No title change taking place at Backlash or NXT Takeover: Chicago?

According to the ongoing speculations, no WWE title is scheduled to change hands during either Backlash or the NXT Takeover: Chicago event, taking place this weekend, as noted by cagesideseats.

The reports state that WWE Officials are leaning towards keeping the belts where they are instead of moving them to any of the superstars challenging for the title at the upcoming events.

This makes sense as most of the champions who are defending their titles have either won it within the past couple of months such as Kevin Ownes and Randy Orton or their opponents don’t have enough buildup such as Bobby Roode.

Though it’s important to note here that this is just a rumour and WWE might still surprise everyone by crowning a new champion at the upcoming shows.

    I agree on both counts and if Orrin lost, that would be what, 4 champions since RR; Styles, Cena, Wyatt and Orton. So much moving around lately.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I don’t except Bobby Roode to lose the NXT title for at least a year. I believe they are using Roode to take NXT to the next level. Yes he will be on the main roster but not until after next year WM.

    Randy Orton I believe will be holding on to the WWE title for a while to because I think this just a small push for Mahal he need a little bit more of a build up to be WWE champion.
