WWE Backlash 2016 Results
So apparently everybody here in the Philippines is on equal footing with Fox not picking up WWE Backlash 2016 for cable subscribers. So here we are at thefanboyseo.com giving out results for the winners and losers of this pay-per-view event.
This is the first PPV since the brand split and this is entirely SmackDown Live. So no Kevin Owens or Seth Rollins here. Also since SmackDown Live is still expanding its roster, expect a number of “palabok” moments here and there.
Women’s Championship Match: Becky Lynch (w) v Natalya v Naomi v Alexa Bliss v Carmella v Nikki Bella
The match is fast and furious as these ladies all definitely want to go home with the gold. In the end though, it was a fight between Bae-cky Lynch and Carmella. Many actually though it would be a Natalya-Becky match but we stand corrected. Becky locks in the “DisArmHer” and gets Carmella to tap out.
The Usos (w) v The Hype Bros
The Usos have turned heel, ditched the facepaint and have gone black as they face the team of Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley for the semis of the SmackDown Live Tag Team Championship. The winners face Rhyno and Heath Slater at the other end of the PPV. This new Usos are aggressive and with one leg crab submission, they end the match.
Intercontinental Championship Match: The Miz (w) v Dolph Ziggler
The Miz retains the title after a solid match with Ziggler. We were rooting for Ziggler here but it seems management liked what Miz has done recently with his promo together with SD Live’s commissioner, Daniel Bryan. Also they cheated. Whatever the hell did Maryse spray on Ziggler sure worked wonders.
Also, we need to double take on Maryse because damn.
Randy Orton v Bray Wyatt (w)
Bray Wyatt attacked Randy Orton at an earlier point of the PPV leaving the Viper pretty much knocked out and unable to fight. The match is forfeit but before Wyatt can celebrate, announcer announces a new match – Bray Wyatt v Kane.
Bray Wyatt v Kane (w)
Its an ugly fight but when the time was right, RKO OUTTA NOWHERE resulting in a whin for Kane.

Tag Team Championship Match: Heath Slater and Rhyno (w) v The Usos
These two actually managed to do a good match with the Usos. There’s a lot of turnovers of momentum all throughout but the entertainment value is high. That ending for the match also made the win so, so sweet.
WWE World Championship Match: AJ Styles (w) vs Dean Ambrose
It was technical as could be with a lot of flashy moments but in the end, a knocked out referree, a low blow and the infamous Styles Clash turns Styles into the new WWE World Championship.
For its very first PPV, we don’t think Backlash 2016 is such a bad production. It’s a positive note and we wish WWE would sing more of this tune going down the road.
