It was previously announced that AJ Styles will face WWE Hall of Famer Edge at WrestleMania Backlash. This is a rematch from WrestleMania 38, which saw Edge defeat Styles after a ringside distraction by Priest.
In an update, WWE has now banned Priest from ringside for Sunday’s Edge vs. AJ match at WrestleMania Backlash.
This week’s RAW saw AJ defeat Priest in singles action and per the stipulation, Priest is banned from ringside. After the match, Styles was double teamed until Finn Balor made the save and evened the odds.
The Judgment Day tag team of Edge and Priest have been feuding with Styles since joining forces at WrestleMania. There’s been talk of a female member joining the group, possibly Rhea Ripley, but there’s no word yet on if WWE will save her arrival for WrestleMania Backlash now that Priest is banned from ringside during the bout.
WrestleMania Backlash is scheduled for this Sunday, May 8 from the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island. Below is the updated announced card, along with related clips from RAW:
