WWE Backlash 2023 Dave Meltzer’s Star Ratings

Hamish Woodward

WWE returned to Puerto Rico for the first time in over a decade, as the home of the critically-acclaimed Backlash pay-per-view.

Backlash 2023 was a great pay per view, which really paid tribute to the island that has been so starved of WWE wrestling over the years.

The crowd was as hyped as you’ve ever seen, which will surely translate into higher star ratings for Backlash’s matches.

The crowd erupted as Carlito returned to help save Bad Bunny from Judgement Day.

In this article, we’ll talk you through the WWE Backlash 2023 star ratings, looking at the various match ratings for all the bouts on the show.

We will look at Dave Meltzer’s (of the Wrestling Observer) star ratings, a famous (infamous?) metric that fans use to judge if a match is good or bad, as well as the user ratings from Cagematch.

Cagematch is a website which aggregates fans opinions on wrestling match. Fans can log on and rank the matches on a scale of zero to ten, which then calculates an average score for the matches.

Great matches can expect a 9+ rating while the worst matches may not even be worth giving a rating to at all.

Only matches over 5 minutes may be rated on the website. This means fantastic, yet shorter matches like KENTA vs Ricky Marvin will not be given a rating but that does not mean they are bad bouts.

Here are the star ratings for WWE Backlash 2023.
