WWE cancels Backlash PPV due to Saudi Arabia event

WWE has canceled the WWE Backlash PPV which was set for June 16, 2019, according to SocalUncensored.com.

The reason for this is because of upcoming the Saudi Arabia show which has been moved to June 7 and the company didn't want to big events close together. In addition, there is a feeling that having a PPV named "Backlash" following the Saudi show would be controversial given recent events.

This company is a joke

..Couldn't they have just moved Backlash to a different time? maybe to when the Saudi PPV was meant to happen?

So they are concerned about some words having negative effects, but not their actions of actually going to and doing business with Saudi Arabia? Sounds about right.

Should no P.P.V or any tv show after WM because they need off-season, so they can focus on overseas roadshow.

Not funny. As long the Saudi Arabia thing was an additional PPV, I didn`t care. But taking another PPV out of the calendar for that is lame.
