WWE reveals first separate Raw and SmackDown pay-per-views

SummerSlam on August 21st is obviously a joint production, but until now WWE hasn’t given any further details about the upcoming PPV schedule.
On Tuesday, it was announced that Backlash will be returning on September 11th, and will be held in the Richmond Coliseum. It appears to be a SmackDown event.
