Backlash (2001) was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) promotion, which took place on April 29, 2001 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. It was presented by Castrol GTX, and was the third event under the Backlash chronology. Seven professional wrestling matches were scheduled on the event's card.

The main event was a Tag Team match for the WWF Championship, the WWF Intercontinental Championship, and the WWF Tag Team Championship between The Two Man Power Trip (Steve Austin and Triple H) and The Brothers of Destruction (Kane and The Undertaker), in which the person to get the fall would win the Tag Team Championship as well as the championship of the wrestler who was pinned. The Two Man Power Trip won the encounter to win the Tag Team Championship, for Austin to retain the WWF Championship, and for Triple H to retain the Intercontinental Championship. Featured matches on the undercard included a Last Man Standing match between Shane McMahon and The Big Show, which McMahon won, and an Ultimate Submission match featuring Chris Benoit and Kurt Angle, which Benoit won in overtime.
