WWE Payback takes place this Sunday. The Monday Night RAW exclusive PPV emulates live from the SAP Center in Los Angeles, California. Here is a preview for WWE Payback 2017.
Bray Wyatt VS Randy Orton: House of Horrors Match
With Bray Wyatt now on RAW, it is safe to assume this shall be the culminating bout in this feud. While Wyatt heads over to RAW, Randy Orton shall enter a program with Jinder Mahal over on Smackdown Live!. However as for the match this Sunday they shall be clashing in a House of Horrors Match, but the WWE Championship shall not be on the line. I believe that Bray Wyatt should be the victor, as he needs something to galvanize his run into the summer. Therefore I am predicting a win for Bray Wyatt in the House of Horrors match.
Predicition:Bray Wyatt To Defeat Randy Orton.
Kevin Owens VS Chris Jericho: WWE United States Championship
Once again this shall be another cross-brand bout. Reigning WWE United States Champion Kevin Owens is now part of Smackdown Live, additionally he has been begun a feud with AJ Styles. Thus with this in mind I would assume the company would prefer to have their feud take place. So with this in mind it does not appear as if Chris Jericho shall not regain the US Champion. Furthermore this is evident due to the fact that Y2J is set to depart WWE in a few short months. I firmly believe KO shall retain the US Champion and finally end his feud with his former best friend.
Prediction:Kevin Owens To Defeat Chris Jericho & Retain the WWE United States Championship.
The Hardy Boyz VS Cesaro & Sheamus: WWE RAW Tag Team Championships
It is 2017 and The Hardy Boyz are defending the WWE RAW Tag Team Championships on PPV, yes. Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy who won the Tag Titles back at Wrestlemania 33 have made an impact upon their comeback. On the other hand their opponents Cesaro & Sheamus are former Tag Team Champions in their own right, additionally they shall be interesting opponents for Matt & Jeff. At this point it does not appear as if WWE shall end The Hardy Boyz title reign, thus I believe they shall retain the titles.
Prediction:The Hardy Boyz To Defeat Cesaro & Sheamus To Retain the WWE RAW Tag Team Championships.
Roman Reigns VS Braun Strowman
Braun Strowman has been a destructive path and it has been golden to watch. While we are entitled to question their call for the ‘Dumpster Match’ this past week on RAW, no one is shunning Strowman’s efforts. Also who can forget when he turned the Ambulance over on RAW a few weeks ago? As for Roman Reigns things have not been so great since Wrestlemania, as a win over The Undertaker may not have served as beneficial as it should have, at this point. Considering that Reigns remains in line for a mega push leading up to next year, it would not surprise me to see him defeat Strowman.
Predicition: Roman Reigns To Defeat Braun Strowman.
Seth Rollins VS Samoa Joe
This match has the potential to be best on the card. Seth Rollins has continued to re-build his redemption after his lengthy injury. After defeating Triple H at Wrestlemania 33 he has been feuding with companion Samoa Joe, who has been a great commodity for RAW. Since his call-up from NXT Joe has worked strongly on the brand, as he shall prove to be a worthy member of the roster. On this night I believe that Rollins shall put Joe down for the three-count, essentially culminating this feud.
Predicition: Seth Rollins To Defeat Samoa Joe.
Bayley VS Alexa Bliss: WWE RAW Women’s Championship
Just weeks after her move to RAW, Alexa Bliss earned the number one contender’s spot for the WWE RAW Women’s Championship. This is something which is refreshing as she is a new opponent for Bayley to face, as RAW has served repetitive feuds in their women’s division. However I just cannot see Bayley dropping the title just yet or in-fact to Bliss, as her time on RAW has not come just yet. Therefore for now I believe Bayley shall defeat Alexa Bliss and retain the Women’s Champion.
Bayley To Defeat Alexa Bliss & Retain the WWE RAW Women’s Champion.
Neville VS Austin Aeries: WWE Cruiserweight Championship
In recent weeks it would seem as if the Cruiserweight division is turning a corner. Current WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville has revived the division himself, additionally his opponent Austin Aeries have been at the vocal point of the division and its mini-revival. The two battled at Wrestlemania earlier this month, where Neville defeated Aeries to retain his title. However it seems as if this would be the right time for Aeries to capture his first WWE Cruiserweight Champion. Overall I believe Austin Aeries will defeat Neville and become the new WWE Cruiserweight Champion.
Prediction: Austin Aeries To Defeat Neville & Become WWE Cruiserweight Champion.
