WWE’s next pay-per-view offering is Backlash on June 14th, but they only have four official matches so far. The company needs to book more contests quickly, but they have some lined up already.

A few matches are already lined up for Backlash, but they haven’t been officially booked. The Street Profits and Viking Raiders seem destined for a match, but they have occupied their time engaging in other competitions like bowling, ax throwing, and basketball.

Drew McIntyre vs Bobby Lashley for the WWE Title is confirmed for the show. Braun Strowman will defend the blue brand’s top title against The Miz and John Morrison in a handicap match. Asuka vs Nia Jax is also confirmed for the RAW Women’s Title while Edge vs Randy Orton is being promoted as the greatest wrestling match ever.

It is unclear what WWE is going to do with Seth Rollins’ current feud with Rey Mysterio. They could book a match at Backlash, but Mysterio gave the impression that he might be out for longer. The angle could also use more of a build considering the attention they are getting in Mexico.


We’ll have to see what matches WWE adds to the card. They are filming more television next week so they will have one more taping opportunity to fill out the Backlash event.
