WWE issued the following:
WWE Champion Bobby Lashley vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Braun Strowman
At WrestleMania Backlash, WWE Champion Bobby Lashley will look to carry The All Mighty Era forward but will have to overcome the presence of both Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman.
The ongoing chase for the WWE Title did not end at WrestleMania but rather grew more intense one night after The Showcase of the Immortals when three of Raw’s top competitors stepped into the spotlight to stake their claim as Lashley’s next opponent for the most prestigious title in WWE. In addition to a challenge from McIntyre, who was distracted by MVP at The Show of Shows, Strowman emerged in pursuit of the gold two nights after conquering Shane McMahon inside a Steel Cage Match. After emerging from the darkness with a victory over The Fiend, Orton was also ready to refocus on the WWE Title.
In a matchup established by WWE Official Adam Pearce, The Scottish Warrior overcame The Viper and The Monster Among Men in a Triple Threat Match to earn the right to once again go to war against The All Mighty in an epic WrestleMania WWE Championship Rematch. Two weeks later, Strowman continued his pursuit of a title opportunity and won his clash with McIntyre to add a whole new dimension to the WWE Championship encounter.
Don’t miss WrestleMania Backlash, Sunday, May 16, beginning at 7 ET/4 PT, exclusively on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network everywhere else.
