Backlash was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced every April (with the exception of 2005) by professional wrestling promotion, International Wrestling Entertainment (IWE). The event was created in 1999, with its inaugural event produced as an In Your House event in April of that year.

The event in 2000 was rebranded as an annual PPV event for IWE. To coincide with the brand extension, the event was made exclusive to the Meltdown brand in 2004.. In 2007, to follow the format of WrestleMania, all PPV events became tri-branded.

In 2010, Extreme Rules took over the event's late April pay-per-view slot.
