SmackDown Women’s Title Match Set For Backlash, Updated Card



With the focus for the WWE this week primarily on this Friday’s Greatest Royal Rumble, we still have Backlash right around the corner on May 6th at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Today, WWE has announced that Charlotte Flair will be getting her rematch for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at the event with a contract signing to take place tonight on SmackDown Live. Below is the updated card for the event, which could change depending on the results of Greatest Royal Rumble:

Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe

WWE Intercontinental Championship
(C) Seth Rollins vs. The Miz

RAW Women’s Championship
(C) Nia Jax vs. Alexa Bliss

SmackDown Women’s Championship
(C) Carmella vs. Charlotte Flair

EA’s Take: I’m not anticipating any changes here, at least in terms of who the champions are. If we’re maintaining any semblance of brand integrity, both Hardy and Rollins will retain their titles at GRR. This would also lead me to believe that Rollins retains at Backlash as well, but with co-branded pay-per-views now, who’s to say WWE won’t do something out of the box.
