WWE Backlash results: Five titles on the line, ninjas and The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever

Edge and Orton clashed at Backlash

WWE Backlash took place on Sunday night. 

It was the third main roster pay-per-view that has taken place at the Performance Center due to the coronavirus crisis, following WrestleMania 36 and Money in the Bank. 

For the first time since Elimination Chamber in March, there was a PPV audience of sorts in the form of developmental wrestlers at ringside. 

There were seven matches at Backlash this year, with five titles on the line. 

The card also featured what WWE were calling 'The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever' between Edge and Randy Orton, which closed the show. 

The full results from Backlash can be seen below:

  • Apollo Crews (c) def. Andrade (with Angel Garza and Zelina Vega) to retain the United States Championship
  • Bayley and Sasha Banks (c) def. Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross and The IIconics to retain the Women's Tag Team Championship
  • Sheamus def. Jeff Hardy
  • Asuka (c) vs Nia Jax ended in a double count-out (Asuka retains the RAW Women's Championship)
  • Braun Strowman (c) def. The Miz and John Morrison to retain the Universal Championship
  • Drew McIntyre (c) def. Bobby Lashley (with MVP) to retain the WWE Championship
  • The Street Profits (c) vs. The Viking Raiders (There was no result. The two teams were involved in a comedy cinematic match that involved them fighting ninjas)
  • Randy Orton def. Edge in 'The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever' 
Orton beat Edge in the main event

While there were no title changes, there were plenty of surprises at Backlash - perhaps most notably in the RAW tag team championship match. 

As you can see from the results breakdown above, there wasn't actually a title match.

The Street Profits and The Viking Raiders teamed up to fight ninjas (yes, really) and their match involved a number of dream sequences and comedy segments. Bizarre, right? 

The RAW tag team championship match was different

Edge vs Orton, the main event, also featured unique camera angles and enhanced audio to help sell it as 'The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever'.

That match, which lasted almost 45 minutes, was won by Orton when he caught Edge with a low blow and a punt to the head.
