WWE Backlash

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Backlash was a professional wrestling pay-per-view event made by World Wrestling Entertainment, which started in 1999 and was held in April (but 2005 was not). 2004 to 2006, Raw superstars only appeared at Backlash.

The 2007 event was the first PPV since Judgment Day 2003 (other than Wrestlemania, Summerslam, Royal Rumble, and Survivor Series) to feature all three brands (Raw, SmackDown! and ECW) after WWE stopped with brand-only events.

The last Backlash PPV was in 2009. It was replaced by Extreme Rules in 2010.
