.
Bobby Lashley retains the WWE Championship
The WWE Championship Three Threats is a clash of titans in the best possible way. This match was a little psychological, it was just the big three who hit the shit apart for 15 minutes – and it was always fun.
Starting with Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre teaming up with Braun Strowman for a few minutes, while Lashley and McIntyre were arguing outside, Strowman bumped the pair with a warden flipped out of an apron. That’s a solid indicator of how the rest of the race will go.
Later, when Braun Strowman was eliminated in the band Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre fought on the ramp, McIntyre threw Lashley through the LED panels on the ramp, with the fireworks going off as Lashley dashed past. Strowman then returned and he and McIntyre were. Walk back and forth during the race This included a blast of Strowman McIntyre’s power across the broadcaster’s desk.
The success came when McIntyre clocked Strowman with a Claymore Kick before he took advantage of Lachley into the ring, throwing McIntyre out, throwing the spear at Strowman 1-2-3.
Rating: 4 stars You know what the ending will be like as soon as Lashley is “removed”, but this story is really fun.
Bianca Belair retains the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
I’ll be honest, I find it very difficult to get attention to this match after the failure of Lumberjack that preceded it, judging by my Twitter feed, I’m not the only one.
Bianca Belair maintained her position by pinning Bayley by rolling it up with the added use of braiding around one of Bayley’s legs.It was a creative painting. But it looked a bit awkward as Belair retreated to the two. Still, it’s fun to see WWE combine Belair’s braids into her big matches, like how she hit Sasha Banks with it at WrestleMania.
score: This is a good, long-lasting pairing, and both women work hard. I can’t give a fair rating because I was distracted by the terrible lumberjack competition.
The worst lumberjack competition of all time
The logger match between The Miz and Damian Priest is doubled as an ad for Batista’s new film Army of the Dead. The logger is all zombies from the movie Ugh.
It started with zombies around the ring. The broadcaster fled, and after a while we heard them say that it was now announcing. “From Safe,” then Miz and the Priest fight an awkward and underrated competition. At one point, they went outside and fought the zombies together. John Morrison intervenes on behalf of The Miz, then fights off the zombies outside, then Damien Priest enters his end, Hit The Lights to win. Zombies then mob the Miz
I can’t tell how stupid it is. It’s not as fun as The Firefly Funhouse from last year’s WrestleMania, it’s just silly. Not just bad wrestling, but bad TV.

Rey and Dominic Mysterio win the SmackDown tag title.
In a bad way, this is a formula.The Dirty Dawgs – Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler – brought Dominic Mysterio out on Kickoff, so Rey allegedly took both of them in a handicap match. As soon as the match began, it was clear where it was going to go.Ziggler and Roode would have had an edge over Rey and beat him until Dominic bravely came to his father’s aid. And that’s what happened – and it took forever.
Ziggler, Roode and Rey are amazing and everything they do looks great. There is a great famous place where Roode raised Mysterio and Ziggler came in and where Mysterio attempted suicide outside, but Ziggler caught him with a superkick, but it’s hard to care because you know it’s a little important. Until Dominic got into the ring
That said, things happened when Dominic arrived, Ziggler and Roode were both more heated, but then Dominic turned Superkick to Ziggler, and Ray was then tagged in the 619 hit on. Roode tags Dominic and takes Ziggler outside, then Dominic presses Frogslash to win.

Rhea Ripley beat Charlotte and Asuka.
I’m a little worried about this match. In general, all three women are great performers. But Ripley’s match against Asuka at WrestleMania has been disappointing, and the recent races in Raw are pretty dire too. But don’t worry, this is an outstanding opening match.Rhea Ripley won the match three times by pinning Asuka, according to Riptide powerslam.
There is actually not too much to say about the competition. Most were following a three-threat formula, with two women in and one woman. Each woman shone as the race progressed, earning a point where they dominated the other two. But the action is crisp and fluid, making watching from the bell fun.
The finale sequence kicks off as Asuka and Ripley double-faced Charlotte. Then there’s the fun point Charlotte fights back and hits Natural Selection twice, then gets points twice when she tries to pin both Asuka and Ripley at the same time. Then all three had a back-and-forth sequence, culminating in Charlotte on the outside and Asuka pinned behind Riptide on the inside.
Asuka was actually the most shining during the event, anticipating her death.

The Kickoff Show saw the United States Championship Open Challenge from Sheamus, answered by Ricochet Sheamus, winning the match by hitting the knee. But Ricochet later mocked Sheamus and they entered a short fight, meaning we might be able to see the match in Raw tomorrow.
