Backlash, the WWE’s latest pay-per-view, is now just hours away. But before the program itself, a kickoff show is scheduled to take place.
The Backlash kickoff show will begin at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Although Backlash itself is exclusive to the WWE Network, the kickoff show will be made available for streaming in the embedded YouTube player via the WWE.
This Backlash kickoff show will feature a match between Tye Dillinger and Aiden English, who have been feuding on SmackDown Live in recent weeks.
WWE kickoff shows are typically one hour long, with a match taking place about a half-hour in. The rest of the kickoff show will involve a panel of WWE commentators previewing the night’s events and offering their predictions.
At 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Backlash itself will begin. At that point, the YouTube stream will end, and you’ll need to switch over to the WWE Network. You can also order the pay-per-view via your cable provider.
Backlash is being headlined by match between Randy Orton and Jinder Mahal. There will also be a United States Championship back between AJ Styles and Kevin Owens.
