Here are the few matches confirmed at WWE Backlash.
Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Bobby Lashley
The match was possible after Montel Vontavious Porter or MVP questioned Bobby Lashley and asked him when he will show his true self. Lashley not had a shot at championship since 2007. Lashley then joined forces with MVP. Later next week, McIntyre challenged Lashley for the match, and WWE scheduled a Championship match at Backlash.
Raw Women's Championship - Asuka (c) vs. Nia Jax
Asuka will face Jax for the title. Jax emerged the winner in a triple threat match held at Raw to become the No 1 contender to challenge Asuka. Jax defeated NXT women's champion Charlotte Flair and Natalya to challenge Asuka for the title at BackLash.
Universal Championship - Braun Strowman (c) vs. The Miz and John Morrison
After retaining the Universal Championship at Money in the Bank, Braun Strowman defeated The Miz and John Morrison at Smackdown next week. But Strowman teamed up with Otis for the win, and it left Morrison unhappy as he and The Miz have made fun of Otis before. Soon, Morrison challenged Strowman to defend his title against him and The Miz. WWE made the match official at Backlash.
