WWE Added Crowd Noise for Edge vs Randy Orton Backlash Match and Fans Aren't Happy

The biggest match of tonight's WWE Backlash was unquestionably going to be Edge vs Randy Orton, as it had been billed as The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever. That's an awful lot to live up to, and it seems that WWE wanted to give the match a little extra pep by adding in some extra crowd noise. It doesn't seem that this was the case throughout the whole show, but just the Edge Orton match and fans definitely noticed the difference.

The overall reaction to the match was much livelier than the rest of the show, both in boos, cheers, and chants. There was even a This Is Awesome chant during the match, and the difference between the crowd levels in this match versus earlier in the night was hard to ignore.

Fans picked up on this as well, taking to social media to share their reactions to the additional noise.

"They faked the crowd noise lmaoooooooooo #WWEBacklash"

"What’s up with the piped in audience? #WWE #WWEBacklash"

"fake crowd noise huh wwe?? #backlash"

"I do not like this fake crowd noise. #WWEBacklash"

It makes sense that they would want to throw some extra noise in to add to the title of greatest wrestling match ever, but it seems it was a bit too obvious for many.
