Predictions

Bobby Lashley vs. Braun Strowman vs. Drew McIntyre (WWE Championship)

Bobby Lashley will retain his WWE Championship against two formidable opponents at WrestleMania Backlash. With Strowman on the roster, there are plenty of ways to keep the feud between Lashley and McIntyre in the spotlight on Raw without either man having to finish the other clean.

Winner – Drew McIntyre

Roman Reigns vs. Cesaro (Universal Championship)

Since his return to WWE at SummerSlam last year, Roman Reigns has been unstoppable. It’s difficult to imagine WWE will really award Cesaro the championship. 

However, WWE universe has been waiting years to see if Cesaro can actually have “his time” as a world champion, and now he has a big opportunity where he must compete against the company’s most dominant champion to hit the summit.

Winner – Roman Reigns retains Universal Championship

Bianca Belair vs. Bayley (SmackDown Women’s Championship)

Bianca Belair’s domination on the roster has grown with each passing day since she became the SmackDown Women’s Champion. Also, Bayley held the SmackDown women’s division title for a long time until it was passed to Sasha Banks and then to Belair after Belair defeated Banks at WrestleMania.

Winner: Belair retains Women’s Championship 

Rhea Ripley vs. Asuka vs. Charlotte (Raw Women’s Championship)

At WrestleMania Backlash, Asuka will want to regain her RAW Women’s championship, but she’ll have her job cut out for her. Flair and Asuka have both had a lot of time in the spotlight, and both ladies have a lot of potential ahead of them. The three women competing in the match will give it their all.

Winner: Rhea Ripley retains the title

The Dirty Dawgz vs. The Mysterios (SmackDown Tag Team Championships)

The match’s whole selling point is to see how the Mysterios will become the first father-son tag team champions in WWE history.

Winner: The Mysterios 

Damian Priest vs. The Miz (Lumberjack match)

Since his debut at the Royal Rumble, Damian Priest has been embroiled in a rivalry with The Miz and John Morrison. In this match, Miz doesn’t need to win, but a win for Priest helps cement his status as a true player.

Winner: Damien Priest
