BL 2017 Zayn v Corbin

Prepare yourself for all-out war when Sami Zayn goes one-on-one against Baron Corbin at WWE Backlash this Sunday, streaming live on WWE Network.

It seems as if Zayn and Corbin have been on a collision course ever since The Underdog from the Underground journeyed to the blue brand as part of April's Superstar Shake-up. This was perhaps most evident when The Lone Wolf suddenly and ruthlessly attacked Zayn from behind during an episode of WWE Talking Smack several weeks ago. While the relentless Superstar was suspended for a week for shoving an official, true justice would be served on the May 9 edition of SmackDown LIVE when Zayn answered back with an attack of his own.

As the conflict reached a boiling point, Zayn officially requested - and soon received - a chance to tame The Lone Wolf in a matchup with Corbin at WWE Backlash. Before Zayn could fully elaborate on his strategy for that showdown, however, Corbin unleashed another vicious onslaught and seized important momentum heading into Sunday's per-per-view.
