Is there a reason you decided to do Back to Basics? he's much more useful using multi maneuvers due to his pre-match card.

Well I've only been playing a short while and recently discovered Back to Basics. So I thought 8th Wonder would be good first try. There are probably better wrestlers to use.

Yeap. Great Khali and Ultimate Warrior is good with B2B. In fact, they are meant for B2B. Haha. And they have great supports with B2B.

Since you are packing Back to Basics, have you considered packing Old School Raw. The mid-match reversal

8th Wonder, despite losing Giant Eiffel Tower, is a pretty good B2B deck in theory since he can protect his hand more easily from hand nukes.

Some initial tips I can offer:

1) You NEED 3 x Manager Interferes.  Like, must have, no question.
2) You NEED at least 2 x Don't Try This At Home.  Again, no question, as there's too many ACE's that devastate you in the world to go without protection.
3) Have you considered the backstage card Legendary Defense?  As a legend, you get the ability to pack that, and it gives you back 6 spots to put other cards into the deck.
4) Your Backlash deck is short cards - in the Virtual era, the Backlash deck may contain 12 Pre-Match cards and 12 Mid-Match cards, and you may play 6 of each.  Your current outline only has 10 Pre Match and 10 Mid-Match.  My suggestions for you to look at with regards to the two extra cards:
 -Pre-Match: A Foundation of Old School Wrestling and Old School Beating #3
 -Mid-Match: Restricted Use In This Area and Old School Raw.
5) I would also seriously consider replacing Save Da Drama... for Turning Everything Upside Down or You're As Graceful As A Cow On Ice.  With the reversals you have access to in the deck, it'll be rare that you are hit with two high risks in the same turn (unless of course Eddie is involved).  However, either of the two cards mentioned not only stop the second High Risk but also can stop waves of actions.

Beyond that, it's a matter of practice and seeing what cards work in your local scene.  You may find Hold the Phone useful - maybe you need a Lift a Boot in case Shane O' Mac is running wild.  Maybe some B2B moves are better than others and you'd like to make space for other cards in your Arsenal.  That will come with more practice and playing games to see what you like better.

Thanks for the feedback. I will have to look into doing those changes. I did not realize the pre and mid match got bumped up. A friend of mine taught me with the 20 card backlash format.
