- As noted, WWE Backlash will feature a Six Pack Challenge with Becky Lynch, Nikki Bella, Natalya, Naomi, Carmella and Alexa Bliss, to crown the first-ever SmackDown Women's Champion. This Fallout video from tonight features Becky talking to Charly Caruso about her win over Bliss. Becky also comments on fans chanting her name during the opening segment, saying it blew her away. Becky says that kind of stuff makes her want to work harder. She says she didn't come to WWE to blend in with the crowd, she came to stand out and feels that the new title will really make her stand out.
- As noted, the first-ever WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions will be crowned with the finals of a tournament at the September 11th Backlash pay-per-view, a SmackDown-exclusive event.
Coming out of tonight's SmackDown, teams still in the tournament include American Alpha, The Usos, The Hype Bros. and The Vaudevillains. It also appears that Heath Slater and Rhyno are being added to the tournament and will be in action next week but we don't know who their opponents will be. The Ascension were eliminated on SmackDown by The Usos and Breezango was eliminated by American Alpha.
