WWE Backlash 2017

When is WWE Backlash 2017?

WWE Backlash 2017 is being broadcast live from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois on Sunday, May 21. It gets underway from 8pm local time and from 1am in the UK (Monday morning).

What is the main event?

WWE Champion Randy Orton will put his title on the line against Jinder Mahal, a man who has risen from relative obscurity to earn a shot at the gold.

Mahal stole Randy's title belt last month, then hit Orton with it to help Bray Wyatt defeat him in a bizarre House of Horrors match at the Raw pay-per-view Payback.

Calling on the support of his henchmen The Singh Brothers (Sunil and Samir Singh), could the musclebound challenger pull off an almighty upset?

What about the women's title?

SmackDown's Women's Championship will not be defended this time around, but the champion Naomi will be in action in a six-woman tag team match.

She has teamed with SmackDown newcomer Charlotte Flair and fan favourite Becky Lynch against nefarious trio The Welcoming Committee.

Natalya, Carmella and Tamina have been making life hell for Naomi and co, especially with Carmella's boyfriend James Ellsworth meddling in Becky's business.

What are the other key matches on the card?

The big one is plain to call - it's the main roster in-ring debut of the former NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura versus former world champion Dolph Ziggler.

The Japanese megastar is like no other performer on the planet - an extraordinary showman with tremendous wrestling ability - while Dolph should be the perfect foil.

Another mouthwatering clash is the battle between United States Champion Kevin Owens - Raw's MVP in 2016 - and the man who built SmackDown Live, AJ Styles.

Two former 'brothers' collide when Luke Harper, one of the most talented big men in the company, faces his ex-stablemate in the Wyatt Family, Erick Rowan.

The underdog from the underground Sami Zayn, who rarely fails to deliver in the ring, tries to survive the physical test provided by the bruising Baron Corbin.
