WWE Backlash 2017 Predictions

Randy Orton vs Jinder Mahal – WWE Championship:

Smackdown Live goes by the show that provides opportunities and for once they really are with Jinder Mahal. I’ve enjoyed the feud between Orton and Mahal, it brings a different perspective to the WWE storylines, different from what we are used to seeing every week especially on Raw. But for obvious reasons, it is clear that Randy Orton will retain.

Winner: Randy Orton

The Usos vs Breezango – Tag Team Championship:

Well this one should be quite obvious, I’m going for The Usos to retain the titles seeing as they are the dominant tag team on the blue brand. Once the New Day returns, I would like to see a feud between the Usos and the New Day.

Winner: The Usos

Kevin Owens vs AJ Styles – US Title:

This will be one of the matches that could steal the show, we have two amazing athletes in Owens and Styles. Although the build up hasn’t been as good as it can be, the match will pay off. However, I do see Owens retaining here and going on to feud with Shinsuke Nakamura.

Winner: Kevin Owens

Shinsuke Nakamura vs Dolph Ziggler:

This is the match I am looking forward to most. I personally haven’t seen Shinsuke Nakamura wrestle at all, even on NXT so it would be nice to see how he performs. Ziggler is probably the best opponent for him right now and I strongly believe this match could be match of the night.

Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura

Charlotte, Becky Lynch and Naomi vs Carmella (w/ James Ellsworth) Tamina and Natalya:

This has been a strange one, you have Charlotte who is fresh from her trade from Raw to Smackdown and easily the face of the Women’s division in a tag team wth Becky and Naomi taking on Carmella, Tamina and Natalya. I expect a win for Naomi’s team and then for Charlotte to possibly attack Naomi creating a future Women’s Championship match at the next PPV.

Winner: Naomi, Charlotte and Becky Lynch
