It's the night before May Day over here, so UK fans will be able to have a late night, and then a lie in.

Seth/Miz and Roman/Samoa are two strong matches to start building the card.

I wouldn't have two similar titles defended on the same dual brand B shows, so because the IC is already booked, I wouldn't bother having Jinder defend the US title.

Look at this way, now you can have a World Title be defended at every PPV with Lesnar keeping the Universal Championship at Mania.

I think they’ll go Nakamura/Styles II to headline this show.

I would be happy with that, but after Smackdown it looks like Daniel Bryan is being hotshot straight to the title picture, so it might be triple threat.
 
Quote U.S. Champion Jinder Mahal is sitting at ringside in a big chair with Sunil Singh beside him. He's here to watch this next match to determine the #1 contender for his U.S. Title.

- Bobby Roode vs. Randy Orton vs. Rusev: Aiden English does Rusev's introduction, and he's at ringside in Rusev's corner. Orton looks for an RKO attempt on Roode early on, but Roode dodges it and Rusev drops Orton. Rusev and Roode go at it in the ring now and Roode hits a blockbuster off the middle rope. Orton comes in and dumps Roode outside, then he goes after Rusev in he ring. Rusev hits a kick to the head of Orton for a two count. Rusev and Orton fight out to ringside, and Orton hits a back suplex on to the announce table. Roode comes over and starts laying into Orton with right hands, then he takes Orton in the ring then hits a flying clothesline off the top. Roode looks for the Glorious DDT, but Orton escapes and they start exchanging strikes. Rusev pulls Orton out to the floor and hits a back suplex of his own on the table on Orton. Back in the ring, Rusev lays into Roode with kicks then hits a splash in the corner. Rusev follows up with a spinning heel kick on Roode, and then leads the crowd in a Rusev Day chant. Rusev hits a big boot then puts Roode in the Accolade. Orton breaks it up, then hits an RKO on Roode for the three count. Orton now has a U.S. Title shot against Jinder at Backlash.

Winner: Randy Orton

- Orton and Mahal have a stare down after the bell, and we see some replays from the match.

 
Both show midcard titles are now on the line. Can't say i'm happy with that.
 
The problem with these dual cards now is pretty much every match will always have a title on the line, which will devalue Night Of Champions.

After 2 straight 5+ hour events in a months time, this needs to be a 4hr show...

That said, these titlez need to be on the card:
Intercontinental
World
Smackdown Womens
RAW Womens

They can coin flip the Tag Titles and not make the wrong choice.  Fill the rest with strong matches but don't over do it.

I think the only titles missing are Universal and SD tag, but we'll likely get an Usos/Bludgeons rematch from GRR on the card anyway.

I’m just hoping this is a standard 3 hours, can’t handle any more 4-5 hour events.

Lesnar is clearly sitting this one out, as I said elsewhere I think he may be gone until Extreme Rules but Money in the Bank is now billed as the fifth big show so maybe he’ll defend there.

Backlash looks a ok card, nothing mind blowing but should be fairly decent.

There was great anticipation before WrestleMania for A.J. Styles vs Shinsuke Nakamura but after it's been seen there's not the same level of excitement for this one. Yet I actually expect this rematch to be better. Usually once two wrestlers get used to facing each other and feel out their moves they build a working chemistry together and produce better matches than their first meetings. In 2003 I thought that the SummerSlam match between Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar was better than their WrestleMania match. Plus matches between The Rock and Stone Cold only got better over the years; there's a billion examples. 

Looking over the card as it stands now there's some good matches and some so so matches. I am actually most looking forward to Roman vs Samoa Joe, A.J. vs Nakamura, and Jeff Hardy vs Randy Orton.  

Speaking as a fan, I hope Charlotte eradicates Carmella.

The GRR rematch of Styles vs Nakamura was an instant upgrade because of the heel dynamic.  Just didn't like the non finish.  This match will be good.

The no DQ stipulation will also add a extra dimension to AJ vs Nakamura, it needs to because after two disappointing matches these two really need to deliver with this one otherwise this so called dream feud will be remembered as a complete failure.

Joe and Roman always produce decent matches so this one should be no exception.

I am almost 100% confident that AJ Styles will win after hitting Nakamura with a low blow.

There are so many heel tactics that can be used there has been excessive focus on that one particular move it really cant finish any other way
