Backlash France will be the 19th Backlash PLE and will take place on Saturday, May 4, 2024, at the LDLC Arena in Décines-Charpieu in Lyon Metropolis, France.

The card will feature Superstars from Raw and SmackDown, including Cody Rhodes vs. the Phenomenal AJ Styles for the WWE Undisputed Championship.

At WrestleMania, Cody Rhodes overcame all odds and finished his story by conquering Roman Reigns in a Bloodline Rules Match to claim the Undisputed WWE Championship.

Rhodes returned from The Showcase of the Immortals to a hero’s welcome on Raw and SmackDown.

There is, however, no rest for the Superstar who stands at the top of the mountain, and a new battle is quickly waged to determine who would be the first to challenge The American Nightmare at WWE Backlash France.

In a pair of hard-fought Triple Threat Matches, LA Knight defeated Bobby Lashley and Santos Escobar, while AJ Styles edged Kevin Owens and Rey Mysterio.

Then, in a showdown to determine the No. 1 Contender, The Phenomenal One overcame his bitter rival Knight in an explosive WrestleMania rematch.

Rhodes and Styles are two of only four Superstars to have held both the WWE Title and the NWA Heavyweight Title.

Can Styles change the story and take the Undisputed WWE Championship from a titleholder who is riding the wave of destiny?
