A new match has been added to tonight’s WWE Backlash card with the Raw tag titles to be defended by the Street Profits against the Viking Raiders.

The match follows weeks of segments involving the teams on-location for various competitions including basketball, ax throwing, mini-golf, and a decathlon last week.

The Street Profits won the tag titles on March 2nd from Murphy & Seth Rollins and have been feuding with the Viking Raiders for the past month.

Here is the updated card for Backlash, which airs at 7 pm Eastern on the WWE Network:
*Edge vs. Randy Orton (already taped)
*Drew McIntyre vs. Bobby Lashley for the WWE title
*Braun Strowman vs. The Miz & John Morrison in a 2-on-1 handicap match for the Universal title
*Asuka vs. Nia Jax for the Raw women’s title
*Bayley & Sasha Banks vs. Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross vs. The IIconics for the WWE women’s tag titles
*Apollo Crews vs. Andrade for the United States title
*Sheamus vs. Jeff Hardy
*The Street Profits vs. Viking Raiders for the Raw tag titles

You did a months worth of out of arena competitions, the most logical way to wrap up the decathlon is the Raiders challenging for the Titles Sunday. This match means nothing, it wouldn’t have gotten me excited had this been announced Monday or Saturday but now I just feel dread because it’s going to make the show longer. I hope they prove me wrong and have a great match

Probably going to skip this one. Will listen to review and if anything worth watching will go back. More curious about New Japan show tomorrow early morning
