EXCLUDED – Backlash: A WWE star spills the beans for a new show in France!

Published on May 4, 2024 at 2:46 p.m.

Passionate about sport, cinema and television (on screen and behind) since his childhood, Bernard has been a journalist for 10 Sport since 2018. More skilled with the keyboard in hand than with the ball on his feet, he decides to mainly cover a beloved sport, criticized and hated at the same time (football) and a sport that is not one (wrestling).

French wrestling fans responded to WWE’s expectations on Friday during Smackdown, the incredible atmosphere set by LDLC spectators going around the world thanks to social networks. A popular success which is added to an economic success suggesting that the company should return to our country, this is in any case the opinion of Bayley, the world champion.

Lyon appears to be the capital of wrestling this weekend, the WWE settling down at the LDLC Arena for two events, SmackDown And Backlash. On Friday, the fans responded by giving their voice, an explosive atmosphere that made the whole world react on social networks. This Saturday evening (7 p.m.), it’s time for the big meeting with the first Premium Live Event (or pay-per-view) in the company’s history on our soil. After yesterday’s success, it’s a safe bet that Backlash will not be the last.

“I don’t see why we won’t come back”

Because in addition to the popular success, the May 3 episode of SmackDown made the history of the queen wrestling organization by becoming the most profitable in its 25 years of existence, beating the previous record dating from a few weeks ago. Before Backlash, le10sport.com was able to speak exclusively with Bayley and ask him about the holding of a future PLE in France. “ I think so, apparently last night’s Smackdown was the highest grossing Smackdown in WWE history, and that means Backlash tonight is going to be just as big, if not bigger, so I don’t see why not we will not come back. »

“I was hoping to be able to participate”

She was also impressed by the atmosphere set by the French, Bayley reveals to us that he checked the date of this double event in Lyon a long time ago: “ I was hoping to be able to make it to be honest, because they announced it just a few months ago, and every time we do shows outside of the United States, I’m like, ‘I hope that I will participate in it’, because it’s always different, but this one in particular. If you remember the crowd in Paris the last time we were there, I was just praying to be there or to come to the show, or even to be on Smackdown. But the fact that I was able to wrestle on Smackdown last night and I was able to wrestle tonight (Saturday) in front of this crowd, it couldn’t have worked out better for me. »
