WWE Backlash 2017 airs live from Chicago, Illinois this Sunday, May 21st on the WWE Network. It’s the first Smackdown Live exclusive pay-per-view since WrestleMania and the Superstar shake-up. Depending on how you look at it, it’s either a very interesting card or a lackluster one. To me it looks like a show with the potential for a lot of great wrestling right up until the main event. Throw in one of WWE’s most famously vocal live crowds and we could be in for an interesting night.
Here’s your complete WWE Backlash 2017 card, but remember the card is subject to change. They could always add Mojo Rawley Vs. Konnor from The Ascension at the last minute.
WWE Backlash 2017:
- WWE Championship Match: Randy Orton (c) vs. Jinder Mahal
