Here's what happened to Backlash 2023!

Here's what happened on the WWE Backlash PPV, held on 5/7/2023 at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Kickoff: Nothing in particular happened, just a recap and preview of the matches that will take place in the main event.

The Intercontinental, Undisputed WWE Universal, Undisputed WWE Tag Team and Women's Tag Team titles were not defended at this PPV. One of the most anticipated matches of tonight, in the last WWE ppv, or Backlash, was certainly the one staged by Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar, with the two athletes who had come to loggerheads in the post-WrestleMania episode of Monday Night Raw when Lesnar brutally attacked Cody, shortly before their tag team match against the Bloodline.

After his sensational turn heel, Lesnar then continued to mock Rhodes, appearing several times on Monday Night Raw and never having the opportunity to seriously face to face with the American Nightmare in the ring, always separated by WWE security.

However, there was finally the final showdown, with the two facing off in a no-holds-barred match that thrilled the Latino fans in Puerto Rico.
