Two Title Matches added to next month’s WWE Backlash, current lineup

Two Title Matches have been added to next month’s WWE Backlash.

Rhea Ripley will defend the the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship against Zelina Vega at next month’s Backlash. During Friday’s episode of SmackDown Vega asked Adam Pearce for a SmackDown Women’s Championship Match against Ripley, telling him that she as a Puerto Rican, deserves an opportunity to defeat Ripley in Puerto Rico. The match was then later confirmed during the show.

A three-way for the WWE United States Championship has also been added to Backlash, with champion Austin Theory defending against Bobby Lashley and Bronson Reed. Theory was defending the title against Lashley on last Monday’s episode of Raw when Bronson, who had wrestled Lashley on the Raw prior, attacked Lashley, causing the disqualification.

Below is the current lineup for Backlash.

-The Usos and Solo Sikoa vs. Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and Matt Riddle

-Cody Rhodes vs. Brock Lesnar

Seth Rollins vs. Omos
