I'd change a confirmed match and a speculated one at least there.

Corbin vs Zayn
Usos (c) vs Breezango
Charlotte vs Tamina w/Carmella and James Ellesworth
Dolph Ziggler vs Shinsuke Nakamura
Naomi (c) vs Natalya
Kevin Owens (c) vs AJ Styles
Randy Orton (c) Jinder Mahal

They're waiting on Becky to endorse Charlotte in order to make her a full fledged face, so a good debut win for Tamina by outside interference works out for all parties.

I'm confident Jericho will be champion until Tuesday at the latest. Could be wrong, but I'm confident.

They need to build Naomi up because at the moment Becky/Charlotte are the only draws in the women's division.

And Styles/Owens should main event but that would embarrass the WWE title, so Orton's big win will close the show. He can then move on to a feud with Styles, followed by Jericho and then Owens (where I think he'll probably lose it)

I wanted Becky/Bliss in a TLC match back at TLC :emoji_slight_frown:

Though that said, I do think we'll see a female TLC match this year. Hopefully Becky vs Asuka. (vs Charlotte)

I like this card, so I'm going to use it instead of the tiny card we have right now

Corbin vs Zayn - Zayn because he needs it more
Usos (c) vs Breezango - Breezango because... They're just great
Charlotte vs Tamina w/Carmella and James Ellesworth - Tamina via shenaigans because she just needs it more
Dolph Ziggler vs Shinsuke Nakamura - Shinsuke, I'm always bias against Dolph
Naomi (c) vs Natalya - Naomi, can't have her lose already
Kevin Owens vs AJ Styles vs Chris Jericho (c) - Owen pins Jericho, injures him, sends him on tour
Randy Orton (c) Jinder Mahal - Jinder Mahal, I know it probably won't happen, but how crazy would it be if it did?

I agree with most of what you guys have said above.

I have something to add, though: Naomi, Becky & Charlotte vs Tamina, Natalya & Carmella will probably end up happening given what happened on SD last night.

Unless their goal is to book that match for next week and then at Backlash, we get separate singles matches like Charlotte vs Tamina, Naomi vs Natalya and Becky vs Carmella.

Also, I wouldn't be surprised if they booked American Alpha vs The Colons on the pre-show.

That's what is most likely to happen...even though I'd rather see Naomi defend the title
and win cleanly...even if it was against Charlotte.

I've read rumors of a possible Becky heel turn...which may happen at Backlash during
the predicted 6 women tag match..but again...its just rumors.

I think a Becky heel turn would really freshen her up...but...SmackDown just don't have
the numbers in their division to realistically do it and keep the face/heel dynamic balanced.

That's why Sasha hasn't turned yet...and most likely won't now Little Miss Bliss is sitting
on top of the RAW division.

I've also heard Lana will be a heel...so SmackDown will most likely keep Becky a face
for the time being.

Unless their goal is to book that match for next week and then at Backlash, we get separate singles matches like Charlotte vs Tamina, Naomi vs Natalya and Becky vs Carmella.
I'd rather see that...I'm really curious to see Tamina wrestle...

Who knows may-be Lana will re-debut at Backlash and help the heel team win...

The 6 woman tag does seem likely now, with Charlotte accidentally hitting Becky and Becky then being pinned for the loss.

Charlotte doesn't officially turn face until Becky says so. That's what the WWE have set up and it's also why the fans are chanting for Becky whenever Charlotte/Naomi get beat up. Thing is, if Charlotte turns face you instantly lose your top drawer match right now. While Natalya and Naomi are being build up to top level, throw Becky against Charlotte because of a lot of trust. Give Becky the win, then have the heels attack Charlotte afterwards. Becky the helps out, shakes her hand, job done.

At the same time, Naomi can work a storyline against all 3 heels at once, ultimately succumbing to Natalya and losing her title while Becky and Charlotte are off elsewhere. Everybody wins.

Six-Woman Tag-Team Match
- Naomi, Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch vs. Natalya, Carmella & Tamina Snuka
Six-woman tag team match added to Backlash

Okay...thoughts:
~ I think its disappointing Naomi isn't defending the title at Backlash...
~ I hate the fact that this 6 woman tag match is basically set up so Ellsworth can cost "Team NBC" the match...
~ While I want Becky to turn heel and get nasty...I just don't know how I feel about it now Charlotte is on SmackDown...
~ I guess while I like change...I'd much rather have Becky & Charlotte both be heels together...but...that wouldn't work...
~ I'm also incredibly impatient...I just Charlotte vs. Becky A.S.A.P...
~ I think SmackDown have really complicated this by turning Charlotte face and having Tamina be a heel...
it would have made much more sense if it was the other way round.
~ While I like Naomi...I'm not "buying" her as a champion...

More so than the card, I'm really wondering how... WWE loves to have a big moment close the show, and Smackdown's shows have really been well known the one match/moment that sticks with you on otherwise forgettable shows...

I'm wondering if this show will end on a big swerve of some sort.

I'm calling it right now, in the middle of Jinder V.S Randy, Vince announces anouther Shake up. Roman comes, out says "This match is full off suffering sukatash son!" Then Vince hands him a money in the bank briefcase. Cash in. SPEAR. New champion. Then he goes to hug the make a wish kid. But wait he has a replica belt. Roman says "Man that belts full of suffering sukatash SON!" SPEAR. Holds both belts up to a HUGE pop. BUT WAIT. Kalisto Comes out, challenges Roman to a lucha thing. Head that angle into wrestle-mania for a once in a lifetime match, with Undertaker as special guest referee, and Floyd Mayweater as enforcer in a German Shepard on a pole dumpster match with a gangrel. Just put everyone else in the Andre the Giant Battle Royal, whitch Shaq wins of course

Also, HOW COULD YOU IGNORE THE MOST IMPORTANT MATCH ON THE CARD, ENGLISH VS
DILLINGER. MELTZER GUNNA GIVE IT ALL OF THE STARS But for real here are my predictions

Tye beats the Mistro of Mayhem The Picasso of Pain Aidan English
Clown Erik Beats Mr.Fuck Dollar Shave Club Luke Harper
Faces beat the welcoming committee
Usos Beat Breezango (Although I really am happy either way. Call me dumb but Both of these teams are miles better than Alpha)
Dolph Beats Shinsuke_NO HE FUCKIN DOSENT, Shinsuke has to win, why? Attacks bald head with chop combo Becuase he's making his debut' that simple
Barron beats Sami (Its gunna kill Sami, but I don't see him getting a roll up win)
Kevin Beats AJ, via exploiting the knee
Jinder beats Randy, but I think it will be via a interference from Rusev, witch could lead to a triple threat, witch hopefully Rusev can win. I know that would make Jinder a transitional champ, Randy going into MITB in his hometown as a challenger looking regain something he was cheated out of then a dominant champ!
