WWE will continue the build-up to the WrestleMania Backlash premium live event on this week’s episode of SmackDown. The first live show back after WWE’s European tour will feature a tables match between The New Day and Sheamus and Ridge Holland as well as Sasha Banks taking on Shayna Baszler. Fans could also get some interesting surprises.
There has been a lot of crossover between Raw and SmackDown recently. Roman Reigns ordered The Usos to bring him RK-Bro’s WWE Raw Tag Team Championships. That feud will headline Backlash, as a huge six-man tag match is set with Drew McIntyre joining RK-Bro against The Bloodline.
There are a few Raw stars scheduled for this week’s episode of SmackDown, as well. According to Mike Johnson of PW Insider, Randy Orton and Matt Riddle will be in the house. There is also a locally-advertised dark match between Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins on the card.
“Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins are being locally advertised for a dark match for tomorrow’s WWE Nassau Coliseum Smackdown taping, but they may not be the only Raw stars working the taping.
The current plan is to have WWE Raw Tag Team Champions RK-Bro at the taping as well.”
RK-Bro will likely confront The Bloodline if they do appear on the show. Cody and Seth are not expected to appear on TV, but anything could happen. If you’re unable to watch this week’s SmackDown, you can follow Ringside News for live results and updates.
