Didnt even dawn on me that, that might not have ever happened in one night...pretty cool though and this PPV will go down in history. Pretty cool read below. And since Edge, Orton and Christian won on a personal level I am very happy haha

Thanks to reader Renn for help with the following statistics coming out of last night's WWE Backlash PPV from Providence, Rhode Island:

-- With Randy Orton winning the WWE title, Edge winning the World Heavyweight title and Christian winning the ECW title, Backlash was the first WWE Pay-Per-View where the top title for each brand changed hands in one night.

-- With his ECW title win over Jack Swagger last night, Christian became the first wrestler to leave WWE for TNA, win TNA's top title, then come back to WWE and win a brand's top title. There was some speculation not too long ago that WWE was holding a grudge against Christian for going to TNA, but him capturing the ECW title and working a program with the brand's top young rising star is an indication that his TNA run will not affect his WWE career moving forward.

-- Edge's World Heavyweight title win over John Cena was the Rated R Superstar's ninth major title run in WWE. The only other active WWE superstar with more major title wins is Triple H, who has held the WWE Championship & World Heavyweight championship a total of 13 times. This is Edge's 5th time winning the World Heavyweight Championship, tying him with Triple H for the most times holding that particular belt.

I was thinking about this last night, I had a small feeling it was the first time all the titles changed hands. I am glad as well, because the much better wrestlers won the titles in my opinion. Hopefully Orton will keep the title for a few months, same with Edge.

I think Orton will have a lenthy reign and I think its time Edge had one too. He's won a major championship THREE times this year already. At Royal Rumble, at No Way out and at Backlash. That's unbelievable.

I hope Dibiase and Rhodes get a PPV tag title shot against the Colons and beat them
