Universal Title Handicap Match Set For WWE Backlash 2020

Universal Co-Champions, hey hey, ho ho!

Miz Morrison Strowman

Universal Champion Braun Strowman will defend his title against both The Miz and John Morrison in a handicap match at the upcoming Backlash PPV.

Strowman appeared as a guest on Miz TV to kick of last night's edition of the blue show and found himself going one-on-one with the host soon after.

After Strowman put away the former WWE Champion, Morrison picked up a mic and challenged the 'Monster Among Men' to a handicap title match at the June 14 event. Strowman accepted and the match now joins Randy Orton and Edge's 'Greatest Wrestling Match Ever' and the WWE Championship encounter between Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley on the card.

This will technically be Morrison's first world title match since returning to WWE last year, with his last world title conetst in the company coming way back in 2011 at the Extreme Rules PPV Vs John Cena and his partner in the upcoming handicap bout The Miz.

Elsewhere on SmackDown, Otis and Mandy Rose were defeated by Sonia Deville and Dolph Ziggler, Jeff Hardy and AJ Styles qualified for the semi finals of the Intercontinental Championship Tournament and NXT Women's Champion Charlotte Flair was beaten by SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley.
