WWE Backlash 2020

WWE Backlash 2020

Date:
June 14, 2020
Location:
WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida

Highlights:

  • Randy Orton defeated Edge in the “Greatest Wrestling Match Ever”, lasting over 44 minutes.
  • No championships changed hands, as all champions either retained or were counted out.
  • The Street Profits & The Viking Raiders were scheduled to have a match, but instead they fought outside the Performance Center. They ran in to Akira Tozawa with some ninjas, including The Giant Ninja. After getting in to the garbage, both teams were spooked by some kind of tentacle creature? I don’t know.
