Also, the first ever Smackdown Women’s Champion will also be crowned as well.
Powell’s POV: Smackdown is listed as a three-hour event on WWE Network and will probably run close to the usual live special length given that it is available for purchase on pay-per-view via some cable outlets.
So what is going to happen on Sunday night?
The Citizen will have live coverage of WWE Backlash beginning at 7 p.m. Look for live analysis and match-by-match results throughout the show. Eva Marie’s 30-day suspension still isn’t over, so she shouldn’t be involved in any sort of interference.
-Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt.
Tag team match: The Usos vs. Hype Bros.
The Miz will look to continue his newly found momentum with the Intercontinental Championship by defending it against perennial go-to-guy Dolph Ziggler, a unusual opponent for what seems to resemble a courageous new era for the classic strap.
Slater is still wrestling for a SmackDown contract, which he’ll receive if he wins the tag tournament with Rhyno. Styles is 0-for-2 in PPV title matches so far in WWE, but it might be time for him to finally go over.
