Title Match Added To WWE Backlash

WWE has announced a new title match for the June 14 Backlash pay-per-view which comes our way on the WWE Network this coming Sunday.

The Women’s Tag Team Championship will be on the line as new two-time champs Bayley & Sasha Banks defend in a three-way against both the IIconics and Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross.

Bayley & Banks defeated Bliss & Cross for the straps on this past Friday’s episode of SmackDown.

Four teams have held the Women’s Tag Team Championships, and three of them will be battling for the gold at WWE Backlash. Bayley & Sasha Banks will defend their newly-won titles against Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross and The IIconics in a loaded Triple Threat Match.

The SmackDown Women’s Champion & The Boss are fresh off reclaiming the titles on SmackDown with a win over Bliss & Cross. After an extended absence from the squared circle, The IIconics have made their intentions clear since their return: They want their titles back.

Will the “role models” use the opportunity as a launching point for a long title reign? Or will a former championship tandem once again claim tag team glory?

Don’t miss WWE Backlash, streaming on the award-winning WWE Network, Sunday, June 14, at 7 ET/4 PT!

  • Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Bobby Lashley – WWE Championship
