Watch WWE Backlash 2023: preview

Rather than unleashing The American Nightmare upon his foes, Cody Rhodes has been living it of late, and he may be wondering just how it is that he's ended up having to face Brock Lesnar at WWE Backlash 2023 without a title up for grabs. This wasn't how things were supposed to go down...

The duo were all set to take on Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa together last month but The Beast Incarnate had plans of his own. Even discounting the betrayal element, the beating that Lesnar laid down on Rhodes was beyond anything he's ever experienced, and his pride and reputation are both on the line at Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot. Fail to secure revenge and he'll be the laughing stock of WWE.

There are three belts on the line at Backlash, and one of the most intriguing showdowns involves Damage CTRL. Bianca Belair will go nose-to-nose with Iyo Sky in one of the night's headline events, but with Bayley and Dakota Kai also set to have their say in proceedings, there's good reason to suspect that a shake-up is afoot.

The three-way brawl between Austin Theory, Bobby Lashley and Bronson Reed will be pure chaos, while Zelina Vega and Bad Bunny will be hoping to do themselves proud in Puerto Rico. Read on for the full WWE Backlash 2023 card and wrestler list, and all you need to know to watch a WWE live stream online from anywhere.
