    WrestleMania Backlash is scheduled to take place on May 16, 2021 and will be broadcast from the WWE ThunderDome, hosted at the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida

    WWE Championship Raw, Bobby Lashley (C) vs. Drew McIntyre

    I expect some other WM rematches in some form to feature

    Will we be getting Edge vs. Bryan with the winner later facing SD world champion Reigns if Cesaro will have to still deal with Rollins?

    What a stupid name for a PPV. Great balls of fire can’t rest easy as it’s no longer the worst name for a PPV ever.

    3 Raws before that. Plenty of time for the indefinite suspension to end

    Mad isn't it?
    Like it goes to show you that WWE keep looking to the past. The idea of a Wrestlemania "backlash" was originally called the revenge tour back in the 90s. But that made sense at it was a series of house shows overseas. For example: Bret vs Owen for the title in Rome, Italy 1994 ( https://www.cagematch.net/?id=1&nr=38301 ) Take the big show matches on the road to make some more money.

    Then in the 2000s WWE took that concept and made it a ppv event in April right?

    Sonya has added Charlotte to the Raw title match after fastest suspension for her

    Sigh.

    Well that’s another title for Charlotte then. She’ll probably make Asuka look like an idiot and asuka will take the pin.

    Not a big Rhea fan but she needs to retain, I would imagine Asuka pinned with Charlotte and Rhea to continue their feud yet both are heels

    Not sure how you can’t be a big fan of Rhea. She has massive potential and she’s a star and unlike Charlotte flair she’s likeable in general. I don’t think they’ll have Rhea lose as I can’t see them making the mistakes they made in NXT. What the main roster has done to asuka is a disgrace.

    I do feel sorry for Asuka

    Are fans going to be at this ppv


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,188 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Don't think so, virtual crowd again

    Might as well give this a watch, not expecting much or any big shocks. Would love Cesaro to win the title but hard to see then taking the belt off Roman

    He might win by DQ by Usos or Rollins involvement, keep the hunt going give him the title at Summerslam

    How long has Reigns been champ now?


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,981 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    We've still got 2 PPVs before Summerslam after tonight.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,154 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    Grim card.

    Reigns/Cesaro should be a good match but the result is without any doubt.


  • Registered Users Posts: 679 ✭✭✭daithi1989


    I’m gonna be that guy..

    They should have named the PPV Backlash: Who cares.

    The fact Cesaro is heading a b ppv says it all about his chances for success.

    And once he losses due to Jimmy/Jey interference he will end up back in midcard heel just like KO did.

    Vinny Mac is having they time of his life using Roman to squash all the internet darlings.

    WWE don’t give a f**k anymore and nor should they. Fox and NBC have paid them an obscene amount of money for rights. I genuinely hope NBC and Fox are raging at the deal it’s genuinely like buy products well gone past their sell by date on the hope to attract new customers.

    The WWE have a guy in Cesaro who is over and could get more over to be their top face now DB is gone, Cesaro is a bit bland on the mic but that can improve and he can talk less just keep swinging :p he is off a big WM win and feud and imho it's about time he deserves a singles push and world title reign which could happen at Summerslam


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,188 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    The Queen reclaiming her title to start us off


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,763 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Bizarre opening video with big Dave doing the narration. That new raw play by play guy isn’t Michael Cole so already it’s a plus. I really hope Charlotte doesn’t win.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,108 ✭✭✭johnnysmack


    Charlotte looks in amazing condition at the minute. Not that she was ever a slouch but she looks even more toned and athletic than normal!


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,188 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Best result, its still too early for Rhea to lose the title


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,763 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Rhea retains which is good. Yeah that time off for Charlotte has done her the world of good. She just looks generally in far better shape.

    He looks like a worlds champion.


    Jesus Michael Cole and pat mcaffee. That’s some duo.

    Where was Charlotte for the pin? Botched move?

    Bad camera work I would guess. She gave asuka a big boot through the ropes. Asuka felt back into the ring to rhea so can only guess Charlotte fell off the ring that the camera didn't show.

    As for this tag match, I hate the mysterios and hope they both would just go away.
