The Mysterios make history at WrestleMania Backlash!

This one will be a pleasant shock. Rey Mysterio and his son, Dominik Mysterio, have been behind the SmackDown Tag Team Titles for quite sometime now. We believe The Mysterios will finally win the titles at WrestleMania Backlash. This will be a historic win as they would become the first father-son duo to hold Tag Team gold.

Alexa Bliss and Lilly make their presence felt

Alexa Bliss introduced the world to Lilly a few ago weeks. Since then, she has been pretty vocal and has revealed that the Raw Women’s roster is on notice.

Last week on Raw, Alexa Bliss was ringside during the Six-Woman Tag Team Match. We think she will make her presence felt during the Raw Women’s Championship match and possibly cost Charlotte, igniting a feud between the two.

Drew McIntyre takes the pin at WrestleMania Backlash

Three behemoths will clash for the WWE Championship in less than 24 hours. Our guess is the ‘All-Mighty WWE Champion’ retains by pinning former champion, Drew McIntyre.

This would mark the end of McIntyre and Lashley’s feud and would allow Lashley to continue a one-on-one program with Braun Strowman.

Bianca Belair outsmarts Bayley

Bayley has been treating Bianca Belair like a rookie despite her winning the SmackDown Women’s Title in the main event of WrestleMania 37. Our guess is the ‘EST of WWE‘ humbles the ‘Role Model’ quicker than anticipated. This would be the perfect way to write the first chapter of their story as Bayley is the ‘sore loser’ heel right now.

Jimmy Uso costs Roman Reigns the Universal Championship

The family drama of the Anoa’i Family is one of the best storylines on SmackDown. We saw how well it was received when done with Reigns and Jey Uso late last year.

Now, the same magic can be repeated with Jimmy back in the fray. If WWE decides to upset and create a huge moment, then Jimmy Uso could very well cost Roman his title against Cesaro.

In this way, Cesaro wins the World Title he rightfully deserves, and even the ‘Tribal Chief’ does not lose clean. In fact, Roman could settle the score with Jimmy by making him acknowledge him and then come back to reclaim his title. Let’s see what happens at WrestleMania Backlash!
