According to Bodyslam.net‘s Brad Shepard (via @camjxm), WWE is reportedly moving back towards dual-branded pay-per-view events starting with the WWE Backlash event.

A screenshot of the email sent to fans from Ticketmaster shows the event is now being advertised as a RAW and Smackdown branded event.

Additionally, the @WrestleVotes account, which has broken several stories the past year including Neville’s WWE walk out, is noting the following reasons for the move back to dual-branded PPV events:

Starting with the Backlash PPV May 6th, all PPVs going forward will be dual branded. No more RAW or Smackdown exclusive shows. Source states repetitive matchups to fill the card along with so-so ticket sales lead to the decision. The weekly TV shows will not be effected.

It should be noted that WWE has not confirmed these changes at this time.
