Now it’s bigger. We are just over two weeks away from WWE’s WrestleMania Backlash pay per view but WWE has not exactly put much on the card. The show was lacking a main event, though the unification match between the Raw and SmackDown Tag Team Champions did seem important. Now we know the show’s main event and it is a little bit different.
This week on WWE SmackDown, Roman Reigns interrupted a contract signing between RKBro and the Usos for the Tag Team Title unification match at WrestleMania Backlash. Drew McIntyre came out and helped fight off Reigns and the Usos. Later, Reigns’ special counsel Paul Heyman told Adam Pearce to make a six man tag for the WrestleMania Backlash rather than the Tag Team Title match. The new match was made later in the show, with no titles being on the line at the moment.
Opinion: I’m not entirely sure I get the thinking here but this certainly seems to be a match that takes away a lot of the importance. Maybe this leads to a bigger match down the line, but on the surface this looks to be a match that serves little purpose aside from being a filler pay per view main event. There is a chance that some stakes could be added, but otherwise this is not looking like a great main event.
What do you think of the change? How do you see the match going? Let us know in the comments below.
