I have to go with a Corbin victory on this one.
Dasha Fuentes is backstage with Sami Zayn, who has an announcement. Will Owens interfere and results in Styles losing the match?
Dolph Ziggler cut a promo on Shinsuke Nakamura before facing him at Backlash.
Below are WWE Backlash predictions for every match on the card. It was a solid affair to open the show, and Nakamura, who won by the way, got a great reaction. "That's even more disrespectful than turning me down".
Post-match, The Usos walked out and cut a promo about how they wrestle for the Tag Team Titles. He wants to know why Renee thought that his win in the match was a "shock", and lets her know that he is the crown jewel of SmackDown.
A brawl broke out between them and Charlotte, Becky on the ramp. Naomi goes up top, but thinks better of it when Tamina and Natalya try to get involved. Flair got the microphone and said that that they need to bring everything that they have and that she would be coming after the SmackDown Women's Title after Backlash.
NBCUniversal has been testing the technology on the weekly wrestling show since it went live last summer (having previously been a pre-recorded show), but it is now set to be a permanent fixture, according to a report in Broadcast & Cable.
The show had two major matches announced including AJ Styles vs. Jinder Mahal and Baron Corbin vs. Following the show, Busted Open Radio released an interview with Lana that provided an update of how long the two-time United States Champion will be out of action. Styles vowed to beat Owens at Backlash and take the US Title. Chris Jericho's "talk show" was the Highlight Reel, but Owens injured him a couple weeks ago. Renee wishes him the best of luck and he says next week he'll be here as WWE Champion. They give a huge congratulations to Brie and Daniel Bryan on the birth of their daughter Birdie as we see pictures of the new baby on Instagram. Mahal flattens Styles with the Full Nelson Slam and picks up perhaps his most shocking win this month.
Jinder has since aligned himself with The Singh Brothers, Gurv and Harv Sihra (formerly known as The Bollywood Boyz on NXT) to help establish himself as a thorn in Orton's side and add credibility to a match that quite literally came outta nowhere.
