Backlash 2016


Arnold Furious: We’re in Richmond, Virginia. Tonight’s card has already suffered with the injury bug. The proposed tag team tournament has collapsed due to an injury to Chad Gable. I don’t know if that one is legitimate or not but another proposed match is off the cards due to Randy Orton not being cleared to wrestle (after suffering a concussion in the controversial match with Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam). The show still has a few things going for it with AJ challenging for the title and two new belts coming into being with SmackDown exclusive women’s and tag straps. This is the first brand specific PPV since the latest split and it already looks like a struggle for a brand to fill a three hour show. We knew this beforehand but it becomes so much more evident when SmackDown try to put a card together and it’s six matches long and one of those is called off with injuries. WWE can be at its best when backed into a corner though so let’s see how they fair. Hosts are Mauro RanalloJBL and David Otunga.
