The Street Profits and The Viking Raiders are finally set to face off with the Raw Tag Team titles on the line.

Ahead of tonight's Backlash pay-per-view, WWE announced that The Street Profits defending their Raw Tag Team titles against The Viking Raiders has been added to the show's card. The teams have recently been featured in an "anything you can do, we can do better" series of non-wrestling competitions.

The Street Profits and Viking Raiders faced each other in basketball, axe throwing, golf, and bowling. They were tied at the end of those events, leading into a decathlon on last Monday's episode of Raw. But that also ended in a 5-5 tie.

The program between the teams began when The Viking Raiders cut a promo in April saying that The Street Profits are a great team, but they've only risen to the top when The Viking Raiders aren't around. The Viking Raiders also defeated The Street Profits in a non-title match on the May 4 episode of Raw.

The Street Profits have been Raw Tag Team Champions since winning the titles from Seth Rollins & Murphy in March.

Here's the updated card for Backlash:

  • Edge vs. Randy Orton
  • WWE Champion Drew McIntyre defending against Bobby Lashley
  • Raw Women's Champion Asuka defending against Nia Jax
  • Universal Champion Braun Strowman defending against The Miz & John Morrison in a handicap match
  • Women's Tag Team Champions Bayley & Sasha Banks defending against Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross and The IIconics in a triple threat match
  • Raw Tag Team Champions The Street Profits defending against The Viking Raiders
  • United States Champion Apollo Crews defending against Andrade
  • Jeff Hardy vs. Sheamus
