The fallout from WWE’s biggest event of the year, Wrestlemania 34, starts to boil over on May 6th at Backlash. The WWE returns to North America at the Bell Centre in Montreal after a major event in the form of The Greatest Royal Rumble in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The Greatest Royal Rumble was a huge undertaking but it was more of a one-off, Backlash is where we are going to truly see some things settled, and somethings just begin.
We have familiar foes facing off against each other for Championship glory. Seth Rollins honors The Miz’s rematch clause and the A-Lister hopes to regain the title he helped bring back to prominence. Nia Jax goes one on one with ex-best friend Alexa Bliss, only this time The Irresistible Force walks in as the Champion as little Miss Bliss has to overcome major odds to try and regain her title. Our final rematch comes in the form of AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura. The Phenomenal One looks to retain his WWE Championship for a third straight time against the man who seems to love nothing more than punch him in the family jewels…
We also have some new competitors going face to face. Charlotte Flair looks to regain her championship after Carmella successfully cashed in the first ever Women’s Money in the Bank briefcase. Carmella hasn’t had a ton of solo experience and she goes up against arguably the best Woman in the business on May 6th, but she’s athletic and she’s a hard worker so it could be epic. Big Cass faces off against The Yes Man himself Daniel Bryan. Cass has made it clear he doesn’t like the attention that Bryan has been receiving and looks to put an end to Bryan’s momentum.
Samoa Joe also finally gets to get in the ring again with Roman Reigns. Joe has been putting out stellar promos at the expense of The Big Dog, taking shots at his inability to defeat Brock Lensar. It’s likely that this is a one-off match since both men will be returning to opposite brands afterward, so look for them both to put everything into this one. For all the hate he gets from fans, Reigns puts on great matches and Samoa Joe is always solid.
