WWE Backlash may have five championship matches on the card, but no match has the hype of the “Greatest Wrestling Match Ever” between Edge and Randy Orton. After weeks of scathing promos and legends offering their picks, it’s finally time to see if Orton and Edge can live up to the hype.

In addition, Drew McIntyre faces his biggest challenge since becoming WWE champion at WrestleMania when he puts the title on the line against Bobby Lashley. Lashley will have MVP in his corner, with the duo having hooked up in recent weeks, pushing Lana out of Lashley’s life and driving him toward a shot at the championship. In the other two world championship bouts, Braun Strowman puts the universal championship on the line in a handicap match against The Miz and John Morrison and Asuka puts the Raw women’s title up against Nia Jax. 

Be sure to follow CBS Sports for live coverage all night.
