Randy Orton and Edge are all set to battle each other in what is being billed as the “Greatest Wrestling Match Ever” at Backlash. However, the match has already been taped in advance and is reportedly a long bout.
Kurt Angle was asked to state his pick for the match. Angle talked about chemistry being a key factor in making a wrestling match great and Orton and Edge have that with each other.
Angle said that he’s been in the ring with both men and if they can pull the best performance out of each other they can surely deliver what’s been promised.
Ultimately, Angle revealed that his pick for Sunday’s match is Edge and that he firmly believes that the Rated R Superstar will taste victory at Backlash.
Like Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels, I know a thing or two about competing in a great wrestling match. I have always believed a lot of things go into a great wrestling match but I think chemistry might be the most important. It’s hard to explain, but sometimes all you have to do is step in the ring with someone and just like that, you guys are on the same page. You bring out the best in them and they bring out the best in you.
Ric [Flair] had that with Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat. Shawn [Michaels] had that with The Undertaker. I had that with Brock Lesnar. And Edge has that with Randy Orton right now. But man, I am glad I am not Edge or Randy right now because the Greatest Wrestling Match Ever sounds like a lot of pressure.
I’ve stood toe-to-toe with both and if they could pull the absolute best out of each other, this Sunday at Backlash, I think they can rise to the occasion. But who do I think is gonna win? I am gonna have to go with Edge.
