In a few days, WWE will offer the Pay Per View (PPV) of Backlash 2020, and on June 14th it could reserve sensational twists. There are several highly anticipated matches, from the "Greatest Wrestling Match Ever" between Edge and Randy Orton to the valid WWE Universal Title match between Braun Strowman vs The Miz & John Morrison, in a Handicap Match.
Millions of viewers await this event which could lead to new twists and changes within the federation. However, the probably most anticipated encounter in this Pay per View is the challenge for the WWE title between champion Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has revealed some rumors that could lead to a dramatic turn of events on June 14th: according to these rumors, the choice to give Lashley a manager like MVP was due to the fact that the federation wants to manage the next world champion through a spokesperson.
In particular, they stressed that Paul Heyman would request a spokesman for The All Mighty.

These predictions suggest that Bobby Lashley will become the next world champion and that Drew McIntyre will abdicate the champion throne.
The same MVP in the last few weeks has remembered several times how much Bobby Lashley has worked hard to get this far and that the moment of an important change to the title and in general to the top of Raw may have come.
Here is the complete card with all the challenges currently scheduled for the Pay per View WWE Backlash: WWE Match Title: Drew McIntyre (c) vs Bobby Lashley
WWE Universal Title: Braun Strowman vs The Miz & John Morrison - Handicap Match

WWE Women's Tag Team Titles: Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross vs The Ilconics (To be confirmed)
Jeff Hardy vs Sheamus (To be confirmed) Backlash was originally booked to take place in Kansas City, Missouri on June 14, 2020.
However, the event was not announced or promoted until May 10 during WWE's Money in the Bank PPV; the advertisement had no reference to a city or venue but confirmed the event for June 14. It was WWE's first event to be announced after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, which began affecting WWE's programming in mid-March.
The pandemic forced the promotion to move the majority of its shows to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida with no fans in attendance, though in late May, WWE began using Performance Center trainees to serve as the live audience.
