Wrestling Backlash Predictions

Apr 23, 2008
Good evening ladies and gentleman. Welcome to another edition of "The Spotlight" with your very own General Manager of REVOLUTION, American. Last week, we reviewed my thoughts of what I was to believe to be the Top 5 matches of Wrestlemania 24. This week, we will be talking about my Backlash Predictions which involves the 4 matches already made up to last night's edition of RAW.

1) Batista vs Shawn Michaels: RAW General Manager William Regal announced on Monday Night RAW that the match between "The Animal" Batista and the "Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels has been official. Now let's go over what led to this matchup:

Wrestlemania 24: In what was considered the "toughest match of his career", Shawn Michaels defeated his mentor Ric Flair aka "naitch" and earned himself a new nickname, which is "The man that retired Ric Flair". Before delivering the deciding blow "Sweet Chin Music", Shawn Michaels uttered the words "Im sorry...I love you".

Monday Night RAW: Shawn Michaels appeared on RAW and explained the emotional roller-coaster that he has been going through since retiring Ric Flair. Later on that evening, Batista literally stared down "The Showstopper" as he made his way down to the ring during Ric Flair's retirement ceremony and gave "The Nature Boy" a big hug and exchanged a few words.

Friday Night Smackdown: Shawn Michaels paid a visit to the land of Smackdown to address the fans on his emotional roller-coaster ( much like what he did on RAW ). He said that after sharing the hug with Ric Flair during the ceremony, he was finally beginning to find some closure. Batista then came out to the ring and called Shawn Michaels "selfish" for his actions at Wrestlemania and went on to say that HBK knew deep down inside that he did the wrong thing at Wrestlemania.

Last Night on RAW: Chris Jericho hosted another edition of the "Highlight Reel" with both Shawn Michaels and Batista being the special guests. After the Intercontinental Champion temporarily jumped on the "HBK Badguy Bandwagon" with Batista, he stepped aside to allow the two guests to air out there separate opinions on the Ric Flair situation. Batista fired at HBK by saying that there was no way in hell that he was sorry for the actions that he took and that he knows he can never trust the Showstopper to make the right decision again. Shawn Michaels fired back by asking Batista that if he was really a true friend of Ric Flair, then why didn't he talk the Nature Boy out of fighting "Mr. Wrestlemania" which he numerous opportunities to do so. HBK also pointed out to Batista that the only reason why Flair chose him instead of Batista was because Flair knew that HBK was the only one that would be able to carry the burden of retiring Ric Flair for the rest of his life.

My Pick for who will win at Backlash: ***Shawn Michaels will possibly win and silence any critics that believe that he did the wrong this at Wrestlemania.***

2) World Heavyweight Championship: The Undertaker vs Edge: At Wrestlemania, Edge made a valiant attempt to put an end to The Undertaker's undefeated Wrestlemania streak that had stood at 15-0. But The Phenom took in everything Edge had to offer in route to his 2nd consecutive Wrestlemania World Championship victory and running his undefeated record to 16-0.

Edge then tried to gain himself a slim advantage over the Deadman last Friday on Smackdown when him and Chavo interfered during the "Champion vs Champion-Brother vs Brother" match...but ended up finding himself on the wrong side of a chokeslam.

My Pick for who will win at Backlash: ***The Undertaker's reign of terror will continue...if the "Edge-heads" don't get involved.***

3) WWE Championship: Randy Orton vs JBL vs HHH vs John Cena: Randy Orton shocked the world at Wrestlemania when he defeated HHH and John Cena to retain his WWE Championship. William Regal came on Raw Monday night and announced that at Backlash, it will officially be Randy Orton vs JBL for the WWE Championship. Afterwards, Triple H made his claim to the WWE Championship saying that although he was busy with Ric Flair's retirement, he thought it was a joke that a man that goes slapping around leprechaun could possibly be a #1 contender. Then later on, after HHH was added into the mix, at this moment making it a Triple Threat Match, John Cena came out and made his claim at how the four of them ( referring to HHH, JBL and Randy and himself ) were the biggest guys in the WWE industry and how he thinks a Fatal Four Away Match would be a great way to exemplify that as a Backlash main event ( especially considering the fact that he defeated all three of them on separate occasions ). After making his claim to the title, he was awarded his opportunity to be in the match after defeating JBL and HHH in a 2 on 1 handicap match, with some "inadvertent help" from the WWE Champion, Randy Orton ( who laid out JBL with an RKO ).

My Pick for who will win at Backlash: ***John Cena will win and once again earn the right to say his old phrase "The Champ is Here!"***

4) ECW Championship: Kane vs Chavo Guerrero: To start off, I am glad that both Kane and Undertaker are heavyweight champions. However, I am not glad at how Kane won the ECW Championship from Chavo Guerrero. But after the events that took place last week on ECW when Kane picked up a tag team victory with CM Punk...only to get ambushed by Chavo Guerrero a week later during a "contract signing", I am led to believe that there will be no other choice then to have Kane defeat Chavo Guerrero at Backlash. Afterall, the only way I can honestly see Kane winning is if Chavo has his back-up men come help him again.

My Pick for who will win at Backlash: ***Kane will emerge victorious if no one comes in to interfere***

5) Big Show vs The Great Khali: I'm not sure if this match has been made official to the Backlash card yet, but when it does it will be one hell of a match. I mean you have two giants that will square off, trying to take each other down in one small square-sized ring. On The Great Khali's side, you have monster who can lay out any competitor with one vicious chop to the head. On The Big Show's side, you have a monster who is capable of laying out any competitor with one huge punch or even his devastating chokeslam. I think the deciding factor of this match will come down to who has more stamina and who dishes out more offensive power. And if The Great Khali does not turn into a coward and walk out the ring again, I think everyone knows who would win the match.

My Pick for who will win at Backlash: ***The Big Show for the mere fact that he does not hold back nor does he hit lightly.***
