WWE Backlash is finally here! Fans have been waiting for this moment since WrestleMania 39, which was held several weeks ago. The company’s first premium live event since the massive pay-per-view extravaganza is set to take place tonight, and it promises to be an action-packed affair.

Thankfully, the much-maligned WrestleMania Backlash name wasn’t brought back for 2023. Instead, the event is simply known as Backlash, which is a welcome return to simplicity. The event takes place in Puerto Rico, marking WWE’s first major show in the territory since New Year’s Revolution 2005.

On last night’s episode of WWE SmackDown, the excitement of Puerto Rican fans was palpable. The crowd was incredibly enthusiastic and vocal, indicating that the show will be a massive success. It’s always great to see WWE hold events in different parts of the world, and the reception in Puerto Rico thus far has been nothing short of fantastic.

To get fans even more hyped for the show, WWE has released the full cold open for Backlash on their YouTube channel. It’s an exciting and visually stunning clip that sets the tone for the event perfectly. The video features many of the top stars on the card, and it’s sure to get viewers pumped up for the upcoming action.


WWE Backlash is shaping up to be an incredible event. The show promises to deliver on all fronts, from exciting matches to memorable moments. It’s great to see WWE back in Puerto Rico, and it’s clear that the fans are thrilled to have the company back.

Reminder: Be sure to check back here at 8PM ET for our live play-by-play coverage of the event and also stay tuned for any late breaking news headed into the show.
