WWE Payback Predictions


Allstate Arena

Chicago, IL

Mask vs. Hair Kickoff Match 

El Torito vs. Hornswoggle

El Torito has been in WWE for so short of a time and the mask is his gimmick.  “Horny” has no real gimmick.

Winner: El Torito


Singles Match 

Rusev vs. Big E

Big E. had his very unimpressive push.  My guess is his goes longer than Rusev’s normal 60 seconds, but having the same result.

Winner: Rusev


WWE Divas Championship Match 

Paige © vs. Alicia Fox 

This is a tough one because it wouldn’t surprise me to see Alicia Fox win, but I don’t see a title change.  Maybe AJ Lee makes an appearance while her boyfriend is about 15 miles away watching he Blackhawks and interferes costing Paige the match.

Winner: Paige


WWE United States Championship Match 

Sheamus © vs. Cesaro

Oddsmakers have Cesaro as a favorite here, but i don’t see him getting the title back right now.  He had a long run with it before Ambrose and it did NOT do much for him.  WWE has been pretty good about not having short title runs lately.

Winner: Sheamus


WWE Intercontinental Championship Match 

Bad News Barrett © vs. Rob Van Dam

My logic and reasoning above goes the same for this match.  BNB is being pushed and giving RVD the strap does nothing for his career.  Having Barrett lose this quickly in his run slams the breaks on his comeback push.

Winner: Bad News Barrett


Last Man Standing Match 

John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt 

I spoke about blow off matches at this PPV and this is certainly one.  This is the rubber match and plenty of things can happen in a Last Man Standing Match.  Remember Cena’s last one against Ryback?  Ryback was the last one standing, but yet didn’t win???  No idea how this turns out, but I don’t see anyway Cena “loses.”  Yes, this is kind of a cop out, but Bray needs to move on.

Winner: John Cena


No Holds Barred Elimination Match

The Shield vs. Evolution

I really feel that Evolution cannot lose 2 in a row here.  I expect this to be the match of the night and Evolution throws everything at The Shield for victory.  I expect HHH to pin Roman Reigns to open up the door for a Summer Slam match.

Winner: Evolution


There is a segment scheduled where Daniel Bryan needs to make a decision on giving up his title or having Brie fired.  I don’t expect him to give it up, but I still love my idea where he gives up 1 of the titles and promises to get it back upon his return to unify it with his other strap.  Fantasy booking for me.
