So that was the plan? We are coming up on WrestleMania Backlash which is always in a tough spot. WWE is trying to follow up on WrestleMania while also doing something to get things off on a new foot. That is a rather tricky balancing act and WWE has the card all set up. The show has a bit of an interesting main event, and now we know what WWE was thinking when they set it up.
One of the main events of WrestleMania Backlash will see RKBro/Drew McIntyre vs. the Bloodline. The match was originally a Tag Team Title unification match between RKBro and the Usos but Roman Reigns and McIntyre were added to make it a non-title six man. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the six man tag was always the plan for the match, even with the Tag Team Title match being announced. McIntyre vs. Reigns is still planned for later this year but there is no word on if the Tag Team Title unification match is still planned.
Opinion: This makes me all the more confused, as I’m not sure why WWE would announce one match and then do something completely differently with even lower stakes. If you want to do the six man then just announce it that way rather than dropping things down. I don’t get the logic here, though I do like the idea of saving McIntyre vs. Reigns for a bigger show down the line.
What do you think of the match? How do you see it going? Let us know in the comments below.
