WWE Backlash 2018, Full Match Card, Preview And Prediction: May 6, 2018
WWE is bringing back the old tradition into their PPV programming starting from Backlash.
From tonight onwards, we will have each of the WWE Network special shows comprised of both Raw and Smackdown Live superstars. Unlike the other shows, full build up around this event was not possible due to the Greatest Royal Rumble and the Superstar Shakeup process.
However, Backlash is still stacked up with five championship matches on the card. Except for the Universal and tag team titles, all the others will be put on the line.
Except for that, Roman Reigns will feature in the main event spotlight, once again, whereas, Daniel Bryan will also compete in a one-on-one match.

The PPV event will come live on the WWE Network from 5.30 AM onwards, tomorrow morning. The host is the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Here is the full match card for Backlash with predictions,
WWE Intercontinental Championship Match
Seth Rollins vs. The Miz
Prediction: Seth Rollins proved to be a strong Intercontinental Champion, till date. It is not likely that is coming to an end at the hands of The Miz, now.
In that case, he will have to move to WWE Raw which is not expected. The Architect is being advertised to defend his championship throughout the UK tour. Hence, he will put up another stellar performance while retaining his title.
WWE United States Championship Match
Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton
Prediction: It is going to be a treat to watch the two veterans fighting it out at Backlash over the US Championship. These two are the two Grand Slam Champions present in the locker room who will give us a match to remember for a long time.
Speaking of the outcome brings us to the strong championship run that Hardy needs. The US title already changed hands numerous times in the last couple of months.
It needs a trusted shoulder like Hardy to remain prestigious. Hence, the champion should retain.

Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley vs. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn
Prediction: At this point, the two behemoths, Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley are dominating WWE Raw forming a team. So, they should bulldoze their way to victory at Backlash. But, Lashley has not been over as a babyface to the fans. If he decides to take a heel turn, then he might betray his partner. It could earn the victory for Owens and Zayn.
Raw Women’s Championship Match
Nia Jax vs. Alexa Bliss
Prediction: It is needless to say, Nia Jax failed to impress the fans as a champion. She could barely reach the impact that Alexa Bliss made with the title in hand.
So, the officials might choose to give back the title to where it belonged, i.e. the trusted shoulder of Little Miss Bliss. It would give them to create a fresh feud between Ember Moon and Bliss after Backlash.

SmackDown Women’s Championship Match
Carmella vs. Charlotte Flair
Prediction: With the presence of Charlotte Flair, Asuka, Becky Lynch by her side, Carmella can never be a strong champion.
She is right out of the league on Smackdown, as of now. So, the title should be taken away from her, abruptly. Charlotte Flair is the rightful holder of the title and should win it for the sixth time in her WWE career ending this day-dream run of the Princess of Staten Island.
Daniel Bryan vs. Big Cass
Prediction: WWE officials have big plans for Big Cass to make him one of the most top heels of the roster. Hence, he was inserted into a feud with Daniel Bryan right after his return. It is a time when he is getting the big push. So, a loss at Backlash would hamper it. For now, Cass should win at Backlash to brag about it and use it to elevate his level to the main event status.

No Disqualification Match For The WWE Championship
AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
Prediction: Overall, this No Disqualification situation at Backlash is tailor-made for Shinsuke Nakamura. He is almost sure to dethrone Styles from the title reign.
It will mark his first WWE Championship which is suitable in the dominant heel character. The match result can only change if the officials have already planned a Styles vs Samoa Joe feud once this PPV event gets over.

Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe
Prediction: The outcome of this match can give a hint whether Roman Reigns is still The Guy in the WWE.
Despite the failures in recent times, he is the main-eventer of Backlash. It is a match that is a must-win for him to keep his status intact on the roster.
At present, The Big Dog is the favourite one to win this contest. It might keep him back in the Universal Championship picture.
