The Backlash card for San Juan, Puerto Rico is taking shape and following SmackDown, it has been confirmed that WWE United States Champion Austin Theory will have both hands full on the show.

The first bouts confirmed for Backlash were Brock Lesnar taking on Cody Rhodes in what is believed to be the show’s main event and The Bloodline – minus Roman Reigns – taking on WWE Tag Team Champions Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn as well as Matt Riddle in a huge six-man tag team match.

On SmackDown in Columbus, Ohio a challenge was laid down by Zelina Vega to SmackDown Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley for the event as the bad blood between The Judgment Day and the LWO continues to boil over.

Seth Rollins faces a huge challenge on the show that nobody saw coming as he will take on the giant Omos in a one-on-one bout.

SmackDown also saw a big title match made as both Bobby Lashley and Bronson Reed will both challenge US Champion Austin Theory for his title. On the 17th of April edition of Raw, Lashley challenged Theory in a title match but it was waved off as a no contest when Bronson Reed attacked Lashley, leaving him lying at ringside.

The updated card for Backlash –

  • Cody Rhodes vs. Brock Lesnar
  • Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Zelina Vega – SmackDown Women’s Title
  • Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn & Matt Riddle vs. The Usos & Solo Sikoa
  • Seth Rollins vs. Omos
  • Austin Theory (c) vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Bronson Reed – WWE United States Title
