John Cena's 50 greatest matches

#40 John Cena vs. Triple H vs. Edge: Backlash 2006 (April 30, 2006)

John Cena met two of his great rivals in the ring at once when both Edge and Triple H challenged the Cenation leader for the WWE Title at Backlash 2006. Coming off his career defining submission victory over The King of Kings at WrestleMania 22, Cena was confident going into this Triple Threat Match, but so were his opponents. The Rated-R Superstar was mad with ego after brutalizing Mick Foley on the Grandest Stage of Them All. Triple H never lacked for confidence.

Trading victories in the weeks leading up to Backlash, the three Superstars seemed to be evenly matched, but it was the WWE Champion who would thrive at the event. As shaky alliances shifted throughout the bout Cena stayed focused on putting his opponents away and finally looked to do so when he hoisted Edge up for an Attitude Adjustment. The Game nearly gained the advantage when he nailed Cena with a  low blow, but the West Newbury brawler managed to reverse a Pedigree into a pinning combination to emerge as the victor. (WATCH)
