All eyes will be on SmackDown Live this weekend as they host their first pay-per-view following the official WWE brand split, and it will be Dean Ambrose facing off against AJ Styles in the main event for the WWE Championship.

However, it's not just the WWE Universe that are talking about the upcoming PPV, nor is it just the blue side of WWE, as Monday Night Raw's Universal Champion has also been talking about the main event for Backlash.

Kevin Owens was recently speaking with Ryan Rider of Main Event Radio, and he was asked about the Backlash main event and who he's backing to win.

Owens, who will defend his own title two weeks later at Clash of Champions against Seth Rollins, believes the title won't be changing hands at Backlash as Ambrose has enough to retain his title.

Ambrose recently saw off Dolph Ziggler for the title, whilst AJ Styles is on the back of a big win against John Cena at WWE SummerSlam, which has now seen him call himself the new face that runs the place.

However, Owens believes the WWE Championship will be going home with Ambrose, stating there is something about him that will be enough.

Owens said: “I’ve been in the ring with both. I think Dean Ambrose has got this one.

"AJ Styles is an incredible performer; very spectacular. There’s something about Dean Ambrose that you can’t really put your finger on it as to why he is so successful but it’s always the same kind of appeal as I have.

"He’s very determined, very passionate, and I think he will fight very hard to keep his title and will.”

Ambrose has been the WWE Champion ever since cashing in against Seth Rollins at the Money in the Bank PPV, and he's since successfully retained his title against Rollins, Roman Reigns, and Ziggler.
