No pressure lads…..

Last night on Raw, WWE made the first match for next month’s Backlash PPV official.

Edge, as expected, accepted Randy Orton’s challenge, made on last week’s show, to a straight up wrestling match.

Now, WWE are promoting this match as The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever!

Interesting tactic and potentially a great one. They know, as we all do, that it’s highly unlikely the match will come anywhere close to that billing. But it won’t stop us talking about it in the run up will it? It won’t stop us all compiling lists of matches that we ‘know’ it won’t reach and it won’t stop many of us getting angry at WWE’s cheek in billing the match this way. Then how many of us will watch on the night just to make double, double sure we were right? They know what they’re doing, don’t they?

WWE Backlash will take place on June 14th and can be watched on the WWE Network.
