    Backlash 2 WWE Backlash 2020 - Edge vs Randy Orton



    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com
    At WrestleMania 36, Edge and Randy Orton viciously brawled throughout the WWE Performance Center, pushing past the limits of most mortal competitors until The Rated-R Superstar delivered the decisive blow.

    Even The Viper admitted that the better man won that night but with one major caveat: that the better wrestler didn’t. Orton laid down a challenge for a true test of grappling skills in what he coined The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever, but Raw went off the air before Edge could respond. The following week, The Rated R-Superstar emphatically accepted the proposal and was ready to make history with a win.

    Will the pair author The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever? And can either put a definitive end to this personal and heated rivalry?

    Either this is a great troll job or this company has completely jumped the shark on how out of touch they are

    I, for one, can't wait to see the greatest match of all time.

    I think it is pretty obvious that this is a way of getting heat on Orton. He's going to win by cheating or shenanigans and then gloat about it. 'You think I care about having the greatest match' etc....

    Re: WWE Backlash 2020 - Edge vs Randy Orton

    These two barely had a good match together when they were in their athletic prime, nevermind now when they're two washed up hacks wrestling in front of nobody.

    Plus, it's ridiculous that they're saying this could be the greatest wrestling match ever when the whole point of the story they're trying to tell is literally that one of the guys isn't as good as he used to be.

    So dumb on so many levels.

    I think it's just Vince trolling everyone. WWE have shown recently that they can be very self aware and I think they saw all the flack the first match got and decided to have some fun with it. All this match needs is Bret coming out at the end and giving the thumbs up, approving the match.

    I read someone theorise that this is so that if someone Googles “greatest wrestling match ever” they get WWE as the top result and not something from another promotion like the most-hyped 7* New Japan matches.

    But I actually believe it.

    Ok that's a level of pettiness I can get behind and actually explains why they've gone this weird route of promoting the match this way

    I'm pretty sure this is just an elaborate joke by Vince McMahon.

    I'm still sticking by the theory it is because they'll be a shitty cheating finish from Orton. He was the one that brought the 'greatest wrestling match ever' thing into it wasn't he?

    It's a little known fact that Vince McMahon is an expert in SEO.

    The only trouble with that is it'll mean the feud...must...continue.

    What's next, the Even Greaterest Wrestling Match Ever? Actually, that would be pretty amazing. BOOK IT PATTERSON~!

    That sounds like a tag line to a Saudi Arabia show if I’ve ever heard one

    Would make it MAYBE watchable at that point.
    It’s a weapon. It’s really powerful, especially against living things.

    Puts the extra "p" in Nappa Valley since Day 1.

    I'm perversely interested in this match, if only to see how they manage to top an easy Worst Match of the Year contender. Let's hope that they decide to make this one even longer.

    I wasn't the biggest fan of the street fight but to call it worst match of the year is a huge overreach

    Time has never went by so slowly until that match. It should be rewarded with scientific study.

    As an aficionado of bad wrestling, I'd love for you to be able to enlighten me as to what was worse. Would any of them have been that long? Would any of them have featured two stars at the level of Orton and Edge in such a prominent position on the card during one of the biggest shows of the year? Would any of them have over-dramatic acting from guys who've been in the game way too long to resort to it? Would any of them feature one of the dumbest endings to any match ever?

    Man, if you can find something worse than that, I'd watch the shit out of it.

    So are we just not going to count The Fiend V Goldberg then? Okay.. just checking.
