    The Usos vs. New Day for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship

    Joey:

    New Day returning and The Usos being great heels each helped the Smackdown tag division finally get back on track. The likely American Alpha vs. Fashion Police secondary feud should be good as well. I don’t think WWE can take the titles off The Usos just yet. They are finally clicking as heels. I do think New Day wins the belts by Summerslam, but MITB will be Day One Is H.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Usos win.

    Tim:

    I love WWE right now. It’s running on all cylinders like a finely tuned car. When it comes to The Usos what more can be said about them? They’re the best in the world hands down. The New Day have returned and are also the best in the world too. What happens when these two teams clash will undoubtedly result in a match talked about for decades to come. Needless to say, I am ecstatic about this one.

    Interest Level: 10/10
    Prediction: The New Day wins.

    Tom:

    The  Smackdown tag division has stood out to me for the past month or two because it was probably the one part of the show post-brand split that never quite caught on. I think The Usos are very good in their current roles and The New Day going away for a little while was definitely the right move, as it feels nice to see them back again.

    HOWEVER, my main concern is that The Fashion Police are not involved in this match, and I very badly need for them to stay as a prominent part of the tag scene. I will never get tired of their antics and I will always love them. Feel free to screenshot this if you think you’ll ever be able to use it against me because guess what: not gonna happen.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: The Usos win and I will love Breezango 4-ever.

    Orin:

    I’m a big fan of The Usos as disgruntled men in streetwear who may run a prison. Jimmy and Jey have been placed in charge of something called the Uso Penitentiary––some kind of correctional institution that they’re constantly inviting the New Day to visit. They love their new jobs as angry prison guards! Both teams will deliver some sassy one-liners and sick burns and The Usos will retain. Back to jail for you, New Day.

    Interest Level: /10
    Prediction: Usos win

    WWE Backlash Preview and Predictions

    Jinder Mahal is main eventing this show

    Giving their thoughts and predictions on what to expect from the PPV are members of the site @JoeyOnEarth, @TimWelcomed and @TomBlargh.

    Tye Dillinger vs. Aiden English on the kick-off

    Joey:

    I like Aiden English a lot and would like to see him get a genuine push. Tye Dillinger already seems like “just a guy” at this point. Aside from liking the number 10, there is not too much to him as a character. I think this match will just be a basic pre-show bout to get the fans loud with the TEN chants.

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Tye Dillinger wins.

    Tim:

    I enjoy the Aiden English character and I hope they continue on with it. Tye Dillinger is pretty one note as a character so hopefully they flesh him out more soon. I don’t really have any feelings towards this match and that is a big problem with a lot of main roster stuff right now.

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Tye Dillinger wins.

    Tom:

    I like these guys, though I worry for both of them. Dillinger is in danger of slipping into the “nice young man with almost zero discernible personality traits” role that Apollo Crews had on Smackdown for about a year, whereas Aiden English has a weird gimmick that I love but seems like it might keep him off the card more often than not. I want them both to do well! Anyway, this should be a neat little thing. It’s interesting to see English get used to being a singles guy again.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Tye Dillinger wins.

    Luke Harper vs. Erick Rowan

    Joey:

    I legitimately forgot Luke Harper was still on Smackdown and he was probably my favorite thing on the show just a few months ago. Erick Rowan usually does nothing for me, but I am fond of his new bit popping balloons and laughing. Maybe we’ll see some balloons here? I want Luke to win here obviously. I just don’t see it happening. My prediction is Vince saw the Rowan balloon segment and loved it.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Erick Rowan wins.

    Tim:

    Here’s a match with a story behind it! Unfortunately, I feel like it ran its course forever ago and that Luke Harper should be on to grander things. They have yet to make me feel anything about Erick Rowan. I don’t have high hopes for the actual match either. I bet Harper even loses here!

    Interest Level: 1/10
    Prediction: Erick Rowan wins.

    Tom:

    Poor Luke Harper, he just can’t get out of the Wyatts hole he’s stuck in. I always hope he’ll be allowed to move onto bigger and better things because he’s a unique performer and deserves to be showcased in more high profile matches, but he’s in a weird spot right now. I’d love to see him have a decent feud with the likes of Zayn, Owens or Nakamura, so hopefully this is a stepping stone to that.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Luke Harper wins.

    The Usos vs. Breezango for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship

    Joey:

    Hot take: I don’t care much for Breezango.

    Common take: The Usos are good as heels.

    I don’t really have any thoughts on this match aside from realizing just how weak the Smackdown tag division is until New Day arrives.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: The Usos win.

    Tim:

    The Fashion Police are a decently funny time by WWE’s standards but it’s not something that will keep my attention for long. They only stand out because the bar for humor on WWE TV is so low. I think Breeze can show signs of being a talented wrestler. The Usos heel turn made them interesting again for a little bit but I’m back to not caring about them. The tag division is in a real bad state but might as well put it on Breezango so them and The New Day can do some wacky LOL-worthy jokes when they come back and go for the titles.

    Interest Level: 2/10
    Prediction: Breezango win.

    Tom:

    YES. OKAY. LET’S DO THIS. I love The Fashion Police and I’ve enjoyed The Usos enormously since their heel turn. I’m very excited for this match as I think Fandango and Breeze are both very underrated as actual wrestlers who wrestle, in addition to being great characters, so I think it could be a lot of fun!

    Interest Level: 9/10
    Prediction: Breezango wins.
