WWE WrestleMania Backlash is a very grand event every year and this year is no less. There is a very good lineup of matches that are happening and the title unification match is one of them.

But now it doesn’t seem like it’s happening.

The on-going rivalries

The feud between The Usos and RK-Bro was started by The Usos because they want to be the undisputed tag team champions.  They were the ones who approached RK-bro after their match with Alpha Academy. 

The Street Profits came out and reported the Usos were trying to skip the line before RK-Bro could provide a clear answer. Randy Orton intervened in the disagreement between the two squads, saying he’d rather see them fight than argue. The match took place and The Usos won.


The two teams posed with their championships after the game. The Usos exited, and The Street Profits attacked RK-Bro as he watched them walk up the ramp. The Usos were able to return to the ring and superkick RK-Bro, ending the program with them holding both sets of belts.

On Friday’s SmackDown, Roman Reigns told The Usos that he wanted them to challenge RK-Bro on Raw the following Monday. The next goal would be to unify both sets of titles to create the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship.

If we talk about Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns that rivalry has always been there. Drew always wanted to challenge Roman Reigns for his championship. Also, this is a feud that WWE has delayed for a long time now.

What happened this SmackDown?

On SmackDown, RK-Bro and The Usos were up next for the title unification match contract signing. The two teams exchanged insults, and Riddle admitted that he couldn’t tell The Usos apart.

Randy Orton called Jimmy Uso a b*tch, and a brawl ensued, with The Usos collapsing in opposite corners.

Roman Reigns made his entrance and RK-Bro stopped beating up The Usos to get ready to fight The Tribal Chief but The Usos recovered and snuck up from behind and took them out. Reigns tore up the match contract before the fight ended up being three-on-two.


Drew McIntyre entered the ring to balance the score, as he and Reigns locked gazes in the ring before continuing the brawl. Before Reigns went backstage with his cousins, McIntyre hit a belly-to-belly suplex.


On SmackDown, Paul Heyman approached Adam Pearce backstage and told him that Roman Roman was upset. Heyman wanted Pearce to include McIntyre and Reigns in the WrestleMania Backlash title unification match. 


After a few matches on SmackDown, the six-man tag team match at WrestleMania Backlash was made official. 

Now after seeing this poster we can see that there is no mention of title unification anywhere. The match which was earlier scheduled for Backlash was the title unification match that was changed completely.

We learned that the tag team title unification match at WrestleMania Backlash was officially changed to a six-man tag match.

So is the plan for title unification scraped for Backlash? Atleast with what we are seeing currently it seems so. Let us know what do you feel by dropping your comments below.
