The WWE Backlash 2016 is taking place on Sunday, but changes are still being made. Here’s a list of the latest updates on the event, which will be held at the Richmond Coliseum in Virginia.
The event promises to crown the first WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion. This will be an interesting match that involves not just two contenders, but a motley crew of six wrestlers. The bout is aptly titled the “Six Pack Challenge.” According to Wrestle Zone, the participating wrestlers who will be vying for the crown are Nikki Bella, Becky Lynch, Carmella, Natalya, Alexa Bliss and Naomi.
A SmackDown Tag Team title will also be up for grabs on Sunday. Heath Slater and Rhyno are sitting in the hot seat and will be awaiting their challengers. They will be fighting for the title against the winners of the match between The Usos and The Hype Brothers.
Meanwhile, Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles are already stirring up a heated conflict ahead of their WWE Championship match. On Sept. 6, they met in the ring, and as seen in a video shared by WWE, the pair engaged in a war of words before they finally settle the score on Sunday. Ambrose held his WWE belt over his shoulder, as he taunted his opponent.
AJ Styles did not allow the WWE Champion to intimidate him. He quickly brought up his own achievements. Styles dropped the name of WWE legend John Cena, who he says he defeated cleanly in the same ring that they were standing on.
For the WWE Intercontinental Championship title, current champion The Wiz will be facing a challenge by Dolph Ziggler. Elsewhere, Randy Orton will be clashing against Bray Wyatt.
