Speaking on his Kliq This podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash commented on the crowd at WWE Backlash. He recalled how he texted Triple H, or Paul Levesque, about how lively the fans were.

“My whole thing is, when you do determine that you’re gonna watch it, and you do watch it, when you watch it, you say to yourself, ‘Is it really that fucking loud? Or is it because I didn’t watch it live, and they superimposed this?’ Because it’s so unbelievably loud. So I text Paul [Levesque]. I said, ‘Wow, like fuck.’ I believe the statement I made to Paul was, ‘That crowd was so alive that it made a 64-year-old man want to take a bump.’ Paul responded to me [with], ‘We could not hear each other in Gorilla Position.’ So, okay, Backlash might not have been the most-bought pay-per-view, but anybody that watched it and saw the optics of how fucking live that show was, I mean….," Nash said.

Jeff Jarrett recently said that the star of the weekend of WWE Backlash was the fans. Check out his comments here.
