The biggest event in the history of wrestling in France is fast approaching, with WWE Backlash France taking place this Saturday, May 4, 2024 at the LDLC Arena in Lyon-Décines. While the episode of Friday Night SmackDown on Friday May 3 will also take place in the Lyon arena the day before the pay-per-view, five fights have been announced for the show including four championship matches.

First title defenses for Cody Rhodes and Damian Priest

Cody Rhodes and Damian Priest both became world champions on Night 2 of WrestleMania 40 last month, and they’ll have to put their belts on the line again this Saturday at Backlash.

Cody Rhodes finished his story by riveting the shoulders of the Tribal Chief Roman Reigns at WrestleMania XL Sunday, becoming WWE Universal Champion for the first time in his career. Backlash France will therefore mark his first title defense, when he will be opposed to a former WWE champion in the person of AJ Styles. Which of the two former members of BULLET CLUB will leave the LDLC Arena in Lyon as the face of WWE?

For his part, Damian Priest became world heavyweight champion by using his Money In The Bank briefcase on Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania. Former United States champion and tag team champion, he then won the biggest title of his career, a title that he will put into play for the first time also on Saturday at Backlash France. He will be opposed to “Main Event” Jey Uso for the occasion. Could it finally be the time for the leader of the “YEET movement” to win a first solo championship in WWE?

Several women’s titles at stake

Several women’s titles will also be on the line, starting with a triple threat bout between champion Bayley and challengers Naomi and Tiffany Stratton for the WWE Women’s Championship. This will be Bayley’s second title defense since her WrestleMania XL victory over IYO SKY.

Next, the Kabuki Warriors, Asuka and Kairi Sane, will face Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill in a match for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships.
