This is how you make the intercontinental title mean more. Intensity. Great matches. Storytelling. #WWEBacklash

Dean Ambrose vs AJ Styles for the WWE World Championship :
Regarding the fact that Ryback said that he was supposed to squash Styles at WrestleMania 32
With the way AJ Styles has been booked since being with WWE, I think it's safe to say that Ryback is a liar. #WWEWorldChampionship

I have known @AJStylesOrg for almost 15years. Nobody more deserving . #WWEBacklash

Is it safe to say the Ambrose experiment officially failed?; well over half the crowd were chanting AJ over Ambrose. #WWEBacklash

Bray Wyatt defeated Randy Orton due to forfeit. Bray attacked Orton earlier in the night, Orton could not compete.
After Wyatt got the victory via forfeit over Orton, it was announced he would face the next opponent in a No Holds Barred match, his opponent was Kane. Kane ended up defeating Bray Wyatt after Orton came out to the ring and gave Wyatt an RKO, Kane hit a chokeslam to get the pin and the victory.
