WWE initially introduced that Uncooked Tag Team Champions RK-Bro would face SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos in a title unification match at WrestleMania Backlash.
WWE did an angle on final week’s SmackDown, the place Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre brawled after the contract signing to make the unification match official. Nevertheless, WWE traded him to The Bloodline (Reigns and The Usos) in opposition to McIntyre and RK-Bro in a six-man tag team match. It seems that WWE by no means planned to go forward with the unification match.
Dave Meltzer reported within the newest version of the Wrestling Observer Publication that “the six-man match was always the planned match. There was by no means a plan to do the unification recreation.”
This is able to clarify why Reigns was solely confirmed to headline the present and nobody from WWE confirmed that Reigns would defend the WWE Undisputed Common Title in opposition to McIntyre on the occasion.
As beforehand reported, WWE is saving the large title match between Reigns and McIntyre for one of many upcoming stadium exhibits.
Meltzer added that the concept is for the present to happen in an enviornment and 4 weeks after WrestleMania, “the curiosity degree wasn’t going to be that prime and so they want large matches for the larger exhibits.”
