When does WrestleMania Backlash 2021 start?

For now, let’s take a look at how we believe WrestleMania Backlash will play out this Sunday.

Whether an attempt to capitalize on the WrestleMania brand or to use it as an excuse to host several rematches, this year’s follow-up event was rechristened WrestleMania Backlash.

Several titles will be on the line, including Cesaro’s first proper shot at a world title, Braun Strowman and Drew McIntyre aiming to capture the WWE Championship, Rhea Ripley up against Asuka and Charlotte Flair and more.

Typically, the post-WrestleMania event is either a total waste of time where nothing happens, or it’s WWE’s attempt to change direction from mistakes that happened on The Grandest Stage of Them All.

Is the WWE Universe in for title changes and surprises, or a series of matches that just kill time and lead nowhere new?

Before the show starts, let’s run down a final round of picks for who will walk away victorious from each match.At WrestleMania 37, Rhea Ripley dominated then-champion Asuka to walk out with the title, but she was unable to celebrate for long, as Charlotte Flair reappeared on the scene.

Add in The Empress of Tomorrow’s desire to get her belt back, and the Triple Threat match at WrestleMania Backlash is arguably the most anticipated contest on the card. From a pure wrestling standpoint, these three women should put on an absolute masterclass.

While Ripley and Asuka had a solid bout at The Show of Shows, it ended up being a glorified squash match for the new champion. The WWE Universe should witness Asuka get her fair share of offense in this time, which will help make the three-way battle superior to all previous interactions between these women.

On a card that feels like an afterthought following the most important PPV of the year, Ripley, Asuka and Flair have the chance to not only put on an incredible women’s match but also a bout that could easily steal the show.

Look for The Nightmare to steal a win from The Queen by throwing her out of the ring after a big move and stealing the pin on Asuka.

Bobby Lashley vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Braun Strowman

Despite WWE doing whatever it can to brand this year’s edition of Backlash as WrestleMania Lite, there is no way the company could have booked yet another rematch between Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship.

One way to make this scene more interesting was to add Braun Strowman, but the lackluster booking has continued. To give the whole championship picture a shot in the arm, it’s time for The Monster Among Men to win the belt.

McIntyre’s run with the title helped carry WWE through the pandemic, but Lashley was the dominant heel the company needed to take the championship picture in a different direction. After a relatively short run, it’s time for another shakeup to improve the Raw product.

If WWE wants to make the red brand more enjoyable on a weekly basis and help improve the lagging television ratings, booking Strowman to walk out of WrestleMania Backlash with the strap around his waist is the perfect answer.WrestleMania Backlash is only a few hours away. As WWE’s first pay-per-view since its largest annual event, WrestleMania Backlash will look to set up the trend for storylines heading into the rest of the year. The event features a packed card with several titles on the line, with the possibility of some wrestlers also returning.

The show will be broadcast live around the world with the WWE Championship, Universal title, RAW and SmackDown Women’s titles, and the SmackDown Tag Team Championships all on the line.
