I will always have Smackdown over Raw and while I dread at the sight of The Singh Brothers costing Randy Orton his WWE Championship, I have high hopes for this event.
I guess Shinsuke Nakamura will notch his first WWE PPV win at the expense of Dolph Ziggler. I hate myself for thinking that this is a rehashed version of the victory Kenzo Suzuki got over Billy Gunn but hey, there is no way Nakamura would lose in this match. I also don’t think Kevin Owens would lose his belt against AJ Styles. With that said though, here’s to hoping WWE will have another body to work with Mahal and Orton.
Anyway, here is how I see WWE Backlash 2017.
|Pre-show||Tye Dillinger versus Aiden English||Dillinger||1/10|
|Singles||Shinsuke Nakamura versus Dolph Ziggler||Nakamura||6/10|
|Singles||Luke Harper versus Erick Rowan||Rowan||4/10|
|Tag Team Title||The Usos (c) versus The Fashion Police||Usos||7/10|
|Singles||Baron Corbin versus Sami Zayn||Corbin||5/10|
|US Title||Kevin Owens (c) versus AJ Styles||Owens||8/10|
|6-Woman||Naomi (c), Charlotte Flair, and Becky Lynch versus Natalya, Carmella, and Tamina||Naomi, Charlotte, and Lynch||3/10|
|WWE Title||Randy Orton (c) versus Jinder Mahal||Mahal by DQ||6/10|
I guess I can see Orton hitting Jinder with an equalizer to save himself from The Bollywood Boyz. I also need to see how the crowd would react with The Fashion Police because they might have good backstage segments… The Usos are earning their stripes onstage. Corbin needs a win so Zayn needs to lose again. They blew the pre-Wrestlemania momentum of Luke Harper when he became Orton’s ally so I have no interest in their match… like the reaction I have with the 6-woman bout.
