A tag team match featuring stars from the Raw brand has been added to the Backlash card.
It was announced on Raw tonight that Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens would face the team of Bobby Lashley and Braun Strowman. They faced two weeks ago on Raw, where Strowman convincingly got the win for his team. In a match this week on Raw, Strowman, Lashey and Roman Reigns defeated Jinder Mahal, Owens and Zayn in a six man tag team match, with Strowman picking up the win again for his team, pinning Owens.
Other matches on the card include AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE title, Seth Rollins vs. The Miz for the Intercontinental title, Nia Jax vs. Alexa Bliss for the Raw women’s title, Carmella vs. Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown women’s title, Daniel Bryan vs. Big Cass and Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe.
Backlash will go down this Sunday at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. It will be the first co-branded show outside of the big four events since the 2016 brand split.
