| WWE Backlash 2005
A solid PPV. To be fair ALL of WWE's PPV's throughout 2005 have been solid.

Match 1 saw the greatest pure athlete in my opinion, Shelton Benjamin put his Intercontinental Championship on the line against Chris Jericho. This was a fantastic battle, which saw Benjamin winning the contest.

Next up William Regal and Tajiri put their Tag titles on the line as they challenged the Raw tag teams. They won The Heart Throbs, Romeo and Antonio in a 3 minute bore, then won Simon Dean and Maven, but lost to La Resistance. Finally The Hurricane and Rosey pinned Rob Conway to capture their first Tag Team titles.

Next up Kane took on Viscera. Oh yes, this was complete with One Man Gang style elbow drops and King Kong Bundy style splashes, but after 6 minutes of slow action, Kane chokeslammed Big Vis for the win. Afterwards Vis splashed Trish Stratus! Next up Hulk Hogan and Shawn Michaels took it to Muhammad Hassan and Daivari (hey did anyone else think that Hogan and HBK would lose?!.)These two men certainly made the ladder match at WM XXI memorable and they did just that in this match. Yes I'm talking about Edge and Chris Benoit in a brilliant last man standing match. Moments included Edge superplexing Benoit off the top rope onto a bin and Benoit doing to the diving head butt off the top of a ladder but missing. Edge won.

Then the main event, which consisted of World Heavyweight Champion, Batista and Triple H. Batty won, which made me realise how can Trips lose TWO times on the row to Batty?! Overall Grade A
