It’s official…Edge has accepted Randy Orton’s challenge for WWE Backlash for a “straight up wrestling match.”
In other words, there will be no gimmicks or weapons involved and the only goal is to win the match with a pinfall or submission. The match was first suggested by Edge on last week’s episode of Monday Night Raw. Edge and Orton appeared in the ring this week in a promo segment where Edge talked about Orton not loving the sport of professional wrestling as much as the other wrestlers in the locker room.
No other matches have been announced yet for the pay-per-view. WWE Backlash will air live on Sunday, June 14 on the WWE Network.
