WWE yesterday broadcast NXT TakeOver: In Your House, and as it was already announced, the company took the opportunity to perform part of the Backlash recordings on the same day, an event that will be broadcast next Sunday. The athletes of the Performance Center made public for Backlash starting at 8:30 in the morning and when the recordings ended they had to go to Full Sail to make the public at TakeOver in the afternoon.
Louis Dangoor of the specialized portal WrestleTalk today revealed more details about Backlash’s recordings. According to Dangoor, the company has not yet recorded the match between Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship. However, this week they will be recording content for Raw, SmackDown, and NXT, so there is a chance the fight will be recorded in the coming days.
On the other hand, Dave Meltzer has reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that the match between Edge and Randy Orton was recorded yesterday. WWE has been promoting this match under the nickname of “the greatest wrestling match in history”, so, according to Meltzer, the company wanted to record the fight in advance to ensure that it fulfilled what was promised.
