Powell’s POV: WWE added the Raw Tag Title match since our previous update. We’ll find out tonight if Edge vs. Orton is the greatest wrestling match ever (spoiler – Edge already said it can’t be). Join me for live coverage beginning with the one-hour Kickoff Show that will be followed by the main show, which begins at 6CT/7ET. Dot Net Members will hear an exclusive audio review co-hosted by Jake Barnett and I on Sunday night. ProWrestling.net Live will return on Monday with Jake and I taking your Backlash and additional pro wrestling calls at PWAudio.net.
