WWE has been pulling away from the Lashley and Lana storyline and pushing Lashley as a serious wrestler with his goal being that he wants to win a major title. This would indicate that a title change is coming. It doesn’t necessarily have to be at Backlash.
I was told that the Lashley-McIntyre feud will continue beyond Backlash and into the July pay-per-view and possibly into a stipulation match at SummerSlam so there is plenty of time to put the title on Lashley if that is the direction.
Another thing to note is that Lashley has been wanting a match with Brock Lesnar for years and Lesnar is expected back in time for SummerSlam.
