WWE Backlash 2018 Highlights: After weeks of taunting at the hands of Samoa Joe, Roman Reigns finally reigned supreme as he went down to beat Joe in the main event of pay-per-view Backlash. The Big Dog was earlier slumped in the match when Joe brutally assaulted him even before the bell rang. But the former WWE Champion showed his tenacity and his will to fight as he continued to battle through the pain and finally emerge victorious in the big match. Earlier, it was WWE Champion AJ Styles who retained his WWE Championship title after the No Disqualifications match against Shinsuke Nakamura ended in a double count-out. (Fight Card)
Being the first PPV after WrestleMania, WWE Backlash has always been known to settle rivalries that couldn’t be finished on the grandest stage of them all. Backlash 2018 comes to the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey for the first time and will be a co-branded event showcasing superstars from both Raw and Smackdown Live. This event will feature blockbuster matches including Roman Reigns Vs Samoa Joe, AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura in a rematch after their classic match at WrestleMania 34. Backlash will also feature Daniel Bryan vs. Big Cass. Last year’s WWE Backlash witnessed Jinder Mahal defeating Randy Orton to win his first WWE Championship while Shinsuke Nakamura made his in-ring debut on the main roster.
