The WWE's Backlash Pay-Per-View for 2009 will air on Sunday, April 26th, 2009 live from Providence, Rhode Island. It includes several titles on the line, including the WWE Championship which will be contested in an interesting manner. Current champ Triple H will team up with Shane McMahon and Batista in a 3 on 3 tag match against Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes & Ted Dibiase of Legacy. In the Six man tag match, if any member of Triple H's team is pinned, submits or counted out, then the WWE title will be awarded to Randy Orton.
The World Heavyweight Title worn by John Cena will also be on the line in a Last Man Standing match against former champion, Edge. The Rated-R Superstar has been separated from his wife Vickie Guerrero, who is now the General manager of Raw, but Vickie was still able to schedule this match. It seems to favor the ultimate opportunist who always finds ways to gain victory in a sneaky manner.
Also on the card, the Hardy brothers will continue their feud in an I Quit match, WWE Hall of Famer Ricky the Dragon Steamboat battles Chris Jericho, and just recently added, Smackdown stars CM Punk and Kane will meet in the ring. It definitely has the making of an interesting Pay-Per-View!
