Backlash rematches

WWE.com has announced three Backlash rematches from last night’s PPV in Chicago for the upcoming Smackdown Live taping in New Orleans, Louisiana on June 13.

This includes Jinder Mahal defending the WWE Championship against Randy Orton (in what will be Mahal’s first likely title defense), Kevin Owens defending the WWE United States Championship against AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Dolph Ziggler.

The article notes this will be WWE’s last event in New Orleans before WrestleMania 34 next year on April 8 inside the┬áMercedes-Benz Superdome.

  1. Well that’s already a good 15 minutes of the show just with Orton and Nakamura’s entrances.

  2. So true. I HATE when companies basically redo a PPV on free TV. That pretty much devalues what the point of me wanting to tune in to see the PPV if you’re just going to it over again. Outside of rematch clauses being invoked, I dont think there should be a PPV redo on the next show, let alone 3 of the same matches.

  3. Don’t think so. At least that whole process turned Christan heel and at least he could say he was in a ladder match, two days prior. They could, but don’t see the logic.
