Vince McMahon apparently sees Randy Orton as the "Roman Reigns of Smackdown Live". First of all, Randy Orton has been around longer and has many more titles than Reigns. Secondly, Randy is already pretty much a legend of WWE. Given Vince's comment, I believe I can safely and correctly predict the main event for Backlash. So, my Backlash predictions:

In the kickoff match, Tye Dillinger will beat Aiden English. I'm glad they didn't get rid of or forget about English after the firing of his former partner. I don't see him beating "The Perfect 10", however.

Main card:
Luke Harper v Erik Rowan. Since WWE has pretty much stalled Harper's push, I'm picking Rowan. That's it. No other reason. Baron Corbin will likely defeat Sami Zayn. Although, I'd like a little fourway feud for the U.S. Championship between Sami, Baron, Styles and Owens. Not sure if it happens but what a match that would be! SummerSlam, anyone?

Naomi, Charlotte and Becky will likely implode vs The Welcoming Committee. At least that's what they're teasing. And that's what I'm picking. The Usos retain the tag titles against Breezango.

Kevin Owens retains the U.S title against AJ Styles. This match will be the best of the night, most likely. I think this is just the beginning for these two.

Shinsuke Nakamura and Dolph Ziggler could be a masterpiece. Obviously Nakamura is winning. It's his first match on the main roster. No way he loses. It'll be a good one, though. Randy Orton will retain the WWE Championship after a "valiant effort" by Jinder Mahal. They'll probably even drop the old dependable "he'll have other chances"(not likely) and "he'll be champion someday( again, not likely).

So there you have it: my sure to be wrong Backlash preview. Sit back and enjoy the show. Most likely, I'll be wathing with my laptop or Kindle volume down as I'm watching the Elementary season finale. Multi-tasking.
