The WWE is putting on its third pay-per-view in a month. Following WrestleMania 34 and the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia, Backlash will bring both RAW and SmackDown Live together in the first dual-branded show since the WWE Draft in 2016.
Almost all the titles will be defended at Backlash, though both Tag Team Championships and the Cruiserweight title won’t be on the line. The show in New Jersey looks to end and continue feuds heading into SummerSlam .
