The evening dedicated to Wrestlemania Backlash, was undoubtedly full of surprises for fans of the WWE Universe, from the zombie attack that took place in the Lumberjack match between The Miz and Damian Priest, up to the attack of Seth Rollins against Cesaro, in post-match between the Swiss and the company's Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns.
After also seeing the sensational victory of the Mysterios, who became for the first time in the history of WWE couple champions, with no couple formed by father and son who had ever held such belts, WWE has decided to change its schedule once again annual, which had already happened last year, when due to the pandemic he had changed some PPVs (including Money in the Bank), moving them to his liking, also given the absence of live audiences at these events.
WWE twists its schedule
On the eve of Wrestlemania Backlash, many wondered why WWE had decided to move Monday to the Bank, given that last year the event aired in May, with Otis and Asuka having in fact won the respective matches in the Titan Towers in Stamford, just in the same month.
After deciding to postpone Money in the Bank for a month, WWE would have thought about it once again, moving the event with the stairs and suitcases, even in July, with a new PPV taking over instead in the summer, moving from the autumn part of the year: Hell in a Cell.
After years in which the PPV was broadcast in October or at most in September, the WWE has instead decided to keep the PPV dedicated to the infernal cages in June, with the date of the 20th of the aforementioned month, which will in fact be the precise day in which it will go aired from the ThunderDome the event.
After reporting yesterday the news of the return to the public for the WWE in July, it is now clear that the McMahon federation wants to keep Money in the Bank in front of a real audience, so probably, for this reason, there is.
it was this unusual shift of PPV. WWE WrestleMania Backlash had a few big championship matches scheduled for the show. Rhea Ripley defeated Asuka and Charlotte Flair after a good contest. The Nightmare pinned Asuka clean to retain her RAW Women’s Championship.
Bobby Lashley also retained his title by pinning Braun Strowman in the Triple Threat Match for his WWE Championship. Were Asuka and Strowman simply added to the two matches to take the pin as expected? Bianca Belair retained her SmackDown Women’s Championship by pinning Bayley. Who will step up to The EST following her victory at WrestleMania Backlash?
