WWE Mocks CM Punk UFC Loss in Backlash Match, The Usos / Backlash Stat, More
You might recall the match opened with Ziggler ducking a wild punch from Miz and then Ziggler took Miz down and hit some ground-and-pound fists. Miz, however, was able to escape the beatdown and make it to the ropes for a break.
- During his recent appearance on the Talk Is Jericho podcast with Chris Jericho, WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens shared a funny story about how Finn Balor’s trademark body paint appears in his Titantron video.
Owens said he was ready to make the video in new gear, but a last minute talk with Enzo Amore made him rethink it, and he would stick with the t-shirt and shorts look he’d been recognized with. Owens says he turned his Guns N’ Roses shirt inside-out due to not being allowed to wear that, and wrote ‘FIGHT’ on the shirt using Finn Balor’s body paint.
- According to wrestling statistician Darren Bongiovanni, The Usos and Rikishi are just the second father / son combination to compete at WWE’s Backlash pay-per-view; the first father / son combo to achieve this was Vince and Shane McMahon.
Additionally, Jimmy Uso and Naomi are the first husband and wife to compete on the same WWE Backlash PPV event.
