WWE Backlash 2016 Predictions

Tonight the first ever SmackDown’s Women’s Champion will be crowned at Backlash at the Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, Virginia.

This is the first SmackDown branded PPV since the roster split in July.

We here at Squared Circle Sirens are going to give you our predictions on who will walk out the winnerand the first ever SmackDown women’s champion!

Becky Lynch vs. Nikki Bella vs. Natalya Neidhart vs. Naomi vs. Alexa Bliss vs. Carmella


Casey: I’d honestly be happy with any of these women becoming the first SmackDown Women’s Champion. The SmackDown Women’s division has been such a highlight since the brand split. Every girl has a role on SmackDown and they are all featured each and every week. Carmella’s heel turn was done so well and I’m loving her feud with Nikki. Let’s be honest Carmella was struggling without Enzo and Cass and the turn was just what she needed. I think the first champion should be an established star and I honestly think Nikki Bella is the biggest name in the SmackDown women’s division. How awesome would it be for her to return from her neck injury and win the SmackDown Women’s Title? My pick is Nikki Bella!

Jay: Let’s see, this should be a great first match for the Smackdown Women’s Title. I can see any of these girls taking the gold and running with it creating interesting storylines along the way. Who I want, and who I think will get it is two different things. I would like to see Becky or Naomi take the title. Who I think is going to win is Nikki Bella, with her popularity and her roles on Total Divas and soon to be Total Bellas, the title on her makes sense, ah the power of reality tv.
