What to watch for during Wrestlemania Backlash
As usual, Backlash will be comprised of mostly rematches from Wrestlemania last month as we’ll get the official blowoff to many of these feuds.
Smackdown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair will once again defend her title against Ronda Rousey in the main event, this time in an I Quit match. The “Queen” had to cheat to retain against Rousey at Wrestlemania, thus setting up this match where there will be an undisputed winner. We’ll also get a rematch of the epic Wrestlemania clash from last month between Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins. Rhodes has stated that his goal in this new run with the WWE is to capture the WWE Championship and will have to once again go through Rollins on his ascent up the ladder.
The other marquee match of the show will be a six-man tag team match as The Bloodline will battle the team of RK-Bro and Drew McIntyre. This was originally supposed to be a tag team title unification match between Smackdown Tag Team Champions The Usos and Raw Tag Team Champions RK-Bro. Those plans changed during last week’s contract signing on Smackdown as WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns helped his cousins ambush the Raw champs, bringing out McIntyre to even the odds. This match was made official shortly afterwards.
