The post-Wrestlemania 33 show WWE Payback so far has for confirmed matches. A thick and fast action is most likely to be seen as WWE looks to cash-in the Wrestlemania 33 rivalry. Here is our take on these four matches.
WWE Payback 2017 will give the opportunity to the new face of horror Bray Wyatt to reclaim his title. The master of mind game who lost his WWE championship title at Wrestlemania 33 to Randy Orton would like to hit back.
The Randy Orton who initially denied facing Bray Wyatt at Wrestlemania 33 by showing his loyalty to Wyatt. However, little did Wyatt know that it was a master plan of Randy to beat Wyatt in his own game. The Viper not challenged but also defeated Bray Wyatt for the championship on the grandest stage of all.
After the Superstar Shake-up, both the stars belongs to two different brands. However, Bray Wyatt has made clear he is not done yet and he would be coming for his title. At Payback Bray Wyatt will go one on one with Randy Orton in a House of Horror match.
Our Predication: Winner Randy Orton
This will be a match to watch, it may be the final chapter in the storyline. The two former best friend Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho will face each other in the US Title rematch. The rivalry began when Kevin Owens who was assisted by Jericho in his several title defense betrayed Jericho.
Kevin Owens not only made to the list of Jericho but he also attacked and injured his former best friend. The first undisputed champion then came back and cost Kevin the title against Goldberg. Kevin though settled the score by defeating Jericho for US Title Match at Wrestlemania 33.
Payback is definitely on cards as both the superstars already got drafted to different brands due to Superstar Shake-up.
Our Prediction: Winner Kevin Owens
Nobody drives the crowd crazy like Hardy Boyz. The reaction of the crowd was no different at Wrestlemania 33 when Hardy Boyz made their comeback. At Payback 2017, Hardy Boyz will be having un uphill task to beat the magic of unique tag team combination of Celtic Warrior Sheamus and Cesaro.
The former title holders already vowed to ground the high-flying Hardy Boyz. However, it is not going to be an easy task, Hardy Boyz has plenty of experience behind and their in-ring chemistry is beyond comparison. On the other hand, Sheamus & Cesaro are the two guys with brute power and sheer strength.
It will be interesting to see whether the brogue kick & Swiss uppercut can come over the twist of fate.
Our Prediction: Winner Hardy Boyz
Roman Reigns would definitely like to take this opportunity as goes one on one with the monster Braun. Payback will be on the minds of Roman who suffered multiple injuries due to the savage attack by Braun Strowman.
This match is expected to show some sheer animosity as the monster is on a rampage. He not only injured Roman Reigns couple of weeks back but also flipped over the ambulance carrying Roman Reigns.
The big dog who defeated The Undertake at Wrestlemania 33, will definitely like to make Strowman pay for all his action and suffering his received. After is his ring shattering performance of Braun will Roman be able to come good or will the monster be having the last laugh?
Our Predication: Winner Roman Reigns
Immediately after joining the main roster of WWE, Samoa Joe put everybody on notice. This heavyweight wrestler is deceptively quick and athletic.
The Architect may have overcome Triple H at Wrestlemania 33, however, he will have to face a strong challenge at Payback as he will go one one with Samoa Joe. Samoa Joe, injured Seth Rollins almost two months back, bringing his chances of appearing at Wrestlemania 33 to the bare minimum.
Seth has time and again proved that he is a big match winner, but can he overcome this threat of Samoan submission machine at Payback.
Our Predication: Winner Samo Joe
The wicked drama queen Alexa Bliss is all set for the womens championship title shot. The former women’s champion who got drafted to Raw after superstar shake-up won herself an opportunity for the title in a fatal four-way match. Apparently, it is the same type of match in which Bayley retained her championship at Wrestlemania 33.
Whereas Bayley was able to retain her title at Wrestlemania 33, Alexa lost her women’s championship title to Naomi at Wrestlemania 33.
Our Predication: Winner Alexa Bliss
