• WWE Cancels Upcoming PPV

According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE has cancelled Backlash 2019 PPV (which was scheduled to take place on June 16).

This was done because WWE will be doing a PPV in Saudi Arabia on June 7th and WWE officials didn’t want to do another PPV just 9 days after the major Saudi Arabia show.

As we noted before, the Saudi Arabia PPV was originally scheduled to take place in May, but it got postponed.
