WWE Backlash announced for June 14


During tonight's Money in the Bank pay-per-view, WWE announced the name and date for their June special event.

It was revealed that Backlash will stream live on the WWE Network on Sunday, June 14. A location for the PPV wasn't announced, but it will presumably take place at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. Following WrestleMania 36 and Money in the Bank, it would be WWE's third closed set PPV since the coronavirus pandemic began.

This will be the first time WWE has used the Backlash name for a PPV since 2018. There was originally supposed to be a Backlash event last June, but it was replaced by Stomping Grounds as part of a schedule change involving Super ShowDown 2019 in Saudi Arabia.

After Backlash, Extreme Rules is scheduled to take place on July 19. SummerSlam is then scheduled for August 23. Those shows have been set to take place in San Jose, California and Boston, Massachusetts respectively. Official announcements regarding their status haven't been made yet, but Boston Mayor Marty Walsh announced on May 8 that the city doesn't "envision a point this summer when it will make sense to have large crowds gathered in close contact for prolonged periods."
