Randy Orton explains why Backlash clash against Edge has been labelled ‘The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever’ by WWE boss Vince McMahon.
Randy Orton and Edge are two of the most experienced wrestlers in the WWE today. The pair will go against each other at WWE Backlash this Sunday. However, there will be huge expectations on them after the WWE decided to title their match ‘”Greatest Wrestling Match of All Time”.
The Viper revealed during a conference call that he wasn’t thrilled to find out about the tag. However, he believes that Vince McMahon set the match up with that particular name to try and motivate the veterans to put their best foot forward.

“The expectations are very high for Edge and I,” Orton said. “I wasn’t exactly happy that I heard they were calling it the greatest wrestling match in history, but I feel like at this point in my career, and being in there with Edge, who I consider one of the best workers in the business past, present or future, if anybody could have a great match, it’s Edge and I.”

“The pressure is on, I don’t think there’s ever been a couple guys like Edge and myself that have been in this position,” Orton continued. “We’ve been painted in a corner and I think Vince did that so he could see what we are capable of. Between the both of us, we probably have 50 years of experience, so even though he hasn’t been in the ring and had those injuries, I’ve had injuries, too, and I feel were two of the best of this generation.”
