Despite Backlash being an underwhelming show, there were some matches and moments that make it a show worth watching (or at least skipping through).
Bayley takes on Ruby Riott without the assistance of Sasha Banks in a good kickoff for this year’s Backlash.
While the Greatest Royal Rumble was very long and ultimately didn’t mean much, there were some fun moments and good matches on the show.
This was another long WrestleMania with a mostly entertaining mixture of memorable moments, good matches, underwhelming matches, and strange decisions.
Two fun battle royals and a great Cruiserweight Title match make this a nice warm-up for Wrestlemania 34!
This year’s Survivor Series might not have been completely unpredictable, but it was mostly enjoyable to watch.
This was a long Kickoff and wasn’t necessary for watching Survivor Series, but it did have three decent matches which is nice.
This year’s TLC had a couple of huge last minute changes that led to some interesting matchups, but overall the show was hit or miss. There were some great matches and moments, but there were just as many less than stellar matches and moments as well.
Sasha Banks takes on Alicia Fox in a rematch from RAW on a Kickoff show that has some big announcements for TLC!
The first ever Great Balls of Fire, despite its silly name, was a very good show with some great matches and memorable moments.
Akira Tozawa challenges Neville for the Cruiserweight Title in a surprisingly good kickoff show.
A good main event couldn’t help this year’s Extreme Rules from being only an average show. Some of the matches were not good at all and some were forgettable, but at least the show ended on a good note.
Kalisto faces Apollo Crews in a decent Kickoff for this year’s Extreme Rules.
Payback 2017 had a number of good matches, and one match that will go down in history as unwatchable (in my opinion).
Enzo & Cass face Gallows & Anderson, and The Miz welcomes Finn Balor to Miz TV in a pretty average, but fine, warmup to the Payback PPV.
This is a very long show, and with any show of this length, there are good and not so good parts. Overall, this is probably a middle-of-the-road Wrestlemania, but there is definitely some fun to be had here. Watching it all in one sitting might leave you a bit exhausted though.
With a lot of talking and three matches of varying quality, this was a pretty average kickoff show. Though the good parts were quite entertaining, there weren’t a ton of them considering the two-hour running time of the show.
