Both are headed for a match at Backlash 2017. Corbin starts warning everybody about his championship pursuits, but he is attacked by Sami Zayn, who was attacked by Corbin two weeks ago on Talking Smack. Jinder Mahal comes out shortly after. Saving his first WWE main roster match for this PPV is a smart move by the company as NXT fans will love it, and those who have never seen him wrestle will be sure to tune in.

Shinsuke Nakamura's feud with Dolph Ziggler has intensified after Ziggler called his foe into the ring. Becky, Charlotte and Naomi vs. He countered everything thrown at him, dispatched the Singh brothers and even landed an RKO on Kevin Owens. Which made for the flawless setup for a main event later in the night.

Ziggler tried to deliver a sneak attack on Nakamura.

Eric Rowan beats Luke Harpar via pinfall After distracting the referee, a poke in the eye of Harpar allowed Rowan to hit his finisher, a swinging powerslam and pick up a surprise victory Breezango beat The Ascension via pinfall With a top rope leg drop by Fandango on Vicktor the number one contender for WWE Smackdown Live Breezango picked up victory before being interrupted by the Champions USOS reminding Breezango about what is in store for them at Backlash in 12 days. A pity then, as nobody told them that you can't intimidate the fashion police.

Breezango defeated The Ascension in a quick matchup to gain momentum for Backlash.

Taped promo - Rusev: Upset that commissioner Shane McMahon had not responded to his demand for a title match, Rusev said he would appear at SmackDown next week because being ignored was even worse than getting turned down.

The Universal Title and the WWE Championship have become hot topics on WWE programming as of late, and WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross noted in his latest blog that he likes the trend of stars being vocal about title shots, and he hopes it continues. Sami Zayn and Baron Corbin have been feuding for a few weeks, but there is no official match scheduled for them to fight it out.

The main event of the night featured Randy Orton, AJ Styles and Sami Zayn squaring off against Jinder Mahal, Kevin Owens, and Baron Corbin. However, Jinder Mahal is the legal man. Mahal takes advantage of Orton's unawareness to pin the WWE Champion after a Cobra Clutch slam.
