Undisputed WWE Championship: Cody Rhodes vs. AJ Styles

WWE Women’s Championship: Bayley vs. Naomi vs. Tiffany Stratton

Street Fight: The Bloodline (Solo Sikoa and Tama Tonga) def. Kevin Owens and Randy Orton by Pinfall

Being instantly turned into a Street Fight by SmackDown General Manager Nick Aldis after the quartet of competitors refused to listen to the referee’s demands, Kevin Owens, Randy Orton, Solo Sikoa, and Tama Tonga brawled all over the LDLC Arena while utilising everything in front of them. When the brawl returned to ringside, tables, kendo sticks, and the steel steps became the focus point of the match, while four chairs were crushed under the weight of Kevin Owens top-rope Brainbustering Tama Tonga. An attempted pinfall on Tonga would be broken up as the returning Tanga Loa - f.k.a Camacho in WWE - yanked referee Dan Engler from the ring. A follow-up Spinning Solo through a chair and Samoan Spike from Sikoa to Owens ended proceedings victoriously for the rogue Solo Sikoa-led Bloodline.

WWE Women’s Championship: Bayley def. Naomi and Tiffany Stratton by Pinfall to retain the WWE Women’s Championship

Contesting a fiercely competitive mat-based match over the Women’s Championship, Bayley, Naomi, and Tiffany Stratton traded rollups all match while sharing the advantage, though Stratton would dominate for large portions. Both Bayley and Naomi found themselves Alabama Slammed on the announce desks, but a missed Prettiest Moonsault Ever back inside the ring left her removed from the equation. Bayley and Naomi reverted to the match’s original strategy, trading pinning combinations until the defending champion caught Naomi off-guard. The duo embraced each other post-match. Bayley’s reign continues at 27 days.

Jey Uso was shown backstage preparing for his World Heavyweight Championship when The Bloodline walked past. Although Solo Sikoa, Tama Tonga, and Tanga Loa walked off, Paul Heyman shook his head at his former ally.

World Heavyweight Championship: Damian Priest def. Jey Uso by Pinfall to retain the World Heavyweight Championship

Controlling the crowd from the palm of his hands, Jey Uso took the fight to Damian Priest, while the champion relied on keeping the match on the ground to hold the advantage over ‘Main Event’ Jey. Continued interference from Judgement Day’s Finn Balor and JD McDonagh prevented Jey from emerging victorious, though they were soon laid out via Spear and suicide dive, respectively. A South of Heaven from the top rope ended the match for Jey Uso, who was then beaten down afterwards by The Judgement Day trio, though Priest pulled Balor and McDonagh away before more damage could be done, hinting at dissension within the group. Damian Priest’s reign continues at 27 days.

Philippe Chereau announced that Backlash: France had grossed the highest gate for any arena show in WWE history.

WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships: Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill def. The Kabuki Warriors (Asuka and Kairi Sane) by Pinfall to win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships

Although the match felt a bit sloppy at times, Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill’s challenge for The Kabuki Warriors’ Women’s Tag Team Championships proved entertaining, benefitting enormously from Belair and Cargill’s immense chemistry together. A Belair beatdown was Asuka and Kairi Sane’s protocol for the match’s duration, keeping ‘The EST’ separated from Jade at all costs. When she was eventually tagged in, Cargill took the pair of ex-NXT Women’s Champions to the limit, springboarding in with a double Crossbody. A few more minutes passed before an inhumane Hurricanrana counter saw Jade position Kairi for Jaded before Bianca planted Asuka atop ‘The Pirate Princess’ with a K.O.D for the win as Belair was crowned a Triple Crown Champion. The Kabuki Warriors’ reign ends at 99 days.

Undisputed WWE Championship: Cody Rhodes def. AJ Styles by Pinfall to retain the Undisputed WWE Championship

An electric, camera-shaking atmosphere encompassed Cody Rhodes and AJ Styles’ collision, which focused heavily on Styles targeting the rumoured injured shoulder of ‘The American Nightmare’. A Powerbomb through the French announce desk downed AJ for a brief period, whereas a springboard 450 Splash from Styles nearly sealed his latest World Championship. Being spurred on from the roar of the audience, AJ and Cody went at each other’s throats in the closing moments before Rhodes finally executed both a Cody Cutter and a Cross Rhodes to mark his first successful defence as Undisputed WWE Champion. Cody Rhodes’ reign continues at 27 days.
