WWE are all about 'the new era', but in the latest set of changes following on from the brand split, they are bringing back an old pay-per-view.
Later this year, in September, World Wrestling Entertainment will be bringing back WWE Backlash.
Now a lot of the 'new era' fans may not be familiar with this PPV name, unless, of course, they pay $9.99 a month for the WWE Network, but Backlash was a monthly event that ran from 1999 to 2009, only for it to be replaced by Unforgiven, then Breaking Point, and more recently, Night of Champions.

However, with the new brand split, and following on from the WWE Draft, people behind the scenes are now working out a new PPV schedule for each show.
Raw will have their own PPV's and SmackDown LIVE will have theirs, with the two brands coming together for the big four each year. Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, and Survivor Series will all contain superstars from both rosters.
So with more PPVs needed, the WWE have already decided to bring back WWE Backlash, and given the advertisements they are making for the show, it seems like it will be a show for SmackDown LIVE.
WWE are advertising photos of: Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, AJ Styles, and Becky Lynch. As you may have already worked out, all five of these were drafted to Shane McMahon's SmackDown LIVE during the WWE Draft earlier this week.
WWE Backlash will be making it's return on September 11 in the Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, Virginia.
