Below is what WWE posted about this match:
“Four teams have held the Women’s Tag Team Championships, and three of them will be battling for the gold at WWE Backlash. Bayley & Sasha Banks will defend their newly-won titles against Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross and The IIconics in a loaded Triple Threat Match.
The SmackDown Women’s Champion & The Boss are fresh off reclaiming the titles on SmackDown with a win over Bliss & Cross. After an extended absence from the squared circle, The IIconics have made their intentions clear since their return: They want their titles back.
Will the “role models” use the opportunity as a launching point for a long title reign? Or will a former championship tandem once again claim tag team glory?
