It will be the fifth premium live event of the calendar year, and is the first since WrestleMania 38 at the start of April.
In addition, the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship will be on the line at WrestleMania Backlash, with another rematch taking place. This match will see the champion Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey lock horns once more, but with the added stipulation of this being an “I Quit” match.
This clash will see the Raw Tag Champions battle against the SmackDown Tag Champions. Meanwhile, the inclusion of McIntyre and Undisputed Champion Reigns makes for a great match.
While both teams of three include champions, there has been no indication by WWE that any title will be on the line at the event.
