Braun Strowman Will Defend The Universal Championship In A Handicap Match At BACKLASH

For the first time ever, the Universal Championship will be defended in a handicap match when Braun Strowman puts his title on the line against both The Miz and John Morrison at the upcoming Backlash PPV.

WWE has confirmed that Braun Strowman will put the Universal Championship on the line against both The Miz and John Morrison in a handicap match at Backlash.

Last night on SmackDown, The Monster Among Men decimated The Miz in a singles encounter, which led to Morrison making the challenge. Strowman happily accepted, and the match was later made official.

So yeah, this is happening. Was there seriously nobody else that could have faced Braun for the title at the pay-per-view? Don't get us wrong, M and M are a solid tag-team and are at least moderately entertaining, but why make such a random match? Does anyone believe either of these goofs are actually going to defeat Strowman and become the new Universal Champion?

Anyway, we fully expect Bray Wyatt to get involved in some capacity after we got that quick flash of The Fiend when Braun defeating his old mentor at Money in the Bank a few weeks ago. It's highly unlikely he'll actually cost him the match or the gold, but it should set up another face-off between the two for SummerSlam.
