With WrestleMania over with, on Sunday, WWE presents WrestleMania Backlash. With several titles on the line including the SmackDown and RAW Women’s Championship and the WWE and Univeral Championship, who will come out on top at the end of the night?
Damian Priest vs. The Miz Lumberjack Match
At WrestleMania, Damian Priest and Bad Bunny defeated The Miz and John Morrison. With Bad Bunny focusing on music, Damian Priest has been taking on The Miz and John Morrison solo since WrestleMania. After defeating John Morrison on Monday Night RAW, Priest decided to make the match with Miz at WrestleMania Backlash a Lumberjack Match. Even though The Miz is a former WWE Champion, WWE has high hopes for Priest so it’s hard to think he would lose his first singles Pay Per View Match
Prediction: Damian Priest
The Dirty Dawgs (Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode) (c) vs. Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio For The WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship
Since debuting in the WWE in 2020, Dominik Mysterio has impressed everyone with his ability in the ring and his father Rey Mysterio has been right by his side since day 1. After months on the roster, Dominik Mysterio gets a chance at the SmackDown Tag Team Titles with his father as his partner. Even though having them win the titles would be a heartwarming moment, WWE needs to build on this storyline, and Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode winning this match is the best way to build sympathy for the Mysterio Family coming close but not getting the job done.
Prediction: Dirty Dawgs
Bianca Belair (c) vs. Bayley For The WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship
At WrestleMania, Bianca Belair became SmackDown Women’s Champion defeating Sasha Banks to win the title. With Belair as champion, WWE has a star in the making and the company needs to capitalize on her momentum against Bayley at WrestleMania Backlash. Even though Bayley is a fantastic wrestler and this match has the chance to be one of the best matches of the show, Belair just won the title so WWE won’t have her drop the title this quickly especially with all the momentum she has.
Prediction: Bianca Belair
Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Asuka vs. Charlotte Flair For The WWE Raw Women’s Championship
Just like Bianca Belair, Rhea Ripley also became a champion at WrestleMania defeating Asuka to capture the RAW Women’s Championship. With Ripley as champion, she has a target on her back and her first title defense is not easy against two former RAW Women’s Champions in Charlotte Flair and Asuka. Despite Ripley not having the experience like Flair and Asuka, she makes up for it with her ability in the ring. Even though Flair and Asuka are tough challengers, Ripley just won the title so having her drop the title right now would be crazy.
Prediction: Rhea Ripley
Bobby Lashley (c) (with MVP) vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Braun Strowman for the WWE Championship
Ever since winning the WWE Championship from The Miz during an episode of Monday Night RAW, Bobby Lashley has been destroying everyone in his path including Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania to retain the Championship. At WrestleMania Backlash, Lashley will face McIntyre and Braun Strowman in a match full of powerhouses. With how impressive Lashley has been since becoming WWE Champion, he will have no problem with McIntyre and Strowman at the same time.
Prediction: Bobby Lashley
Roman Reigns (c) (with Paul Heyman) vs. Cesaro for the WWE Universal Championship
Since winning the WWE Univeral Championship last year, Roman Reigns has been an unstoppable force on SmackDown Live defeating everyone in his path from Daniel Bryan, Kevin Owens, Edge Braun Strowman, and Bray Wyatt. Reigns will have a tough task in Ceasaro who has been picking up a lot of momentum over the past few months picking up wins over Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins, and being involved in the Elimination Chamber. Even though Cesaro is over with the crowd, it will not be enough for him against Roman Reigns who has been on another level over the past few months.
Prediction: Roman Reigns
