It's AJ Styles against Shinsuke Nakamura. The Phenomenal One versus the King of Strong Style. They did battle at Wrestlemania 34. They faced off again at the Greatest Royal Rumble. And tonight, they go one more time at the WWE's latest pay-per-view Backlash 2018. And you can live stream the whole damn show.

WWE Backlash 2018 - when and where

The Backlash pay-per-view has been a semi-regular fixture on the WWE calendar since 1999. The 2018 event is coming out of the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

The action gets going tonight at 8pm ET / 5pm PT (1am BST Monday morning in the UK). And, as you'll see below, there are loads of options to live stream the whole thing

Fighting champion Styles has taken the win in their first two encounters, but the vicious Nakamura is desperate for the WWE Championship title - and blood. And because this is a No Disqualification bout, anything goes. Chairs, tables and those dangerous low blows that Shinsuke seems so fond of.

And the WWE has booked a strong undercard for Backlash 2018 to watch, too, with grapplers from Raw and Smackdown brands involved. The Intercontinental, United States and both Women's titles are all on the line, while Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe face off in a grudge match. And there's even room for fan favorite Daniel Bryan. Yes! Yes! YES!

Sound pretty good? You bet it does. And getting a live stream for Backlash 2018 is super simple. There are a few ways of watching and we'll tell you about all of them below - wherever in the world you live and absolutely free.

Other pay-per-view providers including Dish (opens in new tab), Cable One and Verizon (opens in new tab) are showing Backlash 2018, but they cost upwards of $40 each.

It's a similar story to your south of the border neighbours. The WWE Network is the cheapest, most convenient place to watch. You can go for PPV via providers such as Bell, SaskTel and Viewers Choice, but expect to pay more than on Vince McMahon's own live stream service.

Nakamura may technically be the heel going in to tonight's main event, but we're betting that most people in his home town of Osaka and, indeed, the rest of Japan will be willing the King of Strong Style to steal the gold. Backlash 2018 will start at 9am Monday morning in Japan. Alternatively,, J:Com and Sukachan are all listed as offering PPV options.
