WWE BACKLASH FRANCE: Backlash France becomes WWE’s largest arena gate in history

Posted on 5/05/124 by Colin Vassallo

Backlash France became WWE’s largest arena gate in history,
surpassing London’s Money In The Bank 2023 premium live
event which had a gate of $3.3 million.

This adds to the record of yesterday where Smackdown in Lyon
became the record holder for the biggest gate in Smackdown
history, a record which was just broken a few weeks ago with
Smackdown in Philadelphia.

Over 11,600 fans attended Backlash tonight and surpassing
London’s record would make the average ticket price of
around $300.

In the post-show press conference, Triple H put over the
city of Lyon and the country of France for showing up and
promised that this won’t be the last time they come for a
show. He also mentioned that during the broadcast, he
received a text from WWE President Nick Khan which simply
said, “Stadium?”

WWE has several international premium live events lined up,
starting with King and Queen of the Ring in Jeddah, Saudi
Arabia later this month, Clash at the Castle in Glasgow,
Scotland, in June, Money In The Bank in Toronto, Canada in
July, and Bash In Berlin in Berlin, Germany in August.
