Bryan told the six women in the ring — Carmella, Naomi, Becky Lynch, Nikki Bella, Natalya, and Alexa Bliss — that each was a deserving title contender so they would decide the very first champion in a Six-Pack Challenge match at the upcoming Backlash pay-per-view (PPV) scheduled for Sun., Sept. 11, 2016, at the Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, Virginia.
