WWE Backlash '09: Triple Crowning of World Champions
Backlash took place last night in Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island.
There were seven professional wrestling matches scheduled on the event card, featuring wrestlers from Raw, Smackdown, and ECW.
The main event was for the World Heavyweight Championship between Edge and John Cena in a Last Man Standing match.
The Dark match was between Kofi Kingston and Dolph Ziggler, which Kofi won by pinfall.
Now, lets recap Backlash for one last time:
Kane Defeated CM Punk
With the Money in the Bank contract of CM Punk not on the line, the buildup of this match became lame.
CM Punk knew that it would be too hard to tackle the Big Red machine, so he started attacking right from the opening bell.
Though the Straightedge Superstar unleashed all his fury over Kane for the recent defeats by the Big Red minster, his fury was not enough to compete over Kane's size and strength.
In the end, a gigantic Chokeslam sealed Mr. Money in the bank's fate, and Kane pinned him to take out his frustrations over Punk for not winning the MITB Ladder match.
Chris Jericho Defeated Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat
Chris Jericho has finally slain the Dragon.
In his last Raw, Jericho was interrupted by WWE Hall of Famer, Ricky Steamboat.
Y2J then challenged Steamboat, which Steamboat accepted.
From the beginning of the match, Steamboat showed Y2J why he was the Dragon.
Using chops and punching every bit of Y2J, Steamboat wanted to seek revenge of Wrestlemania. But in the end, the first Undisputed champion of WWE, made Steamboat tap out in the center of the ring with the Walls of Jericho.
Though he didn't win the match, the Providence fans still gave a standing ovation to Ricky Steamboat for the respect he deserved for his services to WWE.
Jeff Hardy Defeated Matt Hardy
The brothers again battled it out, and this time the superior Hardy was the younger brother, Jeff.
The match was an epic one right from the beginning to the end, fueled by the brothers' deep hatred for each other.
Both the brothers went extreme against each other trying to make the other "quit" in front of the Providence fans.
After a hard fought battle, Jeff pulled out the heavy artillery, tying up Matt to a table and threatening to descend upon Matt from the top of the ladder.
Matt said to Jeff that their brotherly bond was too strong, and Jeff wouldn't want to hurt him so brutally.
But after pleading this, Matt said, "I Quit" for the Providence crowd to hear.
Despite his brother's surrender, Jeff chose to plunge down upon Matt for the recent defeats Matt had caused Jeff.
Now, the question remains whether three brutal matches are enough to end the sparkling feud between the Hardy Boys or not...
Great Khali's Kiss Cam Segment:
A wild edition of Great Khali's Kiss Cam segment took place last night.
First "Santina" Marella came out and told Khali that she would not kiss Khali as she was in love with another man... Smackdown's commentator, Jim Ross.
Before she could prove her love with JR, Beth Phoenix came in.
Beth told Santina that the situation has gone too far and demanded a rematch with Santina for the "Miss Wrestlemania" title.
Beth further questioned Khali's intelligence over his feelings for Santina. The Punjabi Playboy was enraged with her and knocked out the Glamazon.
With Beth knocked out, Santina called for the bell and quickly made the pin to retain her "Miss Wrestlemania" title.
While enjoying her victory over Beth, Khali comes inside the ring and demands a kiss from Santina. As Santina tries to run away, Khali pulls her bra off!
Santina runs away like a retarded monkey.
Christian Defeated Jack Swagger(c) for the ECW Championship
Christian kept his promise as he gave Jack Swagger his "biggest, strongest, and fastest" defeat to become the new ECW champion.
From the very beginning it was a very interesting match to watch as both men gave everything they had left in order to win.
There were many near falls and two counts until Swagger missed a three count with a roll up. When Christian got up, he attempted the Kill Switch successfully to make the pin, and become the new ECW champion.
The victory sets Christian at the top of the ECW roster and leaves Swagger with his "Strongest,fastest, and biggest" defeat by the Captain Charisma.
Randy Orton & Legacy Defeated Triple H(c), Shane McMahon & Batista in a Six Man Tag Team Match for the WWE Championship
Before the match could even begin, Triple H chased Randy Orton out of the arena, making the match a three on two Handicap.
But Randy Orton could still win the WWE title for the match's unique stipulations.
With five men battling it out, chaos spilled in and outside the ring. And in between that time, Batista grew frustrated with Ted Dibiase and wanted to hit him with a chair.
But Triple H took the chair away from him as Vickie Guerrero said that if any team member of HHH's gets disqualified, then Orton wins the WWE title.
But this brief distraction was too much for Orton to come back and hit the Game with an RKO. And to the utter astonishment of the Providence fans, the Game was able to get his shoulder up with the count of two.
Orton then hit the Game with a vicious punt and made the pin to become the new WWE champion as Batista and Shane O'Mac looked on.
Edge Defeated John Cena(c) in a Last Man Standing Match for the World Heavyweight Championship
Edge had his final chance to take the World Heavyweight championship off John Cena in a Last Man Standing match.
And, he did it with some help from big Show.
This win makes Edge a nine time winner of the World champion.
During the brutal battle for gold, Cena brought some steel ring posts to assault Edge, but Edge first attacked Cena with them.
Cena retaliated and Knocked Edge out.
The battle got even uglier when both men took the fight in the arena.
The brutal battle went on for sometime with the Ultimate Opportunist giving the con chair to Cena.
Still, Cena stood up before the 10 count.
Suddenly, Big Show appeared and brutally chokeslammed Cena into an entrance spotlight!
The attack was so brutal that it cost Cena both the match and the World title.
After the match, the EMT removed all the broken pieces of glass from the arena floor and removed Cena on a stretcher.
Backlash seemed to be a pretty good pay-per-view with the crowning of three New World champions.
The upcoming weeks will tell us what will be the new story lines of Raw, Smackdown, and ECW...
