Backlash could be a way to reset the current main event picture on the RAW brand and give the champion something new to do in the process, with new women’s tag team champs crowned at this weeks Smackdown instead of here more focus will be on the Mysterio’s title shot against the Dirty Dawgs.
WWE Universal Championship Roman Reigns (c) Vs Cesaro
This match could steal the whole show tonight, Cesaro finally getting a singles title shot in the WWE, Roman Reigns is doing the best work of his career alongside Jey Uso and Paul Heyman. The Head of the Table will do anything to retain. Add in the volatile Jimmy Uso to the mix and that sways things into the favour of the Swiss Superman, will the returning Uso side with Reigns and his brother or will he cost the champ? this will be a fun one.
Roman Reigns to Retain.
WWE Championship Triple threat: Bobby Lashley (c) Vs Braun Strowman Vs. Drew McIntyre
This has been a lengthy program on RAW and frankly all three have deserved better, Drew McIntyre should get the title back but with Braun taking the pin to protect Bobby Lashley in the process.
Hopefully this is the last we see of these three going at it for a while and we get a new challenger for the RAW belt in the aftermath.
Drew McIntyre to win.
RAW Women’s Championship Match: Rhea Ripley (c) Vs Asuka Vs. Charlotte Flair.
Another triple threat with the heel Flair injecting herself into the title match in a great segment on RAW a few weeks ago, Ripley and Asuka have had a few matches the past few weeks with varying degrees of success so the addition of Flair will help. It’s still early in Ripley’s run with the belt and I can’t see past her winning this and facing Charlotte at Summer Slam for the title.
Rhea Ripley To Retain.
Smackdown Women’s title Match: Bianca Belair (c) Vs Bayley.
Bayley is the best thing on the Smackdown’s women roster at the moment, her annoying “karen” like heel work is great fun and she knows who to rile up and get heat, Belair has been incredible since her main roster debut and her feel good moment at Wrestlemania was well deserved and this is another match I don’t see a title change.
Bianca Belair to Retain.
Smackdown Tag Team Championship Match: The Dirty Dawgs (Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode) Vs Rey & Dominik Mysterio.
Dolph Ziggler has been getting under the skin of Dominik the past few weeks on Smackdown saying that the legends son has no place in the WWE, this will be the first time in history that a father/son duo have won tag team gold and it all points to a history making night for the Mysterios.
Rey & Dominik Mysterio to win the titles.
Damian Priest Vs The Miz
Another feud that has been ongoing a few months and this surely is the final match between the two and possibly the catalyst to Miz and Morrison splitting and having a match at the next PPV, Priest is impressive and has a great charisma and the talent in ring to back it up so this should be a fin match at least, The Miz can have a good match with anyone though and he plays the cowardly heel role to a tee. this should be fun.
Damian Priest to win.
