WWE Smackdown Preview is set for an interesting night as we have a throwback episode tonight that we expect to be more of a homage with plenty of comical bits like the Raw Reunion shows.
Of course, there’s no description being given so it’s going to be interesting to see if any legends come back, what skits are done, and how much story building actually goes on tonight for Backlash.
One match that we do know of as of this writing is where Cesaro will face Seth Rollins in a WrestleMania rematch.
Cesaro should win
With Daniel Bryan’s “banned” from Smackdown and his WWE contract reportedly over, Cesaro has a clear path to being the show’s top face as he gets ready to close out his feud with Seth Rollins.
Rollins it a main eventer, though, and that could present a problem as he can put someone over but Cesaro needs to string together a series of clean wins to help build himself for a confrontation with Roman Reigns.
If Rollins wins, or even loses through disqualification or it ends in No Contest, he’ll solidify his position as second to Reigns and it’ll be closer to a feud between them for the top heel spot than good vs. evil.
Which way will they go? We’ll have to wait and see.
Bayley continues her chase
After losing in a mixed tag match last week, we expect Bayley to continue being a thorn in Bianca Belair’s side as she gets ready to win back her championship at Backlash.
We expect it to mainly be a war of words before Bayley challenges Belair to a warm up match. She’ll then back out for reasons to frustrate Belair.
We’re curious of Sasha Banks is going to pop in at some point, and since we’re expecting triple threats galore for Backlash, it won’t surprise us if she challenges Bayley to a match to get into the action.
Women’s tag titles
With their win last week, Tamina and Natalya have shown they deserve another title shot at Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler’s tag titles and we expect that to continue being hyped as well.
We expect either a singles match of a multiple tag team match to further earn their shot.
Since the WWE has been on a roll with gimmick matches lately, we won’t be surprised it the Riott Squad beats them tonight and gets in on a triple threat match.
Smackdown Tag Championship chase
Another mainstay has been Rey and Dominik Mysterio, and we expect them to take another step to punching their ticket to face the Dirty Dawgs at Backlash.
Like with the women’s tag division, they’ll probably have to earn it by going through the Alpha Academy and Street Profits in a triple threat match with Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode at the announce desk.
