WWE Backlash brought an action-packed show for fans in San Juan, Puerto Rico on Saturday. The crowd was on fire all night, and there was plenty planned to entertain them. Triple H is WWE’s Chief Content Officer, and that title means he has to get very involved with the show, even picking the props that they use.

Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that WWE never planned a stretcher angle for Backlash. No ambulance spot was pencilled in, either. That is apparent, because they would have needed to get special clearances in Puerto Rico to use that vehicle, also, Triple H handpicks and approves all props.

There were also incorrect rumors that there was a stretcher job and ambulance spot planned. Fightful was able to get a look at the preparation plans for the weekend’s shows, and ambulances weren’t mentioned, and every prop had to be cleared by Triple H himself. Also, additional clearances would have been required there in Puerto Rico.


WWE received a tremendous response in Puerto Rico, but that doesn’t mean they will go right back. After all, the island’s tourism board funded that show with a seven-figure payday.

Backlash was full of memorable moments, and it might be regarded as one of the best events of the year, just because of the audience alone. That sold out show saw a lot go down, but an ambulance spot was never part of the plan. That being said, Triple H still made sure everyone got an incredible show.
