The match had a decent length, it was technical and it was the 'work horse' match of the night. It actually felt like an IC title match and not a throw away filler in between two bigger matches.
The finish was something that's been done a million times, but that's the type of characters Miz & Maryse are portraying right now, and it worked. Both looked good and if the IC title continues to get this level of spotlight, it could be a very good thing.
It was certainly better than Styles and Ambrose. I think the winner messes with people's perspective on the match itself. Dean was fine as champion but AJ is just the tits right now. He's had a pretty epic run since his debut and I hope it continues.
I thought Backlash overall was pretty decent. Certainly a lot better than I was expecting. Not one for the Hall Of PPV Fame but not a bad event at all.
