Edge and Randy Orton delivered in what was dubbed as ‘The Greatest Wrestling Match’ in the main event of WWE Backlash at the Performance Center, Florida. While the two veterans had the best match of the card and possibly one of the best of the year so far, Edge suffered torn triceps during the tapings on June 7.
Drew McIntye and his challenger Bobby Lashley put on a solid match, while Strowman, John Morrison and The Miz too entertained, but the second-best match of the card was Shaemus vs Jeff Hardy – a strong to-and-fro battle, hyping up the feud more. However, the RAW Women’s Championship match between Nia Jax and Asuka turned out to be a drag, while the Triple Threat Match for the Women's Tag Team Championship, as nothing but a routine affair.
The Viking Raider, vying for the RAW tag team championship against the Street Profit were wasted on the card in a backstage brawl. Apollo Crews, and Andrade opened the show with a decent match with Kevin Owens involved in an interference.

With a little help from Kevin Owens, Apollo Crews thwarted both Andrade and Angel Garza to remain United States Champion. Owens took a ringside seat for the seesaw battle, joining the commentary team before the bout. Crews fought out of Andrade’s hammerlock DDT attempt to hit a powerslam, standing moonsault and standing shooting star press all in succession, but Garza distracted the referee from counting the champion’s pinfall attempt.
