WWE Backlash 2018 Start Time & Location

Various matches that are already confirmed for WWE Backlash 2018:
- Roman Reigns Vs Samoa Joe: It’s been going a lot between Reigns and Joe after Reigns lost to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 34. Joe wants to take revenge of his not being active on RAW as Reigns injured him badly. The rivalry between Reigns and Joe started when Joe damaged the finger of Dean Ambrose. Reigns took the revenge from Joe and he clearly said: “Hand for Hand”. Joe after GRR 2018 came to RAW and made a statement that he is going to put the BIG DOG in sleep at Backlash 2018.
- AJ Styles Vs Shinsuke Nakamura for WWE Championship: Right after WrestleMania 34, when Shinsuke Nakamura showed a surprising character to AJ Styles and WWE Fans. He gave a blow JOB to AJ Styles when he lost the championship title to AJ Styles. Also, in a series on SmackDown Live, Shinsuke Nakamura didn’t miss a chance to attack AJ Styles from behind and hurting him badly. This would be a rematch between the two who used to have a huge respect for each other but now turned to be the greatest rivals.
- Seth Rollins Vs The Miz for Intercontinental Championship: The Miz will reclaim his title in a rematch against Seth Freaking Rollins at Backlash. The Mizz lost his title at WrestleMania. He lost his chance again after the Superstars Shakeup at GRR 2018. This would be his last chance to get the title back to him and carry it on SmackDown.
- Nia Jaxx Vs Alexa Bliss For RAW Women’s Championship: Nia brutally beat Alexa at WrestleMania 34 and became the new RAW women’s champion. Now Alexa will have his rematch again the BIG Strong woman at Backlash. We hope that Micky James won’t interrupt between the two.
- Charlotte Vs Carmella For SmackDown Women’s Championship: Carmella smartly used her money in the bank contract in SmackDown after the Queen defeated the Asuka at WrestleMania. Charlotte was attacked badly by the Riot squad and it gave a chance to Carmella to cash money in the bank contract, which she did. Charlotte will have a rematch clause against Carmella. We surely can have a new champion again.
- Jeff Hardy Vs Randy Orton For United States Championship: Jeff Hardy challenged the Modern Day Maharaja after the superstar’s shakeup and won the US title. Jindal used his rematch clause but couldn’t get the title back. Earlier, the title was with Randy Orton who will now use his rematch clause against Jeff Hardy at WWE Backlash 2018. The Viper is a strong contender for the title and there is doubt in it.
- Daniel Bryan Vs Big Cass: Big Cass made his come back to SmackDown Live after the injury and straightaway he started targeting Daniel Bryan. After a lot of tease and rumors, finally, the two will settle their dispute inside the ring at Backlash.
- Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley vs Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn: This would be a tag team match between the four giants of WWE. Braun Strowman and Lashley are favorite to win.
