How Edge & Randy Orton’s WWE RAW Segment Was Received Backstage

Edge returned to RAW this week following his big Royal Rumble surprise comeback. It was a brutal angle that was hard to watch as Orton demolished Edge, but it told a story that will payoff at WrestleMania.

Fightful Select reports that those backstage in WWE really loved the segment. It was noted to be considered as a “home run.”

We were told that many backstage considered Orton and Edge’s segment at the close of Raw to be a “home run.” Also, USA Network granted WWE a short overrun earlier in the day
