• Length Of Edge vs. Randy Orton’s Taped Match For Backlash 2020 Revealed
‘The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever’ between Edge and Randy Orton was taped this past Sunday and it’ll air next Sunday when the Backlash 2020 pay-per-view goes live.
According to the Wrestling Observer, their live match at the taping lasted about 35 minutes:
“All I know is that it’s already been taped. I believe they went around 30-35 minutes. So, if you were expecting an 18-minute match after they went 45 minutes at WrestleMania then think again. They tried very hard to actually have the best wrestling that they can.
I was given the impression that the match was 30-35 minutes. Now, it was taped, and there was a reason that they taped it, I believe last Sunday for airing the following Sunday. They want this match to be perfect, at least until whatever they do for the finish.
So, however long they wrestled, if they watched the match, it’s dragging here, Orton’s 8th headlock, you know, too much blah blah blah, they can chop the match down.
I don’t know how long the match is going to be when they are done; I’m just telling you how long it appears when they went live. They could edit this down to 25 minutes, and they could edit this down to 18 minutes, or maybe the full 35 minutes. So, I’m only telling you what I was told in terms of the actual length of the match that they did live.”
For those who don’t know, Edge and Orton had a 36 minute Last Man Standing match at WrestleMania 36. This was the second longest match in WrestleMania history.
