Title unification match for WWE WrestleMania Backlash now six-man tag

Roman Reigns will team with the Usos to face Drew McIntyre and RK-Bro.

A match originally set to unify the Raw and SmackDown Tag Team titles at WWE WrestleMania Backlash has now been changed to a six-man tag match.

After Drew McIntyre aided RK-Bro in laying out Roman Reigns and The Usos on tonight’s SmackDown, Paul Heyman confronted official Adam Pearce backstage and asked for a six-man tag team match at WrestleMania Backlash. Pearce rejected the idea, saying there was already a tag team title unification match. Heyman threatened to go to the WWE Board of Directors if he didn’t comply. The new match was later made official.

Tonight’s show had a contract signing between The Usos and RK-Bro for WrestleMania Backlash. The two teams soon began to brawl, with Roman Reigns coming out soon after. The distraction allowed The Usos to lay out RK-Bro. Reigns entered the ring, ripped up the contract for the title unification match and stuffed it down Riddle's throat. McIntyre then came out and took out all three members of The Bloodline.

Here is the current lineup for WrestleMania Backlash, which will take place on May 8:

  • Drew McIntyre & RK-Bro (Randy Orton and Riddle) vs. Roman Reigns & The Usos in a six-man tag team match
  • AJ Styles vs. Edge
  • Omos vs. Bobby Lashley
  • Charlotte Flair vs. Ronda Rousey in an I Quit match for the SmackDown Women’s title
  • Cody Rhodes vs. Seth Rollins
  • Happy Corbin vs. Madcap Moss
