One month ago, WWE presented WrestleMania 40, which had no shortage of memorable moments. It was the official kickoff to a new era, with Cody Rhodes defeating Roman Reigns to win the Undisputed WWE Championship, Damian Priest winning the World Heavyweight Championship at the expense of Drew McIntyre, and Sami Zayn ending Gunther's historic Intercontinental Championship reign. This Saturday, WWE presents its first post-WrestleMania premium live event.

On Saturday, May 4, WWE is heading to Lyon-Decines, France for Backlash 2024. This will be the first premium live event ever to be held in France, so this is significant. Also, it won't be the last international show held in the coming months.

Backlash will see Rhodes defend against AJ Styles, who won a tournament on SmackDown to become the No. 1 contender. As for Priest, he will defend the World Heavyweight Championship against Jey Uso, who defeated McIntyre, Ricochet, and Bronson Reed in a fatal-four-way No. 1 contender's match.

Plus there are other matches like WWE Women's champion Bayley taking on Naomi and Tiffany Stratton, Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill challenging the Kabuki Warriors (Asuka and Kairi Sane) for the WWE Women's Tag Team Championships, and Randy Orton and Kevin Owens taking on Solo Sikoa and Tama Tonga.

For those who are curious about what time the show starts and how they can stream it, we have you covered.
