Dean Ambrose makes his second title defense. Since his first defense against Dolph Ziggler at WWE Summerslam, Ambrose has only wrestled on TV once. He lost because AJ Styles struck his opponent.

The tag-team tournament will be ending at WWE Backlash. The Usos face The Hype Bros (Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley) in order to determine who will take the injured American Alpha's (Chad Gable and Jason Jordan) spot in the final. The team of Heath Slater and Rhyno are already in the finals. Heath Slater teamed with Rhyno because he was offered a Smackdown contract if he could win the tag-team tournament. Without the contract Slater will be in financial ruin.
