WWE Backlash 2020


WWE Backlash is an event that has been around, in essence, since 1999. It initially began its pay per view journey as an In Your House event, although despite not being recognised as a stand alone event, it was still positioned as the follow-up WrestleMania show in late April which would eventually become its trademark.

WWE Backlash 2020


Following a few years of existence, Backlash soon became a Raw-exclusive event following the brand extension, and SmackDown superstars were only part of the show in the year where it became dual-branded. Following the second brand split a few years back, however, SmackDown assumed control of the PPV name in 2016 and 2017.


In the 2020 edition, which will take place on June 14th, both WWE Raw and SmackDown Superstars will compete on the show, and will be the first Backlash event since the 2018 split, and fifteenth in total.

Potential Future


Despite being put on the shelf for a few years prior to Raw and SmackDown receiving two separate rosters again, it seems as if Backlash is here to stay this time around. It’s a show that has a steep history in World Wrestling Entertainment, as it signifies the pay per view ‘season premiere’ of sorts in the wake of WrestleMania. Backlash will always have an illustrious history and intriguing future, and you can go back and watch every past edition of the show on the WWE Network.
