WWE brought the biggest show they could for Backlash, as Puerto Rico welcomed their first WWE event since 2005. That return was a long time coming, but it doesn’t appear word got out into the general public.

Google searches are important because they help determine how many fans are searching for a subject. That can go on to help people figure out what is more popular, at least it shows what people are wanting more information on at the moment.

According to F4WOnline, WWE Backlash actually came in behind other big events on Saturday night. That competition included the Lakers game, a UFC event, and the Kentucky Derby.

As far as Google searches for the weekend comparing the big events:


Warriors vs. Lakers was 2.8 million
UFC was 1.1 million
Kentucky Derby was 3 million
The Canelo Alvarez fight was 700,000
WWE Backlash was 200,000

WWE generated a ton of interest in Puerto Rico for their Backlash event, and that really mattered for the live broadcast. The company’s Google results might not have been outstanding, but they also had a lot of competition that night.

We will have to see when WWE goes back to Puerto Rico. Despite the action-packed card, and Bad Bunny, it doesn’t seem like the event was enough to dominate Google.

What’s your take on the Google searches for Backlash? Do they really matter when it comes to determining interest? Sound off in the comments!
