Movie Reviews

Backlash Still Proves To Be My Personal Favourite of all ppv
Sniper3:16 | Perth, WA, Australia | 07/15/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"6-Man Tag Team Match
The Dudley Boyz vs. X Factor
A not too long or too short of a match. Lots of moves that were directed down south of the human anatomy if you know what I mean. X Factor win the battle although they did not win the war at Backlash. Good Opener. 6.5/10

Hardcore Championship Match
Rhyno (c) vs. Raven
Hell Yes a brutal and fantastic hardcore match with a great diversity of weapons used within the match such as shopping trolleys, kitchen sink, stop signs etc. My favourite moment was when Rhyno gored the shopping cart after raven moved. I miss these hardcore matches. 10/10

Duchess of Queensburry Match
Chris Jericho vs. William Regal
An above-average match between Regal and Jericho in my opinion much better than their match at Wrestlemania 17 and much longer. The downside to this match is that stupid duchess kept changing the rules of the match into the favour of Regal. First no win by submission and also no Dq although Jericho did get his revenge on duchess through the walls of Jericho. 7/10 due to the rules changing every 2 mins.

30-Minute Ultimate Submission Match
Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit
This match should've of happened at Wrestlemania 17. The Angle and Beniot feud of 2001 is one of my most favourite feuds of all time. A whole arsenal of different submission moves were used by both competitors and of course their own specials. The last 10 minutes were really intense due to that Beniot was behind 3 to 2 and then came back to make a draw 3/3. The match was extended a further 5 minutes under sudden death which in the end crowned Beniot the winner and in my opinion deserved it after being screwed by Angle at WM17. 10/10

Last Man Standing Match
Shane McMahon vs. The Big Show
This was definitely the highlight of the night. Some weapons were used by Shane O Mac such as a kendo stick, steel chair, keep out sign and either a cloth soaked with chloroform or something. Suddenly Test and Vince McMahon interfered in the match lifting the suspense. The ending actually made me jump as Shane did an elbow drop of the 50ft scaffold onto the Big Show. Test helped Shane up while the big show was counted out for 10 Shane wins, a Fantastic Match. 10/10

European Championship
Triple Threat Match
Eddie Guerrero vs. Christian vs. Matt Hardy (c)
The Crowd weren't really into this match after the last man standing match but overall it was pretty enjoyable. The match did indeed force you to wonder who was going to walk away Euro champ although until Edge and Jeff hardy interfered it was pretty clear that Matt was going to retain. A nice short solid title match. 7.5/10

WWE Title/Intercontinental Title/Tag Team Titles match
Stone Cold Steve Austin [WWE Champion] and Triple H [Intercontinental Champion] vs. Kane and the Undertaker [Tag Team champions]
Winners take all
I was very much surprised of how great this main event with the winner take all situation I believe was fair for Taker & Kane. This was a brutal long 20 minute brawl between the brothers of destruction against Stone Cold & Triple H. Steph got big booted in the face for her interference. Kane was double teamed throughout the majority of the match his left arm being a pin point bullseye for HHH and the rattlesnake. Taker chases after Austin through the crowd leaving Kane & Triple H until Vince interfered giving hunter a sledgehammer to which was used on Kane in the face. Stone cold and HHH become the new tag champs. 9/10

60/70 which is 85% meaning that if you are a true wrestling fan you need to buy this DVD immediately none of the matches will let you down."
The Tag Team Champs meet the 2 Man Power Trip.....
the one and only | I live south of Parts Unknown | 04/23/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The 2001 Backlash still stands as the best Backlash so far. With a last man standing match, a hardcore match, a 30 minute ultimate submission match, and four of the baddest men in the WWE fighting in the main event, this is definately worth it.

Dudley Boyz vs. X-Factor:

This was okay for an opener. The crowd was chanting for tables the whole match. I never saw X-Factor live, but they sure made a unique tag team. X-Factor wins after the "X Marks the Spot" double drop kick. After the match X-Pac gets sent through a table, courteosy of the Dudley Boyz. 7/10

Hardcore Championship Match
Rhyno [Champion] vs. Raven:

Brutal hardcore match. Raven gets hammered by a shopping cart, then both men knock each other around with steel chairs and trash cans. Painful moment was when Rhyno gored the shopping cart after Raven moved. Rhyno prevails and hits the gore on Raven to win. 8.5/10

Duchess of Queensburry Match
Chris Jericho vs. William Regal:

Okay, first of all they kept changing the damn rules everytime Jericho kept winning. First there was a time limit, then no submissions to win the match, finally no disqualifications. Jericho finally put the Walls of Jericho on the Dutchess, who was at ringside, until Regal clobbers him with a chair to win. 7.5/10 strange match because of the stipulations and the Dutchess angle.

30-Minute Ultimate Submission Match
Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit:

This was one great match. These two guys had some of the best technical wrestling in 2001 and this was the highlight of their fued. The man who had the most submission victories at the end wins. Both men managed to make the other tap out to arm bars, and their own holds. At around 10 minutes left Angle had about 3 submissions and Benoit had 2. Then at the last second Benoit makes Angle tap out to Angle's own hold and the match ended.

The answer to the unclear winner was sudden death, and after a few minutes Benoit managed to make Angle tap out with the crossface. 10/10 Nice match, the best one these two had in 2001.

Last Man Standing Match
Big Show vs. Shane McMahon:

The ironic thing was that these two were allies just one year prior to this match. Some weapons were used by Shane O' Mack, including a kendo stick, a steel chair, and even an rag soaked in ether. An appearance by Mr. McMahon and Test made the match that more exciting.

The ending was unbelievable, as Shane climbs 50 feet up a scaffold and gives an elbow drop to the Big Show! Shane McMahon wins a brutal Last Man Standing Match. 9/10

European Championship
Triple Threat Match
Eddie Guerreroe vs. Christian vs. Matt Hardy [Champion]:

To tell the truth, I don't know why this match was on the card, it was the second worst match on the DVD. Edge and Jeff Hardy both make appearances and Jeff helps his brother win the match. 7/10

World Heavyweight Title/Intercontinental Title/Tag Team Titles match
Stone Cold Steve Austin [World Heavyweight Champion] and Triple H [Intercontinental Champion] vs. Kane and the Undertaker [Tag Team champions]
Winners take all:

This was a wild 20 minute plus brawl between the tag team champions and the Intercontinental champion and the World Heavyweight champion. All through the match both Stone Cold and Triple H tried to leave going through the crowd but the Brothers of Destruction chased them down. Stephanie was at ringside and gets knocked down after trying to help out her husband.

Kanes arm was a big red bullseye because in the weeks prior he was beaten up and his arm was bandaged.Then Mr. McMahon makes an appearance again with a sledgehammer and Triple H nails Kane in the head with the sledgehammer. Triple H and Stone Cold Steve Austin win the tag team titles. 9/10

The main event, last man standing match, ultimate submission match, and the hardcore match are four very good reasons why to get this DVD. And to think most people are saying this is one of the worst ppvs of 2001! 2004 would have killed for a ppv like this....

"Here are the matches for Backlash 2001

1.X-Factor vs. Dudley Boys-this is i think a great opener,even tho the dudleys lost.

2.Rhyno vs. Raven (Hardcore Championship)-Probably the best match of the night they pretty much use everthing againt each other.

3.Matt hardy vs. Christian vs. Eddie Gurrereo triple threat match (European Championship)-an ok match,edge and jeff hardy interfere and matt hary retains the title.

4.William Regal vs. Chris Jericho (Duches of QueensBerry Rules Match)-In this one the rules are all in favor of Regal,and as a result Jericho gets roobed.

5.Chris benoit vs. Kurt angle (30-min Submission match)-this is a great match,they both have equal amount of taps and as a result they go into sudden death where Benoit makes Angle tap!

6.Shane McMahon vs. Big Show-this is of the chain,even tho Mr.McMahon interferes in the match,Shane sacrifices his body to win this one,Test also interferes.

7.Stone Cold and HHH vs. Undertaker and Kane (WWF,Intercontinental,and Tag-Team championship match)-this a great match i dont know why is so underrated,is not every pay-per-view that you see 3 titles on the line,overall very good bigman match."

"First off, Wrestlemania X-7 (best ppv of all time, for sure, my last time saying that) was a tough act to follow, and Backlash came to us with not as much hype, but some lofty expectations. At points it succeeded, at points it failed. The 6 Man Tag between X Factor and The Dudleyz to kick us off was good. Next was Raven vs. Rhyno in a Hardcore title match was spectacular. Great match. Next up was the Duchess of Queensbery Rules match between Y2J Chris Jericho vs. William Regal in an ok match. Next was the Ultimate Submission Match between Chris Benoit vs. Kurt Angle in a purely outstanding match. Next was The Last Man Standing Match between Shane McMahon vs. The Big Show which was a solid match and the greatest bump I have ever seen in my life!!! Next was Matt Hardy vs Christian vs Eddie Guererro for the European title. An ok match. Finally, WWF World Title, Intercontinental Title, and Tag Titles are on the line as Austin and HHH vs. Undertaker and Kane in a very dissapointing main event. Not as brutal as it was led on to be. Overall, an ok ppv."
