    the usos could cost American Alpha the titles or Alpha will win and Rhyno will gore Heath Slater after the match (Slater blames Rhyno for the lose etc)

    Orton to beat Wyatt but will get attacked by a returning Luke Harper

    Ambrose to retain and Styles to win the title at Survivor Series

    Becky for the womens title hopefully

    Miz to retain with outside help


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,725 ✭✭✭SureYWouldntYa


    Surely Styles has to win

    After all his talk of being the "face that runs the place" since he beat Cena, it makes no sense for him not to win imo

    Where would he go if he lost clean to Ambrose? I see this feud going on for a while, but with Styles as champ and Ambrose chasing

    I'd assume some undercard matches will be added as only 5 matches are in place now with no more shows in advance of it.

    Maybe The Uso's will beat some face team (Headbangers or something) on the pre-show or Baron Corbin will actually have a match with Kalisto whom he did beat up backstage a few times with no follow up iirc


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,439 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    The Miz has to win and Ziggler has to lose to keep both their story lines going.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,679 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    I agree with what the rest of ye fine gents have said about the other matches but the one I think HAS to happen is becky lynch to win. I mean for all that is good and holy in this big rock in the Milky Way.

    I mean becky is respected for her in ring skills(best on roster IMO) and she is a great PR person for the company and is well liked by the top brass apparently. She is also the only one of the four horsewomen to not win either the nxt or wwe women's title.

    Becky for champion lads. Becky for champion.

    Haven't American Alphas been pulled and it's now The Usos vs Hype Bros with the winners moving onto the final later in the night?

    that clears up my (having not seen talking smack) confusion...
    It was reported shortly after SmackDown went off the air last night by Shane McMahon on “Talking Smack” that Chad Gable has suffered a significant “injury” as a result of the post-match attack by The Usos that has taken American Alpha out of the Tag Team Tournament finals this Sunday night at WWE Backlash.

    Shane McMahon revealed that Chad Gable had suffered a storyline ACL injury, which will put him on the shelf for a timetable of two to four weeks. In order to determine who will face Heath Slater and Rhyno in the finals of the tournament at WWE Backlash, The Usos will face The Hype Bros on Sunday to determine the team that will face Slater and Rhyno to become the SmackDown Tag Team Champions later in the night.

    You know what I like about the looks of this PPV? Every match has some decent storytelling to it. Not just the uppercard matches, and not just a "I wanna fight you, just cause!" story. Proper character development, built up over multiple weeks. There's not one match on the card I can look at and think "I've no interest in seeing where this goes". Every match has potential to end in multiple interesting ways.

    For the first single-brand PPV, they've done a very good job with the build up.

    Presume Uso's will beat the ****e Bros and then Jordan to run in and cost them the tag titles


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,678 ✭✭✭lawlolawl


    That is a dire card outside of the Styles match.

    Take Becky out of the women's match and it's a who's who of bad female wrestlers.

    I can see Usos winning and American Alpha chasing the belts.

    If Usos are heels, having them win two matches on the same night would be a weird decision. Thats one of the most babyface methods of winning a title possible...

    Not if they cheat to win and if they screw slater out of a contract. Slater is hugely over so it'll give them decent heat beating him.

    Gotta be a 2 hour PPV, yeah? No way they are squeezing three hours out of that card.

    Noobie question - is this live on wwe network? I subscribed to it to watch old episodes, but haven't watch any new content in years.

    Yeah, will stream live on the Network, and then Be up On Demand a little while afterwards. It's usually up on demand when I wake up the morning following the show.

    Is Mr. Smackdown John Cena still touring with the Raw crew?


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,439 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Wafer thin roster being exposed on its first PPV.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 18,190 Mod ✭✭✭✭DM_7


    If Aj wins, Becky wins and Uso's complete a strong heel turn then it can still be a significant show regardless of what else in booked.

    WWE had lots of insignificant shows with filler before the split.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,469 ✭✭✭LeeJM


    Not seeing why everyone is complaining about the thin roster. Every match is gonna have time to tell a story. AJ and Ambrose is gonna go at least 35-40 mins and the Womens match will get about 15-20. Everything else will get enough time within the other 2 hrs.

    Also considering its a thin roster the following Smackdown talent are not competing tonight ; Baron Corbin, Apollo Crews, Kane, American Alpha, Breezango, Erick Rowan and Kalisto. To me the PPV has been booked well and every match has a build and the outcomes are important.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,216 ✭✭✭Ageyev


    Still looking forward to AJ winning and the women's match too. Dreary show otherwise but yeah, it's not the first lackluster show of the Network era

    Least my predictions came true.

    I fell asleep when Kane came out, watched the rest on replay


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,525 ✭✭✭bennyl10


    Orton apparently not cleared for tonight.

    Out of the event.

    Sorry didn't see earlier post!


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,439 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Corbin vs Apollo for the kick off what happens when two charisma black holes collide we shall find out tonight.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,893 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    I assumed the tag match would be on the kickoff show as well?

    So is it still the injury from Brock keeping Orton off? They underestimate what that injury would do?

    I think Lita may be hotter now than she was back in her wrestling days.
