WWE PayBack 2020 Predictions

One week after Summerslam, WWE present Payback from their Thunderdome in Florida. A big main event set but the rest of the card doesn’t feel so stand out.

WWE Universal Championship
No Holds Barred Match
The Fiend vs Braun Strowman vs Roman Reigns

Last week at Summerslam The Fiend defeated Strowman to win the Universal Championship. Afterwords Reigns returned and attacked everyone to set up this triple threat. I believe that The Fiend won the championship to ensure he stays strong and didn’t take a loss against Strowman.

Roman Reigns will walk out of this match champion pinning Braun Strowman and keeping The Fiend strong. The question is will we see Reigns and The Fiend go into a separate feud? If they do both will look weaker as neither can lose. Reigns is new relationship with Paul Heyman looks for an interesting few months with Reigns.

Winner and New WWE Universal Champion: Roman Reigns

WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships
Bayley and Sasha Banks vs Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler

Jax and Baszler are a make shift team and they will fall out leading to Banks and Bayley retaining. Sasha Banks will pick up the win to further put across the fact that she is the one carrying Bayley.

Winners and Still WWE Tag Team Champions: Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler

WWE United States Championship Match
Apollo Crews vs Bobby Lashley

Last week for Summerslam I predicted that Crews would defeat MVP to set up a match with fellow Hurt Business member Bobby Lashley. I believe this will be the end of the road for Crews as champion as Lashley will pick up the win.

Winner and New WWE United States Champion: Bobby Lashely

Randy Orton vs Keith Lee

Keith Lee lost his NXT Championship last Saturday at Takeover XXX but made his debut on Raw squaring off with Randy Orton. Lee has huge potential if not wasted and a programme with Orton could really show what Lee is about. Lee to pick up the win but Orton to get his heat back either after the match or the next night on Raw.

Winner: Keith Lee

Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio vs Seth Rollins and Buddy Murphy

As predicted last week with Summerslam we get a tag match at PayBack. Should be a fun match like last week but Rey Mysterio picks up the win pinning Murphy in readiness for Mysterio vs Rollins on Raw.

Winners: Rey and Dominik Mysterio

Matt Riddle vs King Corbin

Since joining Smackdown Matt Riddle hasn’t really done anything other than a small feud with Styles but that was only a few matches. Riddle needs a showcase win here to show everyone what he can do for anyone that hasn’t seen him in NXT

Winner: Matt Riddle

Big E vs Sheamus

Big E picks up the win here to further elevate him up the card. Sheamus doesn’t need the win but Big E does.

Winner: Big E

Apart from the main event I will imagine this show will just be fun of the mill. I can’t imagine this was WWE original plan for the show. They must have wanted this date for another project but had to cancel it. The only news coming out I predict is from the main event.
