The Greatest Royal Rumble is coming up later this week, and with that show being as stacked as it is, it’s easy to forget that WWE has a pay-per-view coming up in May called Backlash. A few matches have already been confirmed for that show, but the women’s title matches for both brands have now just been confirmed by the company. It appears that a rematch from WrestleMania will be taking place with Nia Jax defending her Raw Women’s Championship against Alexa Bliss. Also, Charlotte Flair will be getting the chance to win the Smackdown Women’s Championship back from Carmella. Backlash will be taking place in the Prudential Center in New Jersey on May 6, 2018
Tenille Dashwood has been building up a great reputation for herself ever since she returned to the independent wrestling circuit earlier this year. The former WWE Superstar has competed for Ring of Honor and several other promotions in recent weeks, but Dashwood recently confirmed that she had been dealing with an injury. Her doctors advised her not to compete at the Northeast Wrestling that she had been scheduled to wrestle on over the weekend. Dashwood has since updated fans on the current status of her shoulder injury by stating that she is now back in the gym and is feeling better. PWInsider reports that Dashwood will be returning to the ring in Great Britain this weekend.
The past couple of weeks my body forced me to slow down. However after some much needed rest, massage & active release therapy I’m back in the gym & feeling like myself again!

Dean Ambrose had been teaming up with his Shield brothers, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, for the first time in years in late 2017. However, a triceps injury has forced Ambrose to miss quite a lot of in-ring time, and reports that he had been pulled from autograph signings earlier this month seemed to signify that the Raw Superstar is not quite ready to return just yet. Fortunately, a new injury update on “The Lunatic Fringe” has just been provided. PWInsider now reports that Ambrose was recently spotted in Birmingham, Alabama to receive a checkup on the status of his injury. The report mentions that Ambrose is currently undergoing physical therapy for his triceps injury.
