You can watch WWE WrestleMania Backlash live streaming online tonight and you’ll also get more Cody (as a treat) on Peacock. The latest news has leaked internal card listings. Full details below. However, if you are lukewarm on the show, we won’t blame you. The backlash followed at WrestleMania 38, which saw Stone Cold Steve Austin and “American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes return to WWE (not together, of course). What about WrestleMania Backlash?

Well, with just six matches, WrestleMania Backlash 2022 – even after the successful SmackDown – seems to be no match. Not that anyone would expect this, but with WrestleMania in the title, isn’t it worth even trying? It appears that some “premium streams” are not as “premium”.
Either way, maybe we’re just disappointed that there are no stakes in the cross-brand six-man tag team match (Survivor Series in May!) Remember when RK-Bro and The Usos were about to unify the WWE Tag Team Championship? This doesn’t happen at all. At this point, someone will need to pin Roman for this match to count.
Elsewhere, WrestleMania Backlash just looks like WrestleMania Rematch. How could we not think so when you have Rhodes vs. Rollins II, Flair vs. Rosie II, Styles vs Edge II and Lashley vs Omos II? Rhodes vs. Rollins 2 definitely got us interested, but most of this show feels “normal”.
This, however, may just be how WWE keeps us happy. Expectations are very low and a fast paced short map of great wrestling could be just what we need. We also hope that Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair get added to the map in some way, and that Edge and Damian Priest’s Doomsday faction gets a new member or more.
Here’s everything you need to watch the WrestleMania Backlash livestream:
How to watch WrestleMania Backlash live from anywhere in the world
While Peacock is available throughout the US and the WWE Network is still the standard worldwide, live streaming of WWE WrestleMania Backlash can be a little confusing. You can check out a VPN if you can’t watch through the service you normally use.
The international audience will be very jealous of the American audience, who will save up to 50% by switching to Peacock (unless you get the ad-free tier for $9.99 per month).
The best VPN is ExpressVPN. It meets the VPN needs of the vast majority of users, offering excellent compatibility with most devices and impressive connection speeds.

The only place to watch WrestleMania Backlash in the US is at Peacock. WWE premium live events are in the $4.99 Peacock Premium tier; The $9.99 Peacock Premium Plus tier doesn’t get you anything extra for this show. Peacock is now available on most of the top streaming devices.
There is no need to pay for an ad-free tier for live WWE broadcasts, as Peacock’s live programming always has ads.
WrestleMania Backlash Live Streams in the UK

Our friends in the UK will be getting WrestleMania Backlash live on the WWE Network at a higher price, closer to the $9.99 Americans used to pay.
However, don’t expect it to last forever. Peacock is now landing internationally, landing this week in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Who knows how soon WWE content will leak.
While those in the States are now paying less, there is less content available – and the commercial breaks are weird – so getting that discount is a monkey.
Live streaming of WrestleMania Backlash in Australia
