WWE Backlash Women’s Six-Pak Title Match Nikki Bella, Becky Lynch, Carmella, Natalya and Alexa Bliss 11th Sept 2016
Two fresh titles were also introduced to Smackdown, with Bryan and Shane McMahon unveiling their show’s Women’s and Tag Team straps.
Nikki Bella, Becky Lynch, Carmella, Naomi, Natalya and Alexa Bliss will compete for the Women’s Title in a Six-Pack Challenge at Backlash, though hostilities began early on Smackdown.
The Usos progressed to the semi-finals with a victory over The Ascension, while American Alpha duo Jason Jordan and Chad Gable defeated Breezing with Grand Amplitude.
Slater also convinced Rhyno to become his partner and will now be awarded a Smackdown contract if he and The Man Beast, who will be in action together next week, win the twin titles at Backlash.
Lynch submitted Bliss with the Dis-arm-her, while Bella – making her return to Smackdown following neck surgery – was blindsided by Carmella before their match could officially start.
The Tag Team Championships will be awarded at Backlash, too, following the finals of a tournament in which The Usos, American Alpha, and the currently unassigned Heath Slater are part of.
