The headliner was the latest clash between Randy Orton and Edge, who have been at the centre of an escalating feud for the past few months, set up in previous matches at Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania 36.

Notably, Backlash was the first WWE event to be announced since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic and as a result there were far fewer spectators in the stands than usual.

Here are the results from WWE Backlash 2020

Randy Orton vs Edge

It was a gruelling match between the two wrestling icons, which saw a wide array of devastating moves, including Orton’s use of Triple H finisher Pedigree and Edge borrowing Dwayne Johnson’s Rock Bottom.

Ultimately, Orton won the fight and taunted Edge after his victory, meaning that bitter feud probably isn’t going anywhere…

Drew McIntyre vs Bobby Lashley (WWE Championship)

Despite Lashley’s best efforts to overpower McIntyre, the fight was called when he found himself on the receiving end of a so-called Glasgow Kiss.

McIntyre held on to the WWE Championship, which he won back in March as Wrestlemania 36, while a break-up between Lashley and Lana was teased on Twitter…

Braun Strowman retains Universal Championship

Likewise, Braun Strowman defeated tag team The Miz and John Morrison to keep hold of the Universal Championship, which was also won at Wrestlemania 36.

Sasha Banks and Bayley retain Women’s Tag Team titles

Neither Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross nor The IIConics could snatch the Women’s Tag Team title away from current holders Sasha Banks and Bayley.

Sheamus vs Jeff Hardy

Sheamus defeated Jeff Hardy in a singles match that continued the bitter feud between them, with Sheamus saying backstage that there is “no fairytale ending” for his rival…

Apollo Crews vs Andrade

Apollo Crews defeated Andrade in a singles match and, in doing so, retained the WWE United States Championship title.

Asuka vs Nia Jax

The clash between Asuka and Nia Jax for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship ended in a shocking double count out, which means Asuka holds onto the title for the time being.
