Carmella, Tamina and Natalya vs Becky Lynch, Charlotte and Naomi Set for WWE Backlash (May, 9th 2017)

Tonight WWE delivered their final show in London for the first leg of their 2017 European Tour tonight, as the Smackdown Roster presented another action packed episode, and with it came the confirmation of what exactly the Women of Smackdown will be doing at the brands upcoming Backlash Pay Per View. While her championship isn’t on the line, Smackdown Women’s Champion Naomi will be joining Smackdowns Favorite Lasskicker Becky Lynch and the rosters recent acquisition Charlotte to battle the newly formed “Welcoming Committee” Carmella, Natalya and the recently returned Tamina Snuka.

The seeds began to be planted in the moment of the Superstar Shake Up, as Smackdown acquired 4x RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte to be a part of their roster as part of the mini draft. Charlotte’s quick ascension into the title picture angered many of the divisions tenured competitors, most clearly Natalya, Carmella and Tamina, who went out of their way to ruin Charlotte’s One Championship Opportunity Last Month by attacking the contender and reigning champion Naomi. The Disdain shown by the Queen of Harts and her fellow villainous Smackdown Competitors has lead to Naomi finding an alliance in Becky Lynch, who had tricked Natalya and Co into thinking they had forged an alliance with her before revealing her true intentions were to stand by her fellow heroes, though suffering a severe beat down in the process. While Charlotte is wholly intent on standing alone and focusing on the championship, she also has become an enemy of Natalya and her comrades, sharing history with Natalya mostly, and all these facts gathered together have lead to Naomi, Becky and Charlotte agreeing to combat the unified force at Backlash.

WWE Backlash, the first Smackdown Branded Pay Per View since WrestleMania 33, comes to you live on the WWE Network and on Sky Sports Box Office at 1am UK Time on Sunday May 21st/Mon 22nd, featuring the battle of the two female units plus Dolph Ziggler vs Shinsuke Nakamura, AJ Styles vs Kevin Owens for the United States Championship and more.
