5 Mistakes WWE Must Avoid At All Costs

5 Mistakes WWE Must Avoid At All Costs
WWE's WrestleMania Backlash will take place on Sunday, May 16, 2021. The addition of WrestleMania to the title, which was previously known as just Backlash, was an interesting development.

WrestleMania Backlash will feature a variety of rematches from last month's Show of Shows, with several tweaks and additions. A total of six matches have been confirmed for the show as of the writing of this post, including five title matches and one Lumberjack match.

With this being the first pay-per-view following WrestleMania 37, WWE would like to get off to a good start and avoid bookings that could damage them in the long run. Let's take a look at five mistakes WWE can avoid at WrestleMania Backlash with that in mind.

WrestleMania Backlash Rhea Ripley loses the RAW Women's Championship

Rhea Ripley defeated Asuka to win the RAW Women's Championship at WrestleMania 37 last month. She'll defend her title against The Empress and Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania Backlash this Sunday, just over a month away.

These three women have a lot of experience together, as they've all competed against each other in singles matches at WrestleMania in recent years. Without a doubt, the match between them at WrestleMania Backlash has the potential to be an instant classic.

Charlotte Flair has made some interesting changes to her persona since her return to RAW following WrestleMania. WWE may be tempted to reclaim The Queen's RAW Women's Championship, but this is a mistake they should avoid.

Rhea Ripley is the women's division's potential, and she deserves a true first reign as RAW Women's Champion. She's been impressive so far, and WWE can keep up the good work. A win over Asuka and Flair will demonstrate to WWE that Ripley is more than a makeshift champion and that she is the face of their women's division.

After WrestleMania Backlash The feud between The Miz and Damian Priest continues

5 Mistakes WWE Must Avoid At All Costs
Damian Priest will face The Miz in a one-on-one match at WrestleMania Backlash, according to the new match announcement. Priest defeated John Morrison on Monday Night RAW this week, earning him the right to select the stipulation for his match against The Miz at WrestleMania Backlash, which he announced to be a Lumberjack match.

Damian Priest made his Monday Night RAW debut earlier this year and has been feuding with The Miz and John Morrison ever since. Priest teamed up with Bad Bunny, a Puerto Rican rapper and musician, to beat The Miz and Morrison at WrestleMania 37. Instead of ending the rivalry, WWE has continued it, culminating in this match in WrestleMania Backlash.

Priest, a former NXT North American Champion, has wowed fans with his tenure with the Black and Gold. The Archer of Infamy possesses all of the necessary characteristics to be a good main roster performer for the organization.

As good as The Miz has been as a heel, assisting Damian Priest in his transition to babyface, WWE needs to put an end to this rivalry at WrestleMania Backlash this Sunday, with Priest winning by a wide margin. He would then have a feud with Sheamus, the United States Champion

Bianca Belair against Bayley looks weak at WrestleMania Backlash in her match

Bianca Belair, the SmackDown Women's Champion, will defend her title against Bayley at WrestleMania Backlash. Belair won the SmackDown Women's Championship in the main event of Night One of WrestleMania 37, defeating Sasha Banks.

Even though the whole storyline of her chasing the championship was fantastic, WWE didn't book her very well after that. Following their big championship triumph, WWE has a habit of not properly booking their babyface champions.

Since WrestleMania 37, Bianca Belair has teamed up with The Street Profits on many occasions. Although there's nothing wrong with that, it's not been adequately focused on her. She is now being viewed as the underdog in her rivalry with Bayley ahead of WrestleMania Backlash.

Although it's impossible that Belair will relinquish her SmackDown Women's Championship to Bayley at WrestleMania Backlash this Sunday, WWE must avoid portraying her as a poor woman. The two should have a close match, but The EST of WWE should emerge victoriously and cement her place as SmackDown's top female superstar.

WrestleMania Backlash Roman Reigns loses the Universal Championship

5 Mistakes WWE Must Avoid At All Costs
Roman Reigns will defend his Universal Championship against Cesaro in what is expected to be the main event of WrestleMania Backlash. The Swiss Superman is in the midst of what is probably his most successful singles push in WWE history. Cesaro is at the top of his game after a series of big victories on SmackDown and a victory over Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 37.

Cesaro's fans have been outspoken in recent years about their desire to see him win a world title. However, as exciting as it will be to see him actually win the Universal Championship, WrestleMania Backlash is probably not the right venue.

Roman Reigns has retained the Universal Championship for more than 250 days, and it could be claimed that this is the greatest Universal Championship reign since the title was first introduced in 2016. With all of the build-up, The Tribal Chief could lose the Universal title at a far bigger event than WrestleMania Backlash, most likely SummerSlam 2021 or even WrestleMania 38 next year.

WrestleMania Backlash Cesaro loses clean to Roman Reigns

Although it is unacceptable for Roman Reigns to lose his Universal Championship at WrestleMania Backlash, WWE should not force Cesaro to lose clean to The Tribal Chief. The Swiss Cyborg is currently in the midst of a fantastic single run on Friday Night SmackDown, as stated previously.

While WrestleMania Backlash might not be the ideal time for Roman Reigns to hand over the Universal title to Cesaro, the latter's momentum would be severely harmed if he lost clean. Tommy Dreamer, a former WWE Superstar, recently praised Cesaro, saying that he would be "the man" in WWE.

Instead, WWE should have Roman Reigns win with some outside support from Jey Uso or even the returning Jimmy Uso, who could turn heel and recognize Roman Reigns as The Head of the Table. Cesaro would be protected, and The Bloodline could begin a proper heel-run.
