Reminds me of when Lesnar was delivering his classic Germans and seemed to forget Seth Rollins is a little lighter than John Cena, ended up firing him across the ring!

Jinder being champ is only going to turn me away from Smackdown. He's shite - Rusev does the anti-American shtick much better, for one, and Jinder being the worst member of 3MB, including its incarnation with Hornswoggle, means his matches are going to continue to be pretty pish too.

I enjoyed the tag match and Styles/Owens though, so the show was still halfway decent overall.

But it'll probably cause 1.3bn people to tune in, so . . . #BestForBusiness

Aye, also a bit of inexperience from the Singh's who seemed to not know what move Orton was going to do as both of them rotated after he let go.

Yeah yer not wrong but I'm still intrigued to see if he can handle it or who they choose for his next opponent.

You joke, but the Indian commentators were really fucking chuffed. INDIA NUMBER ONE.

On the flipside, Big Dave Meltzer was talking about how ticket sales were doing alright for Backlash until they announced the main event of Jinder vs Orton, and then they totally stalled. Laughing

I've always heard all of this and all of that about Chicago crowds, but they really did add to the PPV the other day. Them being so into the Taggers really helped elevate it, and what a match it was. Holy hell, I actually watched it again when I got up this morning, and then got big sadness because they've no Breezango merch on the WWE Shop. But that match gave me so much energy that I ended up watching the whole PPV, even though I really thought Backlash was going to be a total stinker. It wasn't though, it was good.

A lot of the Jinder reaction seems to have been quite positive, if bemused. It's all happened a bit too fast for me but they did make him look alright back at Mania and that was before he moved to SD. I do find him a bit dull between the ropes but the superstar shakeup really fucked smackdown over for heels. You've got Corbin, Owens, Jinder Mahal, Eric Rowan and Ziggler. Am I missing anyone (Rusev's injured right?)? When you assume that Corbin is going to have Summerslam plans and they want to protect him from main eventing just yet, while Owens and Ziggler were in programs of their own, they sort had to make some other heel on the roster look legit. Sure there's the whole India thing with him but he looks intimidating to someone like me who missed 3MB and while his match was nothing special it did tell a decent story and had plenty of drama.

I'd probably say it was the second best singles match of the night, behind Owens - Styles. The Nakamura match underwhelmed, both competitors are capable of so much more and it just didn't feel like it had the same animosity as the Owens match to me. It wasn't bad, I just think it was stuck somewhere between third and fourth gear.

Some will say that this really underscores SmackDown as the B-tier brand. I'm happy to concede that as being true, but I also don't care. I was entertained, which is more than I can say for Raw, and even some of its PPVs.
