WWE Smackdown Preview (21/05/21): Fatal-4-Way: Wrestlemania Backlash Fallouts

WrestleMania Backlash fallouts will be gathered on this week’s episode of SmackDown that should also mark the beginning of builds for WWE Hell In a Cell 2021. New storylines for the prime titles should begin while a massive main event is stored for the Intercontinental Championship. A Fatal-4-Way will go down when the show airs from the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida.

In the main event of WrestleMania Backlash, Cesaro challenged Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship. The Swiss Cyborg brought the best of efforts in his very first world title match but that wasn’t enough to keep the champion, down. Without any assistance from Paul Heyman or Jey Uso, the Tribal Chief choked out his opponent with the Guillotine submission.

Now, he will move forward to his next challenge and it is going be Jimmy Uso, going by the storyline. For the past couple of weeks on SmackDown, the elder Uso denied falling in line with the Head of the Table. Rather, he is happy to spread the ‘nobody’s b**ch’ message written on his shirt, despite the persuasion by his brother Jey.

Following his win at Backlash, Roman Reigns took to Twitter to send a message to Jimmy Uso. He denied responding to any sort of calls and messages from his cousin. The message ended indicating a confrontation between the two of them on SmackDown. We’ll have to wait and see whether the next Universal Title Match between these two gets booked during this segment.

After Roman Reigns emerged victorious over Cesaro, Jey Uso started attacking Cesaro, and shortly after that, Seth Rollins came out to have a staredown with Roman Reigns. Then he set his sights on Cesaro who was left in a destroyed state by ringside. A chair attack was finished with a brutal Curb Stomp.

It genuinely hints that Seth Rollins and Cesaro is on collision course, once again and this time they may fight inside the Hell in a Cell structure. For now, the SmackDown Savior advised Roman Reigns to take care of the situation with Jimmy Uso. If The Tribal Chief doesn’t keep the situation under control, then he will run into trouble with Rollins.

Apollo Crews decided to facilitate his associate Commander Azeez with great Nigerian Honor on last week’s SmackDown for helping him out over the past several weeks. But the scene turned out to be chaotic as the potential contenders for the title ran into the ring to bring utter chaos to it.

Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and Big E were involved in the brawl that resulted in Crews heading straight into Adam Pearce’s office to make things right. In return, the champion was awarded a sudden title defense in the toughest way possible. Now Apollo Crews will have to defend against Kevin, Sami, and E in a Fatal-4-Way Match. Needless to say that the existing title run is in sheer jeopardy.

A historic title change was witnessed at WrestleMania Backlash when Rey and Dominik Mysterio became the first-ever father-son duo to hold tag team championships. They defeated Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode to earn the feat who will now enter SmackDown as new champs. What new challenge could be waiting for them? We’ll find out when Friday night’s hottest show airs on FOX.

Wrestlemania Backlash 2021: Historic Title Change Takes Place At WWE PPV

Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio have become the new WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions at WrestleMania Backlash. The pay-per-view event witnessed The Mysterios defeat Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode to capture the titles as they have now become the first father-son duo to become tag champs. This is historic as never before in WWE, such an incident had taken place.

Rey wrestled the first part of this Wrestlemania Backlash title match, all by himself after Dominik was attacked earlier in the night by Roode and Ziggler during a backstage segment. Dominik then appeared towards the end of the match to help his father. Rey hit a 619 to Roode while a sunset flip bomb from him took out Ziggler. Dominik then hit the top rope frog splash to receive the pin on Roode to win the titles.

As mentioned, this is the first title run for Rey and Dominik together, making them the first father-son duo to win gold in WWE. Rey also won tag titles in WWE at Wrestlemania Backlash after over a decade. Ziggler and Roode won the titles back on the January 8 SmackDown episode by defeating The Street Profits – Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins.

Potential reason behind this title ain at Wrestlemania Backlash

It should be noted that the title win by Mysterios was expected at Wrestlemania Backlash. According to the reports of Wrestling News, WWE officials have plans for The Usos to become SmackDown Tag Team Champions once again so that all the three Samoan brothers – Roman Reigns, Jey, and Jimmy Uso will be champions to solidify their faction – The Bloodline.

Wrestlemania Backlash 2021: Historic Title Change Takes Place At WWE PPV 20

Since they will all be heels, WWE officials also want The Usos to defeat a babyface tag team to become the new SmackDown Tag Team Champions. This is why the former tag champs, Bobby Roode and Dolph Ziggler were planned to drop the belts to the team of Dominik and Rey Mysterio.

This is the reason why Rey and Dominik Mysterio have won the tag titles at Wrestlemania Backlash but there’s doubt whether they will have a decent or lengthy title run. Since the family angle between Reigns and Usos has taken over Smackdown, it’s likely that they could soon be challenging the Mysterios for the titles and win the gold.

Wrestlemania Backlash 2021: Legendary Batista Sends His Zombies To WWE PPV

Wrestlemania Backlash witnessed a strange scene where a wave of zombies invaded a WWE show for the first time in history. Former WWE Champion Batista sent some of his “Army of the Dead” zombies to be present at last night’s pay-per-view. It was all done in a kayfabe purpose in order to promote the upcoming Netflix flick starring The Animal in the lead role.

At the beginning of Wrestlemania Backlash, Batista dropped a pre-show tweet saying that he couldn’t make it to the pay-per-view, but some of his “friends” would be there. It was previously announced that Zack Snyder’s “Army of the Dead” movie would be one of the co-sponsors of the event as those “friends” appeared to be were a large group of zombies. They were used for the Zombies Lumberjack Match between The Miz and Damian Priest.

This match at Wrestlemania Backlash saw Priest get the win. There was a spot when he and Miz teamed up at ringside to fight off a group of zombies. Morrison ran away early in the match but he came back down the ramp to fight off several zombies.

Eventually, the zombies pulled him over the barrier and then ate him. The finish of the match saw Priest deliver Hit the Lights on Miz for the pin to win. He then retreated to safety as the zombies entered the ring to eat The Miz while he was down.

The storyline perspective to change this match involving the zombies was that WWE Official Adam Pearce was behind it, as revealed on Twitter. This goes back to RAW where Priest asked Pearce to make his Wrestlemania Backlash encounter with The Miz a Lumberjack Match, telling him he could bring “RAW Superstars, SmackDown Superstars, aliens or even zombies.”

Nonetheless, it was a pleasant surprise to see a match in a different kind of setting inside WWE ThunderDome. Batista was also the one who narrated the opening video package of WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view. His “Army of the Dead” movie had a limited theatrical release this past weekend which will hit Netflix this coming Friday. Meanwhile, the bygone match has wrapped up the feud between Miz and Priest that is ongoing even before Wrestlemania 37.

WWE Wrestlemania Backlash 2021: Spoiler On Match Outcomes

WWE tends to extend the WrestleMania season by hosting the WrestleMania Backlash event on May 16. More than one month after the Biggest Event of the Year, this show is expected to settle the unfinished business from the 37th ‘Mania edition. Additionally, some new programs will also begin. The match card for the PPV is all set as we can now predict the winners.

Betting odds for WrestleMania Backlash are out and it suggests that only a pair of titles might just change hands. According to the latest odds from SkyBet, Rey and Dominik Mysterio are likely to make history, this Sunday. They are the betting favorites to defeat the Dirty Dawgs – Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler to become the new tag champs.

As the Mysterios expect to become the first-ever father-son duo in WWE history to become tag team champions, the other challengers are mostly underdogs. The bookies are placing odds on the champions in every other match on the WrestleMania Backlash card. This doesn’t guarantee anything as you can absolutely expect the unexpected in the WWE.

Natalya And Tamina Snuka Become New Tag Champs On Smackdown

Currently, Universal Champion Roman Reigns, SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair, Raw Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley, and WWE Champion Bobby Lashley are all the favorites to retain in their respective matches at WrestleMania Backlash. Damian Priest is also a heavy betting favorite, per the odds to beat The Miz in their lumberjack match.

WWE WrestleMania Backlash betting odds

You can check out the full betting odds for the WrestleMania Backlash card as given below,

UNIVERSAL TITLE
Roman Reigns (1/6) vs. Cesaro (7/2)

WWE TITLE
Bobby Lashley (2/5) vs. Braun Strowman (7/1) vs. Drew McIntyre (11/4)

RAW WOMEN’S TITLE
Rhea Ripley (4/7) vs. Charlotte Flair (2/1) vs. Asuka (13/2)

SMACKDOWN WOMEN’S TITLE
Bianca Belair (1/16) vs. Bayley (7/1)

SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM TITLES
Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode (9/4) vs. Rey and Dominik Mysterio (1/3)

Damian Priest (1/7) vs. The Miz (4/1) – Lumberjack Match

These odds make sense as most of the champions are predicted retainers are new champions who need time to establish their legacy. From Raw, both Lashley and Ripley are spreading wings as strong heels and they need some more times with the belt. Same would be the case for Bianca Belair as a babyface. As for Roman Reigns, it’s all about forcing Cesaro to acknowledge him at WrestleMania Backlash.

WWE Smackdown Preview (14/05/21): One Last Stand; Women’s Tag Title Match

The final SmackDown TV episode before WrestleMania Backlash will go down, tonight with a confrontation set between the Universal Champion and his current challenger. Women’s Tag Team Championships will be defended in a WrestleMania rematch while we also expect more announcements regarding the PPV when the show airs from the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida.

In last week’s Throwback SmackDown edition, legendary General Manager Theodore Long returned to the scene and announced that Cesaro could beat Seth Rollins in the scheduled match then he would earn the right to challenge Roman Reigns at WrestleMania Backlash. Via interferences from Jimmy and Jey Uso, Cesaro managed to pin The Messiah.

The win handed him the opportunity that he has been waiting for so long. For the first time in his career, Cesaro will compete in a world title match as he goes one-on-one with the Universal Champion Roman Reigns at this Sunday’s PPV event, with the title hanging in the balance. To hype up the match, the two will feature in a one last stand segment on SmackDown.

To make things interesting, the Swiss Superman isn’t the only problem that Roman Reigns is dealing with. He brought back Jimmy Uso to replace the former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan who’s been expelled from the blue brand. But the elder Uso has some apparent issues to ‘fall in line’ with the Head of the Table.

It was primarily Jimmy who is the reason behind Cesaro gaining the upper hand during his match against Seth Rollins. The SmackDown Savior isn’t happy about it and he wants to take care of business which could set up a singles contest between the two of them at WrestleMania Backlash.

A confrontation took place between Bayley and Bianca Belair to plug in their scheduled match at Backlash where the challenger prevailed. The SmackDown Women’s Champion was pulled by her earrings by Bayley who was able to send a strong message. The Role Model isn’t done chasing the gold and the EST of the WWE will have to retaliate, as soon as possible.

In a rematch from WrestleMania 37, Natalya and Tamina Snuka will challenge the Women’s Tag Team Champions – Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler with the titles on the line. Last week, Tamina squared off against Reginald in a singles contest who had the upper hand with a Superkick but then the champions pounced on her causing the disqualification.

Both Nia and Shayna delivered a beatdown on Tamina. Natalya came for the save but the numbers game wasn’t in her favor. That beating perhaps made the duo even stronger than before as they continue their quest to clad themselves with the pair of belts. Will they be successful in their mission? We have to keep our eyes on SmackDown to receive the answers.

WWE Official Adam Pearce noted that Priest can pick the stipulation if he wins, while Morrison can pick the stipulation if he wins.

Wrestlemania Backlash 2021: WWE Universal Title Match Announced

After spending almost 15 years in the WWE, Cesaro will compete in his first-ever singles world title match at WrestleMania Backlash. This appears to be a culmination of his current big push. But then again, the Head of the Table will be standing against him shortening the chances of capturing the ultimate prize, the belt.

Cesaro vs. WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns has now been made official for the WWE WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view. This week’s Throwback SmackDown opening segment witnessed the return of Jimmy Uso who had a reunion with brother Jey Uso to re-form The Usos.

This segment also featured a special appearance by WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long who announced that Cesaro would earn a title shot from Reigns if he could beat Seth Rollins in their scheduled singles match, later that night. In the main event, Rollins was distracted while having some words with The Usos at ringside.

This led Cesaro to get the pinfall win and becoming the new number-one contender for the Universal Title at WrestleMania Backlash who challenges Reigns in a one-on-one capacity. The champion successfully defended in a Triple Threat featuring Daniel Bryan and Edge at WrestleMania 37 which was followed by another successful defense against Bryan in a Career vs Title match, last week on SmackDown.

Wrestlemania Backlash 2021: Huge Change Made To WWE Title Match

A huge change has been announced to the WWE Championship match at the upcoming WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view. Previously, Drew McIntyre vs. WWE Champion Bobby Lashley for the title was announced for the show but it will now be a Triple Threat Match also featuring Braun Strowman who was gunning for a title shot for quite sometimes.

This week’s WWE Raw came, live with the builds for the first-ever WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view event where the opening match featured former RETRIBUTION members T-BAR and MACE competing in a two-on-one Handicap Match against Braun Strowman. It was disqualified as MACE and T-BAR hammered away on their opponent without hearing the referee’s warnings.

Then a tag team match went down on the show with Braun Strowman and Drew McIntyre teaming against the team of MACE and T-BAR. The match witnessed a count-out win handed to the heels as the babyfaces failed to enter the ring within the referee’s ten-count. Strowman was irate about the outcome who took out McIntyre with a Running PowerSlam before leaving the ring.

As the issues between Strowman and McIntyre continued on Raw, the latter demanded a singles contest to be made between them. WWE Official Adam Pearce made the match official for the main event of the show. Strowman later confronted Pearce and urged him to be put in the WrestleMania Backlash match if he could beat McIntyre. His wish was granted as Pearce made it official.

Strowman ended up defeating McIntyre in that main event match, which saw interferences by Lashley, MVP, T-BAR, and MACE, once again proving that they must have been working as an alliance. McIntyre was ready to execute the Claymore Kick on Strowman when MACE and T-BAR distracted him. They had been knocked off the apron but Strowman dropped McIntyre with his Running Powerslam to get the win and secure his spot at WrestleMania Backlash.

Speaking of the pay-per-view, it will take place on May 16 from the WWE ThunderDome at the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida. WWE Backlash has been an earlier tradition to continue the WrestleMania fallout but as mentioned above, they’re using the name WrestleMania Backlash for the very first time. As of now, the match card stands as follows,

WWE Smackdown Preview (23/04/21): Wrestlemania Backlash Builds

The second episode of SmackDown following WrestleMania 37 is slated to air, this week to potentially begin the storylines for the next pay-per-view. Named WrestleMania Backlash, the event is likely to stretch out the unfinished businesses from the Biggest Event of the Year. Champions are expected to receive new opponents when the show airs from the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida.

Roman Reigns made a triumphant statement on SmackDown, last week after his victory over Edge and Daniel Bryan in the Triple Threat at WrestleMania 37. He claimed that there was no one left for him to face when Cesaro dared to step up as he was confident enough after his victory over Seth Rollins on The Grandest Stage of Them All.

The interruption delighted the WWE Universe for a bit as the two confronted teasing mouth-watering future bout but then Roman Reigns openly disrespected The Swiss Superman by making his exit without saying a word. Cesaro made another statement when he almost upstaged Jey Uso in the main event, later the night if not it was for Seth Rollins.

The SmackDown Savior was fuming from the big loss at WrestleMania 37 and claimed that the feud isn’t over. Before Cesaro could execute the Cesaro Swing on the winner of the 2021 Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, Rollins suddenly emerged to take out his adversary with some cheap shots, making his intentions clear that he wants a rematch which could happen at WrestleMania Backlash.

That being said, Cesaro won’t be in the Universal Title picture, right away as he’d be busy wrapping up his program with Rollins. That leaves the challenger’s position vacant for the Universal Title.

The question remains who’d be brave enough to go toe-to-toe against Roman Reigns. Will Hall of Famer Edge be back for the singles match that he never receive? Or, WWE might plan to insert someone from the active roster into the scenario.

WWE Smackdown Preview (23/04/21): Wrestlemania Backlash Builds 180

Speaking of the title picture, the SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair claimed that WrestleMania 37 was just the beginning for her to start making history. The celebration will continue for her with Street Profits by her side but a certain Sasha Banks would be there to spoil the party.

She’s still seething over the fact hoe Beliar used her braids to leave a scar on her belly. So she’d be more than happy to make a major statement and thereby receive the rematch over the title.

As for the other titles, Natalya earned a clean pinfall win over Shayna Baszler, last week. Hence she and Tamina Snuka will still be after the Women’s Tag Team Championships. The Intercontinental Champion Apollo Crews also declared that he has no problems in giving a rematch to Big E and hence this rivalry will also continue when SmackDown airs with its latest installment.
