On the night of May 8-9, 2022, WWE travels to Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island for Wrestlemania Backlash. This is the Stamford company’s first Pay Per View after Wrestlemania. On the program only one title defended that of Charlotte Flair against Ronda Rousey in an “I Quit match”.
Watching at 2 a.m. on the WWE Network, Wrestlemania Backlash doesn’t have a dream card with a single title defense. For the first time since the Survivor Series 2021 the men’s major titles will not be defended. The two-time champion Roman Reigns is present on the map but will keep its titles whatever happens. The head of the table will be in the main event of the evening alongside his cousins, the champions by team, the Usos. They will face Raw Tag Team Champions Randy Orton and Riddle, accompanied by Drew McIntyre. The Scotsman has finally ended his rivalry with Happy Corbin and could be heading for the Table Head universal title. The match was supposed to be a tag team title unification, but two weeks ago on Smackdown, Roman Reigns himself changed the plans. The world champion tore up the contract and asked Adam Pearce to turn the match into 3v3.
The card of revenge
The map of se Wrestlemania Backlash is a revenge card. Seth Rollins will have his revenge against the revenant Cody Rhodes. After his defeat at Wrestlemania the architect knows his opponent now. Omos also has his revenge against Bobby Lashley. The former two-time WWE champion saw his MVP manager betray him to join the Nigerian giant. Aj Styles also has the opportunity to redeem himself after his Wrestlemania loss to Edge. The Phenomenal One will face the Rated R Superstar alone tonight. Edge’s ally Damian Priest will be banned from ringside. The rematches aren’t over as Ronda Rousey will also have a rematch against Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women’s Title. The Baddest Woman on the Planet got the right to an “I Quit match”. To win the title Ronda Rousey must make her opponent say “I Quit”.
The only new rivalry on the card is Madcap Moss going up against his former best friend Happy Corbin. The latter complains that Moss cost him his Wrestlemania match against Drew McIntyre. Madcap Moss has the opportunity to take a step forward and launch his solo career with WWE. A rivalry around joke that leaves the WWE universe completely speechless.
