The best wrestling match ever. That is how WWE is selling Edge versus Randy Orton, who’ll take one another on throughout Sunday’s WWE Backlash pay-per-view. It is a preposterous declare, particularly since their WrestleMania falls-count-anywhere match was so poorly acquired. However when you neglect in regards to the dumb tagline, it is thrilling to have the ability to see Edge’s first correct match 9 years. (The WrestleMania bout was extra brawl and wrestling match.)
However this is one more reason to be excited: The entire card will not happen in utter silence. WWE has taken to placing its developmental wrestlers within the area, forming a makeshift crowd that makes noise and reacts to issues. After months of silence, it is a welcome change.
The cardboard is not notably sturdy outdoors of the primary occasion. The 2 title matches — WWE Champion Drew McIntyre defending towards Bobby Lashley and Common Champion Braun Strowman defending towards Miz and John Morrison in a handicap match — each really feel like placeholders. There is not any sure-fire banger on the cardboard.
However, as a lot as WWE has a behavior of fumbling what appear to be sure-fire bangers, additionally they typically produce bangers out of nowhere. So we will see.
Backlash takes place in WWE’s Efficiency Heart, in Orlando, Florida. The primary card begins each days at 7 p.m. ET/Four p.m. PT.
