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 Damian Priest vs. Jey Uso for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

At WWE Backlash France, newly crowned World Heavyweight Champion Damian Priest will defend his title for the first time against “Main Event” Jey Uso.

Just moments after Drew McIntyre overcame Seth “Freakin” Rollins to win the World Heavyweight Title and was taken out in a post-match confrontation with CM Punk at WrestleMania, Señor Money in the Bank cashed in his contract to end The Scottish Warrior’s reign before it could barely begin.

Who, however, would be the first to test the new titleholder’s mettle?

Jey Uso would answer that question with a reckoning. After Punk's interference once again cost McIntyre the win in a high-stakes Fatal 4-Way Match, Uso capitalized by hitting The Scottish Warrior with a Superkick/Spear combination to become the No. 1 Contender to the World Heavyweight Title.
