"1. WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: Shelton Benjamin (c) vs. Chris Jericho
This is one of the best openers I've ever seen. This is exactly what an opening match was meant to be: fast paced and exciting. Shelton and Jericho previously faced off at Taboo Tuesday 2004, where Jericho lost his title to Shelton. This match is much better, however, as these two work better together and put on good performances. This gets the crowd fired up and ready to go, because this is a great opener. 8.25/10
2. Tag Team Turmoil for the World Tag Team Championship
This match isn't bad, but its not really worth watching. None of the teams have anybody that stands out, its mostly card filler. Just skip this and on to the next match....4.5/10
3. Last Man Standing Match: Chris Benoit vs. Edge
This is a great match between these two. They use a ton of weapons and put on wonderful performances. This has a good pace and many memorable moments, as well as good wrestling along the way. This is a great way to come off of the Money in the Bank Ladder Match at Wrestlemania 21. Speaking of ladders, one makes a slight appearance, and Edge and Benoit make good use of it. I think Benoit should have won this one, but Edge gets the win (with help from the Money in the Bank briefcase) to keep his push going. 8.75/10
4. Kane w/ Lita vs. Viscera w/ Trish Stratus
I thought this would be an absolute train wreck, but it turned out to be not as horrifically awful as I imagined. Its actually relatively entertaining, but it is certainly no classic. These two big men are kind of slow, but its a short match so the pace is kept rather quick. Not required viewing, but you won't want to chug the stuff under the sink while watching it either. 4.5/10
5. Shawn Michaels & Hulk Hogan vs. Muhammad Hassan & Daivari
The "Dream Team" of HBK and the Hulkster make this one as entertaining as it can be. While Hulk is a little slower then he used to be, he can still make a match fun and exciting with his undeniable charisma and ring presence. Hassan and Daivari, however, can't really do much in the ring, and aren't very good. Still, Hulk and HBK find a way, like they always do, to make their matches entertain the fans. The crowd is hugely behind Hogan here, which is no suprise to anybody who has ever seen Hulk wrestle with a crowd that is awake. HBK and Hogan do a few cool double team moves, and make a good tag team. This is meant as a fun match, and thats what it ends up being. Hassan and Daivari barely contribute, but it doesn't hurt the match too much. Watch this to have fun, not to watch a wrestling classic. 7.5/10
6. World Heavyweight Championship Match: Batista (c) vs. Triple H
The much anticipated rematch from Wrestlemania, where Batista beat HHH for the title. Though this match starts out a little bit slow, it builds into a good match. Theres a nice spot with the ringside barricade, and some good wrestling throughout. Nothing spectacular, but a solid, well paced match thats worth viewing. Probably as good as their Wrestlemania match, but not better. 8.25/10
Backlash 2005 was a good way to continue after Wrestlemania 21, and provided us with four entertaining matches. Not amazing, but a solid card with some good matches throughout.
Match of the Night: Last Man Standing match: Benoit vs. Edge. This match was very good, and a good way to give Edge a push while making him look like something special. They use a bunch of weapons and get quite creative at times, making this an exciting, well wrestled match that shouldn't be passed up."
Great Follow Up to Wrestlemania!

Shelton Benjamin vs. Chris Jericho
Much better than the Taboo Tuesday match. It builds nicely to a fantastic finish. Non stop action. Great match.
Tag Team Turmoil
This was filler. No more, no less.
Last Man Standing
Chris Benoit vs. Edge
In the history of this match this ranks right at the top. These are hard to pull off because the finish is normally so anti-climactic. Not so here. Very physical and almost brutal match with some nifty spots using a ladder.
Kane vs. Viscera
On paper this looks like crap. Guess what? It's not bad at all. It's slightly above mediocre but this could've been a total diaster. It's watchable.
Shawn Michaels & Hulk Hogan vs. Muhammad Hassan & Daivari
The match everyone paid to see. It's very entertaining and Hogan's weaknessess are hard to exploit in this type of match. Doesn't dissappoint.
World Heavyweight Championship
Batista vs. Triple H
Not bad. The WM and Vengeance matches are great. This one was just ok but not a bad main event at all.

"Backlash 2005 was sweet ...2005 has been pretty good so far.
Champion Shelton Benjamin vs.Chris Jericho 10/10
Great Match...Match of the night and match of the year candidate..Both men put on a great show here. Very athletic match..The crowd was in Jerichos corner but Benjamin walks out with the gold.
Tag Team Championship (Tag Team Turmoil)
Champs William Regal&Tajiri vs.La Resistance vs.Heart Throbs vs.Hurrican and Rosey vs.Maven and Simon Dean 7/10
I thought this would be the worst match but really it was a good tag team contest..Never really slowed down..All the teams put on a pretty good match..Watch it i think ull like it.
Last Man Standing-Chris Benoit vs.Edge 9/10
Not the best LMS but i like this match...Edge and benoit work well together and they put together some sick bumbs..Good recillence by benoit in this match but in the end mr money in the bank is the last man standing.
Kane vs.Viscera 6/10
Not as bad as most thought it was..two big men fighting and brawling is going to give you a 10 star match but it was awful..Viscera really hasnt aged and kane puts on a pretty good performance.
Muhammed Hassan &Davairi vs.Hulk Hogan&Shawn Micheals 7/10
A Better then Average match..I remember how loud the arena was when hogan and micheals came down..This wasnt the greatest match ever but seeing hogan for at the time for one more match was great.
10/10 FOR the poses at the end of the match and the Christian Rap!
World Heavyweight Championship
World Champion Batista vs.HHH 7/10
HHH and Batista matches are solid matches not amazing but good matches.HHH is able to carry Batista to a good match and JBL cant that is why The Jbl batista matches arent great. HHH and Batista put on a solid show in the main Event at Backlash 2005.Batista walks out the Heavyweight Champion with a Demon Bomb."
