There are ads out in Baltimore for this coming Tuesday’s edition of Smackdown Live. The advertised matches are AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura and Charlotte Flair vs. Carmella. One of those matches could just be a dark match.
This is a minor spoiler but the ads indicate that these feuds will not end at the Backlash pay-per-view on Sunday and will continue, at least, into the Money In The Bank show in June.
For whatever it’s worth, the original plans for the July Extreme Rules pay-per-view was supposed to be Styles defending against Nakamura and Baron Corbin in a Triple Threat Match so, the Styles vs. Nakamura feud could go well into the summer. Obviously, not that Corbin is on Raw, he will not be involved in the WWE Championship match.
Here is the card for Sunday’s WWE Backlash:
WWE Championship – No Disqualification Match
AJ Styles (Champion) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe
Raw Women’s Championship
Nia Jax (Champion) vs. Alexa Bliss
Smackdown Women’s Championship
Carmella (Champion) vs. Charlotte Flair
Seth Rollins (Champion) vs. The Miz
United States Championship
Jeff Hardy (Champion) vs. Randy Orton
Daniel Bryan vs. Big Cass
Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley vs. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn
