WWE Backlash starts soon, at 7 p.m. Eastern, 4 p.m. Pacific today (Sunday, June 14).
Its pre-show is likely to start at 6 p.m. or 6:30 p.m. Eastern.
The Greatest? Today? Yes, WWE Backlash 2020 live streams are here, so we can learn if WWE was able to chew the massive claim it bit off. Yes, WWE has raised the stakes for the Edge and Randy Orton WrestleMania rematch, to a point where mocking WWE for its claims has overshadowed the upcoming match.
Yes, when Charly Caruso said that Edge vs Randy Orton at Backlash — a simple one-fall singles match — has the chance to be the greatest wrestling match of all time, we all had the same reaction. "What the hell?"

A lot of the hilarity inherent in this match is that Randy Orton hasn't had a match of the year contender in years (if ever), and the pair's Last Man Standing match at WrestleMania 36 was not great, or even close.
That being said, we'd love to be surprised. And reportedly the pair tried their hardest (the match is already taped) to make it great. Relatedly, WWE Backstage is bringing Bret Hart on next week as a guest, and we're guessing he might not rate it 10/10.
Elsewhere on the card, our eyes are drawn to Apollo Crews US Championship defense against Andrade. With Paul Heyman being removed from his position as Raw's Executive Director, we're especially concerned Crews push might come to a crashing halt.

How to watch WWE Backlash 2020 online with a VPN
While the WWE Network (more on that below) is widely available and quite affordable, if you’re away from home and logging into public Wi-Fi to stream the PPV (which I’ve done in the U.K., among other places), you might want to check out a VPN. You’re using that Wi-FI network to cut down on data usage, but it opens up any non-secured activity to snooping, and a virtual private network will hide your online activities from other people on the same Wi-Fi network.
WWE Backlash 2020 live stream via the WWE Network
There's only one way to watch, really. Get the WWE Network fired up, because the pre-show has begun!
The WWE Network, which costs $9.99 and includes a free 1-month trial for first-time subscribers, is the best place to watch Backlash 2020. Available nearly everywhere, one month of the WWE Network costs 18% as much as a normal PPV (WWE pushed PPVs during WrestleMania season, but they've calmed that language for MITB).View Deal
