WWE superstar Randy Orton recently spoke to CBS Sports to hype tomorrow’s Backlash showdown with Hall of Famer Edge in what is being dubbed as The Greatest Match Ever. Highlights from the interview can be found below.
Believes he and Edge stole the show at WrestleMania 36:
I think if you take the Boneyard Match out of it and you take what Bray [Wyatt] and John Cena did — both of those were fantastic — but if you don’t compare us with that, I think we stole the show,” Orton said. “I did hear some bitching and moaning from the media and the fans about how long this match was. I just laugh, because I saw a couple matches, I think even the world title match if you include entrances and the post-match celebration, they might have gone 4 minutes.
Thinks he and Edge can pull off the high expectations:
At WrestleMania, I think we stole the show. At WrestleMania, I think we had the best story going into it, which definitely helped. The promos were killer, and it’s only going to get better and better. Now, at Backlash, are we doing to have ‘the greatest wrestling match ever?’ Eh. That’s subjective. I kind of painted myself into a corner and the pressure is definitely on, but if anybody is capable of it, it’s myself and Edge.
