The main event of last night’s WWE Backlash pay-per-view witnessed Randy Orton defeating WWE Hall of Famer Edge by pinfall. The match lives up to the hypes as the veterans took each other to the maximum limits before Orton took advantage of his mean streak to come out as the winner.

He hit a low blow to the Rated R Superstar and then connected with the Punt Kick to secure the victory and put his opponent’s future in jeopardy.

There’s no update on when Edge would be featuring in action, again. If he is indeed suffering from a torn triceps, it would usually take around 8 months to get fully recovered depending on how the surgery procedure will go by. The injury and the finish to the match were only known as the match aired on the WWE Network, last night.



Meanwhile, WWE used featured different camera angles and piped-in crowd noise for Edge vs Randy Orton at the PC. The announcers also addressed before the match that WWE would be enhancing the viewing experience with some additional tricks.


The match at Backlash opened with paying tribute to the late WWE Hall of Famer Howard Finkel as his voice rang out, introducing both Edge and Randy Orton. The Rock’s Rock Bottom by Edge, Triple H’s Pedigree by Orton, and then the Three Amigos from WWE Hall of Famer Eddie Guerrero by both the competitors were also traded during the match.
