AJ says that Omos wrecked them at Wrestlemania and he will do it again tonight. Before they get their tag title match tonight, AJ has a question for the WWE Universe. Did you miss us?

They had better things to do than throw tomatoes like the New Day. Officially, AJ Styles is a grand slam champion.
It only took me five years to do it. New Day has been through a lot and he does not want to make them jealous. They are here for one reason… The New Day interrupt and they make their way onto the stage.

They continue mocking the champs for having no respect for the tag team division and taking time off. Woods and Kofi get serious as they start walking to the ring. Kofi says there’s a reason they’re 11-time tag team champions, and that is because every time they get knocked down, they pick themselves up, dust off and get back in the ring to win their gold back. Every single time. Kofi says AJ can take shots and jabs at their career if he wants, he goes on about also being a top singles champion because of The New Day’s influence. Kofi says taking time off is not how The New Day rolls, bro. Omos has heard enough. He’s heard enough of these morons and it seems like he didn’t knock enough sense into them at WrestleMania but they won’t be able to laugh or walk after he’s done with them tonight. Omos tells them to come to the ring and get this work. Woods interrupts and goes on about how they are about to become 12-time champions.

In the Arena:
We are back and Sonya Deville and Charlotte Flair are in the ring. Sonya says she has let Charlotte make a proposal.
Charlotte says she was a little taken back when she heard Asuka and Rhea were given another title match without her getting a chance. She ended Asuka’s two year streak. I put Rhea Ripley on the map when I beat her last year at Wrestlemania. Do I have to remind you that Rhea took my spot at Wrestlemania. I have made mistakes and learned the error of my ways. I am happy to be reinstated. You can’t say if I am added to Backlash, it won’t be a better pay per view. They can take the division only so far. I can take it farther. I am the most important influencer of the women’s division. I influence and they follow. I say, they do.
Charlotte says she gave Sonya the opportunity to be an authority and you made the courageous decision to lift the suspension. Love me or hate me, the division needs me. The WWE Universe needs me. She says she is happy to oblige and give me a match of my worth. She tells Sonya to do the right thing and add her to the match at Backlash. She tells Sonya to ‘Be Fair to Flair’.

Rhea Ripley’s music plays and she comes out and says that she has put up a lot coming out of this spoiled brat’s mouth, but this is pure crap. There is a reason why Charlotte was not in the match at Wrestlemania. That is the reason why nobody wants to see her in her rematch. Rhea says nobody likes Charlotte.

Rhea says that she should have known that when Sonya brought back Charlotte that this would happen.
Asuka’s music plays and she makes her way to the ring.
Asuka says this is crap and she calls Charlotte a whiny baby. She says she can beat Rhea because she is ready to become the Raw Women’s Champion. Charlotte says that is why no one compares to her. You get thrown one curve ball and you lose your minds. Charlotte says Rhea is walking into Backlash with the title, but I will walk out as the champion.
