WWE is set to hold the 2023 edition of the Backlash premium live event in Puerto Rico tonight (May 6).
One of the matches set for the show is a six-man tag team match, with Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and Matt Riddle set to take on the Bloodline.
Typically, when the Bloodline have teamed up in tag matches on premium live events, it has been the Usos tagging with their cousin Roman Reigns.
However, Roman’s slot will be taken up by the Usos’ brother Solo Sikoa instead at Backlash.
This makes the match at Backlash interesting, per Wrestling Stats & Info on Twitter, as it will be only the second time in history where a team of 3 or more siblings have teamed up in a tag team match on a WWE pay-per-view, with no other partners involved.
The first came back at Survivor Series in 1993, when the Hart Family teamed up to face Shawn Michaels and the Knights.
The Bloodline was kept intact in the WWE Draft with all members drafted to SmackDown, despite the Usos being drafted separately to Reigns and Sikoa.
Reigns is being advertised for a match at Night of Champions in Saudi Arabia on May 27, which will be his first match since WrestleMania 39.
The full card for Backlash is as follows:
San Juan Street Fight – Bad Bunny vs. Damian Priest
Cody Rhodes vs. Brock Lesnar
Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens & Matt Riddle vs. Solo Sikoa & The Usos
SmackDown Women’s Championship – Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Zelina Vega
Raw Women’s Championship – Bianca Belair (c) vs. IYO SKY
United States Championship – Austin Theory (c) vs. Bronson Reed vs. Bobby Lashley
Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins vs. Omos
What do The Bloodline and The Hart family have in common?
Only once in @WWE has there been a PPV tag team match that features 3+ siblings (and no other partners). It was Survivor Series 1993; the Harts.
At #WWEBacklash, The @WWEUsos & @WWESoloSikoa join them on this list.
