United States title match official for WWE Backlash

A United States title match has been added to Backlash.

Jeff Hardy will defend the title against Randy Orton, as it was confirmed tonight during SmackDown. Orton and Hardy teamed up to defeat Shelton Benjamin and The Miz tonight when Hardy pinned Benjamin with the swanton bomb. Immediately after the match, Orton planted Hardy with the RKO, a clear indicator that he was interested in regaining the title.

Orton had been interested in challenging Jeff Hardy since he switched to SmackDown in the SuperStar Shakeup. He tried to challenge Hardy his first night in, but was interrupted by Shelton Benjamin. The two squared off last week, with Benjamin picking up the win.

The full card as of this writing is as follows;

  • AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE title
  • Seth Rollins vs. The Miz for the Intercontinental title
  • Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton for the United States title
  • Nia Jax vs. Alexa Bliss for the Raw women’s title
  • Carmella vs. Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown women's title
  • Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe
  • Daniel Bryan vs. Big Cass 
  • Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley vs. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn
