While WrestleMania 37 wasn’t perfect, WWE clearly wanted to keep some of the goodwill rolling by adding that name to the title of its next pay-per-view, WrestleMania Backlash.
Despite featuring quite a few feuds that were rematches or thinly veiled repeats, the amount of talent scheduled to perform Sunday gave this show more than enough potential to be worth the watch.
Cesaro against Roman Reigns, the Triple Threat matches for the WWE and Raw Women’s Championships, and many other fights looked great on paper, but how good was their execution?
Were there more positives or negatives throughout the night? Was the event an overall success or a disappointment?
