The first brand-exclusive PPV post the WWE Draft is finally here with SmackDown Live’s Backlash event just a couple of days away. After a disappointing go-home show it’s now up to Backlash to deliver or the momentum of the New Era might stall. The PPV is headlined by AJ Styles challenging Dean Ambrose for his WWE Championship.
We’ll also get out first SmackDown Women’s Champion and our very first SmackDown Tag-Team Champions. There is also the showcase clash between the Eater of Worlds, Bray Wyatt, and Randy Orton. Backlash barely has any sort of undercard so far but all of the announced matches have stakes behind them which makes it an interesting change. Basically, on paper, this card has no filler matches.
Rumours have been flying around for the last few weeks and with Backlash around the corner, it’s time for a last minute rumour update.
