Everything you need to know before WWE Backlash!
WWE Backlash is going down on Sunday, May 6 in Newark, New Jersey. 5Dimes’ oddsmakers have worked overtime to get you the opening odds for all of the currently listed matches. The show begins at 8 p.m. ET with a kickoff pre-show at 7 p.m. that will likely have a panel and a match or two.
WWE Backlash Match Odds
- AJ Styles (end of broadcast ruling) +160
- Shinsuke Nakamura (end of broadcast) -210
With a special added stipulation of no disqualification, the WWE Championship tilt is the third match between the two in a four-week span at a major event. Styles held on to the title belt after a double count-out last time promting for the call for a no disqualification match
- Seth Rollins (end of broadcast ruling) -475
- The Miz (end of broadcast ruling) +325
Rollins successfully defended the title at the GRR in a Fatal 4-Way ladder match beating the Miz, Finn Balor and Samoa Joe to retain the title. Miz had previously decided to utilize his rematch clause for Backlash.
Raw Women’s Championship
- Nia Jax (end of broadcast ruling) -750
- Alexa Bliss (end of broadcast ruling) +450
This is the match I am most excited for. The WrestleMania 34 rematch will blow the roof off. Who would be surprised to see Bliss take the title back? She’s held a title belt her entire main roster run.
SmackDown Women’s Championship
- Carmella (end of broadcast ruling) -135
- Charlotte Flair (end of broadcast) -105
The other women’s title fight features Carmella facing Charlotte Flair. The former cashed in the Money in the Bank briefcase while the latter remains on the blue brand.
Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe:
- Roman Reigns (end of broadcast ruling) -600
- Samoa Joe (end of broadcast ruling) +400
This match was finalized before the Greatest Royal Rumble. This could of been a title bout if Reigns had beaten Brock Lesnar for the Universal title belt in a steel cage match in Saudi Arabia. Early rumors are that Lesnar will take this event off, making this bout the top match from the Raw brand.
Daniel Bryan vs. Big Cass
- Daniel Bryan (end of broadcast ruling) -460
- Big Cass (end of broadcast ruling) +320
This match signed after Byran was attacked by in consecutive weeks on SmackDown. Will this match reignite the fued? Or is it a space filler until the WWE is prepared to get Bryan and the Miz going head-to-head for real.
Braun Strowman & Bobby Lashley vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn
- B. Strowman & B.Lashley (end broadcast) -475
- Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn (end broadcast) +325
This match is a head-scratcher. How does it forward the endgame? Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining. Who else is betting that Strowman ragdolls Owens outside the ring again like he has the last two weeks?
