We're just 24 hours away from crowning a new WWE Champion when six of Raw's top superstars battle it out for the chance to win the WWE Championship vacated by Shawn Michaels, some for the first time in East Rutherford, New Jersey tomorrow night.
The Izod Center will host Backlash and the tournament that could see Rey Mysterio add to the World Heavyweight Championship he won three years ago. Chris Jericho is no stranger to winning a championship tournament as he often likes to remind us. Can he repeat that amazing feat of 2001 when he defeated The Rock & 'Stonecold' Steve Austin in the same night to become the first Undisputed Champion?
Will Rob Van Dam win his second WWE title, or will John Cena or Edge be the one to add to their multiple reigns as WWE Champion? Can Kofi Kingston cause a giant upset, replicating Jericho's achievement over seven years ago? We don't have long to find out now!
The World Tag Team titles will be on the line too when The Epitome of Excellence defend them against the former champions, Cryme Time. Shad & JTG had to forfeit them last year when Shad broke his ankle. They weren't defeated for the titles, and it'll be a challenge for the men who will have to likely have to prove they are the epitome of excellence if they are to do what no one could do last year in beating Cryme Time to be the champions.
Two dangerous women will collide in a Falls Count Anywhere match when O.D.B. comes face-to-face with Queen Kong. They've both interfered in each other's title matches with Beth Phoenix, costing them the opportunity to be Diva's Champion, and they'll both be fighting for the possibility of getting another crack at Beth's title.
There'll be a lot of people hoping that Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig get what's coming to them for their attitude towards Justin Gabriel's sexuality. Gabriel and his tag team partner, John Morrison let them know they're hell bent on doing just that in New Jersey, but will they give the beating we all hope Rhodes & Hennig deserve?
Raw's two newest divas, Angel Love & Talia Sky, who call themselves Picture Perfect will be hoping for a perfect pay-per-view debut when they take on Melina & Kelly Kelly. They believe that there is a problem with the diva culture on Raw and plan to show the Raw fans that they're superior, but will they?
Also, on the pre-show
, Sheamus will defend the Intercontinental Championship against Matt Hardy. Hardy has left Sheamus livid the past two weeks on Raw. Can he leave him even angrier tomorrow night by taking his Intercontinental title?
