The main event for the newly titled WrestleMania Backlash was determined on Raw with Drew McIntyre set to once again challenge Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship.

The event will take place on Sunday May 16th from the WWE Thunderdome. It will mark the second time in little over a month that the two have clashed. Their first encounter took place at WrestleMania this past weekend. Lashley picked up the win in the opening match of night one when McIntyre passed out in the Hurt Lock after a distraction from MVP.

The match was confirmed after McIntyre defeated Braun Strowman and Randy Orton in a triple threat match in Raw’s main event that was booked to determine the number one contender to Lashley’s title.

After the match, McIntyre was attacked by what appeared to be two new members of The Hurt Business.
