Two huge matches have been made official for the match card of WWE WrestleMania Backlash 2023.
This Monday WWE announced that the undisputed tag team champions Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn will team up with Matt Riddle to take on The Bloodline (The Usos & Solo Sikoa) in a six-man tag team match.
Owens & Zayn have been feuding with the Bloodline for a while, whereas Riddle missed several months of action due to an assault by the Bloodline. As a result, he targeted the faction ever since he returned to WWE TV.
Last week on SmackDown, Riddle faced Solo Sikoa in the main event, but the latter managed to get the win. After the match, he buried Riddle under the announce table to close the show.
Moreover, on the April 17 episode of Raw, The Bloodline formed an alliance with the Judgment Day to solve each other’s problems. In the main event, the trio Riddle, Sami & Owens defeated The Judgment Day in a six-man tag team match. After the match, a brawl broke out between the four factions, but in the end, the Latino World Order, and the team of Riddle, Owens & Zayn stood tall.
Brock Lesnar betrayed Cody Rhodes on Raw after WrestleMania, and he brutally assaulted him to close the show. Last week on Raw, Cody Rhodes cut a segment where he challenged Brock Lesnar to a match at WWE WrestleMania Backlash.
The cowboy Brock Lesnar appeared on the April 17 episode of Raw only to provoke Cody Rhodes even more. The American Nightmare tried to attack Lesnar but he was stopped by a swarm of security guards. Adam Pearce then made Brock Lesnar vs Cody Rhodes official for the PPV event.
WWE WrestleMania Backlash is all set to take place from the Coliseo de Puerto Rico in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on May 6, 2023. It will be hosted by none other than Bad Bunny.
