Five matches announced for WWE Backlash

Published 4 Comments

SmackDown Live are having their first SmackDown-only pay-per-view in years and a big chunk of the card has already been set.

One of Shane McMahon's first decrees as the commissioner of SmackDown was to announce that the blue brand would have their own PPV's, starting with Backlash.

Well, that takes place next weekend, on September 11, and the first few matches taking place have been announced.

Dean Ambrose has his first real challenger for the WWE Championship after beating Dolph Ziggler at SummerSlam. Fresh off his big win over John Cena, AJ Styles will now be taking on 'The Lunatic Fringe'.

That is sure to be a good feud and the two will put on an exciting match at Backlash, which is the least fans could wish for.

Hopefully, Ambrose vs Styles goes on for a few months rather than just fizzling out due to poor booking.

The latest match to be announced is for the Intercontinental Championship, which is currently held by The Miz - who went on a truly spectacular rant against Daniel Bryan last week that could start a big push.

Miz will be facing Dolph Ziggler, in a match that WWE fans have almost certainly seen at least 10 times over the past few years.

The other matches that have already been announced include the Six Pack Challenge to Crown the First SmackDown Women’s Champion. That will see Natalya vs. Alexa Bliss vs. Nikki Bella vs. Carmella vs. Naomi vs. Becky Lynch. Nikki Bella and Becky Lynch have to be the favourites heading into the event.

And then there is the final of the SmackDown Tag Team Tournament to crown the brand's first tag champs.

Finally, Randy Orton will be taking on a returning Bray Wyatt in what will almost certainly be the show stealer. Hopefully, Orton's forehead has suitably recovered from the beating by Brock Lesnar.
