It's April, which means it's (sigh) Backlash season. While this year's event features stars like Cody Rhodes, Brock Lesnar, and Bad Bunny, this post-WrestleMania show is not usually a highlight for WWE. That said, to give you all the watch-along you deserve, we dug into the archives and pulled up Backlash 2007, which features four of the era's top guys facing off: John Cena, Edge, Randy Orton, and Shawn Michaels. Does HBK mesh well with these 3 modern stars? How have Cena and Orton evolved over the years? And how is Edge twice as swole 16 years later? We'll answer all these questions and more during this Backlash Fatal 4-Way.
