Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn will defend their undisputed WWE Tag Team titles against The Usos. Zelina Vega will face Sonya Deville in a singles match. All this will happen alongside the build-up to Backlash 2023 event. Read below to check the complete preview and match card of WWE SmackDown April 28, 2023.

WWE Draft Night 1

Two weeks ago, Triple H opened SmackDown and announced that WWE Draft would return on the April 28 edition of SmackDown. He also revealed that every single superstar would be eligible to be picked for this draft. It was also noted that Triple H saved a lot of returns, surprises, and NXT call-ups for the draft. So, who do you think will be the first overall pick this year and which of your favorite superstars will land on Red brand or Blue brand?

WrestleMania Main Event Rematch

On the April 14 episode of SmackDown, Paul Heyman revealed that The Usos would face Zayn & Owens in a WrestleMania rematch for the undisputed WWE tag team titles. During the segment, Paul Heyman also stated that Roman is losing patience with you two. It was pointing towards the champions, but he looked at the Usos. Will the Usos be able to make Roman Reigns happy by winning the titles back? They have already dedicated this win to Roman Reigns. How will the Tribal Chief react if they fail to win the titles?

Zelina Vega vs Sonya Deville

Last week, Sonya Deville and Chelsea Green confronted Zelina Vega backstage. They were frustrated as they failed to win the women’s tag team titles. They also didn’t like the fact that Zelina Vega is getting a SmackDown women’s title shot against Rhea Ripley at WWE Backlash. Vega challenged Sonya Devilles to a singles match which she accepted. Will Zelina be able to gain momentum before her clash against Rhea?

What Else To Expect?

A few call-ups from NXT are expected to be part of WWE Draft this year along with some returns. Big E is one of the names slated to make his return.

Intercontinental Champion Gunther’s match for Backlash is not made official as of now. Who will he end up facing at the event?

    1. I liked seeing the WWE draft where we see different superstars in different weekly shows, and new battles and new title holders as well.

  2. Hope to see new faces on smackdown after the draft, the Uso’s, Solo, and Roman need to be sent over to Raw ad well Heyman.

    1. Edward Padilla i read your comment i love to see solo sikoa on raw brand by himself nobody will help him he can handle matches of his own with no help let you know about the tag team championship on smackdown. Sami and KO will retain and Usos will be disqualified does anybody remembers Roman Regins did to riddle and orton so they can be down the line and let tag team get the chance to challenge the New Day is still undeafted longest regining tag team champions in WWE history they are the ones to have long time rivialry with the Usos in WWE champions and also there is 2 former universal champions Finn Balor is the first and Kevin Owens is the second and also let Cody Rhodes get his wrestlemania rematch against Roman Reigns that match is a fluke he cheated because of Solo and Usos.
