Powell’s POV: The build to WWE Backlash left a lot to be desired, particularly on the go-home show. On the plus side, Owens vs. Styles has the potential to be great, Nakamura’s main roster televised in-ring debut should be fun, and it will be interesting to see whether Mahal and Breezango sink or swim. Join me for live coverage beginning with the needlessly long Kickoff Show at 6CT/7ET on Sunday. Dot Net Members will hear an exclusive audio review after the show.
