There is a difference in what should happen and what could happen at Backlash this weekend. Leave it to WWE to make things a bit interesting heading into the final quarter of 2016.
For everything Smackdown Live is trying to become – stepping out of the shadow of its big brother, Monday Night Raw – there are still plenty of loose ends that have to be tied up for me to jump on the bandwagon and root for the new brand.
A few twists and turns on Sunday night could go a long way toward making that happen.
I see the McMahons working this to be a large production with hopefully a large return. That can only happen if there are a few surprises and a fan base that watch with approval, not the way they were left wondering as to what happened in the main event of SummerSlam.
There are six matches announced for the night – each with major implications as the company moves toward the holiday months and the end of the year. There is always a “bang” that leaves us wondering what just happened. Hopefully, that occurs here. Nonetheless, I am optimistic of Sunday night’s event, but I won’t be surprised if it is more of the status quo.
These five twists would certainly make things a bit more interesting.
