Dean Ambrose vs. AJ Styles, Bray Wyatt vs. Randy Orton and more


WWE Backlash 2016 PreviewFirst big show of the new era.

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.
