The win over Dolph Ziggler was just the beginning of his push as a top babyface for WWE, but it's coming to light that his debut may not have gone exactly as planned and WWE officials will need to book him better in the future. Mahal almost three years after he was released from the company before returning last summer, is living proof. RAW is a great show, but for me SmackDown Live has better opportunities.
Owens claiming that the Falls Count Anywhere stipulation is what cost him the title would be the next natural step toward a 2-out-of-3 Falls match.

The match itself was fairly good considering the storyline heading into it was weak, and it was interesting to see Natalya be the one to pick up the victory, forcing Lynch to tap out to the Sharpshooter.
There wasn't much else to say about the rest of Backlash 2017.
Breezeango further established themselves as a comedy act as Tyler Breeze wrestled dressed as a janitor - even getting the crowd to chant "Mop" - and then as a grandmother with a dress, glasses and a wig. Corbin looked good in the match, dominating large portions, but Sami was able to catch him with a Helluva kick at the end for the pin.
Read that sentence, read it again, and picture what would happen if you could go back in time two months and tell yourself that. Hot off of his World Championship win at Wrestlemania Chris Benoit was placed in a triple threat match in front of his hometown of Edmonton, Alberta Canada. The match itself with Randy Orton was a lot better than most had anticipated, it was very aggressive and hard-hitting, including Orton destroying the Singh Brothers including an extremely painful-looking table spot.
