BIG SMACKDOWN MATCH ADDED TO MSG, BACKLASH PRESALE PASSWORD, JOHNNY WRESTLING WALKS AWAY AND MORE

By Dave Scherer on 2018-02-21 21:20:00

The pre-sale password for the 5/6 Backlash PPV is: NEWARK.  The PPV takes place at The Prudential Center in Newark, NJ and, as announced last week, will now be a co-branded PPV.

A "Smackdown Live special attraction" match between Shinsuke Nakamura and AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn is being advertised for the WWE show in MSG on 3/16. This will be the second time that Nakamura, Styles and Owens have been added as Smackdown talent to a RAW-branded MSG show. It will be Zayn's first appearance at MSG as a main roster talent. He appeared in 2014 while being NXT champion wrestling against Adrian Neville. Owens was advertised for a World of Wheels appearance in Winnipeg, Manitoba on the same day, which has since been cancelled.  The four of them will fly out to Odessa, TX and the RAW crew will fly out to Tulsa, OK for shows the next day. ...

After tonight's excellent NXT main event, WWE posted the following:
