    Fiend vs Goldberg gets a pass for being hilarious and burying the Fiend.

    Edge and Orton was depressing with zero redeeming qualities.

    3 minutes vs 40 minutes makes it a pretty easy call on which one caused more suffering.

    Was 40 minutes to long? Hell yes. Would 25 minutes have been to long? Hell Yes. But still. Edge/Orton at least had a few spots of entertainment.

    Fiend V Goldberg was basically a old man v juggalo porno. Just god awful and I will forever boo the hell out of Goldberg for that crap.
    It’s a weapon. It’s really powerful, especially against living things.

    Edge comeback first, the build up, there are some parts of it that was entertaining but that's just my opinion it is what it is.

    40 minutes of badness will always outdo 3 minutes of badness. 40 minutes is a long time for a good match, let alone a match that most people deem terrible. 3 minutes is nothing and for a match of that length, it can be an easy thing to watch and forget about soon after.

    I'd only call like 30 minutes of it terrible, but still 3 minutes of terrible is better to me than 30 minutes of terrible and 10 minutes of good.

    Thanks. I don't agree at all, but at least you said something to back up your argument.

    Case in point, I'd pretty much forgotten about it because it was such a nothing match. The only redeeming quality about it was, as Shock said, burying the Fiend. That actually puts it in the MOTY conversation as far as I'm concerned.

    Anyhow, yeah, 3 minutes is way too short to be deemed offensive enough to enter into a worst match of the year argument.

    I haven't seen either, but thinking Goldberg/Fiend was ever gonna be anything more than a spear/jackhammer short sprint beforehand is extremely naive. The upset is more about the result than the obvious match structure.

    Of course, you could also argue that anyone expecting a different result were being extremely naive as well.

    Most of what you said was before the match happened. This doesn't affect people's views on the match itself.

    My sentiments exactly. That's my favorite match I've watched all year.

    Re: WWE Backlash 2020 - Edge vs Randy Orton

    I didn’t think Edge and Orton at Mania was as bad as everyone else here thinks it was, but I can understand why y’all feel that way about it and that’s fine by me different strokes for different folks. I’ll admit that even I didn’t think it was so bad, it did kind of drag towards the end but that didn’t even really deter me from enjoying it overall.

    Re: WWE Backlash 2020 - Edge vs Randy Orton

    No doubt it's going to be a good match, but no way it's anyway near the greatest wrestling match ever.


    It's great that WWE pre-recorded this match a few days ago because it allows them to play with/change the match to make it better. I'm sure they will cut sections out and re-arrange the match to come across better but it won't and can't be the greatest wrestling match.


    Gawd knows why they started using that tagline in the first place.

    Didn't they spent ages editing and re-doing the first match with WM being pre-taped?

    Re: WWE Backlash 2020 - Edge vs Randy Orton

    I'll actually be disappointed if the match is good. I either want it to be a 5 second low blow from Orton, or a ridiculous over the top meta parody of a good match. I'm talking super kicks, false finishes, the plants in the crowd chanting "fight forever*, that kind of thing. Have them recreate Okada vs Omega move for move or something.

    If they're going to use this tag line I want to see them go all in.
