WWE BACKLASH MATCH CARD
Matt Riddle, Kevin Owens, and Sami Zayn vs. The Bloodline (Solo Sikoa, Jey Uso, and Jimmy Uso) (with Paul Heyman). Six-man tag team match
Sadly, the storyline building up to this match has slowed down, especially after the addition of Matt Riddle. But it doesn’t mean that the match itself won’t be good. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn were drafted to RAW while The Usos were drafted to SmackDown so the storyline will end after this match. The trio of Matt Riddle, Kevin Owens, and Sami Zayn are going to get the win as The Usos and Solo Sikoa need to get on Roman Reign’s bad side to continue the storyline on SmackDown.
OUR PREDICTION: MATT RIDDLE, KEVIN OWENS AND SAMI ZAYN
Cody Rhodes vs. Brock Lesnar. Singles match
With the storyline that the WWE is trying to tell, it seems that Cody Rhodes will also lose this match. His downfall will continue to spiral out of control before he builds himself back up and defeats Brock Lesnar in a rematch at SummerSlam. But for now, Brock Lesnar is going to walk out on top with the win at Backlash.
OUR PREDICTION: BROCK LESNAR
Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Zelina Vega. Singles match for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship
In the most predictable match of the night, Rhea Ripley is going to destroy Zelina Vega, obviously the match will be good but there is no chance that Zelina wins. The Latino World Order should start picking up some wins but sadly that isn’t going to start happening here. Rhea Ripley should hold onto her title for a long time.
OUR PREDICTION: RHEA RIPLEY
Seth “Freakin” Rollins vs. Omos (with MVP). Singles match
This seems like something that Vince McMahon would book for fun, and either man could win here. Omos is coming off a huge loss to Brock Lesnar which means he could use a win, but Seth Rollins could also use a win since he is the favourite to win the new WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Seth Rollins should win here, and he most likely will.
OUR PREDICTION: SETH ROLLINS
Austin Theory (c) vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Bronson Reed. Triple threat match for the WWE United States Championship
After the draft it seems pretty obvious that Austin Theory is going to retain the title. Theory was drafted to SmackDown alongside Bobby Lashley who we know isn’t going to win, and Bronson Reed got drafted to Raw meaning it’s impossible for him to win. Austin Theory has had an amazing title reign so far, so it’s important that he keeps that going for a while longer. It should be an awesome match though.
OUR PREDICTION: AUSTIN THEORY
Bianca Belair (c) vs. Iyo Sky (with Bayley and Dakota Kai). Singles match for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship
This match very well could be the match of the night. These are the two best women’s wrestlers on the roster based on an in-ring standpoint and this could be amazing. Iyo Sky should win, but due to the confusing circumstances of the draft it is most likely that Bianca Belair will remain the WWE RAW Women’s Champion. On Monday, it is most likely that Rhea Ripley and Bianca Belair will trade titles.
OUR PREDICTION: BIANCA BELAIR
Bad Bunny vs. Damian Priest. San Juan Street Fight
Most likely, this will be the main event. It’s really awesome that Damian Priest is getting a huge spot in a celebrity match after seeming like the forgotten member of The Judgment Day. Since we’re in Puerto Rico though, the chances of Damian Priest losing are low as Bad Bunny losing wouldn’t go over too well with the audience. This match should be awesome.
OUR PREDICTION: BAD BUNNY
