WWE Backlash 2024 Predictions

WWE Backlash 2024 Predictions

WWE heads to Lyon, France for WWE Backlash. Last year, the show was held in Puerto Rico and if it was anything like what it was last year, we're in for a treat!

WWE Backlash 2023 Predictions
Live from Puerto Rico and hosted by Bad Bunny, it is WWE Backlash! Here are my predictions for the show: Non-Title Matches * Seth “Freakin” Rollins vs Omos in a singles match. * Omos doesn’t need the win here, Seth winning this match would elevate him for the World Heavyweight Championship (WHC)

Last year's predictions

There are 5 matches on this card (unless more gets added between when this is published and the event itself) with only 1 match not involving a title.

Non-Title Match

  • Randy Orton & Kevin Owens vs The Bloodline (Solo Sikoa & Tama Tonga) in a tag team match.
    • PREDICTION: Tama Tonga appearing within WWE has already made this difficult to call. 2 evenly matched teams make it difficult to pick. Knowing how things have gone in the past, I wouldn't be surprised if The Bloodline cheats their way to a victory. Bloodline to win!

Title Matches

  • The Kabuki Warriors (Kairi Sane & Asuka) vs Bianca Belair & Jade Cargill in a tag team match for the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship.
    • PREDICTIONS: With Jade Cargill on the team, you know that she ain't losing this match. Easy prediction. Bianca & Jade to win and become new WWE Women's Tag Team Champions.
  • Bayley (C) vs Naomi vs Tiffany Stratton in a Triple Threat for the WWE Women's Championship.
    • PREDICTION: While Bayley got her WrestleMania victory defeating Iyo Sky, I don't see her holding that title for much longer, unless they start putting her in a meaningful storyline. Given that you are going to have Bianca & Jade winning the Women's Tag Team Championships, I would predict that their partner, Naomi, is to win and become champion. Rocket strap the three girls. Keep Bayley strong though by pinning Tiffany. It's just not Tiffy Time yet.
  • Damian Priest (C) vs Jey Uso in a singles match for the World Heavyweight Championship.
    • PREDICTION: Jey Uso won a tournament to determine who would be next in line for the title. I don't think Jey is going to win it, but is going to put on a classic match with Damian. Expect Judgement Day shenanigans. Damian Priest to win and retain!
  • Cody Rhodes (C) vs AJ Styles in a singles match for the Undisputed WWE Championship.
    • PREDICTION: Are you seriously going to bet against Cody? Cody is going to be holding this title until Roman is back, so unfortunately, AJ Styles is going to be the fall guy. (But given how juiced AJ is these days, it is quite unpredictable) Cody to win and retain.

And those are my predictions.
