wwe-backlash-2016-poster-2

The 12th edition of WWE Backlash will be a SmackDown Live exclusive pay-per-view and it will come to you, live exclusively on the WWE Network, this Sunday night, September 11, from the Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, VA. At the SmackDown Live pay-per-view, four championships will be on the line as the WWE World Championship and Intercontinental Championship will be defended in addition to the crowning of the first ever SmackDown Women’s Champion and the first ever SmackDown Tag Team Champions. Plus, Randy Orton will go one-on-one with Bray Wyatt at the event. Here is the final card for Backlash:

  • WWE World Championship: Dean Ambrose (c) vs. AJ Styles
  • Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt
  • SmackDown Tag Team Championship Tournament: Finals: The Usos/The Hype Bros vs. Heath Slater & Rhyno
  • Intercontinental Championship: The Miz (c) (with Maryse) vs. Dolph Ziggler
  • SmackDown Women’s Championship: Women’s Six Pack Elimination Challenge: Becky Lynch vs. Natalya vs. Carmella vs. Naomi vs. Alexa Bliss vs. Nikki Bella
  • SmackDown Tag Team Championship Tournament: Semi-Finals: The Usos vs. The Hype Bros

The Backlash Kickoff will air exclusively on the WWE Network an hour before the pay-per-view at 7/6c. The Kickoff will feature analysis from the Kickoff Panel.

American Alpha were originally slated to face Heath Slater & Rhyno in the Finals of the SmackDown Tag Team Championship Tournament but, following their victory over The Usos on SmackDown Live this past Tuesday, The Usos attacked Chad Gable, putting Gable out of action for 2-3 weeks. As a result, SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon announced that The Usos will face The Hype Bros at Backlash with the winning team taking American Alpha’s place in the Finals, which will take place later that same night.

In the Women’s Six Pack Elimination Challenge, all six Superstars will be legal in the ring at the same time. Elimination occurs by either pinfall or submission and this trend will continue until there is only one woman left in the match and that competitor will be declared the winner and will be crowned the first ever SmackDown Women’s Champion.
