    Payback WWE Payback 2016 Discussion Thread



    So the biggest WrestleMania in history is done and dusted and Roman Reigns is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion to the shock of absolute nobody. But the entertainment extravaganza did throw up some surprises as did the night after Mania. We saw debuts for Baron Corbin, Apollo Crews, Enzo and Cass as well as The Vaudevillains on SmackDown. AJ Styles became the new number one contender and the Swiss Superman Cesaro made a terrific return. With so much going on and the chance Shane O'Mac could be sticking around what is going to happen at the first pay per view after WrestleMania 32, WWE Payback? Join us on May 1, 2016 to find out and discuss all the action right here on Wrestling Clique!

    Re: WWE Payback 2016 Discussion Thread

    Lots of new debuts so hopeful this could be quite a stacked card.

    Reigns - AJ gets me excited, despite the looming threat of an Authority reversal and the fact that only one man is going over and I'm intrigued to see how they book Apollo, Corbin and Cesaro going into it.

    My early predictions would be thus:
    Enzo & Cass v Dudleyz (which I'm more than fine with, nice experienced team helping some young up & comers along the way)
    Ambrose v Jericho (looks like they're revisiting this for some reason)
    Owens v Sami (provided Zayn isn't legitimately injured)
    Sasha v Charlotte v Nattie (just seems like they're pushing the latter as a legitimate threat in the women's division)
    AJ v Reigns (obvs)

    Cesaro needs a match too, but I can't see him with anyone yet...

    Edit: Wyatts v LON too? Maybe a trip tag team for the titles with New Day involved? I dunno...

    Sounds about right, Styles vs Reigns I'm so hyped for seeing Styles tear it up in WWE since coming over from TNA and NJPW the past few years. I don't think he'll win the title, but damn that main event is going to be better than Mania's match sorry Trips. Also I want to see a match with Cesaro and Jericho those two are too good not to have face off and Payback might be the perfect spot to get it done. Everytime I wanted Y2J to face Cesaro something came up and stopped that feud, Cesaro is back and Y2J is a white hot as a heel right now, do it WWE!

    Re: WWE Payback 2016 Discussion Thread

    I wouldn't be surprised if Triple H ends up showing up at Payback and if he does he ends up getting added into the championship match making it a Triple Threat Match with Reigns and Styles or Triple H somehow getting Reigns to join The Authority by being their new poster boy with Reigns turning heel either in the build-up towards Payback or turning heel right at Payback I wouldn't be surprised knowing how WWE thinks knowing how they operate

    Tbf, Trips does kayfabe have a rematch clause. There's no way in hell I can see Roman joining the Authority this quickly after Mania, though.

    If he does go with them it'll be when Seth returns, imo

    I don't think Roman joins The Authority even if he turns heel. I think he just becomes a bad ass heel tbh.

    I really hope I'm wrong but I think we get a Triple Threat at Payback with Reigns in a tweener role.

    It's actually kinda like in TNA when AJ didn't join Aces & Eights but was still technically a badass heel (of course TNA ruined it and turned him face).

    the curse of the promotional poster, Harper won't be there for sure and I think theres a very good chance Bray won't be there too.

    I could see Cesaro in a match with The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship when Miz's feud with Ryder is done. But I really don't expect Miz and Ryder to go the entire month.

    I thought that only applied to Madden video game covers.

    Re: WWE Payback 2016 Discussion Thread

    So Roman/AJ is a lock. It looks like we'll get Owens/Zayn, although they could have the Authority back on Monday and have Owens complain some more and we get him and Ryder added to the IC title match, but that's pretty unlikely really. Did they say the tournament for the tag titles ends at Payback or that the title shot will is on the PPV? Either way I think we're getting Enzo and Cass on the show; vs. the Dudleys if it's the final of the tournament, vs. the New Day if it's for the belts. League of Nations vs. the Wyatts? Bullet Club/Usos? Kalisto/Sin Cara perhaps? Baron Corbin vs. Dolph Ziggler? And it looks like we'll get another barnstormer from Charlotte and Nattie for the Women's title.

    So, who's more excited for this card already than they were for WrestleMania? I know I am.

    I actually think Vaudevillains win the tournament and establish themselves as a top heel tag team. I think Dudleys cost Enzo as Cass in the tournament and that's the second tag team feud you have. Don't see them going face Enzo and Cass vs. Face New Day.

    I could actually dig a VV/New Day program quite a bit.

    I see Enzo & Cass & The Dudleys fighting to a draw in one semi making Vaudevillians as winners when they beat The Uso's

    I do see your point and you could very well be right but if the tournament ends before Payback that gives us three straight up tag matches for the show, not to mention the possibility of a fourth with LoN/Wyatts (which can still work without Bray) and that makes the whole thing very tag heavy. It's not something I personally dislike but it would be quite out of character for WWE to do that. That said, there's no secondary women's feud going on at the minute it seems, so I wouldn't put it passed them to have dropped that in favour of concentrating on the tag division a bit more this month... although why a trade off is necessary is beyond me.

    I'm not against this in the slightest but when was the last time the WWE had a draw in a match? Not including NXT (which does work very differently) I think we got a kind of draw with Sasha and Becky a few weeks back but I can't remember if it was a draw or if it was shown to be one after they announced a winner to throw doubt on the result, and before that...? I'm stumped to think of a time the WWE utilised a draw in a televised situation. I'd honestly love them to start doing that though.

    Seriously, though. Becky Lynch is so great. SO GREAT.

    So far this card has been rather appealing. I just hope that WWE doesn't panic and do something silly with the card because the ratings for Raw haven't gone up immediately.
