As previously reported, Samoa Joe returned to WWE TV during last night’s WrestleMania 34 Fallout Episode of RAW in New Orleans. He had been out of action since suffering a right foot injury on the January 8th RAW.
It was also reported that Samoa Joe confronted Roman Reigns during last night’s show and teased a possible match for the upcoming WWE Backlash PPV, which will now be a dual-branded PPV. It looks like the Samoa Joe vs. Roman Reigns Match could be the main event for the red brand that night. This match will come 9 days after Roman Reigns faces WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar in a Steel Cage Match at the Greatest Royal Rumble Event from Saudi Arabia. It is possible that Roman Reigns enters the Backlash Match with the WWE Universal Title but there is no news yet about Lesnar dropping the title.
WWE Backlash will be taking place on May 6th from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Below is the updated card for next month’s WWE Backlash PPV:
WWE Intercontinental Title Match
– Seth Rollins (c) vs. The Miz
– Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe
