WWE Payback 4/30Raw exclusive PPV but will feature a wrestler or two from smackdown
Bray Wyatt (raw) vs Randy Orton (c) (SD) for WWE World Heavyweight Championship (SD's Title) -- House of Horrors Match
Kevin Owens (c) (SD) vs Chris Jericho (Raw) for US Title
The Hardy Boyz (c) vs. Cesaro/Sheamus - WWE Tag Team Titles Match
Neville (c) vs Austin Aries - Cruiserweight Championship
Braun Strowman vs Roman Reigns; Match isn't official yet but should be in the next week or so; Apparently it could be a gimmick match; IE; Ambulance Match or Stretcher Match
Word is, Brock Lesnar could interfere causing Strowman to lose, setting up the Lesnar/Strowman feud that will led to a title match in either June PPV or July PPV.
Card so far. I'm sure we'll have a divas match or two during the PPV as well.Advertisement
Apr 19, 17, 11:37 AM #2Reigns vs. Strowman made official and Seth Rollins/Samoa Joe made official for Payback
Jinder Mahal won a 6 man elimination match last night on Smackdown to earn a title shot against Randy Orton at Backlash, so we know who's winning the title at Payback between him and Bray
Apr 19, 17, 12:13 PM #3Bayley (C) vs. Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women's Championship too.
Apr 19, 17, 12:17 PM #4I really like a lot of these matches, but it seems to me like each outcome is pretty easily determined, except for maybe the Cruiserweight match.
I don't see any way Jericho beats Owens. I don't see Bray beating Orton for the reason ASB explained above. Can't see WWE taking the titles off the Hardy Boyz this quickly. Strowman will beat Reigns to build for a match with Lesnar. But since McMahon loves him some Roman Reigns, they had him get banged up so badly in order to save Reigns in the loss while also building Braun. As for the women, it feels like we're building to a Bayley/Nia or Bayley/Sasha match, so I can't see her losing to Alexa.
Maybe I'm wrong on these, but while the matchups look really good, I just don't see a lot of unpredictability.
I wonder if they'll add a Dean Ambrose/Miz match. I would expect them to.

Apr 19, 17, 12:43 PM #6Have heard that Lesnar could interfere in the Reigns/Strowman match setting up the Lesnar/Strowman feud, leading to a title shot for Strowman this summer
Also hearing that a stipulation for the Reigns/Strowman match could be an ambulance match.

People who say Roman can't wrestle, though, are crazy. He is really solid in the ring. His mic skills need a lot of work, but he's a gifted wrestler.
WWE should turn him heel. I think he stands a better chance of getting over with the crowd eventually that way. But Vince won't pull that trigger because he sells a lot of merchandise as a face. New Day did the same thing when they turned face.
