At Backlash, Christian won a triple threat hardcore match to become the Intercontinental Champion while Kane became the number one contender. Christian would take the fight to the number one contender with Knae feeling confident about winning the title. It was decided that because there was so much animosity between the two, they would have two matches. The first would be Kane teaming with his ally Batista to take on Christian and his partner Shawn Michaels in a elimination tables match. If Christian's team won, their match later on in the PPV would be non-title. In the second match, Kane would take on Christian and Randy Orton in a handicap match.
