Before you know it, WrestleMania Backlash will be streaming for the millions of WWE fans around the world tuning in to watch the best in-ring action the largest name in sports entertainment has to offer. Barely a month removed from the monumental and historic two-night WrestleMania 37, the upcoming WWE show will see several rematches from the Showcase of the Immortals as well as some recently ignited rivalries featuring returning stars and tag teams.

With not much time before the show kicks off at 7 p.m. E.T., Sunday, May 16 live from the WWE ThunderDome, let’s go ahead and get into how you can watch WrestleMania Backlash streaming, who is wrestling, and other details about what is traditionally one of the best shows of the year.

Where Is WrestleMania Backlash Streaming

If you are residing in the United States of America and you want to watch WrestleMania Backlash streaming Sunday evening, all you need to do go to the Peacock app or website around the start of the show and click on the WWE Network on Peacock hub, find the show’s title card, and click to start watching. I strongly recommend doing this ahead of time and then going about your pre-show business before things kick off at 7 p.m. E.T. Sunday.

Sign up for Peacock.

Who Is Wrestling At WrestleMania Backlash

Now that you know when, where, and how you can watch WrestleMania Backlash streaming, you probably want to know who all is wrestling at the 2021 post-WrestleMania show.

Two of the major feuds from WrestleMania 37 will see the next chapter in their respective stories with a pair of high-profile rematches. First, WWE Champion Bobby Lashley will be defending his title against his WrestleMania opponent and former champion Drew McIntyre with Braun Strowman being added, making it a triple threat match. The Raw Women’s Championship rematch will also be a triple threat match as Rhea Ripley defends her belt against Asuka and a returning Charlotte Flair.

Bianca Belair, who was part of the historic WrestleMania 37 Night One main event, will put her SmackDown Women’s Championship on the line in a one-on-one match against former champion Bayley. Roman Reigns (new music and all) aims to prove he is the Head of the Table of SmackDown when he defends the Universal Championship in a one-on-one bout against Cesaro, who is becoming one of the most exciting stories in the company this year.

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Dirty Dawgs (Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode) will defend their straps against the father-son pairing of Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio.
