A WWE Premium Live Event (PLE) is heading to Lyon Metropolis for the first time for WWE Backlash France 2024. Since the formation of TKO in September 2023, WWE has prioritized global expansion. In 2024, Backlash France is the second PLE to be held outside the U.S., and it won’t be the last. Five of the next six WWE PLEs will take place outside the U.S.

Heading into Backlash, WWE is entering the “American Nightmare Era.” After finishing his story at WrestleMania 40, Cody Rhodes is now the Undisputed WWE Champion. A different era means a new crop of challengers for Rhodes. First up is AJ Styles, a former two-time WWE champion. Rhodes must bring his A-game if he wants to walk out of France as champion.

Backlash will start at a special time in the U.S. Below is everything you need to know about WWE Backlash France 2024.
