Nia Jax vs. Alexa Bliss rematch set for WWE Backlash 2018

Nia Jax won the Raw women’s championship from Alexa Bliss at WrestleMania 34 earlier this month. It was, then, only a matter of time before the former champ invoked her rematch clause.

You buying?

Here’s the updated Backlash match card:

  • Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe
  • Seth Rollins vs. The Miz (Intercontinental championship)
  • Nia Jax vs. Alexa Bliss (Raw women’s championship)
