Wrestlemania Backlash Results, Review, And Live Match Card Updates
It’s time for the latest WWE PPV, Wrestlemania Backlash. The May event features a few rematches from feuds that didn’t conclude at this past year’s Wrestlemania. For instance, AJ Styles gets a second shot at Edge, but this time around, Damian Priest is barred from ringside, so hopefully, this will be a fair fight–it probably won’t, and we’ll probably see someone else join Edge’s faction. Throughout the May 8 evening, GameSpot will have Wrestlemania Backlash results and a review of each match live. Check out everything you need to know about what’s happening at this PPV below.
This year’s event is taking place at Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island. While Wrestlemania is more focused on championship matches, Backlash is more concerned with rematches, so there are very few championship matches on the card–with Charlotte Flair vs. Ronda Rousey being the only one.
One of the other highlights of the evening is the rematch between Seth Rollins and Cody Rhodes. At this year’s Wrestlemania, Rhodes was Rollins’ surprise opponent and got the win over the Monday Night Messiah. However, this time around, Rollins is prepared for the American Nightmare.
However, if you want to watch Wrestlemania Backlash live, or a replay after it’s concluded, you’ll need the streaming service Peacock. While it does have a free tier, you will not be able to watch the WWE event through that. You’ll need a Premium ($5 a month, with ads) or Premium Plus Peacock ($10 a month, no ads) account. Regardless of which tier you choose, there will be a few WWE-related ads throughout the show.
There are multiple ways to watch Peacock. Aside from watching it on mobile devices and on the PC, you can stream the service on Amazon Fire devices, Android TV, Apple TV, LG Smart TVs, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Roku, Samsung Smart TVs, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xfinity, and more.
