When Randy Orton closed out Monday Night Raw last week by challenging Edge to a rematch at Backlash, Charly Caruso stated on camera that the match "could potentially be the greatest wrestling match of all time." Fans scoffed at the line at the time, saying that WWE was trying to over-hype the match between the two former world champions. But WWE seemed to double down on it this week, having Caruso open the show by repeating the line and having WWE's commentary team say it repeatedly after Edge officially accepted the challenge.
WWE fans took to Twitter to mock the line. Most of the comments weren't directed at either Edge or Orton — their resumes are untouchable — but rather that WWE was trying to oversell a match.

I love both of them and this will be great but...why’re we building this as the greatest wrestling match ever...? In 2020...? https://t.co/Qs3ofPdaNT— Gaston LaRue (@GastonLarue) May 19, 2020
Ok...They're trolling us now, right? With this whole 'greatest wrestling match ever' thing...I'm excited for the match. Edge and Randy sold it to me but if the #WWE keeps saying that phrase I can't take it seriously. #WWERaw— SuperDuperPositiveWrestling (@uhm_inmyopinion) May 19, 2020
