2 WWE Superstars who flopped and 3 who impressed

2 WWE Superstars who flopped and 3 who impressed
WrestleMania Backlash was an excellent pay-per-view from WWE. Just one title changed hands when Rey Mysterio and Dominik won the SmackDown Tag Team Championships over The Dirty Dawgs. The Mysterio's made history as the first father-son duo to win WWE tag team titles in the process.

At WrestleMania Backlash, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley successfully defended their respective Women's Championships. They did a good job of bolstering the arguments that they were the women's division's future. With the exception of a handful of ludicrous segments, the show was virtually flawless. Although there were no poor matches per se, the creative team made a risky decision halfway through the show and dropped the ball.

We'll look at the WWE Superstars who flopped and those who didn't at WrestleMania Backlash in this post.

Roman Reigns Impressed at WrestleMania Backlash

Roman Reigns successfully defended his Universal Championship against Cesaro in the main event of WrestleMania Backlash. With the promotion's most coveted reward on the line, it was an action-packed match. Reigns, unlike his normal procedure, declined to enlist the support of others to defend his title this time. After a commanding performance that demonstrated why he is hailed as the company's face, he finally won the match on his own.

Throughout the match, both superstars did an excellent job of carrying the narrative. Reigns seemed overconfident at first, but his demeanor shifted as the title match at WrestleMania Backlash progressed. He also took a lot of punishment during the match, which added to his championship defense's reputation.

During the Universal Championship match at WrestleMania Backlash, a few moments stood out. Cesaro was knocked out for a while by his Superman Punch on the bar. It also made the move seem much more lethal than it normally does. The most impressive aspect of Reigns' triumph is that he did it all by himself.

Roman Reigns' refusal to let Jey Uso accompany him to the ringside was unexpected. The Tribal Chief was optimistic after his clean victory over Daniel Bryan on SmackDown that he could easily handle his next opponent. Reigns' strong title defense added a lot to his reputation as a dominant Universal Champion, even if it wasn't easy.

The Miz Flopped at WrestleMania Backlash

The Miz Flopped at WrestleMania Backlash
The Miz faced Damian Priest in a singles match at WrestleMania Backlash. In the weeks leading up to the pay-per-view, the two superstars had a lengthy feud on WWE RAW. After Priest defeated The Miz in the Lumberjack match, the plot seemed to be put to rest. Most notably, this match included zombies, which we will cover at the conclusion of this post.

For the time being, let's concentrate on The Miz and Priest. We've seen them fight on RAW many times, and their in-ring confrontation at WrestleMania Backlash was no exception. The A-Lister became greedy, as has always been the case in this storyline, and was then beaten by Priest. It was the night's weakest match, with an underwhelming performance.

The Miz is a charismatic celebrity who makes the most of any opportunities he is given. The imaginative is to blame, as they often undercut his strengths with exaggerated angles. Hopefully, after WrestleMania Backlash, this will change. The only good outcome of this match is that it will have an effect on Priest's drive on WWE RAW, and hopefully, he will be involved in interesting storylines in the future.

Cesaro Impressed at WrestleMania Backlash

Cesaro, a WWE Superstar, got his first opportunity to challenge for the world title at WrestleMania Backlash. Fans have always backed him up and wished for the creative team to invest in his success as he prepares for his title match against Roman Reigns. When the chance presented itself at the recently concluded pay-per-view, he delivered above and beyond expectations.

For the majority of the feud, Roman Reigns declined to see Cesaro as a "deserving" contender. The Swiss Cyborg is to be commended for retaliating with a memorable performance that forced the Universal Champion to reconsider his role. Cesaro was adamant about not giving up and fought valiantly in his WrestleMania Backlash title match.

He also took a lot of chances inside the squared circle, which helped him win the upper hand. Cesaro came close to defeating Reigns several times, but the champion fought back each time. Unfortunately, at WrestleMania Backlash, he was defeated by Reigns' vicious submission move and passed out. Following the match, both Seth Rollins and Jey Uso assaulted Cesaro and beat him up mercilessly.

Cesaro was clearly established as a major threat in the world title picture after this match. WWE could not relegate him to the mid-card once more. He's done well as a babyface recently, proving that he can deliver commendable feuds with some of SmackDown's biggest heels after WrestleMania Backlash.

John Morrison Flopped at WrestleMania Backlash

Zombies were used in WrestleMania Backlash, and it was the single worst thing that has happened to them since they became a popular topic in culture. They were first found in the locker room by John Morrison. During the Lumberjack match, they took the place of the WWE Superstars and walked around the smoke-filled ringside dressed as White Walkers, but in WWE Shop clothing.

To put things in perspective, these zombies were sent by Batista to promote his film "Army of the Dead." They would end up being a part of the match at WrestleMania Backlash, which he had no idea about. Morrison's efforts to fend off the zombies were both funny and heartbreaking. It would be an understatement to say that he needs to be booked in better segments.

The most entertaining aspect was watching the reasonable zombies patiently wait for the superstars to leave the ring before attacking them. During WrestleMania Backlash, the match was between The Miz and Priest, but the makers of the wildly popular series 'The Walking Dead' must have been the ones who felt the most pain. In this match, Morison should have done so much more to assist The Miz. Instead, he was busy looking like the first man in horror movies who dies.

The zombies joined the ring after the match and ‘devoured' The Miz and Morrison. The segment was strange, and it left viewers with a lot of questions.

Is this a plan to hold them off the air after WrestleMania Backlash? Can they move on to better storylines after the pay-per-view on WWE RAW? And, most significantly, can The Miz and John Morrison make a zombie diss track as well?

Drew McIntyre Impressed at WrestleMania Backlash

Three talented RAW superstars fought for the WWE Championship in one of the best matches at WrestleMania Backlash. In the end, Bobby Lashley successfully defended his title in a triple-threat match against Braun Strowman and Drew McIntyre. McIntyre, on the other hand, stood out as the best performer in the title battle.

From delivering brutal blows to making subtle changes to the match, he was brilliant with his story-telling inside the ring. He avoided making the same mistakes that had previously allowed Strowman and Lashley to dominate him. McIntyre drove Lashley through the LED screens near the entrance during this WrestleMania Backlash match.

He then turned his attention to Strowman, and the two superstars went at it for the throats of each other. McIntyre then delivered a flawless Claymore, causing The Monster Amon Men to crash to the mat with a ring-shattering thud. Unfortunately, he was unable to capitalize on the opportunity, as Lashley stormed into the ring from behind and tossed McIntyre to the ringside. At WrestleMania Backlash, he pinned Strowman for the victory.

Strowman and McIntyre had fantastic chemistry, and their rivalry on WWE RAW would definitely be entertaining. Despite their losses at WrestleMania Backlash, both of these superstars demonstrated that they would continue to be a major threat to Lashley's reign. More importantly, it demonstrated that McIntyre is underappreciated for the amount of effort he puts in to make WWE RAW title feuds fun.
