The announcement comes after Bayley & Banks defeated Bliss & Cross on the June 5 episode of SmackDown to win the titles, allowing Bayley to hold both the SmackDown Women's and WWE Women's Tag Team Championship at the same time.

From WWE:

Four teams have held the Women’s Tag Team Championships, and three of them will be battling for the gold at WWE Backlash. Bayley & Sasha Banks will defend their newly-won titles against Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross and The IIconics in a loaded Triple Threat Match.

The SmackDown Women’s Champion & The Boss are fresh off reclaiming the titles on SmackDown with a win over Bliss & Cross. After an extended absence from the squared circle, The IIconics have made their intentions clear since their return: They want their titles back.

Will the “role models” use the opportunity as a launching point for a long title reign? Or will a former championship tandem once again claim tag team glory?

Below is the updated card for Backlash, taking place on June 14.

* WWE Championship: Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Bobby Lashley

* WWE Universal Championship Handicap Match: Braun Strowman (c) vs. John Morrison & The Miz
